Reasons To Consider The Stones Real Estate Firm
30+ YEARS OF COMBINED EXPERIENCE (DECADES AS REALTORS): Now more than ever experience counts.

We have helped 1000s of clients throughout the years and have sold 100s of millions in property. Couple this with stellar reviews and trusted local knowledge, we are hard to ignore when searching for a real estate company to hire. Just give us a call for a FREE, no pressure and no obligation consultation.
SMALL BROKERAGE OR A BIG BOX COMPANY (SPECIALIZED SERVICE ON YOUR TERMS): One of the biggest misconceptions in our industry today is that large national firms can provide better marketing and exposure for your home than smaller independent firms, unfortunately this is simply not true. Regardless of agency size, once your listing hits the MLS it's immediately syndicated to all MLS subscribed Realtors as well as the most popular real estate websites including Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia and so on. That's right, our listings are sent to the same sites and receive the same exposure as those larger brokerages. The biggest difference is smaller firms actually have more flexibility in how and where they can market your home. We are not bound by office protocols or corporate structure. We have the freedom to do what's best for each of our clients based on their individual needs and are able to do what it takes to secure the right buyer for their home.
OWNED AND OPERATED BY LOCALS (WE ARE TRUE COMMUNITY EXPERTS): When selling a home we know the choice of real estate companies are many, but we feel we have a distinct advantage over other brokerages and their Realtors. In addition to our decades of experience and impressive sales stats, we are locals who not only work in the area, but we live here as well. This allows us to know every aspect of our market and what living here is all about. We know each neighborhood, features of each community, individual school zones, nearby amenities and so on. Buyers and sellers are looking for agents who can give them firsthand knowledge and insight into the local area. As locals...that's what we do!
PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY (ONLY THE BEST FOR OUR CLIENTS): We invest in each of our client’s listings by hiring the best professional photographers to ensure the home is presented in the most attractive manner possible. Realtors are not photographers and a home should never be photographed using a cell phone. Each listing is competing with many other homes on the market. Our professional photographers will make sure your property stands out from the crowd!
DRONE AERIALS (MAKING A DRAMATIC IMPACT): We use dramatic drone aerials to not only showcase your home’s surroundings, but to capture the attention of online buyers. If you have a large lot, lakefront setting, preserve view or any other unique selling features, drone aerials help to highlight these valuable assets. For some listings, ground-based photography is simply not enough to appreciate what is being offered. We go the extra step by including the aerial perspective so buyers can see the properties full value..
MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICE (MAXIMUM EXPOSURE FOR YOUR HOME): Your home is immediately listed on the Multiple Listing Service which updates a daily catalog of homes for sale through its member brokers and an online computer network. These MLS listings are available to its members, with photos and descriptions of all listed properties. We personally submit high-quality photos and the descriptive elements of your home to ensure that you have the best possible representation on the MLS.
INTERNET EXPOSURE (LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY): In addition to the MLS listing, your home is syndicated to many different real estate websites that further increases its exposure. Your home will be posted on the world’s most visited real estate websites both locally and globally including Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia and many more. Even large national real estate brokerages will grab our listings so they can put them on their sites. Everyone will see your listing when you list with us!
HIGH TRAFFIC WEBSITE (1000s OF MONTHLY VISITORS): We’ll feature your home on our personal website, TheStonesRealEstateFirm.com. This website is user-friendly, mobile responsive and engineered to capture buyers from around the world. With thousands of monthly visitors and millions of impressions, TheStonesRealEstateFirm.com is considered to be one of the area’s most popular and visited real estate websites. Our website also includes advanced and easy to use search tools including Active Maps, Lifestyle Searches, Direct-to-MLS updates and automatic email notifications. These tools keep buyers coming back.
SOCIAL MEDIA (FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, TWITTER): After making your listing live on MLS we will start our social media campaign to help spread the word about your property being for sale. We utilize Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media outlets to gain maximum exposure. With thousands of social media followers, our clients can be confident that we are pushing their property to everyone in our sphere.
GOOGLE "5 STAR" REVIEWS (COMPARE REVIEWS TO MAKE THE BEST DECISION): Our 5 Star Google reviews highlight our commitment to great customer service and provides a sense of comfort for those searching for a reputable and active Realtor to do business with. It's always a good idea to see reviews before hiring your next Realtor.
