Responsiveness. In today’s fast moving real estate market, it is imperative that your agent be responsive. We pride ourselves on our responsiveness, and strive to respond to our clients quickly and proactively
Market Knowledge. Doug and The 680 Group are experts on the local market. Because we sell dozens of homes each year, we are uniquely positioned to understand and take advantage of current market conditions. We study the market continuously, and publish regular market updates on our 680 Blog
Mutual Goals. We take a team approach to serving our clients. We have the same goals… to find a perfect house that suits your needs at the best possible price, and to make the transaction as smooth and efficient as possible.
No Pressure. We will never pressure you. Ever. As your trusted advisors, we are with you every step of the way. We are patient, and don’t believe in pressuring you into making a poor decision. Because we sell dozens of homes each year, we are not motivated or desperate to sell you a home that is not right for you. We want what you want, and if a particular house is not right for you, we would never want you to buy it. No commission is worth having an unhappy client.
Process Management. Once we have successfully negotiated a purchase contract, our team works diligently to coordinating inspections and disclosures, interacting with the lender, and handling the dozens of tasks involved in closing the transaction. We are there to guide you and protect your interests through every step in the transaction, and beyond. Our excellent follow through and systematic communication means you will be informed every step of the way, from finding your home through closing. We have a large network of contractors and trades people to assist with all aspects of the sale. And our experience means that any unexpected issues or challenges can be dealt with quickly, and resolved in a satisfactory manner.
5 Star Service. Our core belief is that long term success comes from happy clients. We have built our success one client at a time, by delivering exceptional service and an uncommonly pleasant experience. Many Agents think their most important job is satisfying the customer. We don’t think that’s true. We believe that satisfying the customer is simply the minimum requirement for staying in business. We work constantly to improve our systems, processes, and services to go well beyond the standard level of service provided by most agents. Simply put, our objectives are to provide the best, most professional service in the industry. Period.
