The Big Picture
Ryan & Tracie work more than just the transaction. Ryan & Tracie stay 'trendy' in the most literal sense by watching bond markets, interest rates, changes in real estate law, foreclosure and inventory projections. They study lender programs, government activity and buyer/seller behavior through recent (and long-term when needed) history. Ryan & Tracie understand that all of this information is critical to their high end clients, whether it is to negotiate the best terms, to focus on a particular market or to time an offer. With knowledge come opportunities and solutions.
Technology in Action
Most real estate agents spend 80% of their time soliciting for business, which does not leave quality time to properly represent clients. Ryan & Tracie have chosen to utilize interactive technology to automate their marketing and client follow up. Because their systems are working for them 24 hours per day, they have time to dedicate their focus and energy on valued client needs, stay on top of changing trends and study the real estate inventory.
Technology allows their team to be efficient and effective. What does this mean? Ryan & Tracie are leaders in an industry that is historically slow to evolve. Their unique marketing techniques target tens of thousands of online clients, using specialized software to search and present opportunities quickly. Their website alone has MLS search and featured properties, Mobile Cell GPS search, Facebook, LinkedIn and blog links for buyers to find properties and stay informed on the market as well as for sellers to know that their property is receiving maximum exposure. Ryan & Tracie understand social networking, online advertising, analytics and the strengths that these portals bring to their business. Though Ryan & Tracie target broadly, they always qualify at the appropriate depth.
Who chooses to work with Ryan & Tracie? Ryan & Tracie work with clients who understand valued advice and market knowledge, not clients who are just looking for a sign in the front yard or a guided tour of San Diego County. Buying or selling a home involves more than just writing a contract. Ryan & Tracie work with clients who understand this and appreciate their advice on strategies, tax implications, income growth and solid financial planning. Ryan & Tracie's clients want exceptional Realtors who are available, systematic, thorough and who provide honest and realistic feedback, projections and expectations. Reality and honesty are always the best places to conduct business.
There are many licensed agents in San Diego County who all have access to the same MLS information. Finding a property is easy. Navigating, negotiating and structuring deals that prepare their clients for lifelong financial benefit are what Ryan & Tracie do every day. Buying and/or selling a home can be the biggest transaction a family will make. Ryan & Tracie want their clients to know and feel that they are making the best choices for their family.
An Enviable Track Record
Some agents in San Diego trumpet 25 years (or more) of experience. While Ryan & Tracie applaud this longevity, many 'experienced' real estate professionals do not change as the market changes. In the last six months alone, the market has presented the real estate industry with challenges of a magnitude never seen before. Ryan & Tracie's success in these changing times has given their clients an edge that they continue to benefit from, appreciate and enjoy.
