We are often asked to describe in detail how we approach the Real Estate Industry a little differently from some agents. First of all, we believe that people are the most important part of our profession, we know the quality of our work really affects people's lives, and we usually wind up becoming friends with our clients.
Secondly, we believe in quick response and useful ongoing communication. Here are some other important benefits to you:
We work as a team. That doubles our information, our skills and our capacity to help you. We are consistently in the top 20 KW agents in our Market Center (with over 600 agents, it's the second largest KW Market Center in North America). That means we do enough business to be important to our Lenders, our Title Company, our Inspectors, our Craftsmen, and others we may call upon to assist you.
Our experience in Real Estate and in other pursuits gives us a broader perspective than most. To make sure that we are up-to-date, Doc serves on the Technology and Advertising Committees and we both attend just about every class offered by KW. Speaking of classes, KW is famous for the quality of its training, and Doc is a Market Center Instructor. We were chosen to be on the Market Center Associate Leadership Council. That means our colleagues respect our experience and judgment. We "get" the numbers. Doc's background is in Economics and Marketing. We have solid knowledge of Financing Options and how they can work to your greatest advantage, whether you are Buying or Selling. Ellen is an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS) and a Certified Home Marketing Specialist (CHMS). We offer the same high level of service to Buyers and Sellers of all economic strata, and we always guard your confidentiality and privacy closely.
We also love to work with First-Time Home Buyers. Many of our clients feel comfortable referring their children to us when they set out to buy a home. We love referrals! You can be assured that we will take very good care of anyone you choose to send to us.
We have a very wide network of well-qualified REALTORS® all around the country. If you or your friends have needs are for some other market, we are happy to refer you to a great agent.
If we can help you with any of your needs regarding Building, Buying, Selling or Renting, that will be great, but even if we can't, we think you deserve to know what ALL your options are. The job of your REALTOR® is to advise you about all the possibilities and help you make good choices. That requires a more thoughtful, listening and consultative approach.
So that's what we do. If you're thinking about Buyin' or Sellin', Tell Ellen! Visit our website at http://www.ElegantTexasHomes.com/ and please call us if we can be of service to you or your friends and family.
