Thank you for visiting ABOUT RED and MIKE. By now you have probably looked at a lot of houses online and are ready to take the next important step: choosing the best real estate agent. I remember when my family and I relocated here from Minnesota 12 years ago – we were looking for an agent who was knowledgeable, hardworking, patient, and friendly. And now we believe that we are exactly that type of agent for you and your family.

RED: I am a Certified Relocation Expert and have won awards for my customer satisfaction, but more importantly I remember what it was like to move across country after selling a home (and farm) in Minnesota with one teenager, a husband, two dogs, a cat, one car, one pick-up and a giant U-Haul. It took us three days and when we arrived, literally the only person we knew here was the real estate agent we had met online!

MIKE: My wife and I have been buying, renting and selling our own investment properties for 30 years. She has been a licensed realtor in North Carolina for over 10 years, and we specialize in Wake and Johnston counties – especially Raleigh, Clayton, Knightdale, Wendell, Garner, and surrounding Raleigh areas.
RED: I am an Accredited Buyers Agent, which means I have gained additional training to assist buyers. My favorite clients are first time buyers – I used to be a teacher and working with this group allows me to teach again. There’s a lot to learn about the process, and I want to ensure that my buyers understand everything from their consumer rights to searching for the right property to inspections to loans to the closing table and more.

Interestingly, in NC exclusive buyers agents (and most dual agents) are paid by the company that lists the property for the seller . For example, my company can assist you in the purchase of every property in NC, putting your best interests first, and our pay comes from the sellers’ company on closing day. That’s right! Buyers do not pay. So if you are a buyer and want someone exclusively in your corner (of course you do!) do not call the agent who is selling the property – she cannot, by law, put your interests over the interests of her sellers and vice versa.
You may already know all of this, but a lot of our customers are new to the market, or the customs may be different in your state.

RED: I am also an Accredited Staging Professional which means I have additional training to assist sellers in making their properties stand out from the competition. Working as a team with sellers, and using little more than a gallon of paint and some creativity, I’ve often been able to breathe new life into a tired and cluttered room. Because my listings are staged and priced competitively, they typically sell in less days than average for the market. I would be happy to share my listing presentation with you by appointment.

I hope you find some of this helpful. Please call, text or email us at your convenience. We would love the opportunity to earn your business .
