Real Estate Value, Inc.
In today’s world, shopping for a home starts online. Just about any home for sale can be found online. When a home is listed on our MLS (Multiple Listing System) it automatically gets picked up (with no other effort by the broker) by hundreds of websites which births the massive online marketing monster. Marketing a home is just that simple with today’s technology (most brokers don't want you to know this). Other types of marketing that get little if any results include open houses, newspaper ads, magazine ads, radio ads & television ads. Brokers frequently disguise these as extra provided services & marketing tools for the client but in reality they are branding tools to market the real estate agent and their brokerage. They use their client's homes to brand themselves as the neighborhood guru. The odds of an agent selling the home you have listed with them during an open house is slim at best. It's more likely the agent will find a buyer to show other homes to. So why use a smaller real estate company instead of a big branded company? It’s simple. Big companies have big overhead that include offices, television commercials, print ads, fancy cars, freeway signs and utilities. It's ultimately paid for by their clients. Big overhead can create problems to increase commissions at all costs when times get lean. Our office is in our home. In comparison, our overhead is almost non-existent. We have the flexibility to tailor all aspects of the real estate business to our customer’s needs that includes a more personal service and yet we still provide the online marketing monster that sells homes. Hire us to list your property, we'll treat your home as if it were ours.
Give us the guidelines of the home you're looking for and we'll get right on it. Although we can help you buy anywhere in California our true buying expertise is the entire Coachella Valley and High Desert Area from 29 Palms through Palm Springs and all the way to the Salton Sea. We know these areas and all the developments like the back of our hands. We expect to find you a home quickly but if needed our agents will work tirelessly until you have seen every home there is in every neighborhood that interests you. We have to make sure that you are completely satisfied with your investment. We represented the buyer on the home in this picture, it was listed for $2,249,000 and our buyer paid only $1,800,000.

Kerry & Catherine
2000 - Catherine began as a sales manager selling new homes for Toll Brothers at "Mira Vista" in Rancho Mirage California; with her help it became the company's fastest selling development in the entire USA. 2003 - Opportunity arose for her to take a new position to lead the sales team at "Montego Dunes", a development in Indio, California that is commonly referred to as "the best un-gated community in Indio", she sold it out in a mere 15 months. 2005 - Real Estate Value was born to help with the concept and provide the sales team for "The Bridge at Jefferson" development in Indio, California; after selling the first 11 homes, Lennar Corp bought the rights to further develop the project and brought their own sales team. 2006 - We took over the sales department for a Yucca Valley, California development called "Desert Vista Village"; around a year later the recession hit and the development shut down. Real Estate Value adapted by going into re-sales, rentals, short sales, appraisals and the listing and selling of foreclosures for numerous banks and asset management companies. We've bought our own homes from HUD, the court house steps and you name it to fix and flip for profit; we've even been on the TV show "House Hunters". You'll be hard pressed to find any company that has the knowledge, contacts and hands-on experience we have all wrapped up in one company.
Unlike other companies that charge a fee for cancelling your listing, we do not and you can cancel for what ever reason that could come up. We will evaluate your neighborhood, the pluses and minuses that your home has to offer, the comps, your selling time frame and then pinpoint the price you can expect to get for it. If needed, we'll recommend the proper repairs and even help stage and clean your home to put you in the best position to get top dollar. We offer commission rates that the big guys can't touch. Our priority, thoughts and objective is what is best for you and the buyer. We'll earn what we earn from the transaction but it's not our top priority like it is for so many real estate companies. Check us out, we take pride to not be like the rest of them.
