Buy & Sell With Rhoades
Rhoades Real Estate has an established team of qualified real estate and auction professionals who can assist you at every step of the process in buying/selling a home, farm, or commercial property. All of our agents are local real estate experts who are familiar with the local market. We are a member of the Peoria Area Association of Realtors and participate in the Regional Multiple Listing Service (RMLS), working in cooperation with approximately 3,000 other local real estate professionals.
What a great time to consider selling your property! The housing and farm/recreational land inventory has been at historic lows for the past two years, driving prices up (over 15% in the past 2 years) and days on market down (37% since 2020).
Utilizing a brokerage/auction firm that is familiar with the local market is key to getting you top-dollar for your property! Our real estate professionals take the time to get to know you and your property and utilize both traditional and modern advertising strategies to attract qualified buyers.
Now, more than ever, working with a local real estate expert is key to finding your dream property! With the limited inventory over the past two years, many homes are selling within days, sometimes hours, of hitting the market.
Our real estate professionals have the local connections and resources to help get you into these new listings quickly, many times before they ever even hit the market!
Contact our office, or one of our agents directly, anytime you have a real estate question – we’d be more than happy to help.
It might be a little old-fashioned, but we at Rhoades Real Estate believe that we cannot truly be successful if we aren’t giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Because of that, we try to live by the “Golden Rule.” Over the years, tens of thousands of dollars have been put back to work throughout our surrounding communities. After all, our business is a people business – and we care about the people in our communities!
Why Choose Rhoades Real Estate?
At Rhoades Real Estate, our goal is to redefine the experience with a real estate company and agent. We know there are a lot of options when it comes to choosing who to work with to sell your home, farm, or commercial property. In fact, there are more than 70,000 licensed real estate brokers and salespeople in Illinois! And that’s why – up front – we want to give you our most basic reasons for why we’re the better choice.
You should choose Rhoades Real Estate because:
1. You’ll receive top-line customer service. It’s our #1 priority in what we do every day –
that is, to have a happy client when a transaction is closed. If, after your experience with us, you wouldn’t refer us to your family and friends, then we will have come up short.
2. We know the market. We work in a relatively small geographic area, and we are focused specialists in our area. If you need heart surgery do you go to a cardiac surgeon or a general practitioner? Of course, the surgeon! So why would you trust the sale of significant real estate assets to someone who isn’t a specialist in the area or field?
3. We work to get you more money. We don’t just throw your property on the MLS and hope for the best. We go to work for you. Each Rhoades Real Estate agent has extensive contacts within the communities we serve – and we work our contacts. We are members of the Regional MLS and we expose your real estate to thousands of other brokers through that affiliation. We also advertise in local and regional print media publications. And importantly, we have a distinctive presence on the Internet with our own proprietary website, as well as inclusion on numerous other websites (depending on the type of your property).
4. We are honest and trustworthy. No explanation needed – our reputation depends on it.
5. You will be treated with respect. There’s nothing more frustrating than a salesperson (of any kind) that treats you rudely or otherwise inappropriately. Respect is a basic part of a quality relationship – and we value our customer and client relationships!
6. WE COMMUNICATE! If we took a poll of what drives real estate consumers “crazy” about most real estate agents, we’d bet it would show the lack of communication between the agent and their client. How frustrating!?! We strive to keep you informed at every step through written updates, phone calls, and personal meetings. This includes delivering the facts – good, bad, or otherwise! And if you ever have a question, your agent (or an associate) will always be available. The bottom line is that we strive to offer our clients unparalleled service and a genuinely positive experience. We want your business – and we hope you’ll consider Rhoades Real Estate!
