What makes a Realtor a “top realtor” or “best real estate agent”?
Update: EXIT Heritage Realty was voted Best Real Estate Agency in Haymarket 2017 by Haymarket Lifestyle Magazine.
If you’re looking to buy a home or are considering selling your Haymarket area home, and you’re in the market for a Realtor, let me introduce myself. Okay, this may seem like shameless self promotion (and it is), but I sincerely believe that my experience, my service and my level of expertise qualify me as a top Realtor in the Haymarket and Gainesville area of Virginia.
My name is Bryan Garcia and I am the Principal Broker with EXIT Heritage Realty in downtown Haymarket, VA. I specialize in helping folks buy and sell real estate in Northern Virginia, more specifically the Haymarket area of Prince William County. That’s why they call me ‘Haymarket Real Estate Guy’.
Here are 10 good reasons to consider working with Bryan Garcia “Haymarket Real Estate Guy” …
1. Years of Experience
I have been selling real estate since March 2002 when I joined my mom, Cheryl Garcia, who has been licensed since 1980. We opened Heritage Real Estate of Haymarket in September 2003 and in August 2006 we joined EXIT Realty. We converted to EXIT Heritage Realty, one of the fastest growing real estate firms in the region. I manage a group of highly professional agents serving the Northern Virginia area.
2. Local Knowledge
Born in Virginia, I grew up in several different countries around the world but returned to Manassas/Haymarket where I graduated from Stonewall Jackson High School. With a BS from Clemson University and seven years of management experience in the restaurant industry in Georgia, I decided to get into real estate back here in Haymarket.
I have now lived in the town of Haymarket with my wife and two children for several years. I know this area inside and out. I work in the center of town, my kids go to the local schools and I am active in the community. You will see from my Community Blogs that I stay involved and am proud to share news about this community.
Also, you can miss our team of professional agents each year at Haymarket Day. This year we handed out thousands of free balloons and cold water bottles to area residents.
My dedication to perfection and commitment to excellence is why I have successfully closed over 100 million dollars in real estate. I have years of experience working with both buyers and sellers, residential and commercial, conventional and unconventional transactions and training real estate agents. I am very familiar with the entire transaction process and have encountered every possible glitch along the way. You will find that I am happy to share my knowledge on my blogs through Tips and Advice, or will gladly answer any questions you have without obligation.
4. Professional Support Team
I work with an Executive Team – an administrative assistant, a director of training, a marketing director and buyer’s specialists – who assist me with transaction details, marketing, social media, promoting listings and viewing properties. I also have a growing network of professional affiliates who I have worked with and am confident to recommend, including staging consultants, mortgage professionals, inspectors, appraisers, moving companies and more.
5. Full Time Career
Real estate is a full-time career for me, and then some. This business requires constant communication with clients and colleagues and work beyond the 9 to 5. I do manage to sneak away for a round of golf, a ski trip or to coach my son’s soccer games, but I am quick to return a call or an email.
6. State-of-the-Art Website
My real estate website, EXITGarcia.com prominently displays our Featured Properties as well as ALL current MLS listings in Northern Virginia. My website offers distinct ADDITIONAL features that are designed for serious house hunters. You can narrow your search to Subdivision and even High School. All the listings shown are ACCURATE, current and active immediately, unlike some streamlined websites like Zillow and Trulia.
7. Mobile Friendly and Social Savvy
To stay on top of the industry, a good Realtor has to keep up with technology. Buyers want information about properties INSTANTLY. Both my website and my blog, Haymarket Homeowner, are mobile friendly. All my listings have an interactive digital promotional page, a mobile landing page, and Smart Technology signs with instant access and text codes for detailed listing information.
I’m also very active on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. I provide LIVE Open Houses on Facebook and share my listings on targeted social media outlets because we all know that is where potential buyers are.
8. Free New Listing Alerts and Market Snapshots
If you are looking at homes for sale, or just watching the market for real estate trends, you can sign up for a free Market Snapshot. I’ll send you an email each time a new listing with your criteria comes on the market. You’ll also get updates on price changes and sold properties and reports on recent real estate trends in your neighborhood like sold prices and days on the market.
9. Haymarket Homeowner Featured Listings
Not only do I promote my listings through the traditional outlets, social media and email blasts, I also feature them on this site, which gets hundreds of hits daily from folks interested in the Haymarket area. AND, each listing gets featured in the print edition as well. The printed Haymarket Homeowner mails to 11,000 Haymarket and Gainesville households quarterly.
10. Honest and Trustworthy “Best Real Estate Agent in Haymarket”
I pride myself on my honest and friendly approach to relationships with clients and they give me great reviews. The best compliment I can receive is an introduction in which I am fortunate to receive often. See what some of my clients are saying. Working with a Realtor requires trust, but it also requires patience on both ends. Some transactions are quick while others can take months, even years, from start to finish. I understand this and am willing to work with a client until they are happy with the results.
