We are your advocate.
Whether you are buying your first home or your twentieth it is an emotional experience. Most people know which house is perfect for them when they walk in the door. It is a feeling that is almost indescribable- you just know this is the home. Most of us hope that our good judgment will be what controls which home we pick. Wouldn't it be nice to have a person on your side to look out for you?
We believe in helping people find that home. It is one of the largest purchases that you will make and it should be more than just a real estate transaction- it should be a happy and memorable experience. Homes are where memories are made. The first memories should be good ones. We believe that it is a privilege to participate in helping you find a home and we want to try to make the process go as smoothly as possible.
As real estate agents we are an advocate for you to find what you desire for the best possible price and terms, and we are determined to make that a reality.
What to expect.
First and foremost you deserve to be heard. The more information that you can provide, the easier it is to match you to the right home. Finding you the right home is more than just price range, bedroom, and baths. It is knowing about your family, friends, pets, favorite entertainment, how often you like to eat out, how much you like the outdoors, and the list goes on. This information helps to identify what neighborhoods and what type of home might suit you. Every family is unique and has different requirements and needs, and we believe in helping you find the best fit.
The first interview will cover the basics:
1. What you need, want, and can afford.
2. When you want to move.
3. What the market has to offer.
Moving, especially to a new area, can be an overwhelming proposition. You are dealing with financing, inspections, negotiations, packing, and much more. The small things like where the grocery store is located are often over looked! Helping you become acclimated to the Augusta area is part of the job. We can help you identify where to shop, obtain school information, find someone to help you move, arrange for transportation and accommodations if you are coming from out of town, and much more. Being a full service real estate agent means helping you in any reasonable way that we can. Vast knowledge of the area, past, present and on occasion future will help you to make an informed decision to buy the right place at the right price.
Leadering and innovating in the market...
with a World Class MLS home search...
As a buyer you will also benefit from the use of the best and most user-friendly MLS service offered in the Augusta, GA area. Elegant Augusta Real Estate provids a custom coded MLS search for clients. A number of realtors offer MLS search on their websites, but many 'hotlink' to the mainframe MLS system or it is given in a format that is not user friendly. This is and can be highly frustrating to clients. Here we provide you as much information as possible in an easy to digest format.
So a programmer and a web designer were hired, told them what was wanted and needed, and now we offer their work to you- a comprehensive Augusta area home search tool FREE of CHARGE.
This search covers 3 counties in South Carolina and 3 in Georgia, so you can search a vast number of homes. To prevent slow and lost connections, the MLS search and the entire Augusta MLS database is hosted on business servers through Rackspace.com. Two servers located geographically apart and mirrored for redundancy. No cost was spared in the design of the website and no cost is spared in maintaining it. When other sites go down, Elegant Augusta Real Estate won't.
You have the ability to search all homes available in the CSRA and print them out in an easy to read and use format. The format is easy, it does not require a specific type of Internet browser, and it does not shut down due to cookie blockers. You can also save your searches here the server so you can review them later.
...and the Original (and the Best) Real Estate Blog in the CSRA!
The one thing that this site offers over all other sites is a useful (and sometimes fun) real estate Blog. Over 80% of buyers start their home search on the internet. What better way to communicate to 80% of buyers than letting them learn about the Augusta area and real estate on their own time - through the Elegant Augusta Real Estate Blog.
This blog gets thousands of visitors per month! A number of articles on the Blog have been carried nationally and occasionally mentioned in the local newspaper. No other agent in the area offers clients this much information in one convenient spot.
Plenty of good information ~often delivered with a healthy sense of humor- makes you a better buyer!
Why on earth does anyone do this job?!?
Times are tough and being a Realtor during the one of the worst markets for real estate in nearly half a century sounds like a crazy proposition. Why do it?
For the love people and homes.
Drive, enthusiasm, and passion to help you find the right home will make your home search easy. Hopefully we've provided a quick start through the Blog and the MLS. Making clients happy is easy - cover the basics. Return phone calls, be available, and help your clients in any way possible. So many Realtors do it wrong.
