Success is all about choices. Explore your options.
Your option when buying or selling real estate is to choose the "right' agent to represent you. And...choosing the "right" agent is not always easy because everyone knows more than one real estate agent so educate yourself on what each agent has to offer.
"When you are selling a property, there are 3 key factors to consider," says Doug Reece, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX® on island. #1 is Market Exposure, #2 is Condition and #3 is Proper Pricing. ""Marketing is what I do" continues Reece, "I make sure everyone locally (and globally) has access to the information about all properties have fore sale." The internet is by far my strongest tool in marketing Martha's Vineyard Island Luxury Homes since most of the buyers are not local. Use of HD videos and aerial photography are just 2 examples of distinct marketing advantage I use to effectively (and successfully) reach potential buyers." "Property condition and proper pricing are the 2 factors I work on closely with each seller, since each situation is specific and deserves my personal attention."
When you are purchasing a property the #1 key factor to consider is education. Understanding all aspects (property value, financing, legal, etc.) of the real estate market is extremely important and should be first and foremost. In order to help you, as a buyer, understand the market, Doug keeps himself educated and up-to-date on the every-changing real estate market through annual continuing education classes and by obtaining professional designations. Recently completing required course work, Doug was designated as a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist® the the Institute of Luxury Home Marketing® and was awarded membership in the Million Dollar Guild.
Doug has over 30 years of experience in the real estate business and was recently recognized as one of the top 20 RE/MAX® agents in New England! His energetic and non-stop work ethic is one reason he is a member of the RE/MAX® Hall of Fame and recently received the RE/MAX® Lifetime Achievement Award.
Family is also an important part of life for Doug. He and wife, Amy, will be celebrating their 34th wedding anniversary in 2014, have 3 beautiful children and spend many evenings on the beach hosting sunset picnics for the many friends and family that visit the island. So, stop by Eastville Beach in Oak Bluffs on any summer evening and you may find Doug, at the grill, inviting you to join the fun.
