As an Air Force veteran, Bill Albright understands the value of clear communication, organization and integrity.
Bill, whose Newberry Realty office in Kent serves all areas of King and Pierce Counties, sees himself as an advocate who works quickly, but still cares: “My reputation is the only thing I have to offer, and I do not want to tarnish that. I have heart and I thoroughly enjoy cultivating relationships with my clients,” he reflects.
With real estate experience back to 2006, the values learned while in uniform continue to inform how Bill approaches clients, from the beginning of the process to the end.
“I could have my own office and have employees working under me, but it’s so rewarding when I see a Veteran family, a young couple or a family with kids get their first home. It brings me such joy,” he says.
Getting the buyer’s edge
How can you benefit from those years of experience in a challenging market?
- Do focus on homes that are attainable. Focus on homes that meet your family’s needs and are within your budget. Home buyers don’t want to be overwhelmed with ‘Realtor speak’ or have their dream seem like an out-of-reach, watered-down goal. “I’ll work to get buyers pre-approved with a reputable lender, then when they know what they can spend, I won’t show them homes they can’t afford,” Bill explains.
- Don’t stray from areas you want to live in. Focus on the area you want to live in, and Bill will create customized a plan based on that area.
- Don’t rule out lease-to-own options. “I’m a partner with a company called Home Partner of America, a lease-to-own company, that’s ideal for buyers who aren’t quite sure yet where they want to live. They can lease a home for a year, and if they decide they want to buy it, I will make it happen,” Bill says.
- Do acknowledge that some homes aren’t right for you. “I will give my honest opinion about why a particular home would or not be a wise purchase for you,” Bill says.
The bottom line: “I streamline the process for my clients,” Bill says. “You don’t have to worry about home inspections, lender appraisals or working with lender appraisals or escrow companies – we look after all that with you.”
