“We are always striving to improve our business, systems, marketing and customer service for our clients,” said Chairman and CEO Mark Spain. “Sometimes, this involves a better way to do business or creating new opportunities and services for clients. One such option is for home sellers and it’s called the Guaranteed Offer.”

Spain explained the Guaranteed Offer has been ideal for some home sellers. If a home meets certain requirements, this program will extend an offer. If the sellers accept, they have just sold their home without ever having to formally list it on the market. Sellers then avoid having to be ready for repeated showings, the hassle of open houses and an unknown waiting period before receiving an offer.
