Bill Crumbaker’s Experience
· Associate Broker
(Privately Held; Real Estate industry)
1976 — present (35 years)
I have helped over 2,000 families with their real estate needs since 1976. I enjoy working with first time buyers and I teach down payment assistance classes for State Bond and Home Sight. My website is located at: www.firsttimebuyertoday.com.
I also help people to avoid the long lasting effects of foreclosure as a (CSSN) Certified Short Sale Negotiator.
I believe in single party representation. For buyers I have earned the (ABR) Accredited Buyer Representative. For Sellers I have earned the (ASR) Accredited Seller Representative. I am not a dual agent; I only represent one party to the transaction.
I am also a (MCNE) Master Certified Negotiation Expert. Only 7 people in our State Have earned this
valuable designation. Probably the most valued service an agent can provide is the skill of negotiation. I believe in win win negotiations which insure the best results for my clients.
I appreciate quality construction and have earned the designation of: (ALHS) Accredited Luxury Home Specialist for the more expensive home sales.
One of the best benefits my clients receive is my ability to understand and explain the real estate market. I can immediately tell you who the market favors, and by how much. Or it could be a balanced market not favoring either party. Correct analysis of the market makes for better marketing strategies, decisions, and better negotiation results for my clients.
A FREE SERVICE: I provide a free service for people wanting market knowledge about either their own neighborhood or one they may be interested in buying in. Just go to: www.anyneighborhood.net
for a complete a market update on the neighborhood you may be interested in.
- While my focus has been working with buyers during the down turn. I will only list houses I know I can sell as a result all my listings last year have sold. Just this week I have closed one of my first time buyers on a Bank of America owned property in Renton. I know what it takes to get houses sold in this market if the seller is not motivated or unwilling to do what is necessary I will not take the listing.
Note: I worked for about 8 years at Century 21 Smith Ring as one of their Preferred Relocation Listing agents for Cendant Relocation. I had to be able to sell houses of relocating employees throughout all of King County parts Pierce County and Snohomish County as well. We provided BPO’s and managed the sale of these relocating employees’ homes often while they were vacant. We arranged for yard work, repairs, and maintenance of these homes, winterization and so on much like you will find in Reo situations.
