Representing Our Clients

At Gillis Realty, our full-time, full-service residential specialists are your trusted advisors and have your best interests at heart because we focus on relationships rather than transactions. That's why we've been in the business for over 70 years. 

 

Expertise


Although online and mobile access to information on homes for sale, home value estimates, and research tools have become the norm, understanding the market and navigating the process of buying or selling a home is still complex. It's more important than ever to work with a real estate professional who has a level of expertise that goes beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do. 

At Gillis Realty, we take pride in offering areas of expertise that most clients don't even consider. For example, most buyers search for a home without taking into consideration the various market conditions that can affect the entire purchase process. Market seasonality, the backlog of buyers (also known as the competition), and an analysis of recent comparable sales all factor into an offer and acceptance strategy.

Negotiations


One of the top three things that clients want most from their Realtor® is help with negotiations. Many people think they're good at negotiating but oftentimes their experience is in haggling or bargaining, which is different than the art of negotiating. Keep in mind that typically, both buyers and sellers are emotionally invested. When it comes to something so deeply personal as a home, the importance of having a professional negotiation expert working for you is invaluable.

Gillis Realty Specialists understand that negotiation is both a skill-set as well as a mindset that helps a conversation transform into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. You definitely don't want to enlist the services of any real estate licensee whose only tactic is to split the difference and settle in the middle every time. So be sure to contact your Gillis Realty Specialist for your next transaction.

Transactional Excellence


At Gillis Realty, we aim for transactional excellence with every home sale. What this means for our clients is that our professionals coordinate every detail of the real estate transaction. From the moment an offer has been mutually accepted by the buyer and the seller, our residential real estate specialists monitor the various inspections, appraisals, title, escrow, and loan processes. They communicate and collaborate with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction to ensure a smooth closing.

These are the types of details that often separate those who simply have a real estate license and Gillis Realty Residential Specialists who are committed to the process of transactional excellence. We know you have plenty of personal matters to consider during a real estate transaction, and we want to make your journey to closing day as stress-free as possible.
