Local real estate agency announces new downtown Boulder offices and a new independent agency approach to personal service.
At the same time, the agency is re-organizing into an independent, boutique agency designed to provide a high level of personalized service to real estate buyers and sellers.
“We are taking the knowledge, skills and principles from our decades of experience in Front Range real estate and transforming our team into an independent agency,” says Neil Kearney, owner. “Real estate is a personal experience, and we know that we can serve our clients best by providing personalized service. We like to describe it as a ‘high touch, high tech, five-star customer experience.”
Kearney Realty’s team consists of Neil Kearney, managing broker/owner, Broker Associates Jo Kearney, Kathleen Winegardner, Jordan Lane-Miller and Kristy Kearney as office manager.
Jo Kearney, Neil’s mother, has been a top-producing Realtor in Boulder County for 27 years. Jo is known for her friendly, ethical and dedicated service and problem solving. Most of her clients are repeat and referrals, which is a testament to the relationships she has developed over the years.
“We bring a real mindset of service to work everyday,” Neil Kearney explains. “We’re not focused on making that one big sale, but rather on developing long-term relationships with our clients. When we provide great service, we know the rest will take care of itself. People today have access to plenty of information on properties for sale, for instance. Our job is to provide the expertise that helps our clients make good decisions based on that information. Each of our full time associates is empowered and engaged to give top quality service based on impeccable ethics, consistent systems, professional development and cutting edge tools.”
“We’re a small agency with a big handle on technology, using all of the most current methods and tools that larger companies employ and bringing great efficiencies to every transaction. As a seller, you want to ensure that your property is marketed in the most effective ways possible. And as a buyer, you want a complete picture of values, neighborhoods, and anything that might impact the desirability of a property. In the end, it’s still about our personal understanding of your needs and how to solve them.”
As real estate professionals dedicated to the highest standards in the industry, the Kearneys continue to be active in the Boulder Area Realtor Association. Jo serves on the ethics committee and was recently named for a third year in a row as a 5-Star Realtor with 5280 Magazine. Neil has served on the BARA board of directors and is the current chairman of IRES, the regional MLS system.
Neil Kearney says that local real estate is poised for a significant recovery as the overall economy improves. “I have been in the real estate business for over 20 years, and have been tracking the market for most of that time. I publish The Kearney Report and have been blogging about Boulder County real estate since 2006. All signs indicate that we are finally again on the up cycle and we are set for a strong run locally, in terms of sales and appreciation. Jobs are coming back and consumer confidence is high.”
“Lenders are ready for a higher level of participation, too. They have adjusted back from when just about anybody could get a loan, and that’s good. These better lending standards will help lenders and buyers avoid problems later down the road.”
Kearney Realty has plans for growth over time by adding local Realtors whose business practices match their core values of integrity, service, caring, community and innovation.
