Kelley Knitz, a real estate broker and owner of Re/Max Alliance Premier, says she offers a full-service firm for buyers and sellers in her business which recently moved from downtown Toledo to 3550 Briarfield in Maumee.
One of seven daughters who each put themselves through college, Knitz states she has learned the importance of teams at an early age. It is this experience that was instrumental in inspiring her to open her own business in 2003 and in developing her model of bringing together experts in various facets of the real estate field to sell homes.
Knitz says, “We are not your ordinary brokerage.” Full service is available for home buyers and sellers with real estate professionals specializing in each unique neighborhood in Lucas and Wood counties, complete auction services, assistance through foreclosure and short sales, for sale by owner programs, management of lease options, land contracts and rentals, financing and mortgages and marketing programs.
Re/Max Alliance Premier will offer a number of workshops to coincide with an open house to be held Saturday, November 15 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm.
The workshops are: 2:30—Strategies for selling in a tough market; 3:00—Auction versus traditional sale; 3:30—Short sale versus foreclosure; 4:00--How to buy a foreclosed home.
Knitz has been a real estate professional for 19 years. She specializes in the Eastern suburban market and lives in rural Perrysburg.
