Who we are ...

Real Estate Experts is a residential real estate company. We have been serving the local market for over twenty-five years. We go above and beyond to provide exceptional service to our clients. Not only are we experts in our market, the real estate transaction, negotiation, and marketing, we are out-of-the-box thinkers. With you the client in mind, we listen and we deliver the results you ask for.

One of the most important things we can do for our clients is set your expectations throughout every step of your transaction whether you are buying or selling your home. Real Estate is a complex business and a transaction moves on a linear path but many things can happen throughout the process that affect decisions you will make. We know the entire process deeply and we make sure you are educated to make really good decisions that protect your interests.
