The AREA Team
You loathe typical real estate agent bios. Don’t worry, we do too. They’re like cardboard — stiff, bland, and identical to every other bio out there. Instead of boasting ad nauseum about awards and accomplishments, you’re not interested in, we're taking the novel approach of actually giving you what you want — real answers to questions you’re probably wondering right now.
Will you return my calls and emails?
Yes. Without question. We realize this is one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents. We get dozens of calls and emails daily, and we work hard to reply as quickly as possible.
I’ve met many Realtors who are jerks. Are you guys?
Depends on who you ask. If you ask certain agents who have stood between our clients and their real estate goals, they'll probably say "yes". A handful of people think we leave golden footprints in the sand. Those are the two extremes, and most people's opinion falls somewhere in the middle.
Here's what we can tell you:
We're honest and candid. We take pride in being approachable and friendly. And if you need a quick real estate brain or a strong dose of honesty, you’re in the right place. Loyalty to family, clients, and friends is one of our core values.
Want to really find out if we're jerks? Mess with one of those people.
Do you have experience doing exactly what I need?
Until you tell us what you need, there is no way of knowing. These are "strong suits" of the AREA Team working in Residential and Commercial Real Estate:
* Selling and Buying
* REO (Bank Owned Properties)
* Property Management
* 1031 Tax Exchange
* Prop 60/90
* Mortgage Purchase and Refinancing
If your goal or situation isn't represented on that list, don't worry. Contact us anyway. If we can't help, we can get you referred to someone who can.
