Service for Long After the Purchase of Your Home in Glen Allen, VA

Real Estate Agent with RVA HomePRO Realtor with Keller Williams serving Hanover, Henrico, Chesterfiled and Richmond, Virginia 0225205023

As a RVA HomePRO one of the services I always offer my clients in Glen Allen, Ashland, Mechanicsville, or any home I help someone with is to help them long after the transaction is completed. I look forward to the calls where a client or their friends and family need help with something around the home so I can refer quality contractors to help them out because my service extends far beyond the closing of their home. It's sort of like a personal Angie's List with some added benefits: no subscription fee and an advocate if Chimney Inspectionsomething doesn't turn out like they want it.

With the cold weather snap we have been experiencing here in Richmond a client who closed on her forever home this past summer wanted to light a fire in her wood burning fireplace. She wasn't sure if she could use fire logs instead of real wood. Since she did not get a fireplace inspection before closing  (even though I recommended one) I encouraged her to get the fireplace, flue, and chimney inspected before she did anything with the fireplace and that the inspector would be a better person to consult on that. I gave her some great chimney people to call - people I knew would do a great job.

Another great reason to call your RVA HomePRO and use them as a resource far beyond a home sale or purchase. As RVA HomePRO I have connections and relationships with great people who will stand behind their work. And if it's not up to snuff I'll help out to make it right. Think about it, that contractor not only wants to make the client happy, they want to make me happy too because they know I will continue to refer business when they do the right thing and meet or exceed the standards they promise. 

RVAHomePROAs a RVA HomePRO I have contacts for all sorts of services in our local community. If you're looking for a plumber, electrician or even a great place to eat in the Richmond, Va metropolitan area I can help. Never hesitate to use me as your resource and you can find some of my favorite people and places on my Facebook page.

Michael this is great customer service that you offer your clients.  Issues or questions I am sure always pop up days or weeks after the purchase and the fact that you are still there at their side is a great attribute!!!  You should be the Realtor of choice in Henrico County!!

Being that person they can count on after the sale and even years down the road certainly leads to some great word of mouth advertising.  I know, cause it's how I run my business too.
