My name is Denise Hamlin and I’m Broker/Owner at Cardinal Realty. My approach to real estate and helping buyers and sellers in the Iowa City area is pretty straightforward. I’ll tell you what I think and help you get where you want to be with the minimum amount of fuss.
Whether you’re thinking of upgrading to a bigger home or downgrading to a smaller one, I can help with both. I’ve built, purchased and sold homes on two continents so can relate to most buying and selling situations. I’ve done a fair amount of relocating myself and know exactly what the challenges are for relocating buyers and sellers.
Past clients will be the first to tell you that I care about the outcome of your real estate transaction. I want my buyer and seller clients to be fully informed when they make decisions in a real estate transaction and don’t experience buyer’s remorse later. I’m a strong advocate for buyer agency and believe that both buyers and sellers should have personal representation in a real estate transaction. For this reason I try to avoid dual agency situations. I see an inherent conflict of interest in representing both buyers and sellers in the same transaction.
Communication is the cornerstone of my business, with technology coming in a close second. When I list your home or help you to buy a home in the Iowa City area I want you to know that I am always available for any and all questions and will always keep you in the loop throughout the transaction. Giving sound advice in all things real estate is what I’m known for. Put me to the test – It won’t take you long to find out that I do walk my talk!
Since I want the transaction to run as smoothly as possible I incorporate technology into my strategy whenever possible. Electronic signing is standard – A huge convenience to all buyers and sellers, particularly those who don’t have reliable access to a computer and rely on hand held devices.
My #1 goal is to do a good job for my clients. By combining a personal approach with the latest and best in technology my clients get the best of both worlds.
Do you think the Internet has changed how we do business? I’m a firm believer that is has and have several online resources for buyers and sellers.
