Meet Joe Vitale
Searching for your next home? As your realtor, I ensure the best access to all available listings in your desired area. Let me help you streamline the process of online searches by listening to you and your needs. I work in partnership with my clients to represent you in all real estate transactions, so you will never feel like you are out of touch. Want to see what's out there? Try this state-of-the-art map search – with it you can quickly search the entire market. Simply type the address, city, MLS ID, or just hit the search button to get started. The large format map allows you to click and drag, zoom in and view detailed information and photos for all properties currently listed on the MLS.
Selling your home? I work with my clients to develop a unique, customized plan to sell your home. You deserve the experience and professionalism that I bring to the table as your realtor. I work tirelessly to promote your home, and I will provide you with the seller reports to prove it! Want to get started? Take a look at our website. No other website in the market will showcase your listing with up to 50 high resolution photos! In addition to advertising your property on my own website, I syndicate your listing to other real estate websites and in social media across the web.
What it boils down to: Whether you are selling your home, searching for your next home, or have any questions about the process – I look forward to helping you!
Why Do You Need A Realtor? Joe Answers.
Q: Can't I just look up listings online?
A: Of course! And I encourage you to see what's out there, and discover your likes and dislikes. But the internet can be an overwhelming place. A realtor has access to the most comprehensive search engines, so you'll always have the most updated information. A realtor can also narrow the search for you, based on your interests. I take the time to get to know you, to listen to what you need, so you don't have to work at this alone.
Q: Wouldn't negotiating directly with the buyer/seller myself be a more transparent process?
A: Ideally, yes. However the relationship between a buyer and seller is not always an objective one. Allowing realtors to negotiate on your behalf maintains the buyer-seller relationship in a positive light. This avoids the possibility of a seller rejecting your offer based on a disagreement, and lets both parties have their best interests maintained during the real estate transaction.
Q: Isn't it cheaper to go without the real estate agent?
A: Again, this would be ideal, but unfortunately is rarely the case. Buying or selling a home by yourself is a huge undertaking, for which you are soley responsible - with no guarantee of a final sale. Ask yourself: are you prepared to value your home? Can you work with a seller's/buyer's agent? Are you able to market a home by yourself? Do you have access to all available properties for sale? How can you screen potential buyers? All of these elements should factor in to your decision. A realtor takes this legwork out of the equation - I am here to help you, to help you through the legal and emotional tasks involved in buying or selling your home!
The Bottom Line: Of course, the decision is up to you. However, you have nothing to lose by inquiring with a local realtor and seeing how a real estate agent can change, and likely improve your experience of buying or selling your home. I am ready for your call!
