What Changes in 11 Years? (#TBT)

A whole lot. And not very much. When it comes to real estate there are variables that will fluctuate over the years - home prices, inventory, days on market. And there are constants that will remain unchanged - pricing a home to sell, marketing a home effectively, and keeping a long list of happy clients.

We're throwing back to a 2003 Home Advantage Team video, and it's interesting to hear the tried and true real estate strategies and approach to client service that we still employ today.


Just as it is in 2014, or as it was in 2003, or even 1986 when Steve started out in the business, every client has a unique plan tailored to their specific home selling needs. The Home Advantage Team 'lifts the burden of selling a home and takes off the shoulders of the seller.' The entire process - including all of the nuances, on-the-fly changes, and handling of market fluctuations - are handled by the team.

The Team isn't in this business to make a quick buck, or to use it as a stepping stone for their next career move. Year after year of proven results and happy clients are what make Steve McKenna and The Home Advantage Team Arlington's #1 real estate team.

Take a look at the throwback (#TBT) video and see what time tells.

We Sold it, You Told it

There are many reasons why client testimonials are an integral part of a successful real estate agent's business. For us, they build trust, validate our services and confirm our status as the #1 real estate team in Arlington. This latest testimonial is from a satisfied seller at Watermill Place.

Convenient to the Minuteman Bikeway, Mass. Ave. and everything Arlington has to offer, Watermill Place is one of the most sought-after condominiums buildings in town. As a rainmaker at Watermill Place for many years, I understand of the evolving pool of buyers interested in living there, and how best to market and sell Watermill Place homes.

We sold it, you told it.  Many thanks to Bill for your generous testimonial.

Bill - Seller at Watermill Place in Arlington

Steve was very involved in the sale of our home at Watermill Place. As we began the process, a friend from a different town recommended another real estate agent in the area, but there was no comparison. Steve was well known, respected and highly recommended by everyone I knew at Watermill Place.

Steve stood out with his knowledge about Arlington and real estate in the area. He and I hit it off immediately and it was a pleasure working with him. Selling our home couldn't have been smoother - we had an open house on Sunday, two offers on Tuesday and selected an offer the next day.

We were very happy with the performance of Steve McKenna & The Home Advantage Team.

If You're Happy and You Know It

When you were little, if you were happy and you knew it - you clapped your hands.

Now, if you're happy and you know it - you tell someone about it!

As a REALTOR®, the best compliment you can get for providing great service isn't a gift card, flowers, or a free lunch (not that we don't appreciate thanks in all of its forms) - it is when you share your experience with others.

To know that we've done our best and our best has resulted in another happy client is why we come to work every day. We sincerely appreciate when you provide referrals and share your experience with your friends, family, neighbors and networks.

And it's never been easier if you're happy and you know, and you really want to show it, to share it with others. Send us a quick email, give us a call (781-645-0505), write a quick review on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, or right here in the comments section of the blog.

Here is the feedback from a recent seller in Arlington. Many thanks!


Seller on George Street in Arlington

"I think Steve is a terrific leader and we were impressed with his professionalism and sincerity. Steve led our family through the home selling process during a difficult time. From securing contractors for home repairs, to a stager, to finding charities to donate items no longer needed - Steve & The Home Advantage Team handled every aspect of the preparation and selling of our home.

His knowledge of local real estate is unprecedented - he knew how to price and market our home for the current pool of buyers. We had more than 100 people come through the open house and it sold immediately.

My family has moved many times throughout the years, and I am familiar in working with real estate professionals. Steve & The Home Advantage Team are a cut above the rest. When he says he'll get back to me, he does. He was always there to help every step of the way and we never felt alone.

I would recommend Steve McKenna & The Home Advantage Team to anyone with real estate needs."
