Ron Henderson
Keller Williams Realty
About Ron

Have you noticed how many real estate agents seem to brag about the number of homes they've sold or how many awards they've won? In addition, they all claim to be the #1 agent of their office. Let's be honest, do you really care about that? Sure, my real estate team sells over a hundred homes a year and we've won enough awards to fill a glass trophy case, but what we're really passionate about is helping each of our families get through one of the biggest financial investments of their lives, buying or selling their home. Many times when people contact me for the first time, they say, "I'm not sure what to do." Let me assure you this is perfectly normal because most people simply don't sell or buy enough homes in a lifetime to know what they need to do, much less be considered an expert. Sellers need help figuring out what needs to be repaired or updated and many times they don't know who to call for a handyman, painter, plumber, electrician, deck repair, etc. They are curious about what their home is worth. They don't know how it works with timing the sale of their current home and then finding the next home. With over 600 homes sold, I will be with you every step of the way. From getting home repairs done, to providing an experienced home stager and a professional photographer, and then advertising the home to the general public and to the real estate community. After that we move to contract signing, home inspections, appraisals, final underwriting, hiring movers. The list goes on and on, but my professional team will be there to answer all of your questions and to insure your success. Buyers need help understanding how to get pre-approved for a loan. They want to know the elements of the home buying process and what order those need to come in. They know they can search for homes online, but question whether there are other homes available that they're not seeing (the answer is YES). They want to know how the home inspections and appraisal works and they want a seamless, and dare I say, enjoyable home buying experience. At the close of a sale, I never get tired of hearing our clients say, "That was the smoothest real estate transaction we've ever had." I invite you to call me and see for yourself if we are the real estate team to help you and your family. We will never ask you to sign any contracts up front. We simply want the opportunity to sit down in a relaxed environment and answer your questions, then share some options that might be available for your specific situation. If, after that first consultation, you choose not to move forward, then you owe us nothing and we can part as friends. If you do choose to work with us, then we can discuss the next steps at that time. We've found this to be an extremely professional approach and one that our clients seem to appreciate. Call Ron Henderson to get started today!
