Get to know Rick Turner
RICK TURNER, Welcomes you to Toledo and Northwest Ohio!!
I have been a resident of Toledo since 1990 and am extremely bullish on our area! Consider this site as your Gateway to real estate in Toledo, Sylvania, Holland, Maumee, Monclova,as well as Perrysburg, Ohio. There is a wealth of information about homes, investment properties, REO's, Short Sales, tips on buying and selling homes, links to local schools,as well as day to day activities in our community. You can even search for every home listed by Realtors right here.
During the past nearly 23 years of selling real estate I have gained an abundance of knowledge concerning the local market by selling or participating in the sale of numerous homes. I often tell people this is not a business of just selling homes, but rather building lasting relationships... ones that continue long after the final "i" is dotted and "t" is crossed!
The business model Realtors operate in today is far different than in December of 1993 when I started out. At that time the Broker controlled all listing information and consumers almost always had to work with an agent to buy and sell homes.
Today, consumers are empowered as never before, but I'm a firm believer that Realtors are still vital in the real estate transaction. Our job has evolved from being a conduit of information to one of a counselor, helping consumers evaluate the avalanche data that many times overwhelms them!
That is the catalyst for this blog site. Simply to provide you, the consumer, information regarding real estate without a sales pitch included! So look around, and check back often, because this site is living and breathing and following the ebb and flow of the marketplace.
If you have comments or suggestions please feel free to send me an email, I'd be glad to hear from you!
