Crotinger Real Estate is an agent subsidiary of Keller Williams Real Estate. Crotinger Real Estate is led by Rick Crotinger, a real estate agent servicing the greater Philadelphia, PA area. Crotinger helps clients both looking to sell their home or purchase a home and is an expert in both processes.
Former Crotinger Real Estate clients have expressed general satisfaction with the work Rick has done on their behalf. He has been successful in helping clients get their dream homes even during hot seller’s markets. He has also helped clients hoping to sell their homes at a competitive rate when the market favored buyers.
The process Rick Crotinger uses to get clients through the buying and selling processes is streamlined and effective. As a local realtor, Rick knows the ins and outs of the Philadelphia market and can help clients navigate the complex nature of purchasing and selling a home.
Once a client looking to buy a home has figured out what their timeline is and how much they are willing to spend on a home, Crotinger Real Estate will go over their needs and wants in a home. Once all of this information is gathered, Crotinger Real Estate provides the following pre-offer services to clients:
Not all real estate agents will help clients obtain pre-approval letters or ensure that homes looked at match specific client criteria. These are vital services that Crotinger Real Estate provides.
Once a client finds a home they are interested in, the offer process begins. Crotinger Real Estate will draft the official offer and send it to the seller’s agent. Items included in a Crotinger Real Estate offer include the following:
Even in a hot seller’s market, Crotinger Real Estate believes that an offer can be fair to both the buyer and the seller.
Once an offer has been accepted, many real estate agents will take a step back and consider work to essentially be done. That is not the case with Crotinger Real Estate. Clients can expect the following post-offer services:
Assisting through these steps will be particularly beneficial for first time home buyers in the Philadelphia area.
Some clients are considering tackling the selling process without a realtor in hopes of saving money on the sale. With Crotinger Real Estate, clients will only pay 2 to 3 percent off of the top of the sale. In return, Crotinger Real Estate handles the marketing, listing, showings schedule, staging, and offer reviews. Some real estate agents are charging as much as 5 percent, so Crotinger Real Estate commissions are reasonable.
Crotinger Real Estate is equipped to handle clients that are both buying and selling homes. To assist these clients before, during, and after the sale process, Crotinger Real Estate has provided complete guides for clients. In these guides, clients can find all pertinent information to their situation and understand what the home buying and selling process encompasses. Not every real estate agent makes this information clear, but Crotinger Real Estate does.
Since Crotinger Real Estate is a one-man operation, the service area that can be covered is relatively small. Most other agencies cover multiple states or regions throughout the country, but Crotinger Real Estate is geographically focused on servicing the Philadelphia area. Outside of Philadelphia, prospective home buyers or sellers will need to look elsewhere for real estate services.
Prior to working as a real estate agent, Rick Crotinger, worked as a financial analyst in New York City. Rick Crotinger took up real estate in 2018 and has been working in the Philadelphia area ever since. With only a few years of experience under his belt, Rick Crotinger is considered relatively new to the industry in comparison to other real estate agents that have been working in the space for decades.
