Listing Local is Logical

REO-success2.jpg
The Greater Rochester area is rich in resources — from local leadership, academic programs, cultural offerings and a solid small business community. How a realtor represents not only your home, but its diverse community, is the difference between a house that sits on the market and one that closes quickly. Expertise comes with experience, and that’s a quality that is earned and fostered over time, built on a foundation of living and working in that community for an extended period.

When your agent lives across town, they may not only lack the knowledge of the nuances necessary for success — the selling points only a seasoned and respected home town agent has culled — but they aren’t nearly as accessible for last-minute showings, mini-crisis situations and spur of the moment problem solving.

It’s become customary for realtors to advertise themselves as experts in a community, but when you put them to the test — do they know the school boundaries? Do they understand the property lines between Rochester and Rochester Hills? Can they advise you about the amenities that are important to your family — such as nearby senior centers or sports facilities, traffic routes and medical facilities that may be of particular interest?

The Linda Rea Team has been enmeshed in the Rochester community for more than four decades. We are the number one team for Real Estate One for good reason — we work, play and reside in this community and we live, eat and breathe all that is Rochester and Rochester Hills. We support the local schools, nonprofits and community events that make our town prosper. We roll our sleeves up and put in the time to get to know its needs and most importantly, we have heart. From first-time home buyers to empty nesters, no sale is too big or too small, we treat everyone like family.

Sure, we use the state-of-the-art marketing tools that other realtors do, such as virtual tours, analytics software and statistical information. But you can’t put a value on experience and customer service, and that’s exactly why clients have been referring us to their family and friends for generations.

We’ll take the time to get to know your home, your schedule, your needs, and work with you as a team with the number one goal of a successful move. If you need help with staging your home, we have the resources to area experts who can get your place open house ready in no time. If your landscape is lackluster, we will assist in finding someone to spruce up your yard and improve resale value. If you need an inspector to work in tandem with your buyer, we can refer you to a qualified professional to help close the sale.

We’re right in your neighborhood and we know what you need, when you need it. When it comes to listing or buying a home locally, it’s just logical to stay local.
