OLD FASHIONED ETHICS, NEW SCHOOL WAYS.
New Home & REO Specialist. CalBRE: 01747510
At age a young age, Ms. Savage bought her first home, and at 21 found her first investment property. Realizing the financial and personal benefits of home ownership, she delved wholeheartedly into the real estate business while continuing to invest.
Ms. Savage’s early experience helped her develop a keen instinct for real estate trends. By becoming short sale certified and guiding hundreds of clients through these transactions, she learned every in-and-out of working with bank-owned properties and banks.
Now, as Broker of Steinbeck Real Estate, Inc., Ms. Savage leads a team of proactive, quality-driven agents. All agents live locally and work for the firm full-time. “I say every two weeks the market changes, that’s why you need someone full-time,” says Ms. Savage. “Banks change guidelines, lenders change guidelines, and rates fluctuate.”
To ensure that her company serves clients expertly and seamlessly in a competitive, ever-changing market, Ms. Savage converted Steinbeck Real Estate, Inc. into a paperless office, wherein each agent conducts real estate transactions electronically. The paperless innovation gives clients the ability to sign offers on the spot after viewing a home. The technology saves both agents and clients valuable time and safeguards their files.
Growing up in an involved, community-oriented family led Ms. Savage herself to embrace community action and leadership. She enjoys event planning and fundraising for groups such as the Monterey County Young Professionals and the Rotary Club of Salinas.
She has continually educated herself and grown into a community leader in real estate, earning countless certifications and awards, most recently Top 100 Overall Agents for Monterey County (2012) and Top 10 Agents in Salinas (2012).
