At Hallmark Properties we put a lot of signs in people’s front yards.   Whether they are seen by the neighbors, someone driving by, or our own clients, we want them to stand for one thing: the sign of excellence. Here’s what that means to us.

The Sign of Excellence

The Services You Need

We help clients with both the buying and selling sides of the Real Estate transaction process.  Not only can we represent you in the sale or purchase of your home, but we also handle a substantial amount of commercial, farm and land transactions. Whether you are interested in a home listed by us or someone else, we can serve as your broker, working for the best outcome for you.

A Client-Focused Approach

Every transaction is unique. Our goal at Hallmark Properties is to take the stress out of buying or selling homes and to provide personal and professional service to each of our clients. That means answering any and all of your questions about the transaction, helping you select and be qualified by a lender if needed, negotiating the sales price and terms, assisting with financing and escrow, and handling the coordination of the transaction and paperwork. Should repairs be required, we even supply a list of contractors to help you find who you may want to work with.

An Experienced Team

Every transaction benefits from not just one Realtor’s experience in the field, but from the whole Hallmark team; it’s common—and very intentional—to find us helping each other out with information and insight in negotiating repairs, sales price and terms. Should any particular agent not be available, there is always someone to assist. We genuinely care about each client’s needs. (You can meet our Realtors here.)

In-depth Market Expertise

Hallmark Properties conducts weekly research into the changing conditions of the market to better inform our clients. We understand how market inventory and absorption rates affect your transaction.

Outstanding Listing Exposure

We serve the entire Willamette Valley, and are members of both area multiple listing services: the Portland Multiple Listing Service and the Willamette Valley Multiple Listing Service. That means any homes you list with us will get significant exposure to other buyers and Realtors locally, regionally and statewide.

Eighty nine percent (89%) of home buyers start their search on the Internet. Forty one percent  (41%) find the home they actually purchase online.  We make sure your property is available wherever a potential buyer might be looking: i.e., Google, Yahoo Real Estate, Trulia, Zillow, AOL Real Estate and an additional 40+ web-sites including our own.

Technology Friendly

For clients who prefer the convenience of a digital-first approach, we have you covered. First, you can use our website to save real estate searches, save properties you are interested in, and get email notifications of updates. But perhaps more importantly, through text messages, email, cloud-based documents, and electronic signatures we work to make the entire process as efficient and convenient as possible, reducing wasted paper and decreasing time-to-close.

Any one of these things is valuable on its own, but taken together they mean less time wasted on failed transactions and more homes successfully sold; whether you’re a buyer or a seller, that is good for everyone! Contact us today about your Real Estate needs.
