About Robert

Trustworthy Agents was formed to make a positive difference in the lives of our clients and in the real estate industry. Technology and the Internet have taken an ever-increasing role in buying and selling homes. With this shift is a tendency for home buyers & sellers to minimize in their mind, the value a client-focused real estate agent can bring. Not only that, but agents themselves seem to have lost focus of the full range of their fiduciary responsibilities, focusing instead on sales production and staying on top of the leaderboards. Your Trustworthy Agent brings two traditional principles back into real estate, service where the client comes first and carefully honed real estate analytical skills. Every relationship, buying or selling, begins with a consultation meeting. I know that informed clients make sound decisions. If you are buying a home, I will carefully and diligently learn and document "all" of your needs. While the home is probably at the forefront of your mind, your actual needs go well beyond how many beds, baths and price range you desire. Your needs should include drive time to work, your hobbies (what you want to live close to), schools, yard size, new construction, resale or renovated home preferences. . . If you are selling a home, you’ll want a clear documented list of what is selling (and not selling) in your community. Sellers also need to know that their total needs are understood, for example, when do you need to move, and how do you price your property accordingly. Finally, I will mentor and coach you on the process from shopping/listing to settlement. Most of my clients are able to articulate the process better than newly licensed real estate agents.

About Diane

Hello! My expertise in the greater Williamsburg area includes the entire peninsula and beyond. Living here since 1994 and in the business since 1997 gives me the confidence required to effectively market and sell your home or provide the local knowledge to find you and your family the perfect home to buy. Why should you trust me with selling your home? Well, if testimonials from former clients aren't enough to convince you, rest assured that I'll work tirelessly throughout the entire process making sure you get top dollar as quickly as possible. I'm well known for my flexibility, accessibility, and willingness to do whatever it takes to close a deal. As a stickler for detail and someone with a knack for interior design, I'll help to properly prepare your home (at no additional charge) by tastefully and professionally staging it as necessary (even if it's vacant) as I maintain a personal inventory of basic furniture and accessories for this purpose. I go above and beyond the highest standards when photographing your home producing beautiful brochures and slide-show tours that will knock your socks off! It's also important to understand that I list all of my homes in both major Hampton Roads MLS systems allowing for maximum exposure, and I advertise extensively in the Daily Press, the Virginia Gazette, and countless internet websites. And if you're buying a home? I'm familiar with virtually every neighborhood within 30 miles -- and beyond! After establishing your needs and desires I'll walk you through the arduous process of finding your dream home in a way that will feel fun and stress free! We WILL find that perfect home for you!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Hayes?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Hayes?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
