Most of Nancy’s clients come through referrals from other satisfied clients.
How is she able to match the perfect property to her clients’ “wish list”? A careful listener and very intuitive, Nancy is able to read between the lines when choosing properties for clients. Nancy searches the MLS system and New Construction proposals, and also looks at prospectives posted by private sellers to maximize the variety of properties her clients might consider.
Developing a concise process in order to accomplish a successful purchase requires a number of steps by the buyer and an effective partnership with a knowledgeable realtor. With three decades of experience, Nancy has established solid connections through her vast network of service providers. With these connections, Nancy can provide her clients with the services to make the purchase of a home smooth and efficient, for first-time buyers and for repeat clients.
Nancy’s first task is to review appropriate properties on MLS that might suit her clients’ needs. The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a co-operative system under which properties are listed, sold, or purchased.
The Real Estate Board of Ottawa-Carleton (REBOC) records listings and sales of properties, then organizes this information and generates a database, which it distributes to real estate offices in our community. The end result of this sophisticated MLS system is produced using computer printouts, e-mail, and a website.
Here are some of the many advantages to searching for your home on the Multiple Listing Service:
- Your marketing access is greatly increased. By looking at a greater number of homes, you have a better chance of finding a suitable property.
- Your home purchase will be thoroughly documented. This will ensure fair treatment in case complications arise.
- Buyers and sellers alike can benefit from the larger marketing system. In other words, the more buyers and sellers that use the system, the more effective the system becomes.
With this tool, Nancy is able to set up searches that follow particular criteria provided by clients. Once clients have specified what sort of home they are looking for, the MLS will automatically tag any home on the market that matches your criteria and call the home to Nancy’s attention. She can then provide you with many of the home’s important details, including all of the criteria you specified. Nancy can also set up the search to email automatic summaries of listed homes that meet clients’ criteria.
Nancy’s services also include the review of New Construction for her clients. Nancy keeps abreast of the latest information on properties to be built, many of which have yet to be advertised. With this information, Nancy is able to match a new construction property to a client, based on its layout, style, functionality and location.
However, New Construction is not for everyone. Though there are many advantages to purchasing a newly built home, some closings may be as long as a year. Nancy can help you understand the best type of home for your needs, informing you of all costs and warranties for both resale and new construction, leaving you informed before making that important step in home purchasing.
With her three decades of experience, Nancy has developed many relationships with realtors, not only in the Ottawa-Carleton region, but across Canada and the United States. Her previous sales have made her a recognized name in the industry, as she provides Paramount Service to her clients. In becoming a familiar name in our community, Nancy has cultivated the trust and respect from fellow realtors, who often inform her of a private inventory of homes that may not be in the market. With this information, Nancy can tap into a market unattainable by most, offering the client the best possible selection.
Nancy also uses her network to tap into the market of homes “For Sale By Owner”. Though these homes will not appear on websites such as MLS, Nancy is able to provide all pertinent information to her clients, informing them of all possible properties for sale throughout the region.
