                                FIRM FOUNDATIONS REALTY

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'. We can do this

simple or get very detailed. You decide. :-)

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 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.zillow.com,

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 where 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 Managing Brokers and Brokers are members of the NAR, and only those whoare, 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 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.

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.
