Tina Merritt Expertise
My areas of "expertise" are selling homes that are difficult to sell, managing portfolios for investors and helping banks liquidate their foreclosure inventory. Sometimes, all it takes is a price adjustment, furniture placement or a coat of paint. Other times, it takes a whole new marketing strategy, extensive networking or market repositioning to get a property sold.
My goal with buyers is to build their wealth and real estate portfolio, not to ensure their couch fits perfectly in their living room. I look at a house as a small business which is there to provide an immediate need, (shelter) but also to provide long term (or short term) income.
Now, the "REAL" Tina:
I am a wife and mother, first and foremost. My family is my life, my pride and my true love.
As a graduate of Virginia Tech, I am a Hokie. My college experience played an important role in molding me into the person I am today. Blacksburg and Virginia Tech will always be near and dear to me and I support my alma mater as a season ticket holder and member of the Hokie Club and Alumni Association.
Real estate is a business transaction and while my clients can sometimes get very emotional, my goal is to keep their business interests as my priority. I want my clients to make smart and wise financial real estate decisions that will assist them in achieving their financial goals.
