Firm Foundations Realty is a full service real estate office. We represent buyers and sellers in their real estate transactions.

We can be your Buyer Agent, Seller Agent, or both at the same time, making us a Dual Agent.

We offer a service called 'Redesigning YOUR Home to Sell'.

Our office deals in residential (multi-family and single family dwellings), buildings, farm land, and vacant lots.

We do a Market Analysis to determine the value of the property you are selling or the one you are buying. A Market Analysis is very similar to an appraisal, it just isn't put on the same forms.

We belong to the Multiple Listing Service that is structured under Capital Area Association of Realtors in Springfield, Illinois. This service enables us to give more exposure to your property, provides us with all legal forms needed for accurate paperwork, and keeps us abreast of the latest news and changes in Real Estate. Other agents who belong to this service can get into the MLS database and search for properties that meet their client's criteria and set up showing appointments.

It allows your listing to automatically go on nationwide websites including (but not limited to): www.realtor.com, www.homescape.com, www.edgeio.com, www.hotpads.com, www.clrsearch.com, www.yahoo.com, www.vast.com, www.propsmart.com, and hundreds more sites.

Buyers can find your property from anywhere in the USA or abroad.

Our office belongs to the Illinois Association of Realtors (IAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR). These organizations, including our local MLS, hold us to a strict Code of Ethics.

As a home seller or home seeker, you should know that the term REALTOR® identifies a licensed professional in real estate who is a member of National Association of Realtors.

Not all licensed real estate brokers and sales persons are members of the NAR, and only those are, can identify themselves as REALTORS®.

REALTORS® conduct their business and activities in accordance with a strict Code of Ethics. Anyone who does not belong to the NAR can only be called an Agent or a Salesperson.

Capital Area Association of Realtors has a website that is easily accessed at www.seehouses.com where you can look for properties for sale and get lots of other information.

They also have www.seebuildings.com where you can search for commercial properties.

REMEMBER:I'm always looking for a few good agents who are willing to work from home. Must have good morals, ethics, and be self starters.
