Our Story

Real estate is high stakes, emotionally and financially. It demands business and emotional intelligence. Our goal is to help our clients net the most money while also nurturing their home dreams and the community that we share. Are we a good match? Here’s what we’re about:

1. Clients for life. We serve our clients’ long-term interests. Often this begins with buying or selling, but we help beyond (or in-between) buying and selling. We inform remodeling and refinancing choices, price opinions, and other expertise. Maybe buying or selling is not right for you now. Agents with a focus on short-term commission cannot give that kind of advice. We are in it for the long term; what’s best for our clients is best for us.

2. The right agent matters. Home values exist within a range and then a million details converge (supply and demand, staging, marketing, negotiating, etc.) to determine the final value. We help you the achieve the best results within the range, typically netting more than the cost of the commission.

3. Flawless professional execution. Satisfied clients. Transactions can be complicated, fast-paced, and overwhelming. Our business is built on understanding our clients’ needs, educating them about the process, and keeping them informed. Skills and business systems that we bring to every transaction include:

Market expertise. Online data has made real estate more accessible, yet the avalanche of information makes experience more important than ever. Market value varies due to subtleties: neighborhood pockets, floor plans, and the distinct perspectives of buyers and sellers. We have a wealth of experience to apply to your situation.
Communication. The right amount of information is key. Our clients receive weekly reports as well as ongoing updates based on their particular needs. Clients that are not in active transactions receive semi-annual updates as well.
Problem solving & teamwork. We get things done. We are prompt and set clear expectations. We have a network of skilled pros for every real estate problem. Steep slope? Leaky roof? Old sewer line? Cantankerous neighbor? No problem is insurmountable if it is dealt with head on.
4. Win-win negotiation. 
Our culture mythologizes “hard ball” negotiators who crush their “opponents.” In our experience this approach kills deals. An aggressive early “win” often erodes trust later. We establish credibility by listening carefully, objectively weighing evidence, and employing creativity. We strive to understand the needs of both sides to capitalize on win/win opportunities.

Our Team

The best agents leverage the expertise of many parties.  Working efficiently with buyers, sellers, lenders, contractors, inspectors and others to adhere to strict timelines is possible because of trust built over time.  Agents that have reliable support networks perform better.

We have assembled an outstanding group to manage and serve our clients.  Our complementary strengths and aligned business philosophies make us great partners as well as friends.Together, we ensure timely action and complete coverage in even the most harried situations.  Our partnership balances our needs to occasionally travel or attend tee-ball games while continuously providing our clients with the best service.
