“To climb Mt. Everest – hire a Sherpa!”

Friday, September 25th, 2015

According to Wikipedia – “Sherpas are highly regarded as elite mountaineers and experts in their local terrain. They were immeasurably valuable to early explorers … particularly for expeditions to climb Mr. Everest.” Even experienced mountaineers from other parts of the world recognize the value of the local expert.

Buying, selling, or investing in real estate can be a lot like mountain climbing. You can experience the exhilaration of breathtaking views, panoramic vistas, and new adventures. You can also run into the dangers of avalanches, rock slides, and falls.

Our team visualizes our role as that of the Sherpas for your real estate transaction. We’ve done hundreds of transactions before and have helped hundreds of buyers and sellers in the Citrus County market navigate the real estate terrain to a successful closing.

We stay current with changes like the new federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau regulations that will radically change the closing process for all closings involving a loan that take effect on October 3rd, 2015. We track the changes in the local market. We stay current with technology and marketing tools.

When you, or someone you know and care about, decide it’s time to climb your real estate Mt. Everest by buying, selling, or investing in real estate, we want to be the first number you call. As the Sherpas of the Citrus County Real Estate market, we are here to serve your dreams with honesty, integrity, and expertise!

Real estate knowledge and information can often help you maximize and protect one of your largest lifetime investments – YOUR HOME. For many of us, the investment we have in our primary residence (and possible investment properties), constitutes the largest investment opportunity we will undertake in our lifetime.

That is why for the last 10 years, we have made it our business to be some of the most informed real estate professionals in the Citrus County Real Estate market. While national real estate information such as interest rates, supply of homes, average sales price is interesting and helpful, the actual value of your home is very local market specific. Our research and experience suggest that in the local market the closing of the nuclear power plant, the strength of the local job market, how cold the winters are in the Northeast and Midwest, the number of hurricanes that hit Florida this year, all ultimately affect the value of your home.

While sharing our market research and information with our valued clients, it has been our privilege to help over 800 parties close over 400 real estate transactions (i.e. more than $45 million in sales) since January of 2006. In 2014 alone we closed over $7 million in sales, and so far in 2015 we have closed over $5.5 million.

When you, or someone you know and care about, needs help with one of your largest lifetime investments, we want to be the first place you call for help! We are here to serve your dreams with honesty, integrity, and expertise.

Thanks to all our Clients

We again want to thank all of you who have given us the pleasure of “serving your dream” over the last number of years.  We finished 2009 as multimillion dollar producers in the top 14 agents in the county.  So far in the first 5 months of 2010 we have been in the top 10 most of the time.

Again, thank you to all of you who have made this possible.

Advantages of a Team

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

The Citrus County Dream Team was one of the top 12 teams in Citrus County for total dollars sold in 2008 (based on the Citrus County MLS residential sales).  I was sitting here thinking about some of the reasons that we have been able to rise into the top 2% of REALTORS in this county.

For some, I suspect our slogan, “Our team serves your dream“, connects with the reason that they have enjoyed working with us in their real estate transaction(s).  Customer service is a high priority for us.  We believe your home is often one of your most important (and most valuable) assests.  We are excited when we have an opportunity to help you sell, buy, or invest in a way that allows you to move forward with some of your life goals.  Perhaps it is a job transfer, or upsizing, or downsizing, or a host of other major life decisions.  Our goal is to provide you with the quality service to allow you to move on with your life dreams.

Others seem to appreciate our mission statement of “Providing quality service with honesty, integrity, and expertise“.   Each of these three words resonate with clients.  Honesty means that we will tell you what we honestly think you house should sell for in the current market.  We don’t inflate these numbers to “buy” your listing and then come back to get a more realistic price later.  Integrity means we will follow through on what we say.  Every attempt is made to “under promise and over deliver”.  Expertise is where we have a chance to go beyond the role of a standard real estate agent and function as a real estate consultant.  We do extensive market research on the Citrus County market and this allows us to provide all our clients with information that can be a powerful asset in any side of a real estate transaction.

Finally, I believe everyone that has work with us appreciates the fact that they are working with a team of professionals.  We operate our real estate business like a business.  We expect that you will find working with us like working with other professional firms - your accounting firm, legal firm, or medical team.  By having a team in place we can specialize in different areas of the real estate process and can provide a level of service that would not be possible for a single real estate agent working alone.

In summary, I am thankful for what working as a team has allowed us to achieve in the Citrus County Real Estate market.
