Nate Gerard has over 20 years of relevant sales and marketing experience working for hundreds of clients. Our top priority is your success and happiness!
When creating our team, we set out to offer clients a new level of professionalism, providing the most informative, dedicated service in the industry. Nate and Jill Gerard both come to real estate from successful track records in the fields of executive level sales and strategic marketing for clients ranging from small boutique brands to Fortune 100 companies.
Because of our backgrounds, we see things through the lens of a business person. We keep abreast of key trends and continually analyze the marketplace. We know how to leverage the most current advances in technology and provide a balanced mix of data to inform our client’s decision making process.
But you will also have a team that understands how important your real estate transaction is to you. Because just as important as the business side, so is the human side of our relationships with clients. We bring a unique balance of providing savvy, full-service real estate services without ever losing sight of the importance of personal attention to each of our clients.
There are three key areas of the industry we serve.
1. Traditional buyers and sellers: We help traditional buyers and sellers get the best price with the least difficulty Buying and selling requires more analysis now than ever. Where are home values trending in the area? What is the best pricing strategy? What is the affect of short sales and bank owned sales on the home you want to sell or buy? We help clients determine the best answers to these and all the questions that arise.
2. Investors who buy, fix, and flip homes as well as rental investors: We help investors find and analyze the most profitable real estate opportunities Whether you’re looking for a rental or a rehab opportunity there are many factors to consider. What are comparable bank owned properties selling for in an area? What are the tactics to get your offer accepted without overbidding? What are modifications you can make to increase the rentability or sellability of the home after your improvements? We have an excellent network of other agents who work with buyers as well as people interested in Contract for Deed, Rent to own, and simple rental agreements.
3. Homeowners whose homes were recently listed, and were not successful in selling: We help home owners find success selling their previously listed homes When a listing goes “Expired”, it is often a very frustrating and disappointing situation for homeowners. We listen to their story and offer new ways to help accomplish their goals. We have many documented case studies where we have helped homeowners achieve success. Aside from working with referrals, getting expired listing sold is our sole focus. In today’s market, the right agent with the right marketing tools and the right attitude makes all the difference. We would be happy to offer you a no-obligation evaluation of your situation!
Our philosophy is simple: clients come first. We pledge to be in constant communication with our clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. We believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, we haven’t done our job. We don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of our clients.
I’m not sure who said that but after 47 years on this earth I’ve found it an inescapable truth. Here are some of my values and reasons why they’re important to me. All of my business partnerships are based on dealing with people who share these values. Life’s too short to do it any other way!
Communication – I’ve committed a lot of energy learning good communication skills. My degree is in Speech Communication and verbal communication actually helps me organize my thoughts. Good communication avoids many problems and helps everyone know what to expect.
Honesty – This should be a value for everyone in my industry since its part of the fiduciary duty Realtors have to their clients. Honesty and loyalty are the foundation for every relationship.
Loyalty – Represents placing your client’s needs above even your own. Unconditional loyalty is hard to find these days. When you become apart of the Gerard Team and that teamwork benefits us all.
Excellence – My drive to succeed for my clients is the most important aspect of my professional life – and, it’s the measure of success for me as well. When I’m excellent being your Realtor great things happen for you.
Challenge – Lots of people don’t like a challenge; to me it helps define success and keeps me from becoming complacent. Challenges also help ignite creative problem solving.
Optimism – It’s important to have a grasp on reality but being optimistic makes a difference in tough situations. Sometimes that’s what it takes to see the opportunity in the challenge.
Compassion – I care a great deal about the clients and vendors I work with. Helping them accomplish their goals is my primary mission.
Integrity – This represents a commitment to this set of values you’ve just read; my code or brand as a Realtor. You’ll see it and feel it with every interaction you have with the Gerard Team.
