With over 17 years of combined experience, Lucy and Alexander Salazar, Century 21 M&M Realtors serving the Madera area, are committed to the best possible service and a strong work ethic.
Service means a lot of things to this team and it always starts with listening. Alex Salazar says, “I take the time to listen to my clients wants and needs before and after a transaction.” During the first meeting, this team listens, in an effort to understand what it is that the motivates the client;
- Who are you, are you all about family, or do you love to entertain?
- What are you looking for in a home, how much room, what style?
- When are you looking to make this move? No rush…or the baby is due next week?
- Where do you want to live? Close to schools, shopping, recreation, etc.?
- Why are you deciding to purchase now? Affordability, opportunity, or it’s time!
Education is also important to this team which is why they are Short Sale Certified Negotiators.
Lucy Salazar says, “We go the extra mile to make it work for our clients. We are there from the beginning of the transaction and after it closes.”
Between them Lucy and Alexander have experience in a variety of real estate transactions;
Short Sales- A sale of real estate in which the sale proceeds fall short of the balance owed on the property's loan.
Loan Modifications- A permanent change in one or more of the terms of a mortgagor's loan, allows the loan to be reinstated, and results in a payment the mortgagor can afford.
Bank owned foreclosures (REOs)- A class of property owned by a lender, typically a bank, after an unsuccessful sale at a foreclosure auction.
Multi-Units– Apartments, duplexes, four-plexes, etc.
Commercial Sales– Includes office buildings, industrial property, medical centers, hotels, malls, retail stores, shopping centers, farm land, multifamily housing buildings, warehouses, garages, and industrial properties
Both Lucy and Alex make it a priority to know the current market and local area real estate. This means that they keep up with current real estate laws and government incentives. They know what REO banks and short sale banks are looking for. And they also make sure that their clients have an understanding of the transaction process, from start to finish… what to expect and why.
