I like to say “it’s a lucky life to be born, raised and living in Ithaca NY” because it is! I love the hills of Upstate NY and this town I have always called home. My love for Ithaca and its environs developed during the 22 years I managed Leather Express on The Commons. The depth and breadth of the people coming to, thru and living in Ithaca is truly unique and amazing. It is this combination of people and place that makes our local business of real estate an exciting and dynamic profession. Words like business and profession sound like work, and buying or selling a home, property or business is work, hard work. That’s what I am here for; let me work hard for you. Not just the work of finding the right property or the right buyer for your property but working with the banks, attorneys, surveyors, inspectors and other Realtors to achieve maximum value for you in your transaction. That takes work. SELLERS Often I talk to sellers who see the process of getting their home ready to sell as just too daunting, too much needs to be done. It is hard work, but like I said, I like hard work. I will help you prepare your property so that it is staged to achieve the highest value the market will allow. And once it’s ready to sell, I will do the hard work of marketing your property so that the maximum number of qualified buyers will see it. In a hurry, that’s ok I can work as fast as I work hard. BUYERS Finding and buying a home is a different kind of hard work. Thankfully, I like that kind of hard work too. I will do the leg work so that your time looking in the market place is spent as efficiently as possible. I know the market and inventory, inside and out. I am continually inspecting and reviewing what is on the market and what is coming on the market. The more I know about you and your housing needs and desires the better I can work for you to fulfill them. This will save you a lot of time and effort as a buyer. Once the buying and selling has begun the hard work of negotiation begins. This is where you need a qualified Realtor to represent you in the negotiation of the sale or purchase of a property. Again this is the kind of hard work I love. Many dollars are given away in the negotiation of a real property transaction; let me make sure they are not your dollars. If you are serious about buying &/or selling any property please give me a call at 607.342.4065 or email me at Allison@WarrenHomes.com and I will start working hard for you. Bonus Points: I know all sorts of short cuts around town. As my client I will share with you sneaky ways to get from one place to the next that will make the area’s “interesting” traffic patterns seem like a breeze and you will have fun doing it!
