Why Choose Straley?

Our Good Reputation Matters…

A couple of years ago one of our clients told the story of how she decided to call
on our office to ask some questions about selling her home. It went something
like this…

“I was shopping at Good Earth Shoppe on Shannon Street and spotted a lawyer friend of mine checking out the supplement section. We exchanged some friendlies then I mentioned hubby and me were thinking of selling our property. She knew everyone in town so I asked her, ‘Who would you recommend as a local Realtor?

She placed some raw organic protein in her basket, looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘If I were buying or selling a property anywhere in Van Wert County, the only company I’d consider would be Straley Realty & Auctioneers. Period.

We hear these kinds of stories pretty regularly. It makes us proud of who we are — and the good reputation we’ve built over the past forty plus years.

Of course, the professionals who work here at Straley Realty & Auctioneers are fine people, take it seriously. But to work for Straley Realty & Auctioneers, it takes more than just a smile and know-how.

Some call it good “bedside manners”…

Buying or selling a home is a major transaction, with lots of moving parts. It all adds up, and sometimes it can get very emotional for buyers and sellers.

Legal issues need to be thoroughly researched. Contracts need to be clear and concise. Appraisals, inspections, title companies, escrow, mortgage lenders, packing & movers, perfect timing for closing, then move ins and outs and post-closing follow-up.

At Straley Realty & Auctioneers, you’re not just hiring an individual Realtor, you’re getting an entire team of seasoned and well-connected professionals who know how to tighten all the nuts and bolts of buying and selling property.

We organize your transaction to keep you fully informed every step of the way so you can sleep peacefully during the entire process.

We’re known as “Transition Experts”

Over the years we’ve been referred to as “transition experts”. What this really means is that we do our very best to help both buyers and sellers adjust to their new circumstances. Moving in or moving out definitely involves a transition, and we want that to be as seamless and welcoming as possible.

It’s not uncommon for a Straley Realtor® to be there on moving day, just to make sure all is going well and ask if there’s something we can do to give you a hand. You see, whether you’re coming or going, we consider you as a neighbor. To us, that means a commitment to be there during your big transition to a new life.

This is why you want to choose Straley Realty & Auctioneers to help you with your real estate transaction.
