Welcome to my website and allow me to introduce myself to you!
(Please scroll through the entire page.)
My name is Joe Tenerelli and I have been the broker owner for Flintridge Realty for over 4 decades and have closed over $500,000,000 in Real Estate transactions. I have marketed properties ranging from large multi-million dollar estates and oceanfronts to single family residences and townhomes. I'm also a Zillow Premiere Agent http://www.zillow.com/profile/outgeneraling/
My company is not a franchise or a multi office operation, we have one office, which is all that is needed in todays internet age. Did you know that over 90% of clients looking to purchase a property use the internet to search!
In todays marketplace paying a Realtor 5% or 6% of your property sales price is not the normal any more.
We have no sales managers, franchise owners or stockholders to please and pay! Highly qualified and professional agents only.
No luxury automobiles or opulent offices, just highly knowledgeable and hard working agents.
Why pay an enormous commission to market your property when it is instantly sold with multiple offers over the asking price? The internet has changed everything.
When your property information is entered into the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) , it is automatically linked to all the major Real Estate sites, Zillow, Realtor.com, Homeseekers, Trulia and many more, for people around the world to search.
If you are thinking about doing a "short sale", give me a call, I'm short sale certified and can guide you through the process.
Due to the lack of new construction and available land to build their is a definite shortage and high demand of properties in Southern California . Multiple offers are the norm these days.
We never charge any upfront costs or processing fees and if your property does not close escrow you pay zero.
