Now is the Time to Sell

Are you considering selling your home? Why wait until the weather is warm? Now is a great time to list for peak value as:

  1. Inventory is at its lowest since the recession, giving your home more visibility and fewer properties for it to compete with.
  2. “Spring Selling Season” has already started – Days on Market historically begins declining in January.
  3. Starting the listing process now ensures your home is listed, and ready to show once the weather actually does warm up!

The selling process can be a bit daunting, but we’re with you every step of the way. We’ll help you:

  • Determine your home’s value
  • Prepare your home for sale
  • Market your home
  • Show your home
  • Receive purchase offers and negotiate
  • Open escrow and order a title
  • Coordinate appraisals and inspections
  • Navigate disclosures, requests for repair and any contingencies
  • Close escrow

See what our clients are saying…

I wish I had used Matt for all seven of the real estate transactions I completed in Grinnell over the past 10 years. He found us a buyer within a week, negotiated fair and equitable terms for both parties, and closed the deal; no problems, no delays. This was the most efficient and professional sale I have experienced in Grinnell. Hire Matt.~ Jennison


Guadalupe helped us sell my mothers home in Marshalltown and was AMAZING!! We live in RI so we could not be there for the whole process of readying the home for sale but she went above and beyond to help us get t done! We needed someone to help mow the lawn and clean the house before the showing and she helped us find great people who were affordable and extremely helpful as well. She also knew just how to deal with a difficult buyer at the end of the sale. Highly recommend!!! ~Chester


I am so thankful for Alyssa. After I lost my husband Brian, in 2016, the house we built our family in became more than I wanted to keep up with. I contacted Alyssa and she went right to work. This was an emotional decision I was making and Alyssa knew that. She took special care to make sure she took care of all the details in selling a home. I could contact her anytime I needed to and ask about the smallest details. After we put the house on the market, I needed to get busy and decide where I wanted to live. I fell in love with the one and only place we looked at! Alyssa took care of all the details and before I knew it I was in the process of moving into my new home. Alyssa encouraged me to keep my house on the market in the winter and it paid off. Sold it in Feb! Alyssa also helped to facilitate the purchase of some property at Holiday Lake which my family and friends enjoy as much as I do. I highly recommend Alyssa to anyone who is looking for a new home, or deciding to put their home on the market! I’m happy to call her my friend now. Best wishes to you Alyssa, I can’t thank you enough. ~ Porath


When I first met Cheri, she instantly was willing to help and put me in touch with all of the resources that I needed for my purchase. Cheri showed us properties across 2 counties and stuck with us until she found us the house we bought. Our transaction was complicated, but she kept all the wheels on the bus and made it happen and made it comfortable. We did most of the transaction via telephone, fax, email, and text. She even showed us a house at 9pm in a snowstorm! She did everything she could in her power to make our purchase happen. She worked with all of the players involved in our transaction with ease. Even the attorneys in our transaction were impressed with her hard work. She’s unbelievable! Cheri Garcia is a gold star first class real estate agent and an amazing person! ~ Arvey

Reflecting on 2018 Provides Inspiration for a New Year

As we embark on a new calendar year, we are inspired on the reflection of all that we accomplished together at RE/MAX Partners Realty in 2018. Reviewing the below shows the great dedication of our customers and hard work from our agents and staff.

We started the year at the annual RE/MAX R4 International Convention in Las Vegas – the largest real estate convention in the world – where our staff had the opportunity to continue their education across various topics facing the industry. We plan to attend the four-day event again this year for more educational sessions and growth opportunities.

At RE/MAX Partners Realty, our agents have multiple accreditations. Alyssa Beaderstadt is an Accredited Commercial Professional(ACP) and Strategic Planning Specialist, Cheri Garcia is a Sales Representative Specialist (SRS), and Matt Karjalahti is an Accredited Commercial Professional (ACP) and Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE). In addition, Alyssa and Matt are the only ACPs in Central Iowa between Des Moines and Iowa City. In 2019, we plan to grow our agent repertoire and accreditations even more – stay tuned for more to come!

We made an exciting new advancement and purchased an old building in severe disrepair in Marshalltown. We began renovations in April and were just a couple of weeks away from being able to open the doors to the public in July. As the community experienced the devastating effects of an EF-3 tornado in July, our new office was completely destroyed. Fortunately, we were able to identify a new space located at 13 East Southridge (Suite D), Marshalltown, IA and recently opened doors. Give us a call at 641-519-0200 or stop in to see us!

For the first time in 44 years, the RE/MAX brand has been updated to be brighter, more modern and more appealing to today’s real estate buyers and sellers. Updating our office and listing signs, billboards, marketing materials and the vast amount of places we are marketed online has been quite the endeavor of time and money. Our team’s commitment to stay on top of this – all while maintaining our clients’ needs – has been nothing short of amazing.

Within the walls of our offices and behind the scenes of our representation, we strive to identify and utilize technology that helps us stay efficient for our clients. In 2018, we purchased 3D Camera equipment to use for both residential and commercial listings for buyers to interact within our marketing for all of our listings. We also transitioned to a new interactive phone system and completed a full office upgrade for professional in-house printing.

 

We hired a digital development expert and graphic designer, Jess Dawson. Jess helped us evolve the new branding by developing a new state-of-the-art website featuring Central Iowa’s most complete database of listings. The site is also multi-lingual, offering the largest local search resource for non-English buyers. We continue to add more resources to the site for our clients to utilize and stay up-to-date, offering streamlined user experiences on both desktop and mobile platforms. In 2019, Jess plans to obtain her real estate license to even further service our clients.

We continued our partnership with Double You Marketing, Inc., evolving our efforts that started more than two years ago with branding RE/MAX Partners Realty, better understanding our target audiences and planning communications strategically. Their recent support has allowed us to expand our marketing presence to better communicate with current and prospective customers with assistance on website content production, social media, email newsletters and various ad placements. To sign up for our newsletter, click here  and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

We are fortunate to be in a position to support our communities throughout the year. Our community involvement in 2018 spanned from Independence Day parades to high school football team sponsorships. We also contributed to a variety of charities and organizations as an investment back to our communities that do so much for us.

As we close one year and move into a new trip around the sun, we first and foremost thank our clients. Our growth and development is based on the services you asked from us. We are here for you and because of you. 2018’s success in helping you has brought many successes, big and small, including:

  • #1 Selling Office in Poweshiek County
  • #1 Selling Agent in Poweshiek County
  • #2 Selling Office & Agent in Brooklyn and Holiday Lake
*According to MIRBOR MLS ranking reports 1/1/18-12/31/18 for all properties sold in Poweshiek county, and all properties sold in 52211.

Thank you for believing in us while we believe in you. We will continue to grow and innovate day in and day out to bring you an unmatched product in real estate.
