NO SELLING - I GET IT!

You want to search for real estate information at your own pace & on your own terms.  I will be your co-pilot & help you as much, or as little, as you want.  I AM NOT your real estate salesman.  I CAN BE your real estate consultant.  You don't want to be sold - I GET IT!

Through this Priority Access Website you will have total current IDX (Internet Data Exchange) access to the 11 county Albany Capital Region MLS & Columbia Greene Northern Dutchess MLS.  You can access Multiple Listing Service information 24/7 from your desktop, laptop, *tablet or *smartphone.  You choose your favorite device or choose them all.  I'll provide all the live data feeds ABSOLUTELY FREE!

SELLERS Buyers search here - The Capital Region MLS (CRMLS) is not a public site.  Buyers can’t access the information without third party assistance.  I provide free MLS search access & actively market your property to potential buyers through CraigsList & 40+ Internet sites.  Email your address to me for a free, no obligation test drive - I will auto-email you Neighborhood Weekly Activity Reports so you can monitor exactly what is happening (new listings, status & price changes, etc.) in your neighborhood real estate market.  When you are ready, I'm here for you.

BUYERS – Seller listings are all here - 90+% of buyers start their home search on the Internet.  I make it free & easy, you don’t need to go anywhere else for tools & information.  On my website you can even set up your personal search alert so you are automatically notified the instant a new home that matches your criteria comes on the market.  When you are ready I'll be here to help.

FSBO'S - Buyers search hereFor Sale BOwners were more successful (14%) in the "sellers market" of 6-8 years ago.  We have been in a "buyers market" for quite a few years & the FSBO success rate is back to the historical 9% area & almost half of them (NAR 2014) knew the seller.  That reduces your real chance of selling a FSBO to a stranger to about 5% (for every one FSBO that is successful, 19 fail)!  Email your address to me for a free no obligation test drive - I will auto-email you Neighborhood Weekly Activity Reports so you can monitor exactly what is happening (new listings, status & price changes, etc.) in your neighborhood real estate market.  More importantly, if you agree to pay Better Homes & Gardens Tech Valley a 3.0% commission for a buyer I bring to the sale of your property, I will build a free website for your property & aggressively market it on CraigsList & ebay.  Working with me will significantly improve your 1 in 20 odds of FSBO success.

EXPIREDS – Buyers search hereHomes are selling, why not yours?  64% of Expireds re-list within 4 weeks, but only 23% re-list with the same agent (49 out of 100 list with a new agent)!  MLS rules prohibit an agent from contacting the owner of an active listing & that’s a good rule.  However, if your listing is about to expire & you are considering a change of representation, take a look at what I provide.  I can’t contact you, but the rules allow you to contact me.  If your listing has already expired, you're in the right place, let's set up an appointment.

THIS WEBSITE IS UNIQUE - It treats visitors with respect & understanding while exhibiting a professional approach to the purchase & sale of real estate. You will find all the information you need within a few keystrokes & a successful transaction can be yours in as little as a few weeks.  Enjoy the site & when you're ready, I look forward to meeting with you!
