About Ricardo Gutierrez
THINKING OF BUYING A HOME?
Our pledge to you as a first-time buyer is to be with you every single step of the way! If you are entering the housing market for the first time, allow us to help navigate you through the myriad paperwork that is required in today’s real estate transactions. The escrow process is typically a 30-45 day procedure from opening to closing, during which there are a lot of moving parts that can seem daunting, from the initial submission of a proper offer to ordering and supervising of various home inspections so that they are completed in a timely manner. My sales and marketing team at Terra Firma Global Partners and I have a proven method of providing effective tools to guide you step-by-step during the entire home buying process and beyond. One of my duties as your agent is to continually educate myself on the ever-changing rules and regulations that are mandated by federal, state and local laws, and to constantly share that knowledge with you. By staying current on the legal aspects of purchasing all types of residential property, you have the peace of mind knowing that my team and I work for you and your family’s best interest to first locate, then secure your first home, with your 100% satisfaction in mind.
THINKING OF BUYING A SECOND HOME OR AN INVESTMENT PROPERTY?
Our pledge to you as an experienced or investment buyer is the same as our pledge to first-time buyers, although chances are you are already familiar with industry terms and timelines, having purchased in the past. New listings are toured a minimum of two times per week, and oftentimes we are privy to properties that are available even BEFORE they go on the market. Many times, by the time a buyer sees a “For Sale” sign on a particular home, chances are it’s already in escrow and close to closing, so it significantly diminishes the possibility of you buying that particular home. It can be frustrating, which is why working with us allows you the benefit of being able to view a property even before it hits the market! We are excellent at listening to your requirements, and have a full understanding that you should not have to settle for something less than what you want or deserve. For most of us, buying and selling properties will be the most financially challenging, but ultimately most rewarding endeavors we will ever take on in our lives. In terms of investment properties, we stay current and up-to-date on local, state, and federal real estate laws and regulations, so you are always kept abreast, which is beneficial to you, especially if you are new to the area.
THINKING OF SELLING YOUR HOME?
Our pledge to you as a seller, first and foremost regardless of experience is to sell your home! There is an art to selling a particular property, and that involves a thorough understanding of the local market and how it’s trending through past comparative sales as well as current listings. However, just possessing that understanding isn’t enough these days in this competitive market. Initially, our experience in the world of technology will expose your property to as many eyes as possible. When you hire me as your listing agent, you not only get local exposure through a sizable network of agents who will preview your property via the MLS, but your home will also receive maximum exposure through other online methods as well. Your property will be prominently advertised on my personal website at WWW.RICARDO-GUTIERREZ.COM, through social media outlets such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as the extensive network that Terra Firma Global Partners has to offer. Professionally taken photographs highlighting your home are used on all marketing materials, for both hard copy as well as online. Another vital step to selling your home is to conduct consistently successful open houses utilizing all the online social media and marketing tools at your disposal. Our expertise in the field of interior design will ensure that your entire property is staged and set up properly for the most effective and eye-popping interiors and exteriors utilized to sell your home. By providing potential buyers with a home that is showroom-ready, they will more effectively see themselves someday living there, creating memories of their very own!
