Providing Personal Attention and Professional Advice
About Rolf Kramer
I provide my clients with state of the art technology, sophisticated marketing techniques, up-to-the-minute information, and the expertise demanded by today's rapidly changing market. My services are backed by Liz Moore and Associates, devoted advocates for the consumer! Every home Liz Moore and Associates markets will have a professional and independent property inspection by an NAHI-certified home inspector, a market evaluation by a licensed appraiser, and a complete termite and moisture inspection by a bonded exterminator. Best of all, this is done at our expense. An innovation pioneered by Liz Moore and Associates, this process provides advantages for both buyer and seller. It allows our agents to accurately pinpoint true market value, ensures that you are advised of value and potential repair issues up front, before negotiating price and committing to terms, and avoids eleventh hour discoveries that can derail a sale. Liz Moore and Associates takes the surprise, and a lot of the stress, out of home buying and selling.
When I work for my clients they can always be assured that I will be truthful, do my very best for them and get the job done right. I learned this from building a 30 year professional consulting career. That career was based on a tradition of listening to clients and then delivering expert knowledge, advice, and determined hard work to help my clients fulfill their needs. That is what I do for my real estate clients.
As a Realtor, I have come to realize that I don't buy and sell real estate. What I really do is help people change their lives. When people move from one home to another, it changes where their kids go to school, where their family worships, and their sphere of friends. It dramatically changes their lives. I have a big part in making that happen and I take that very seriously. Making this family life change a successful change is what puts a smile on my face and in my heart. I really get a kick out of having my clients come back to me and thank me for the helping them get what they wanted, where they wanted to go, when they wanted to go, and without undue stress.
I am in the business to make money because my most important job every day is to create security, stability, and a future for my family. I build that business by working with people like you and taking excellent care of them and their real estate needs. As a Buyer's Agent: I employ detailed interviews to identify a client's needs and review every available property through extensive resources, including several Multiple Listing Services, online newspaper classifieds, and For Sale by Owner web sites. Clients are immediately notified via email about any new properties that fit their needs. Clients are provided with their own internet portal where they can sort their properties into favorites, possibilities, and rejects.
As a real estate professional and long time resident of Williamsburg, I offer my clients an insider's perspective on the local real estate market. As a Seller's Agent: I use a variety of advanced marketing tools. Clients are provided enhanced Internet listings on numerous websites including www.zillow.com, www.trulia.com, www.realtor.com, www.retiringinwilliamsburg.com, www.yahoo.com, which present their property to millions of online buyers actively looking to purchase. Buyers can directly access the property's details and numerous proffessionally taken photographs. Properties are listed in two local Multiple Listing Services (MLS) and lock boxes are provided for easy access by more Realtors. I use traditional marketing techniques that still help sell a house in today's market: For sale sign and a box with flyers on the lawn for drive-bys; open house for the public; broker open house; advertising in newspapers and magazines, and 'Just Listed' postcards to neighbors. I maximize the market exposure of my client's property to include all sources of first contact for home buyers.
