Carl was a guy who had a mid-level management position, three kids and a wife who stayed home with the kids. Due to the fact that his wife had a sister in Jefferson City, they started toying with the idea of moving to the area. The job prospects were right at the level Carl needed in Columbia and his skills were in demand. Given the fact that Carl and his family were considering a move from the East Coast, the process would not be an easy one. The family found a nice home in an attractive neighborhood online and considered putting in an offer.

Clients like Carl and his family are the ideal homebuyers for Iron Gate Real Estate. We will match you up with an agent who is an expert in relocations and the delicate process it can become. Our agents are specially trained to handle transactions from out of state and to make you feel confident when dealing with details that may be 100 miles (or more) away. The most important thing to us is making you feel comfortable during the process, stressing the fact that your agent is trustworthy and will deliver the best results, regardless of where you are presently located.

Empty Nesters

Carol and James were recently  hit with a shock, as their youngest child finally graduated from high school. It is always something you can see coming as a parent, but when it finally gets there, it is much more of a change than expected. At this point, they began thinking of upgrading their home to a more exclusive neighborhood with many more amenities. The thought of a patio home in a planned community where there are maintenance teams to take care of the yard work and the pool is open for happy hour every day, really appealed to them.

Carol and James are ideal clients for Iron Gate Real Estate and if you are in the same position we would love to speak with you. Empty nesters have different needs than your average homebuyer and we have worked with thousands of couples in the same situation, and know how to deal with the unique issues of getting them in a home they will love. It begins with assessing the situation and determining the best course of action for our clients. Our exceptional team of realtors is here for the empty nesters every step of the way.

It’s A Girl.. And a Boy!

Andrew and Jordan were super excited to head to their first ultrasound, getting their first glimpse of the heartbeat. As the doctor began to search around for the tiny little person inside, the heartbeat filled the speakers and an overwhelming excitement filled Andrew and Jordan. They knew that their daughters would be super excited to be big sisters and the work they had done on their two bedroom home would make it easier with the new baby. “Just a second,” the doctor said as a second heartbeat clearly came through the speaker. “It looks like you are having twins” he beamed. Their excitement turned to panic just as the third heartbeat became clearly audible. “Well, what do you know,” the doctor chuckled, “triplets!” Andrew and Jordan could barely breathe.

This family clearly will need more than a two bedroom… and fast.
