Relocation Preparation a Memorable & Referable Experience

Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

 Relocation is one of our niches and while there are agents

who shy away from it...because it is more work than other

Southeastern Wisconsinniches...and for less money after the referring party is paid. ..

we enjoy out positions as "ambassadors for the state we have called home for a lifetime."  The counties of Kenosha, Racine, Walworth, Waukesha, Milwaukee, Washington, Ozaukee and Jefferson are all part of how we define our market area and know the territory very well.  If a family is looking for a subdivision, a condo in the city, a little bit country with some land and a hobby farm...close to this or midway from that...we know exactly where they can find the house they will call home. 

    As important as what we call our "Butcher, BakerButcher Baker Candlestick Maker and Candlestick Maker" list....(The best pizza, coolest Custard, unique food store, nearest shopping center, School system specialties) are the "creature comforts" and personalization that make that new house really feel like home. 

      We sometimes suggest it is best to live in a house before you decide what the colors, textures, etc. are that you will change to call it home....and there are other times where the "disruption" of the color of the carpet, the fixtures in pastel shades of old....the asphalt driveway that should be sealed before the snow flies...just can't wait for another minute. 

    We understand that....and the best way to handle the "gotta do" list is to make it on your second showing....use the pictures enlarged from each room taken from the internet....and decide which are the items that get priority.

   handyman    We take the list and the day of the inspection, we have the people there who can give them quotes on flooring, painting, asphalt re-surfacing, etc., additional outlets or the half bath...additional or utility sink that will make that house become their home.   If they choose...they can have the work done as soon as the ink is dry on the closing documents...or at the very least know the costs of the changes that they want to make and schedule them as they wish.

        One less interruption for the Seller....a closer look for the Buyers and a faster way for the family to feel more settled in their new community.

       Anyone wanting to relocate to southeastern Wisconsin should call the Hansons, Broker Associates with Keller Williams Realty and honored to be of service for all things real estate in southeastern Wisconsin.

Good morning Sally.

For those agents who do not want to "get involved" in relocation, they are missing out on a niche that has its rewards.

I have a friend that moved to Kenosha, but she only asked me for a referral after she didn't like the Realtor they had chosen.

Hi Sally and David- wish we'd had you as an agent for our moves!!! Relocation specialists are such a big help and I love how you work to coordinate so that sellers don't have to be disrupted by contractors and buyers have the information they need to go forth with their new home.

Sally and David, great idea to provide this information to your buyers. I work with those who are relocating to our area to retire all the time.  As many have said it can be more time consuming, however, it's very gratifying to know you are able to help the buyers and other local companies by providing referrals to businesses who are reliable.

Like you I also focus on relocation and have since my move to SoCal from Boston in 2005. I love being able to facilitate a big move for those who are excited about moving here, and helping them cope with all the challenges a relocation entails.

The tips about the inspection and including other vendors is a good one and works well. And the challenge for those who are loving is so much has to be done from a distance...that's how we can help!

Sally K. & David L. Hanson so glad Kathy featured this post. Relocation is a different aspect of our business that is handled differently than typical sells and buys. Excellent tips for those wanting to up their game on relocation market.

Expect you to be busy with factories to be constructed.... This area is close to Tri-State Tollway and O'hara mid America.

Good luck,
