Hello, I am Marjie Van Der Laan, happy and thankful to be of one the very few fourth generation real estate brokers in the world. My family's involvement in real estate dates back to 1935, so I guess real estate is in my genes! After working in real estate for two years in Southern California, I moved to the Pacific Northwest, which I now call my home.
My real estate partner and husband, D. Michael Zaviska, is fluent in English, German and Czech languages. He has a background of working through difficult situations in international business and has an excellent track record in finding win-wins for clients and negotiating positive outcomes.
BUYERS: We truly enjoy helping buyers work toward their goals and are attentive listeners. I use my in-depth experience, negotiating skills and knowledge about current market conditions to benefit our clients.
I wrote, "A Buyer's Guide to Short Sales and Bank Owned Homes," a 17-page report, which I give to all of our clients, to help them navigate through buying these types of distressed property sales.
We have a rating system to make sure you are buying the right home for you, not just a house you will be dissatisfied with in 1 to 5 years. 97% of our clients do not move because we help them find the right home, and accordingly, we gratefully receive referrals from our past clients. We want you to be pleased with your home.
SELLERS: We offer top-level full-service listing services with competitive pricing in the Portland Metro Area and Southwest Washington. We include High Definition virtual slide shows in all of our listings and take 150-200 photos per house to get the very best photos for the listing and the video tour. Michael is the official photographer for our listings, using high end camera equipment with the latest technology and photo editing software to help your home look its best. Since over 94% of buyers look online, having amazing photos makes a difference.
We have a proven marketing plan to get your home sold for the highest price in the shortest period of time. We give the best to you with unlimited high-quality full-color flyers until your home is sold. We syndicate your listing out to over 90 websites, plus the 1,000+ which receive IDX feeds, ensuring you have the best and most comprehensive online presence. While marketing that consistently outperforms the competition and helping sellers save money, we demonstrate that are truly "Committed to Your Success!"
You can count on our ability to anticipate and be proactive to represent your best interests. We guide you through the process of buying and selling to make it a streamlined process that is low stress, uncomplicated and even fun.
Let's get together and talk about your home buying and/or selling plans. Call/text me on my cell phone (503-610-0650) or send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set-up a time to talk. I look forward to meeting you!
