Reliable and titled Listings:
You can trust our listings to be legitimate and reliable because we are selective in the listings we represent. Unlike other agencies who "borrow" listings on demand, or what the call "Handshake here", we personally know our seller clients. With fully signed and legitimate Listing Contracts, along with proof of the seller’s identification, and legal titles. The majority of our photos were physically taken by our Professional photographers, and are the real deal!
Many of our listings are exclusive to Reliable Realty – meaning we know our sellers well, are well situated to work with our sellers for a fair negotiation; meaning, we can also provide speedy, yet accurate closings with easy transfer of title into our new owners names. Knowing the status and personal requirements of each Seller, makes our Agency transparent with a higher chance of our Buyer clients offers going through. No stress of "long waits "wondering" if you offer will be accepted.
We are NOT a High Pressure Agency
To be quite honest, we are too busy to "chase leads.” We believe that when you are "ready, willing and able" to purchase/ or sell, you will select the agency you trust and are most comfortable with. We hope that your choice will be RELIABLE REALTY SRL!
