There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a central West Virginia real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
If it is your first home, your forever home, farm, or recreational property I can guide you through the sometimes complicated process. Growing up on a farm in these beautiful hills make me uniquely qualified to help with rural challenges. I speak farming. With over 30 years of running a real estate business I also speak business.
So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell real estate in central West Virginia, please contact me, Mike Greenlee, Broker for Old Fences Realty, INC.
