Doesn’t it feel good knowing you checked an item off your to-do list by giving it your best effort or tackling a problem with the best solutions?
For the realtors out there, we at Ohio Basement Authority can give you that feeling every time you and your clients choose us to repair and protect their homes. That’s because we’ve got the right people and the right solutions, and we’ll make sure you and your clients have the right experience.
For almost 10 years, Ohio Basement Authority has been helping homeowners create safer and healthier living environments. We’ve always assisted realtors, as well as home buyers and sellers, but in recent years we’ve really homed in what we have to offer these customers.
Thus, Fix It to List It was born. Our Fix It to List It program is specifically designed for realtors and real estate transactions. If your clients are buying or selling a house, you can rest easier knowing we’ll provide the best solutions and service!
External Marketing Coordinator Jacalyn Brown has been a true champion for the Fix It to List It program. She networks with many realtors, attends various realty association meetings, and frequently discusses the program to keep it top of mind with realtors.
“We have a dependable company that they can call,” Jacalyn said. “We’re more patient knowing it’s a real estate transaction. We have a designated real estate inspector to be flexible with scheduling, and we’re willing to work with anyone – the buyer, seller, home inspector, engineer, and realtor.”
Realtor Craig Lee with Art Lee Realty Inc. knows he can count on Ohio Basement Authority for his clients’ waterproofing, foundation and crawl space repair needs.
“Having a partner like Ohio Basement Authority and working with the people there makes my job easier and more enjoyable,” he said. “They show up on time, the inspector is competent, and they’ve got great crews. The guys are friendly and neat, they provide great service, and go over and above what is required. It’s incredible.”
Partnering with a realtor like Craig is a perfect fit in many ways. Craig comes from the school of treating everyone in the same fair and honest manner, and he has a passion for helping people. (Does that sound familiar? It’s the Ohio Basement Authority way!)
“We’re thorough and trustworthy, and we’re there to genuinely help and prevent future problems,” Jacalyn added. “Things like water and structural problems can prevent home buying, but with us, we can get in there quickly with a contract and make it a seamless process.”
Working with Ohio Basement Authority, Craig has grown familiar with some telltale signs of needed repairs.
“I love looking at a home after a hard rain. It reveals so much, good and bad,” he said. “Whether it’s water seepage or cracks in the walls, you see it and say, ‘hey, we need to have someone look at this.’
“What’s cool is OBA doesn’t say, ‘we have to sell them this big product,’” he continued. “Sometimes it’s just a maintenance issue and an easy fix. The clients like the openness and frankness from the inspector, and they appreciate him coming in and not trying to upsell them. You’ve got a customer for life that way.”
If you find yourself dealing with a real estate transaction in need of repairs, don’t hesitate to contact us! We look forward to working with you!
