Brenda Hall Earns NAR's Military Relocation Professional Certification

Brenda Hall Earns NAR’s Military Relocation Professional Certification 

Military Personnel and Veterans Benefit from Realtor® Expertise in Military Benefits, the Relocation Process, and Support

Portsmouth, NH, December 20, 2018 — Brenda Hall with Brick & Barn Real Estate Group has been awarded the nationally recognized Military Relocation Professional Certification.  The National Association of Realtors® awards the MRP certification to Realtors® who help military personnel, veterans and their families find housing that lets them make the best use of their benefits and serves the unique needs of military life.  

When military staff and their families relocate, the services of a real estate professional who understands their needs and timetables can make the transfer easier, faster and less stressful.  Realtors® who earn this certification know to work with active duty military buyers and sellers, as well as veterans.  

“Service members may only have a couple of days to view properties and make an offer, and others might be deployed at the time and need someone who can represent them while they’re away. Working with a Realtor® who understands the singular complications that arise with military service can help make the home buying process simpler, faster and less stressful,” said Scott Rome, CEO of Brick & Barn Real Estate Group. “The MRP certification lets home buyers and sellers know that a Realtor® knows the ins and outs of military housing benefits, such as zero-down payment loans, and the  specific needs service members and veterans have when searching for their new home.” Rome added.

The certification places Brenda in the highest standing to accommodate current and former military service members at any stage of their military career.

    "We are excited to welcome Brick & Barn to our commercial community in the West End,” Jen Chinburg, Vice President of Marketing for Chinburg Properties said. "We think that this space at 155 Brewery Lane will be a perfect fit for the Brick & Barn company culture and business needs,” she added. “Scott and his team will provide another influx of creative professionalism and great service into the West End."

      Fast-Growing, Seacoast Real Estate Company Continues Expanding with the Addition of Vice President of Agent Development

      Fast-Growing, Seacoast Real Estate Company Continues Expanding with the Addition of Vice President of Agent Development

      Portsmouth, NH- October 15, 2018 - Brick & Barn Real Estate Group recently announced that Brenda Hall has joined the company as Vice President of Agent Development, as part of the company’s continued expansion.

      With approximately 40 real estate specialists, in six offices, across four states, Brick & Barn Real Estate Group is one of the fastest-growing real estate companies in the Northeast. In addition to the company’s Portsmouth office, they also have offices in Dover, NH and Newmarket, NH, York, ME, Quechee, VT and Andover, MA.

      “We are delighted Brenda has joined us,” Scott Rome Brick & Barn Real Estate Group CEO said. “Brenda brings extensive experience mentoring new agents, which is ideal for our growing team,” Rome explained. “That combined with her proven sales track record makes her an excellent addition.

      Brenda joined the real estate industry in 2011, with over 15 years of business experience.

      “I am looking forward to bringing Brick & Barn Real Estate Group’s awesome branding and marketing initiatives to my clients,” Hall said. “That combined with the company’s infectious, high-energy culture makes it a very appealing opportunity for me,” she added. “Scott Rome knows how to lead organizations and individuals to success and I’m very excited to be a part of that.”

      As a real estate specialist, Hall delivers exceptional service to customers to ensure they achieve their goals.

      “Now is an ideal time to buy,” Hall noted. “Although inventory is low, the quality of the current inventory is high,” she explained. “Buyers have an opportunity to purchase a home without fighting the multiple offer challenges of the last couple of spring seasons,” she said. “In addition, with the market shifting to a more balanced Seller/Buyer market, Seller pricing is becoming more favorable to buyers,” Hall added. “Sellers are beginning to adjust their expectations on pricing realizing that an overpriced property means they will not be moving!”

      “For buyers interested in new construction, any home builders were over capacity in the Spring and now have time to work with buyers and let them make the special changes to their home so it’s exactly what they have always wanted!”

      In addition to her passion for real estate sales, Hall thrives on coaching agents to achieve their goals. “I ensure my values and business integrity are communicated clearly when agents approach me with a question,” Hall explained. “Ultimately, my  response always ends with 'do the right thing.’”

                5 Home Inspection Tips To Help You Save Time & Money

                One of the most important things to do before buying real estate is to complete a thorough home inspection. This is a time that can be used to determine if the property is a good investment or not. But how do you properly inspect a home if you're new to the business? In addition to matching with a real estate agent and home inspector, our team at Brick & Barn Real Estate Group want to give you a few tips to help you inspect your next home. The following should be closely considered when buying any property: 

                • Be Inquisitive
                • Be Present
                • Take Photos
                • Don't Neglect The Roof
                • Develop Trust With The Inspector

                5 Home Inspection Tips To Help You Save Time & Money

                Be Inquisitive

                Never be afraid to ask questions. After all, this is your money on the line. What may seem like a strange question in your mind could trigger something in the mind of a home inspector that could end up saving you thousands down the road. 

                Be Present

                You would be shocked at the number of people who don't attend a home inspection for a property they intend to buy. Instead, they rely solely on the opinion of the home inspector. While his or her opinion may be valid, it is crucial that you see what needs to be done in person before making any final decisions. This way, you're not blindsided by any unexpected tasks which need to be accomplished that would have caused you not to buy the property had you previously known about them.

                Take Photos

                Your memory may be great, but no one could possibly remember every little detail that is seen during a home inspection. That is why it is so important to take a number of photographs. Many little things in the home can add up to be a serious total bill at the end of the day. Having documented evidence of the deficiencies in a home can allow you to better organize your thoughts and decide whether or not this is a good investment. Plus, if you decide to go through with the sale, you'll have pictures you can use as a checklist when making repairs over time. 

                Don't Neglect The Roof

                Buyers are often so focused on the inside of the house that they often neglect to look at the outside of the house, more specifically, the roof. Those cold and snowy winters, as well as the rainy summers in New England, can quickly take a toll on the roof of any property regardless of how well it was built. Replacing a roof is one of the more costly repairs that a real estate investor or homeowner must make which makes it imperative to know about prior to the initial investment. If it's discovered well after the sale, you may be left holding the very expensive bill to cover the repairs. 

                Develop Trust With The Inspector

                In order to take the word of a home inspector, it is essential to build a trusting relationship with him or her. This relationship usually begins by being introduced to the inspector through a real estate agent. Real estate agents have been in the business for a very long time and know the home inspectors who know their stuff and the ones who are just looking to get paid. A good inspector can ultimately make or break your overall investment on a property. If just one thing goes unnoticed during an inspection, it can end up costing you tens of thousands of extra dollars unexpectedly in the future. 

                Buying real estate can be one of the best investments out there. In fact, it was the famous author Mark Twain who once said, "Buy land, they're not making it anymore". By knowing what to look for and common pitfalls that first time real estate investors often fall into, you can already be ahead of the curve. If you would like to know more about becoming a real estate investor in the New England area then be sure to visit the Brick & Barn Real Estate Group website. They will be able to provide you with a plethora of knowledge on the topic and be able to help get you started on the path to sustainable wealth.

                Brick & Barn Real Estate Group currently lists New England homes ranging from country estates to forest cabins to townhouses and condos. There is a vast selection of sizes and surroundings, but all are a bargain compared to similar properties down south.

                How can a real estate agent help?

                Real estate agents at Brick and Barn Real Estate Group breathe real estate in New England. They know every town, neighborhood, and hot property in their areas. They also know what is going on in the towns and where development is headed in the future.

                Real estate is a local business, and having local experts on your side makes all the difference. Agents know what areas suit their client's needs. They also know the areas to avoid. They are aware of problem properties, and they know where the hidden gems lie. Your real estate agent guides you to the home that will make you happy.

                When you contact one of the agents at Brick and Barn, they find out what type of property will work for you and use their turbocharged search power to find you all the options. Real estate agents can access property options that are not available through a search on Zillow. They also often know when properties are close to coming on the market, or when a seller is about to reduce the price. These pieces of information make all the difference when it comes to getting the best deal on a dream New England home.

                A realtor negotiates on your behalf. They handle real estate deals every day. Their negotiating power allows you to buy a home at a great price, with minimal stress. Few people have the time to negotiate a real estate deal, and they shouldn't try. Not having a realtor in a negotiation is like not having a lawyer in court. Just as an attorney earns his fee by getting you a far better legal result than you could obtain on your own, a real estate agent earns their commission by getting you the best possible property for the best possible terms and price.

                When you work with a realtor, you have an expert looking out for your best interests. Buying a home is thrilling, but someone needs to safeguard your financial and legal interests. Your agent handles all of the important details, like titles, inspections, and earnest money. Agents also can provide you with other needed professionals, like home appraisers and inspectors and real estate attorneys.

                The other great thing about working with a real estate agent is that you know who to call down the line if you want to move. Your agent can work to get you the best price for your home. Now that you are on the seller's side, it's time to think about getting that house looking sharp for a spring open house, so you can get top dollar for your investment.
