Service MATTERS!

What can WE do for YOU?

Today “service” is on my mind.  What kind of service do you expect from your real estate professional?  What kind of service are they committed to provide to you?  It’s an important question, don’t you think?  This is probably your single largest investment you’ll ever make, and whether you are buying or selling, it’s a BIG deal – even if you do it (which you probably will) more than once in your life, it’s a BIG deal EVERY time.

Sometimes we go to a restaurant and expect a level of service based on the prices – wouldn’t you say?  Well I say phooey!  You should expect impeccable service each and every time no matter what the price tag – I had the privilege of visiting a restaurant in Austin TX a few months ago who believes customer service is their #1 obligation (along with an excellent meal, mind you) and this restaurant is in a gas station – the most delicious BBQ, sweet tea, etc…  mmmmmm….. they made sure we had a platinum level experience –

What does this mean for real estate?  Whether you are purchasing an $80,000 condo or selling a $3,000,000 home our commitment is for the BEST customer service EVERY SINGLE TIME…  EVERY TIME!  You are placing your trust in us to guide you through a real estate transaction – you’re not simply picking up a pack of gum and a bottle of shampoo!

So give us the opportunity and we will show you our stuff!  We bring our A game every time, with every client, every day!  We hope to serve you (and your friends, families, colleagues, neighbors, coworkers, etc…)  sometime soon.  Give us a try… you won’t be disappointed!

Happy Wednesday!

Grateful for What I Have – Happy Holidays

Hello folks…

Today I am reflecting on 2011 for all of the great things that came my way…

#1 thing to be GRATEFUL for is Joan Stansfield!

Joining forces with Joan midway through the year was truly a blessing for me!  We are a wonderful pair where I feel that one plus one definitely equals WAY more than 2 – maybe even 4 or 5!  She bring such a terrific energy and a huge heart to our business!

#2 thing to be GRATEFUL for is all of our clients!  

In 2011, we have had the pleasure of helping over 30 families buy, sell, rent or invest in real estate – and it’s been a great year!  We know that as we grow we will be able to help so many more and that is thrilling – the team is growing and we look forward to continuing to assist you with ALL of your real estate needs – and beyond – whether you just need to consider refinancing or re-decorating; whether you are re-landscaping or experiencing a plumbing disaster; whether you want a book recommendation or need an electrician – we hope to be your one-stop-shop!  Concierge level, Client Centric, Focused on YOU!

#3 thing to be GRATEFUL for is the state of the market in the DC area!

We are so fortunate to be in an area that has not suffered such great losses as many of our colleagues around the country have.  We are relatively stable, homes are selling, values are holding, interest rates are STILL unbelievable!

Life is good, my friends.  So thank you for an amazing 2011 and here’s to a healthy and prosperous 2012!
