REALTOR

I have been in the real estate business for over 17 years. Before my career as a real estate agent, I worked as a general contractor in the Toledo and surrounding areas.  After becoming a Realtor, I quickly found myself answering questions for my clients about remodeling projects, the structural integrity of homes, and general maintenance issues.  My background in contracting has become very useful in guiding my clients to the best, and most secure homes for their investment. On the Sellers side, I bring the same ideals.  I focus on the benefits and features of your home.  It is imperative that each property is individually assessed and marketed unique to its condition, location, and value.   Before hiring your next agent read the following statement below. Then call me!! 

Does your real estate agent have an aggressive internet marketing campaign? We're not talking about how a realtor markets their business on the internet - we're talking about how your realtor promotes your property listing on the internet.

In my opinion, it's not enough to put the listing in the multiple listing service ("MLS") and wait until the listing is "syndicated" to other websites. Think of it in terms of "traditional" marketing of your property. It's not enough to put a realtor "for sale" sign in front of the property and wait until buyers show up.

Today's successful real estate internet marketing campaign includes additional online promotion of property listings. There's no one right way to do this - each agent has their own style, their own "tried and true" methods for online promotion that work in their area and in their marketplace. For some agents, and in some areas, putting the listing on an internet classified ad website such as Craigslist draws potential buyers. For other agents, and in other real estate market areas, adding the listing to a blog can draw an audience. Many agents will post the listing on social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, etc. to promote the listing to their network of connections. And other agents use videos to promote their listings. All strategies are good - and can be effective ways to expand the marketing of a property online. I recommend that agents have their listings displayed on their personal real estate websites as well as on their company's real estate website - at a minimum.

Home sellers can truly benefit from the online promotion of their property. If you are a home seller, ask your realtor to explain their internet marketing campaign.

Internet marketing is important for any property listing. The ability to reach a worldwide audience of potential buyers is amazing! Shouldn't your property have that advantage?

       

 

"I worked with Joe on some projects while I was working for Rick's Custom Tile a few years back. His reputation and skill were hard to match in the tile and flooring industry. He is very knowledgeable in the contracting industry, which in turn gives him a knowledge base in reality. I always found Joe to be honest and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Joe as working with him has always been a pleasure. "

My husband and I chose Joe Rigali and Danberry after meeting with other realtors in the area and coming to the conclusion that all realtors are not the same. Joe Rigali is a consummate professional and we recommend him without hesitation for any and all of your realtor needs. Choose Mr. Rigali if you want a knowledgeable attentive realtor that takes the uniqueness of his clients and their homes into consideration as he prepares the best marketing plan for your special needs. If you need a full time realtor who makes himself available to you day or night, do yourself a favor and choose Joe. Joe was well versed in everything we needed to sell our home at a price that satisfied both the buyers and us. Joe marketed our home in such a way that our home had the best exposure online with professional photos, staging and written descriptions that brought in interested buyers, Joe loves challenges and doesn’t shy away from tough situations and we provided him with a few of those. Just do it, call Joe.

After opening our home to ten realtors wanting the opportunity to list our Waterville home of forty-two years, we signed a contract with Joe Rigali who surpassed the others with his marketing expertise and use of social media. Joe is a dedicated professional and becomes an active partner with his clients. His honesty, professionalism and responsiveness gained our trust immediately. He patiently guided us through the sale of our ninety-nine year old unique home that was on the market for the first time in its history, and he had two offers within the first month. Joe was always willing to listen to our thoughts and ideas while sharing his advice gained through experience at the same time. He is a remarkable realtor and is not afraid of challenges. We are more than thankful for the outstanding performance of this Danberry employee, and we highly recommend him for all real estate needs. It is obvious that he loves his profession, and we consider him to be a 24/7 realtor!

"Joe was great! He went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied with my purchase. I have already recommended him to friends and family. He always called me back and responded in a timely manner. When the sellers of the home left the house a disgusting mess and left a lot of their belongings (trash) still in the home, he went out of his way to make that up to me with a cleaning company and movers to remove the items. He did a great job with listening to what I wanted and delivered. I’m very happy with how everything turned out!"

"We were extremely grateful to have found such a trustworthy and dependable realtor, partner, and friend in Joe Rigali, throughout the process of selling our home. As the process of buying or selling a home comes with its natural ups and downs, you will want to work with a realtor who is quick to respond to your immediate questions and concerns — someone who will handle any issues that arise — someone you have confidence in and someone you trust to get the job done. We found that in Joe and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home (especially in the Anthony Wayne area)! He always goes the extra mile for his clients and is not above helping out in ANY part of the process (as evidenced by his willingness to troubleshoot in our crawl space! Or put up with our toddlers in meetings! ) Thank you Joel’s !"

"To say Joe has been a pleasure to work with would be an understatement. As first time home buyers, moving to Ohio from out of state AND being on a time crunch, we had an enormous amount of questions and stress. Joe was always quick to respond to calls, texts and emails. He never once made us feel like we were an inconvenience to him, instead, we felt like our home search was his priority. He did a great job of explaining everything to us in a way we’d easily understand and was flexible with his schedule, which was very important to us. He was honest, reassuring and confident throughout our search. He gave us knowledgeable feedback on areas to focus on, knew the market very well, and his contractor background was clutch during home showings. He is extremely professional while also making you feel like a lifelong friend at the same time. We can’t say enough great things about Joe and look forward to working with him in the future!"

He helped us understand every step along the way, took time to explain everything, was available day or night, and answer every question that we had! This did not feel like house hunting with a stranger, it felt like we were house hunting with a family member! If you need a realtor you cannot go wrong if you call Joe!"

"Joe was there every step of the way. As this was our first time buying, we really had no clue to what we were doing. If we had a question, Joe was very responsive whether it be via text or phone call. He isn't out there just for a sale, he genuinely cares and will give his honest opinion of each property shown and if there is an issue with it he will bring it up. I can't thank him enough for what he did for us in this process!"
