Kathleen Scirpoli - REALTOR ®
As a real estate professional, I understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction; it’s an exciting new chapter in your family’s life. The reason I became an agent is because my experience as a first-time home buyer was less than stellar. When my husband and I started our search, we had a great initial phone call with our realtor and he really sold us on his process. We told him our home criteria and we set up an appointment to go look at our potential new home. Each time we went on an appointment to look at homes we met with a different assistant. Three appointments and three different assistants later, we were no closer to finding our dream home. The most frustrating part was no one communicated what we were looking for in a home, which resulted in us having to reexplain our criteria each home tour. On top of that the homes we were receiving were way outside of our criteria, therefore having to do our own home search. When WE finally found a home that we were interested in putting an offer on, we asked for a CMA and received generic comps that in no way reflected the true value of the home.
I had thought that if the team was this laxed from the beginning, I couldn’t imagine what else they might miss that would in the end cost us a lot of money. Luckily, I had previously worked as an ISA for a real estate firm and my husband was a former mortgage broker. Given our experience we were able to navigate the potential pitfalls of our transaction. It dawned on me that if someone hadn’t been in the industry and exposed to the process consistently, there would be a huge amount of risk for them in that situation. It was at that moment I realized what I wanted to do and how I wanted to serve my community.
I saw an opportunity to bring dedication, provide an exceptional level of personalized service, and help really educate my clients on their real estate investment. I wanted to serve my clients by listening to them and participating in that excitement of finding or selling their home. I take great pride in the relationships I build through the process and it’s my promise to always work relentlessly on my client’s behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals.
