For our Purchasing Clients: we make sure you have access to EVERY home (not just those we list, or the three or four that we think you might like); and we will never pressure you.
For our Selling Clients: we market the heck out of your home; we give you updates on what we've done to sell your property every week along with feedback and activity on the home; we can also lease your property should it fail to sell--seamlessly. Finally, if you're ever unhappy with us, or your circumstances change, you can cancel our agreement.

The holiday season is here! No matter if you celebrate Christmas
"We had checked around with other companies before deciding to go with Real Estate Market Place, we didn’t get the same comfortable feeling with the others as we got with TREMP. They listened to our needs and their willingness to meet us promptly and treated us like serious buyers and not window shoppers. We always felt like we were number 1. Chip gave up some of his family time during the holidays to work with us and meant a lot; we were able to find a home quicker because of that. The whole purchase went smoothly which was very important to us as well. They were very patient and took time to answer all of our questions.
We love your company’s philosophy of having experts in each area of the process without feeling like we were being passed around or rushed by the hand off. We were most impressed by the ease of the entire process and exceed our expectations immensely. If the opportunity arises I would not hesitate to use TREMP again.
