Cassie Scramlin
Keller Williams Realty, Mitten Homes Group
About Cassie

I love having the opportunity to work for you! I currently service four counties in SW Michigan and have been licensed since 2001 with thousands of successful transactions completed. My no nonsense approach to real estate means you will receive superior service, integrity and honesty during the transaction. You can enjoy a smooth transaction netting you the most money, (if you are selling a home), and a good value on your new home, (if you are purchasing a home). I have the unique ability to match a home to a buyer. I am certified as a Professional Stager. You will benefit from my experience being a Dave Ramsey ELP. Being an ELP, I am different than most realtors asI look at things differently. Real estate is truly my passion and I enjoy helping everyone I can from listing and selling local properties to referring clients to my fabulous associates around the world. I will never put my commission at a higher value than your real estate goals. In my spare time, I love spending time with my grandchildren, family and friends. I enjoy camping, crafts and baking/cooking. My husband and I have two doodles that are important to our daily routine. I am a breast cancer survivor and support our military, firemen, police officers and first responders.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Portage?
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. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Portage?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Portage, MI.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Portage?
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 in Portage 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 in Portage 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.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Portage?
While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents work for 6% of the home price.
