Thanks for taking the time to learn more about our team and how we can work together to meet your real estate needs. My name is Debra Wilson and my husband Jeff and I are part of the award winning Wilson Team. We have sold hundreds of homes in the Indianapolis area working with some of the nicest people we have ever met. With over 30 years of combined experience in Real Estate, we have one of the broadest backgrounds of any Realtor Team around. Our combined backgrounds include Appraising, New Home Sales, Engineering, Construction, Marketing, Real Estate Investing, House Flipping, Home Staging, and we possess General Contractor Grade Skills to boot giving us unique insight to many Buyer and Seller questions. We've purchased bank owned homes, we own rental properties, and we've bought and sold several homes of our own so we understand where most Buyers and Sellers are coming from. We also have two kids who have attended local schools, one of them currently enrolled, and we know how important that can be to many Buyers.
We have tackled just about every aspect of residential real estate, and we learn from our experiences so that we can share with our clients. We understand property taxes, mortgages, and we are certified in corporate relocation. We have lived in 8 States combined, so we know what it is like to be relocated. We are actively involved in the inspection process and work directly with contractors to resolve issues the right way. If that's the kind of experienced Realtor you are looking for, give us a call. A home purchase or sale is a big deal. Why not use and experienced Realtor Team to mitigate your risk?
At least half of our clients come from referrals. We take that as the highest compliment. In our view, if you can make someone happy enough to refer others, that means you are doing something right. As a husband and wife team, we both work closely with each and every client. From Listing or Home Shopping all the way through to Closing, we have you covered. With two full time experienced agents at your disposal, your life as a Buyer or Seller will be much easier. You won't be left dealing with an assistant with our team, you'll be dealing with decision makers who can resolve issues quickly. With our team, you will always get the attention you deserve.
Seller Services - We have been top producers in the Northern Indianapolis Area for over a decade. Because we are so broad in our background and expertise, we are very accurate in predicting sales price and knowing what must be done to move houses. We actively help our Sellers get their homes ready for the market and we can help them identify potential inspection related issues that could jeapordize the deal. We know that the cheapest way to address inspection items is to address them prior to inspections, and more importantly, before we end up getting help from the Buyer in choosing who will perform the repairs. We also know how to address Buyer objections ahead of time to help secure a deal.
Buyer Services - For Buyers we can help from the get go. We can help get you pre-approved and figure out what you can afford, where you want to be, and help you find the type of house you desire. On resales we can help you spot potential problems early on so we can prepare the Seller during negotiations, rather than risk the deal falling through later on in the process. If you are looking for new construction, our experience working for the builders aids us in how to best negotiate with that type of Seller. We often know what a builder will and will not do, and advise accordingly. Our experience in flipping and renovating can help set your expectations on fixer uppers. Our background in construction and engineering makes it easier to evaluate a proposed renovation plans. Finally, since we have personally bought Bank Owned Homes, we are very familiar with that process and can help determine if that is the right way to go for you. We don't just help Buy and Sell homes, we study the market. We have created a database of common issues and know how to resolve them effectively. We know what contractors to call to get the best work done for the money, and we can help advise you on what repairs are really necessary and what are not, whether that is during inspection or preparing to sell. We are linked with various mortgage brokers that can help finance non-conforming buyers. This can be helpful whether or not we actually represent the Buyer or the Seller.
Relocation Services - If you are relocating with a relocation company, we are very familiar with that process and we know what the relocation companies expect from you, from us, and from the Buyer. We know there is a lot of additional paperwork that is required when purchasing a relocation controlled asset, and we know Relocation Companies don't always respond well to timelines. They have their own way of doing things and we know how to set the Buyer's expectations so we don't lose them along the way. What we offer is years of experience, awesome service, professionalism, directness, and a proven track record. If a problem arises, chances are we have seen it several times before. If not, we have the skills and patience to address it in the best possible manner. You won't feel that you are alone when you work with our team.
While attending college in Florida, I worked as a residential real estate appraiser. Later on I sold multi-million dollar homes near Orlando Florida working for a Luxury Custom Home Community. I've worked for several national and local builders in the local Indianapolis area including Pulte Homes, Estridge, and Centex Homes. I worked for a national building supplier, Lumberman's as a sales rep. I was the first Realtor in the Indianapolis area to become an Accredited Staging Professional in 2005. I am Relocation certified with all major Relocation companies. I've sold over $200 million in real estate, and have sold several hundred homes in the Northern Indianapolis area. Debra Wilson
Besides Real Estate, I have a background in Electrical/Software/Systems engineering, Construction, Graphic Arts Design, and Marketing. I've been self employed for 20 years. I grew up on a mid sized farm, where I learned most of the trade skills used in general contracting. I worked in the construction industry while attending college. I've worked for most of the large defense contractors either directly or as a subcontractor. These included General Dynamics, Hughes Aircraft, Raytheon, Draper Laboratories, and the Naval Air Warfare Center. I owned my own engineering company, Competititve Edge Technology Inc., for 9 years prior to starting my Real Estate career in 2006. I've been selling homes in Indianapolis for over 11 years.
We have won lots of Broker awards for high volume sales and customers satisfaction over the years. In addition, we have accepted awards from the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis, as well as awards from the Indianapolis Business Journal. The greatest rewards we get though, is repeat business or a referral from a past client. That is what makes long hours and hard work worth it! We love helping people, and we would love the opportunity to help you!
