The Dean Aguilar Group Advantage:
Critical Assistance When and Where You Need It Most!
Buying a new home is a major financial commitment and you’ll want to have a trustworthy professional to guide you through the process. The first step is to do your research. Look at Realtors, Agents and agencies. What is the difference between a Realtor and a Real Estate Agent? Realtors belong to a national association and an extra set of Code of Ethics. All of the Dean Aguilar Group agents are Realtors. There are thousands of agents to choose from in the San Diego market, if we’re being honest, you will quickly find that not all agents are created equally.
The Dean Aguilar Group is an agency built upon on a simple premise: people matter. And because people matter, relationships matter. On top of the traditional Real Estate Agency services, we are more than just a team of agents. Our team consists of:
– Operations Manager – Your personal concierge. They will help set up showings,
– Marketing Manager – Your personal marketing guru to help celebrate your win or to market a house you need to sell to buy your dream home.
– Transaction Coordinator – Your personal contract expert. They will ensure that all your i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed.
All our Realtors offer excellent customer service and provide all our clients with market conditions to advise/educate you on the buying process. Pre-approvals, loan types (conventional or VA/FHA), appraisals, inspection reports, negotiations and more, we vet our partners to ensure that you have a great above the board experience with all aspects of buying a home.
Our team’s 45 years of experience and strong relationships within the industry allow us to provide elevated assistance to buy home San Diego, including:
- Access to off-market properties:
Any realtor will be able to show you homes posted to MLS, a national database of real estate listings, a simple google search will do that. What they can’t show you are the homes that aren’t publicly listed – homes otherwise known as “off-market” properties or private sales. In order to find out about these homes for sale, you need to have a network of Realtors who work together. DAG agents have a robust network of connections throughout the real estate industry, from partnerships with other San Diego agencies to homeowners who are still on the fence about whether to sell. Our access to off-market properties means more opportunities for you to buy before the general public even knows the home is for sale and you are in a better position for negotiations on these homes and winning an accepted offer.
- Individual MLS access:
Once we get an idea of the homes you are looking for, we will send you a daily or weekly digest of MLS listings that have recently gone live. But what if you change your mind about what you want, or want to poke around homes of different criteria? Today’s market moves quickly and you should have full access to explore MLS as you want, whenever you want. That’s why DAG sets up each of our clients with your own MLS account. We want to empower you because we’re working together as a team. See something you like? Simply forward it to your Realtor and we will set up showings right away!
- Foreclosure access:
It’s an unfortunate reality: sometimes banks are forced to sell a home through a foreclosure auction. You can get a great deal by buying at auction, but auctions also tend to bring out stiff competition (particularly from investors and house “flippers”). We prefer to cut straight to the chase. DAG leverages our relationships with banks, mortgage brokers and lawyers to find out about underwater properties while they’re still in the pre-foreclosure process. Some of these deals are hiding right in plain sight – but only savvy agents know where to look.
- Probate access:
Buying real estate through probate is complicated and dealing with the court system is never fun. DAG believes our clients are worth the hassle. We know how to identify open cases and navigate the probate docket, then we use our relationships with attorneys, courts and other professionals involved in the estate process to help DAG clients pick up property at a fraction of the price.
- Detailed reports and market data:
The old real estate adage is “location, location, location!” Times have changed. The secret ingredient today? “Data, data, data.” DAG scours proprietary databases to provide clients with real-time reports about market conditions, school performance, community safety and the like. Pulling a few neighborhood comps is easy. We take it to the next level by evaluating broader real estate trends, including movement in interest rates and local home buyer assistance programs. Equipped with this data, you’re able to make the most competitive offer – backed by real data – and can save tens of thousands of dollars in the process and make tens of thousands in equity quickly!
You matter. People matter. Relationships matter. That’s the DAG advantage.
