Sweeney & O'Connell Real Estate is proud to be a Member of the Realty Guild

 

Sweeney & O'Connell Real Estate is proud to be a member of the Realty Guild.

 


 

 

 

 


 

Scope

 

From Cape Cod to Newburyport and from Back Bay to Amherst, the Realty Guild is an extensive network with 52 offices, 150 cities & towns served, 750 agents, and 1.75 billion dollars in annual sales.

 

Reputation

 

Realty Guild offices are among the most respected and productive in New England.  Because all members are REALTORS, they follow a strict code of ethics; because they own and control their own businesses, they are free of corporate pressures; and because they are committed to their communities, they are responsive to your needs.

 

Exclusivity

 

Realty Guild members are a select group of independent real estate offices not affliated with a franchise or chain.  Membership is exclusive, allowing only one office per city or town.

 


 

Choose an Independent Member of the Realty Guild

 

Because they are independent, members are able to provide you with the highest level of service without the restrictions that come from being micromanaged by "corporate headquarters."  Realty Guild members do not take a cookie cutter approach to real estate.  How your property is marketed depends on many things, such as location, price, and even the time of the year.  Independent Realty Guild members are able to customize their approach to your property. 

 

You want your real estate office to be up-to-date on the latest sales techniques, regulations and internet marketing trends.  Realty Guild offices are trained by the best in the business.  The Realty Guild provides continuting education programs for sales associates throughout the year, monthly meetings for the broker/owners of our member firms, and special training for new agents.

 

Across the Commonwealth, look for the Realty Guild logo to find a professional and successful real estate company with an in-depth understanding of your community, and the real estate market as a whole. 

 

 

 

Did you know that?

 

Realty Guild offices do more business per agent than most national franchises and chains in their town?  Don't always assume that the office with the largest number of agents is the "biggest."  Look for an office with agents that produce.  Are you better off working with an office that does $25 million/year with 30 agents or one that does $25 million/year with 10 agents?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sweeney & O'Connell has a new Home

We have a new Home...1189 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA   02476. We are just two doors down from our old office in the same building on the corner in an office full of natural light.  It has been a long time coming but the renovations are just about done.  We are just waiting for the cable and phones to be installed.  Today our new furniture is being delivered and the cable guy is here installing the lines.  Monday... fingers crossed the phones will be in.  So hopefully we will be in and fully functioning on August 1st.

We can't wait to show off our new digs. Please come by and visit our new office & pick up your complimentary gift (while supplies last).  I will let you know when the office is officially up and running so you can stop by.

Look forward to seeing you. The Sweeney & O'Connell Real Estate Team.

Add Curb Appeal and Value to Your Home

The exterior of your home is the gateway to your home. It is the first thing a buyer sees that can either entice them or deter them. When putting your home on the market the goal is to get a buyer into your home not just drive on by. If a buyer sees a shabby exterior they assumed the interior is just as bad and will never enter your home. A well maintained and landscaped home sells faster and gets more showings then one in disrepair.

With simple fixes and a little elbow grease you can add thousands to the value of your home and cut down on your selling time.

The attached article gives you 8 tips to add curb appeal and value to your home. These tips are not only for the person selling their home, but great hints to keep your house from costly repairs in the future.

We hope you find this article helpful. If you have any questions regarding this article or any other real estate question please call us @ 781-643-7478 or contact us by email anytime.
