ePRO®, CIAS©, CDPE©, SFR, REO Certified, Broker & CEO
Heritage Realty Group, Inc.
"A Heritage of Excellence!"®
Through my over 30 years of experience handling both conventional and distressed real estate I've found that homeowners today have more questions than answers about their circumstances. As an agent with the CIAS®, ePro, SFR & CDPE® Designations, I have a strong and unique appreciation of the factors affecting the market, and know the latest marketing strategies available to you. Coming from a background of over 25 years in construction and over 30 years excellence of service in residential and commercial investment real estate I and my team offer you exceptional expertise and insight in the marketing of your home. Because the real estate industry is becoming more sophisticated and challenging every day, you need a team of professionals that understand the industry and are positioned to stay ahead of the game; Drake Fenn and Heritage Realty Group, Inc. are that team! Let's set an appointment today to discuss the details.
I go the extra mile to help achieve your goals. That's why I constantly research the market and property values so your home is priced effectively from day one. From innovative marketing techniques to effectively attract potential buyers through successful close of escrow, and every step of the way in between, my goal is to provide clients with the best service possible. Throughout my career, I have learned that "real" estate is not about houses and property; it's about "real" people.
