Luxury Lake Oconee Real Estate continues its upward trajectory with no signs of stopping. When Ted and Riezl Baker launched their brokerage in January of this year, no one could have known how the pandemic would change the world. The couple was determined to push through unprecedented times by creating a strategy to stay engaged with their customers while casting a wide net to market their properties. Today, they are seeing the results of their efforts with over $36 million in sold and pending properties for the first half of the year.
“The pandemic fueled a migration into our community,” said Ted Baker, Managing Broker and President-Elect for the local board of Realtors®. “Our team was determined to succeed by finding ways to provide superb service to our customers even during the most challenging times,” he added.
Susan Mason, one of the group’s clients can attest to this quality of service. “From the moment we engaged with the team, we received, among other things, knowledgeable, professional, and timely service. I cannot recall one occasion when we reached out for anything; the team proactively engaged with us to ensure all of our questions were answered. This not only happened pre-sale, but it also happened post-sale,” she shared.
Ted also attributes the company’s positive momentum to a strong marketing plan, and an efficient team. He credits Riezl for innovative marketing with a target of reaching a broader base of customers, “Riezl is one of the most driven and creative people I know,” remarked Ted.
Mark Gibson, whose house sold in the midst of the pandemic after being on the market with another brokerage for over a year, was ecstatic that Luxury Lake Oconee sold it after three weeks. “The team puts you in the passenger seat as they drive the process, they have the map and know the way to get it done! Each member of the team is hyper-focused on ensuring the process is seamless to busy professional lives and schedules. The marketing and communication plan is stellar and solid, results-driven. I have bought and sold real estate over two dozen times in my military career and Luxury Lake Oconee team is second to none,” said Mark.
Luxury Lake Oconee Real Estate Group believes that technology and marketing play a pivotal role in today’s real estate environment. “As the market, technology, and the needs of our clients change, it is imperative that we evolve to serve the change,” stated Ted. “But nothing can replace dedicated, personal, and professional service that we provide to our clients,” he added.
Luxury Lake Oconee Real Estate prides itself on going above and beyond when they list properties, and that includes actively reaching buyers through its many platforms. “We serve our listings. We are usually present at showing appointments to help sell the property. We don’t just leave a lockbox at the front door and track access through our phones,” stated Riezl.
The migration to our community will continue and so will the demand for knowledgeable, local Realtors®. Luxury Lake Oconee Real Estate Group offers over 40 years of combined real estate experience and a thorough knowledge of the inventory to assist buyers and sellers with their real estate needs.
