At Charitable Realty we do things a bit differently. At the close of each transaction we donate 10% of our commission to a charity that our client chooses, in their name. You can use any agent, so why not use one that gives back to the community?
When working with a new client I like to better understand their motivation for buying or selling so I can best match our Brokerage offerings to their needs. My goal is to find them the home of their dreams at a comfortable price point and move them through escrow with ease. If selling, I wish to bring them top dollar in a timely fashion while thoroughly upholding my fudiciary duties. I want to make sure I serve them to the best of my abilities to meet & exceed expectations.
I have a Ph.D. in Sociology from the Univeristy of North Texas, a Masters in Sociology from Cal State Fullerton, a BA in Sociology from Cal State Fullerton and am a Second Generation Broker and Owner of a Real Estate Firm.
It is vital to use a Buyers Agent as we are paid by Seller(s) and work for Buyer(s) at no cost to them. An agent is paid commission as determined through listing agreements set by a Seller and Broker. These commissions typically range from 1%-3% of sale price. We offer a menu of listing services that start as low as $500.00.
I worked as a college Professor for 18 years and had strong ties to non-profits throughout the DFW area. When I retired from teaching I wanted to maintain my non-profit network and combine it with Real Estate - the family business I grew up in. Hence, Charitable Realty was born. We donate 10% of earned commission to the Charity of the Client(s) choice in their honor. We have donated more than $250,000.00 to date.
I have worked with all types of clients and specialize in new home buyers, Veterans and relocation. I love working with anyone who wants to buy or sell, those in a challenging position and those looking for vacation property. I have sold more than $100M with an average sale price of $250K.
At our firm we have a Meals on Wheels Route each Wednesday in Northside, Fort Worth. We volunteer on a regular basis and try to give back as much as possible. Our office tithes to the community through funds and service and we are blessed in return.
Definitely hire a Realtor! We work in this industry for a living and are constantly updated with changes in legal and ethical parameters. We know how to negotiate, manage escrow and protect a client(s) interest.
(1) Understand the market dynamics, know whether it is a sellers or buyers market and be prepared to be patient when shopping for a home or dealing with appraisals as a seller.
(2) Understand the role of a Realtor and their boundaries. Look for an experienced Realtor who knows the market and is technologically saavy. You want to hire a Realtor who can access information quickly and write a deal even faster. Realtor(s) cannot interpret the law but can only fight for your rights and serve you to the best of their ability.
