As a licensed real estate agent in Florida I work with investors- specializing in finding buying opportunities in the undervalued and distressed housing market.
Thank you for visiting this blog. A vital component to the success of our blog is community interaction. We encourage you to leave comments, ask questions and offer feedback so that we may continue to build an interactive online community here.
The real estate and construction markets have been hard during this depressed financial period. The Chinese symbol for Yin & Yang equates literally to CHAOS and OPPORTUNITY. Yin Yang are complimentary opposites. I feel this is an excellent way to describe our current market conditions. In other words, the madness, the frustration, the CHAOS of today's market is also tomorrow's investment opportunities.
WHO ARE YOU WORKING WITH?
We specialize in investment opportunities- foreclosures, short sales, and rehab investments. As your licensed representative to handle your real estate transaction you gain access to a company with VALUE added service. I am not only a licensed REAL ESTATE AGENT (Highlight Realty), I am also a CERTIFIED GENERAL CONTRACTOR (Hoadley Construction) and owner of a full service PROPERTY MANAGEMENT & MAINTENANCE company (HPS COMPANIES.)
This means I can often offer SIGNIFICANT discounted service fees/ commissions on your real estate transactions when you utilize my company for your General Contracting services. If you have any questions as to how my services may benefit you, please contact me today to discuss your project needs. In most cases I can return your inquiry within an HOUR.
My clients have access to well developed expert service and a strong network of industry professionals.
We have the means to satisfy all your project needs, whether listing a property for sale or looking to buy, let an industry PROFESSIONAL do the research for you- me!
REHAB, INVESTMENT & CONSTRUCTION- This is our #1 area of expertise. We work with home buyers and investors alike who purchase property that may need some TLC. As a licensed independent REAL ESTATE AGENT and a licensed CERTIFIED GENERAL CONTRACTOR I have the autonomy to often negotiate significant discounts on your real estate transaction fees and commissions when you utilize my services for your construction needs. Whether you are looking to rehab a new property you just bought, renovate your existing home, remodel a bathroom, kitchen or build out or renovate a commercial space for your business- I can help.
RENT TO OWN- This is one of my favorite market segments. Why? For the the right candidate this can be an excellent path to new home ownership. We work with investors who will often hold the mortgage on your property while you lease to own. Some RENT TO OWN clients are able to obtain independent financing through traditional lenders while others work directly with the property owner who holds the note and establishes the terms of the loan.
PROPERTY MANAGEMENT & MAINTENANCE- I have an affiliated company, HPS Companies (Hoadley Professional Service Companies) that can satisfy ALL your property management and maintenance needs. We work with home owners and investors that need help managing their property/ properties. Investors find VALUE in our service as we can offer turn key service- from finding a client to rent their home to overseeing or performing routine maintenance service. We can work with your existing vendors or act as a single source turn key vendor that does it all: yard and landscape maintenance, pool service and maintenance, cleaning, painting, preparing investment properties for new tenants after the previous tenant moved out- we can help in every aspect of your property management and maintenance needs.
BUYERS-Most of our clients use the Internet to find properties of interest. We can help identify listings that will satisfy your needs- price, location, function and curb appeal.
Buying a new property can be an exciting and stressful event. We provide the tools and resources to assist you along every step of your real estate transaction.
Do you need help in establishing a fair purchase price by research and Comparative Market Analysis (CMA?) What is a CMA? A CMA is a comparison of the real estate you are considering for purchase to comparable closed real estate transactions that have sold with similarities in the property that you are considering.
From finding the piece of real estate that you've been looking for, to presenting your offer, obtaining financing to the closing of the deal- we can assist in every step of your real estate transaction.
SELLERS- There are many reasons to use a professional real estate agent when selling your home. Finding a buyer can be a stressful event. When you list your property with Highlight Realty, you are on board with a team of industry leading professionals that are dedicated to your cause. Our strength is in our network. This network has helped us develop and implement on of the most aggressive marketing campaigns available to SELLERS in today's market. Your personalized marketing campaign may include exposure in television, Internet sites, virtual tours, newspapers, magazines and more. Contact me today to learn more.
