Reds Property Management has helped me immensely with navigating the real estate market within Cleveland as a first timer. We have an investment property in Shaker Heights that we have to manage from afar. Because of this it is very important that I have a property manager whom I can trust and who keeps me in the know. Ed and Kim have always been on hand when I have called and have gone out of their way to help with my queries and keep me apprised of any developments. They found a tenant for me within days of signing up, where others had taken months. I have found both Ed and Kim approachable and timely on following up on my requests. I’ve used other agents in Cleveland before I found Reds, but Reds are by far the best in my experience. I would recommend them to anyone seeking to invest in the Cleveland market. Lincoln

I've been working with IIP Management for 4+ years and they've handled dozens of investment properties. They are great, even though we have some ups and downs - but they work hard to remedy all the headaches that come with owning investment real estate...

I highly recommend Nick! Nick helped us not only buy our house, but also sell it. He had great advice on both sides, helping us find the perfect house for our budget & then promptly getting us ready to sell when we had to quickly relocate. He helped us negotiate a great price for the house that fit our financial situation and then helped us sell our house within 1 day of it hitting the market. Nick is very knowledgeable and had no problem answering the numerous questions I had. He wasn’t also incredibly accommodating to our schedule and was always flexible with showings and again with our closing. Anyone that picks Nick as their realtor is in great hands. Highly highly recommended!!

Shirley has managed my property since she started her company. She is phenomenal to work with and addresses my tenants issues appropriately. The best part about working with Pikus real estate is that Shirley really cares about her clients and it is evidenced by the respect she shows both property owners and tenants.

About

I've been doing this for 27 years! I have plenty of recommendations from past clients and stellar reviews as well. So far this year I'm already having my best year ever and have been selling a property every other week totaling over $2.100,000 so far this year. I work by myself and do not pawn everything down to a team of minimum wage assistants. I maintain low overhead and can tailor my own commissions that are personally suited to each individual seller. I also do staging, property management and investment property with lots of expertise in all of these. I just ask to be interviewed to demonstrate what I can do for you.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a real estate agent do?

Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

  • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
  • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
  • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
  • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
  • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
  • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
  • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
  • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
  • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
  • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

What should you look for in a real estate agent?

When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

What do real estate agents charge?

Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

  • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
  • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
  • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
  • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
