What Makes Us Different?

When we started the Home Centers Realty concept, we wanted to be a different kind of real estate company.  For more than fifteen years, we have been focused on giving North Texas home buyers and home sellers the very best real estate experience possible.  Sammy Gardner first became involved in Real Estate as a mortgage loan officer and eventually opened his own mortgage brokerage.  While he became acquainted with many very nice Realtors during this time, he realized that many of them simply were not serving their clients in the best possible way.  Simply having a real estate license does not equip someone with the knowledge and experience that is necessary to understand various markets.  Sammy realized that on too many occasions, some of the larger real estate firms were so focused on retention of realtors and in collecting fees that they would distribute new client leads on an "as needed to retain" basis.  This meant that the given Realtor might not even know the specific real estate market, schools, neighborhoods or communities.  The real estate clients were being greatly underserved. So, he determined that he would create boutique real estate firms which included realtors that were specialists in those markets.  

Beginning in Frisco, he and Debbie set out to learn as much about their community as possible.  They became deeply entrenched in Frisco, learning every nook and cranny.  In that way, they became Frisco real estate experts.  They soon realized they needed others who could help assist clients in the neighboring communities.  Overtime, they have also enlisted other agents that serve Frisco, McKinney, Allen, Prosper, Celina, Plano, Lewisville, Little Elm, Castle Hills and Lantana.  These agents work hard to stay on top of the the latest market conditions, school districts, property tax rates, etc.  They are local area experts and are ready to serve you.

Buyers' Representation

When you enlist one of our market specialists as your Buyer's Representative, we go to work to ensure the house hunting process goes smoothly. We become a resource for your mortgage financing, as well as your guide to neighborhood amenities.  Just call us your Real Estate Concierges, because we aim to serve every unique need.   You can help us serve you by determining your budgetary parameters and by prioritizing you "must haves" and wishes for your next home.  Then, we go to work to help you find that home.

One of the most important things we do is help you determine the fair price of the homes so you can make an offer.  Once you find that special home that catches your eye, we research the sold prices of comparable properties in the area. Then we negotiate on your behalf with the seller's listing agent to make sure you get the most favorable terms.  In all aspects, we have your best interest in mind.  Best of all....we do all this  at no cost to you as a buyer.

If you're ready to start house hunting, you can search real estate listings now. You can also refer to our Buyer's Guide for helpful tools and buying advice. To start working with an agent right away, please contact us.

Sellers' Representation

It can be overwhelming considering selling a home by yourself. You must decide how you are going to market your home and get it in front of the largest number of buyers.  You have to arrange to be home to show the property when someone wants to see it.  There are safety concerns to consider.  You have to figure out how to know which buyers are truly qualified to purchase your property.  Then, you will have to negotiate the contract, worry about contract deadlines, contingencies.  Plus, you must ensure that all of the contracts are filled out appropriately so there are no misunderstandings down the road.  

It is so much easier if you allow an experienced agent to handle these details on your behalf.  Our extensive home marketing plan and task management system will help alleviate the stress.  This allows you to focus on your move into your next dream home.

You can count on us to guide through every step.  We will help you price your home after evaluating comparable homes in your area.  We will help you with staging advice.  We may even suggest ways to improve your landscaping and drive-up appeal. We want to give your home every possible advantage of appealing to the largest number of buyers.  Our extensive buyer representation history ensures that we know just what today's buyers are looking for.

We look forward to working with you to sell your home.
