Gillette WY Real Estate Customer Service

February 20th, 2013

Gillette WY Real Estate Customer Service

Whether you are in a restaurant, a clothing store, or a a used car lot; the way you are treated as a customer has a large bearing on your positive or negative experience.  As customers, we have been served extremely well at times….and very poorly in other instances.  We understand and appreciate great customer service and take tremendous pride in providing the best customer service in our industry!

How Our Business Works

Many Realtors spend the majority of their time prospecting for clients.  They spend time cold calling, knocking on doors, or sitting in the office waiting for the phone to ring or someone to walk in and ask about a home they saw in the newspaper.

We are not big fans of harassing random people over the phone, and we are far too impatient to sit in the office and wait.  Instead, we have modeled our business around concentrating 100% on customer service.  Sounds great, right?  But how can we afford to not be out tracking down our next clients?  The way we are able to do this is through referrals.

Our family and friends, as well as past and present clients have been very good at providing us with a steady stream of referrals of their family and friends with real estate needs.  These referrals allow us to cut out the prospecting and concentrate on representing our clients the best way we can before, during, and after the purchase or sale of their home.

We ask that if you know anyone looking to by or sell a home who would enjoy the level of service we provide, that you pass along our information.  We take pride in representing friends and family members of our clients and treasure the trust placed in us to represent them well.

The strongest compliment you can give us is the referral of someone with real estate needs.  We are never too busy for your referrals!

Gillette WY Real Estate Agent

 Gillette WY Real Estate

There are a lot of real estate agents out there to choose from.  So what makes Lexi & Jordan Ostlund of RE/MAX Professionals stand out above the crowd?  Customer care, knowledge, experience, & commitment.

Customer care - Customer service is the most important part of our business.  Our mission is to provide every client a level of personal and professional service that gives them eager confidence to refer their friends, family members, and associates with real estate needs.  This level of service can only be provided with outstanding communication.  We communicate with our clients before, during, and after the transaction to ensure there are up to date and comfortable at every point.  When everyone involved is on the same page there is a much greater chance for a successful and smooth transaction.

Knowledge - We know the market in our area and we study market trends to supply our clients with up to date and useful information.  We produce a monthly report that breaks down the market into specific price points of what has happened in the past as well as where we feel the market is pointing in the future.  This helps buyers and sellers make informed decisions.  Lexi has earned the prestigious Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation and Jordan holds a Masters degree in business.  This gives us a well rounded base that helps us to see many angles when helping our clients buy and sell their homes.

Experience - We have been in this business long enough to see the ups and downs.  We have seen many situations and have been trained in dealing with many different types of negotiations.  We have experience in all price ranges and have represented clients from the first time home buyer, to the empty nester looking to down size, to seasoned investors.  We work hard to help sellers get their homes sold and to help buyers find a great home in their price point.  We are involved in the community and have built a positive reputation in the community among our peers.

Commitment - We are committed to Gillette and to best serving the needs of our customers.  There are many agents out there who are working part time at real estate.  They spend all of their time prospecting for their next client.  We are committed to serving our clients and achieving 100% satisfaction.  This will result in our clients recommending our services to their family and friends.  This gives us a constant flow of business and allows us to concentrate on our clients rather than having to prospect for new business.

New Construction Homes

Over the past 5 or 6 years there have been new construction homes popping up all over Gillette.  During the last boom from 2005-2008 there were so many builders flocking to town that it was nearly impossible to keep track of all of them.  While the new construction pace has slightly slowed and many of the fly by night builders have since left town, there continues to be lots of new homes being constructed every month. Gillette WY Real Estate

New construction is a great option for many people in Gillette.  There are some great products being offered in many different price ranges.  Many builders have homes that are currently under construction and you can still pick out many of the finishes (paint colors, cabinets, flooring, etc.).  Some builders will allow you to alter their floor plans or will work with you in designing a floor plan from scratch that will best fit your lifestyle.

We have a great deal of experience working with builders here and have formed good working relationships with many of the best.  We have also had some experiences with builders in our area that should be avoided at all costs.  We will never push a client toward a particular builder.  We pride ourselves on our process of helping our clients choose the best builder for them.

We begin by sharing our past experiences with our clients and suggesting some builders they may be interested in working with.  We go together and tour the builders homes that are either under construction or are finished and staged.  After you have seen the actual products we will decide what builders you want to talk to face to face to see who may be the best fit for you.  After you have selected a builder we will work to make sure everything is in order before you ever sign a contract.

Having representation you can trust is essential when building a home.  We enjoy giving people the comfort and peace of mind to know that they will be well taken care of throughout the entire construction process.  We will help you find a good lot in a neighborhood that fits your needs and lifestyle.  We can aid you in design choices from cabinets and paint to bedroom sizes and landscaping, all while remembering the ever important resale value.

Whether it is new construction or an existing home, buying a home is the largest investment of your life.  Allow us to assist you in any way we can to ensure that you are making the right choices for the present and the future! Contact us when you have questions, we are always glad to help!

Texting & Driving: It Can Wait

June 26th, 2012

Cheryl Riley, Director of External Affairs – AT&T Wyoming

As Wyoming prepares for the 4th of July travel weekend, we hope drivers will remember that a dangerous season is upon us.  According to AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, the days between Memorial Day and Labor Day have been dubbed the “100 Deadliest Days” for teens to be on the road. Many of these fatal accidents can be avoided by educating teens, their families and their communities about the dangers of texting and driving.

It can be hard for anyone, whether they are a teenager or an adult, to resist the urge to respond quickly to a text.  In fact, a recent poll found that 43 percent of teens openly admit to texting and driving.  The same survey found that nine out of ten teens expect recipients of their texts and emails to respond within five minutes.  The pressure is on.  This data clearly shows that the temptation to text while driving is greater than ever before.

Sending a text takes an average of five seconds.  But doing that while traveling 55 miles per hour is the equivalent of driving the length of a football field with a blindfold on.  It sounds unbelievable that anyone would unnecessarily close their eyes for a full five seconds while driving on the highway, but that’s effectively what you are doing if you send a text while driving.

AT&T is committed to educating the public – particularly teens – on the risks of texting behind the wheel.  AT&T’s ongoing efforts also include work with non-profit, safety-focused   organizations, like the National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS), to educate teens about the choices they’re making when they text and drive.  AT&T also created “The Last Text,” a powerful, 10-minute documentary that features real stories about lives that have been dramatically altered by texting and driving.

You can help spread the word by visiting www.att.com/itcanwait, watching the documentary, signing the “It Can Wait” pledge, and letting your friends, loved ones, colleagues, and community know that texting while driving is taking an unacceptable risk.  Texting while driving doesn’t just affect you; it can change the lives of the passengers in your car, your family, and strangers on the road.  Texting while driving puts everyone’s safety at risk.

AT&T also developed AT&T DriveMode, an app that auto-responds to any incoming texts with a message that says they’ll reply when it is safe.  It silences incoming text noises and sends calls to voicemail, minimizing the temptation to respond.  Our goal is to send a simple message to anyone who considers texting while driving: it can wait.

It’s an exciting time to be young—the world is changing faster than ever before and AT&T plays a big part in the innovations that are connecting us and revolutionizing our way of life.  But as technology progresses and mobile solutions become an even bigger part of our lives, we have to step back and remind ourselves that unless used responsibly, technology can have very real consequences.  While being connected is important, while you are driving, it can wait.
