Response in 24 hrs. or less.
Please wait! It won’t take us long.
I know there are thousands of real estate agents in our service area.
We are not all the same.
Out of thousands of agents, only two others received the Three Best Rated® customer service award.
Only 5% received the latest Fivestar Professional customer service award.
Only a small handful have over 400+ independently verified reviews.
Listing agents are not all the same.
We consistently reach the top charts in sales each year for the metro. Top ten, top five, even number one.
We are more successful in selling our client’s homes because we are willing to spend more to market them.
We are also willing to charge a more reasonable commission fee (4.5% max.) while backing up our services with a cancel anytime for no charge policy.
Buyers agents are not all the same.
We can provide 100% availability in any market conditions. This is because we are a small team and not an individual agent that is limited by their own personal capacity.
We have obtained some of the highest levels of negotiation training available.
We have earned additional certificates to educate our clients on any type of home purchase: new construction, green homes, short sales, foreclosures, and more.
We are not the same.
We humbly request that you wait no more than 24 hours for our response. Our current clients are our first priority and our future clients are our next priority! ~ Stephen FitzMaurice
