About the P.R.E.S. Team
We are the P.R.E.S. Team of Preferred Real Estate Services. We work with all types of clients – first time home buyers, experienced purchasers, veterans, high profile/high end buyers, seniors, millennials, investors, you name it!!
As real estate professionals, we believe that selling real estate is more about relationships than transactions. Of course, the transaction is the ultimate goal, but the relationship is the vehicle to get us there efficiently.
We’ve earned the reputation of going the extra mile for our clients. We believe in being available and maintaining good communication and creating a bond of trust. We simplify the process by having a good attitude along with hard work and being honest.
We have a team of professionals that help to make the process go as smoothly as possible. We have lenders that have programs that range anywhere from first time home buyers which can virtually become a 100% financing situation to VA programs, reverse mortgages for seniors, jumbo loans and more. Whatever your need is, we have a lender for you!
We work closely with attorneys, home stagers, homeowner insurance companies, home inspectors and others with competitive pricing, to be of service to you.
