Jules Yates and Jenifer Bradley - Our Client-First PhilosophyIf you are sincere about buying (or selling) a home, land or commercial property in or around the Traverse City area, my team and I would like to assist you. Jenifer Bradley and I bring more than 24+ years of full time experience to Exit Realty Paramount and first and foremost we do things different. we believe in educating my clients so they can make an informed decision that is right for them. So many people have no idea that they can own a home… right now! Even in this challenging market, bank financing a readily available to many buyers (including low and very low income) and with as little as $0 down.Interest rates are at record lows and many sellers are very willing to negotiate deals that we have not seen in years. Whether it is a bank owned property, a conventional home or new construction… now is the time to buy and we want to help you. I spent 17 years as an independent broker before joining Exit Realty and I enjoy helping my clients understand the market, locate financing, find a property, negotiate a great deal and sit with them right through to the closing.You may ask yourself why I sound so passionate about this business. Well it’s quite simple… I literally grew up in the business (as the son of a Real Estate Developer) and real estate is in my blood. I’ve called Traverse City my home since 1991 and have expertise in Marketing, Web Sites, Land Development, Condominiums, Water Front Properties, Foreclosures, Short Sales and New Construction.I am a former General Contractor, former Michigan Real Estate Appraiser (Valuation specialist) and have a degree in Marketing and Management. I am the former 2009-2010 Chairman of the Traverse Area Association of Realtors (TAAR) MLS Committee which oversees the operation and implementation of the Multiple Listing Service; I am a former member of the TAAR Board of Directors as well as a current member of the TAAR Professional Standards Committee.In addition I have earned several designations and certifications from the National Association of Realtors including ABR, SFR, Green and ePro. The Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. This coveted designation is awarded to real estate practitioners by the Real Estate BUYERS AGENT Council (REBAC) of the National Association of REALTORS® who meets the specified educational and practical experience criteria.NAR's Green Designation is the only NAR-recognized real estate designation designed for residential, commercial and property management professionals looking to learn about issues of energy efficiency and sustainability in the various facets of real estate.The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification, or SFR for short, gives me a framework for understanding how to:• Direct distressed sellers to finance, tax, and legal professionals • Qualify sellers for short sales • Develop a short-sale package • Negotiate with lenders • Tap into buyer demand • Safeguard your commission • Limit risk • Protect buyersLastly, I am an e-PRO is a REALTOR® who has successfully completed the e-PRO training program for real estate professionals. Endorsed by the National Association of REALTORS®, the e-PRO course teaches professionals the nuts and bolts of working with real estate on-line: Web sites, e-mail, on-line tools, and most of all, what today’s consumer really wants.There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.That said, in my experience as a Traverse City real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs. This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
