INITIAL CONSULTATION

UNDERSTANDING YOUR GOALS: People sell their homes for a variety of reasons. Our job is to listen carefully so that we have a clear understanding of your goals and objectives.

DESCRIBING THE PROCESS: We listen attentively to discern what an Ultimate Transaction would look like to you. Then we develop a strategy, "A WINNING GAME PLAN", to assure that you experience the transaction you desired. This goes beyond just getting the desired price (which we will negotiate with your best interest in mind), but rather creates an sll-around pleasant and unstressful home selling/buying experience.

COMPETITIVE MARKET ANALYSIS: A thorough Competitive Market Analysis will be prepared considering the subject property and its surrounding area. This CMA will be presented and explained to you. We will help you understand your pricing options, depending on market conditions and your goals.

We will become your teammates, coaches, and your best resource as we navigate the buying/selling process together.

CONTRACTS: We will thoroughly explain all of the seller's disclosures required by the State of Oregon. We will go over the listing contract in detail with you so that your are fully aware of all aspects of the document. We will also review the earnest money contract and associated documents so that you will be knowledgeable prior to receiving or writing your first offer.

We are expecially masterful at negotiating contracts on your behalf. Our experience and creativity helps us to create win/win situations for all concerned.

TESTIMONIALS:

  • Leslie and Mike: purchased 2 homes, a business, and sold a home with us through the years. When asked what was most important to them they replied "an advocate who will act on our behalf, communicate clearly, and be a tough negotiator."  We have developed a strong relationship through the years and we thank them for the referrals they have trusted us with...
  • Jearmy and Tammy: sold their acreage and purchased an home. After doing an unbelievable remodel, sold the home and purchased their present home. They have a plan and are working toward building their real estate portfolio while in their early thirties. Way to go Jearmy and Tammy!! At our first meeting we asked "what do you expect in you Realtor"? Great communication, tough negotiation skills, honesty, and clarity. We are enjoying the growing relationship and watching their 3 great boys grow up.
  • Tom, Judy and daughter Kayrn: perchased a great ranch with the expectation of creating a beautiful retreat with the potential that they could share the music studio, and the beautiful setting with others. They have shared that they feel that our "strong advocacy, knowledge of the area and industry, and great communication skills" make us the perfect Realtors for them.

Our amazing life experiences have given us an appreciation of the complexities of life from many vantage points. We have "real life" experiences that include owning and operating several retail businesses, owning and operating a very large child care center, and farming a producing Valencia Orange Ranch.  We have operated a horse boarding facility on our ranch site and have been involved in our daughter's horse showing career that took us all over the country.  In addition to our business experiences, we both taught and coached at the high school level.  My (Gwen's) real estate career began in the early 80's, with Don joining me in 2001.  Don's superb negotiating skills, attention to detail, and knowledge of the industry and my creative side, love of people and helping each new client reach his/her real estate goals, and determination to create a great experience for our clients, put the T-E-A-M in Team De Groote!
