Why Hallmark Properties

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.

Interested in homes not listed by Hallmark Properties?  Not a problem.  We can still serve as your broker, working for the best outcome for you.

A Client-Focused Approach

Real Estate transactions represent the largest purchase most of us ever make, and involve quite a bit of complexity which is why most people choose to use a Real Estate Broker. 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.

We assist each client with their unique needs; from selecting and having them qualified by a lender to answering any and all their questions about the transaction.  Every transaction is different.   We can help with the many variables each experience will involve.

Our Real Estate Brokers negotiate for our clients on every point of the transaction, from negotiating the sales price and terms, to assisting with financing and escrow. We handle the coordination of the transaction and paperwork.  When repairs are required, we will supply a list of contractors for you to choose from and contact.

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.  Realtor.com, Google, Yahoo Real Estate, Trulia, Zillow, AOL Real Estate and an additional 40+ web-sites including our own.

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.)

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.
