Many new couples not only begin wedding plans after getting engaged, but are also looking to buy a new home together. The right realtor can make a big difference! This week we sat down with the owner of Real Estate & Resorts Group, Marisol Valdez, and talked about home buying, planning advice and her favorite client story.
What inspired you to start this company?
I was only a little girl when my mom started taking me with her to show client’s houses. It was only she and I growing up, so she took me with her to her real estate office all the time. I feel in love with looking at properties and helping people. At the age of 18 I left for the army to serve my country, The second I got home I ran to get my real estate license and we have been helping people ever since. Now that my daughters are here we are a three generation team that will fight to get you the best possible deal. There is nothing that compares to being a home owner and that’s our mission! To help YOU buy a home of your very own!
What sets your company apart from similar ones in the same field?
Our family journey started in a garage that was converted into a one bedroom apartment. It was there that our hard work and dedication was ignited. We then rented a house, more hard work and dedication later we were able to buy our first home! It was the most amazing feeling of accomplishment! From there we knew that anything is possible as long as you set your mind to it. Hard work and dedication is what we bring to the table and that experience sets us apart. We know that no matter what part of the home buying journey you are on, we can guide you to being a homeowner!
What is your best planning advice or tip for couples?
The time is NOW! Don’t wait to get started on your journey to home ownership. Exercising your credit muscle is a constant that starts the day we sit down for the first time. You’ve GOT this! You CAN do this! With a well designed plan, YOU can be a HOMEOWNER!
What is one favorite client story and why?
With my mom’s years of experience she has learned to read clients very well and understand what they are truly looking for. She provided a list of 4 homes to show a newlywed couple that were perfect for them. The couple saw three and immediately rejected the other due to the fact that it was on a corner lot. We continued to show the client many houses. When their parents joined us one day they suggested taking a look at the initial home that they had rejected. They immediately fell in love, we put the contract in the same day! The rest is history! They thanked us for finding their Home Sweet Home!
