Erick Monzo
Keller Williams - The Monzo Group
About Erick

Marketing Each listing has a HUGE web presents on over 117 marketing sites. All listings are also inputed to multiply MLS databases Mirealsource.com and Realcomponline.com. All marketing pictures and videos are maintained by our staff as well as flyers and our email brochure system. Relationships We have years of service to the liquidation market and have built up a strong team of vendors to help our clients with alternative liquidation and loss mitigation strategies. We pride ourselves on our quick responses and our 4 hour listing upload turnaround. The Monzo Group started in 1999 purchasing homes throughout Macomb county. We would renovate the properties and turn them into "buy and hold" rental properties. Since those early days we have acquired large contracts with HUD and Banks with local homes and handle all marketing , maintenance and inspection services. These larger accounts allowed us to start investing heavily on marketing resources in Macomb Oakland and Wayne counties. Our steady stream of listings allows us to market all our listings with the highest level of exposure. We continue to be a full service real estate team ranked at the top 1% in the State of Michigan. We continually adapt to the ever changing real estate market and use the best marketing systems money can buy. Coming from an I.T back ground I have always had a leg up on my competition because of my knowledge of internet marketing and computers. I took these skills and brought them into the market when real estate was still done with a pencil and pen and have showed my team how to out produce the old guard at every turn. Your home will have maximum exposure at every turn because unlike most agents we invest thousands every month to grow our business and sell your homes.
