REALTOR

I have been in the real estate business for over 17 years. Before my career as a real estate agent, I worked as a general contractor in the Toledo and surrounding areas.  After becoming a Realtor, I quickly found myself answering questions for my clients about remodeling projects, the structural integrity of homes, and general maintenance issues.  My background in contracting has become very useful in guiding my clients to the best, and most secure homes for their investment. On the Sellers side, I bring the same ideals.  I focus on the benefits and features of your home.  It is imperative that each property is individually assessed and marketed unique to its condition, location, and value.   Before hiring your next agent read the following statement below. Then call me!! 

Does your real estate agent have an aggressive internet marketing campaign? We're not talking about how a realtor markets their business on the internet - we're talking about how your realtor promotes your property listing on the internet.

In my opinion, it's not enough to put the listing in the multiple listing service ("MLS") and wait until the listing is "syndicated" to other websites. Think of it in terms of "traditional" marketing of your property. It's not enough to put a realtor "for sale" sign in front of the property and wait until buyers show up.

Today's successful real estate internet marketing campaign includes additional online promotion of property listings. There's no one right way to do this - each agent has their own style, their own "tried and true" methods for online promotion that work in their area and in their marketplace. For some agents, and in some areas, putting the listing on an internet classified ad website such as Craigslist draws potential buyers. For other agents, and in other real estate market areas, adding the listing to a blog can draw an audience. Many agents will post the listing on social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, etc. to promote the listing to their network of connections. And other agents use videos to promote their listings. All strategies are good - and can be effective ways to expand the marketing of a property online. I recommend that agents have their listings displayed on their personal real estate websites as well as on their company's real estate website - at a minimum.

Home sellers can truly benefit from the online promotion of their property. If you are a home seller, ask your realtor to explain their internet marketing campaign.

Internet marketing is important for any property listing. The ability to reach a worldwide audience of potential buyers is amazing! Shouldn't your property have that advantage?

       

 

"I worked with Joe on some projects while I was working for Rick's Custom Tile a few years back. His reputation and skill were hard to match in the tile and flooring industry. He is very knowledgeable in the contracting industry, which in turn gives him a knowledge base in reality. I always found Joe to be honest and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Joe as working with him has always been a pleasure. "

My husband and I chose Joe Rigali and Danberry after meeting with other realtors in the area and coming to the conclusion that all realtors are not the same. Joe Rigali is a consummate professional and we recommend him without hesitation for any and all of your realtor needs. Choose Mr. Rigali if you want a knowledgeable attentive realtor that takes the uniqueness of his clients and their homes into consideration as he prepares the best marketing plan for your special needs. If you need a full time realtor who makes himself available to you day or night, do yourself a favor and choose Joe. Joe was well versed in everything we needed to sell our home at a price that satisfied both the buyers and us. Joe marketed our home in such a way that our home had the best exposure online with professional photos, staging and written descriptions that brought in interested buyers, Joe loves challenges and doesn’t shy away from tough situations and we provided him with a few of those. Just do it, call Joe.

After opening our home to ten realtors wanting the opportunity to list our Waterville home of forty-two years, we signed a contract with Joe Rigali who surpassed the others with his marketing expertise and use of social media. Joe is a dedicated professional and becomes an active partner with his clients. His honesty, professionalism and responsiveness gained our trust immediately. He patiently guided us through the sale of our ninety-nine year old unique home that was on the market for the first time in its history, and he had two offers within the first month. Joe was always willing to listen to our thoughts and ideas while sharing his advice gained through experience at the same time. He is a remarkable realtor and is not afraid of challenges. We are more than thankful for the outstanding performance of this Danberry employee, and we highly recommend him for all real estate needs. It is obvious that he loves his profession, and we consider him to be a 24/7 realtor!

"Joe was there every step of the way. As this was our first time buying, we really had no clue to what we were doing. If we had a question, Joe was very responsive whether it be via text or phone call. He isn't out there just for a sale, he genuinely cares and will give his honest opinion of each property shown and if there is an issue with it he will bring it up. I can't thank him enough for what he did for us in this process!"

"You can find a realtor. But not like this one!
If you’re in search. You need to read this.

I can not say enough good about Joe and his team. From the second we met I felt like I had a true partner in finding a home. As a single dad of 4 children my time is limited. Joe made the process absolutely enjoyable. His knowledge of homes, construction and tons of common sense made it THE best purchase process I’ve ever had.
I’ve owned many homes and known many realtors. Joe is absolutely hands down the best of the best. I count it an absolute blessing to have connected with him. Once he learned my style of home and needs, he didn’t miss one detail. He was bold and straight forward with his recommendations and didn’t just “show” me properties. He was vested and interested in every detail. Walking the homes with me and pointing out every detail as if he was buying it as well.

Here’s the mushy part. But the most important.

After a number of very rough years and a horrible divorce it was refreshing to feel that I had an ally in my process. Joe listened to my background and truly knew me. He knew what I needed. And not just in a home. He is an absolute professional and the exact person you need on your side. He went to bat for me and stayed vigilant in communication and response. I’m positive I was not the easiest client. And never once did he show me or make me feel that way.

You can find many realtors. But not like this man. He’s a one of a kind, and now a friend!

Joe, you know how emotional of a process this was for me. Words can not repay what you’ve done for me and my kiddos. The look in on your face when closing was done said it all. You were just as elated and joyful as I was.
My kids absolutely LOVE this home and have each told me many times in passing what a great place it is. You were a direct part of the change in trajectory for us.
Till the day I leave this earth and am called home, I will never forget this.
Thank you my friend!
Curtis Miller"
