Ask Mac

Below are questions I am often asked about buying or selling a home. If you find these helpful, and if these might bring other questions to mind, Please let me know with the form below.

1) How do I find a good home?
  • Work with an experienced, local Realtor-call Mac 770-633-3250
  • Understand that the best homes (based on location, lot, condition and price) will sell FAST
  • Many homes are sold privately (they are not listed on the internet)

At STEP Realty, we visit the neighborhoods, we preview the listed homes, we monitor the homes and track the prices. All of this “pays off” for our clients as they get insight into the market that helps them make better decisions.

2) Why are you “always in my neighborhood”?

We are constantly looking for the good homes in this dynamic market. We’re also constantly evaluating home values. The housing market in Mableton, Smyrna and Vinings is quite desirable for all types for buyers.

3) Do I have to sign a Buyer’s Brokerage Agreement?

No, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this agreement with you.

4) Who pays for your outstanding service?

We are paid by the Listing Broker.

5) My neighbors just listed their home. What is the price?

Good question, just give me the address.

6) My neighbors just sold their home. What is the sold price?

Good question, just give me the address.

7) Just curious, what is the current value of my home?

A lot of factors determine the “market value” of a home. Call Mac, the local expert.

8) Why are you one of the best Realtors in the area?
  • I love what I do – helping people make good real estate decisions.
  • Buying or selling a home isn’t always easy. I care about helping you with your needs and concerns. I work “with you” and “for you” negotiating in your best interest to get you the best price
  • I communicate constantly, keeping you informed every step of the way.
  • I’m a firm believer that knowledge is power. I know the communities (the properties, the prices, etc). I know the contracts (the process of buying and selling, the paperwork, etc.).

9) What is your educational background?

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin with an MBA in Finance and an undergraduate degree in Marketing. I have also completed the Graduate Realtor Institute coursework as well as numerous continuing education classes for Real Estate.

Past experiences include corporate banking and mortgage banking which led to my career in real estate.

My background is ideal for helping you manage and negotiate the purchase of  your largest financial investment.

10) Are you “Mableton Mac”?

Yes, that is me, but I also sell homes in Smyrna and Vinings as well.
