Kirk Westervelt, CDPE, SFR, Greenville, SC Realtor and short sale negotiator.
I work with a broad arrary of real estate clients, including buyers, sellers and investors throughout the Greater Greenville, SC region. One of my specialties is with relocation efforts for executives and their families. I've enjoyed working with clients who were relocating to the Greenville, SC region because of their careers which have had ties to Michelin, BMW, ICAR (International Center for Automotive Research), Furman University and Clemson University to name just a few. Having moved to Greenville from Orange County, CA, I understand everything that is involved in the process of relocating and I can clearly empathize with my clients and the stress they endure as part of the process of relocating. I help my clients understand what different areas of town have to offer in terms of the schools, shopping, restaurants, golfing, tennis, freeway access, property taxes, association dues, etc. I also help my clients who live in the Greenville or Simpsonville region with a special discount listing program which saves them money while getting top dollar for the sale of their existing home, as part of the process of utilizing my services to help them move up to a more expensive home in the region. While many of my clients are buying or selling homes in the $300k, $400k, $500k and up range, I also have a great level of expertise in assisting clients who are first time home buyers, typically seeking homes in the $125k to $250k range. I've worked diligently with real estate investors who were seeking short sales, REO, and foreclosures for the purposes of rehabbing and flipping the real estate, or renting or leasing out the property as landlords, for monthly cash flow. The regions I typically work in include Greenville, Simpsonville, Fountain Inn, Greer, Traveler's Rest, Mauldin, and other areas throughout the Greater Greenville region. One of the services I provide is to pre-screen other realtors for my clients who may be leaving the immediate area and thus I can take out much of the guess work for clients who would like to be referred to a quality realtor in the area they are moving to. My clients come to trust in me as being their overall real estate consultant. It's all about honesty, integrity, enthusiasm, and quality service! I guess one of my greatest areas of expertise is something that comes completely naturally for me, and that is the ability to build rapport with people. Most people seem to feel very comfortable speaking with me, and this usually occurs fairly quickly. I guess this a natural part of who I am, because I'm honest with people and I show a sincere interest in my client's wants and needs and I never lose sight of that. It's not about me, it's about you and your goals and needs! Call me today! It would be my pleasure to provide you with an exceptional level of service as your Realtor! Call Kirk at: (864) 451-2402.
