Real estate is local. That’s why it’s important to select a real estate agency that understands and is invested in the local community, like Medina’s M.C. Real Estate.
The family and locally-owned real estate agency has been a fixture in the area for the last 20 years. Started in 1992 by Michael and Nancy Marquard, M.C. Real Estate was founded on the principles of providing top-notch real estate services based on knowledge, experience and results.
In 2011, the company began transferring the operations and ownership to sons, Matt and Brandon. With a commitment to its clients in mind, the company has moved forward and expanded the solid foundation that has been built since the company’s inception. Michael still serves as a full-time real estate broker and adviser, while Nancy is the company’s chief financial officer.
“We are proud to have a very loyal client base who values our services and commitment to serving their needs. We are building a strong foundation and have plans to expand our operations to serve our clientele in other locations, without any interruption of services to our home base in Medina County. It is an exciting time for our clients and our organization,” said President Brandon Marquard.
As most successful business owners will tell you, the key to providing great service is hiring great people. M.C. Real Estate remains committed to adding and retaining key Realtors who bring a history and desire to keep strong roots in both their careers and the community. In 2011, the company welcomed three new agents and has added one more in 2012, with plans to add additional agents before the year’s end.
“The people who work here are the key to this company. We are very particular about who joins our firm and we work hard to give them the tools they need to provide a level of service to their clients that is unmatched at other agencies,” said Chief Executive Officer Matt Marquard.
In addition, the promotion of long-time area Realtor Rick Stallard to the management team as director of property management further expanded the company’s ability to provide alternative residential and commercial real estate services. The company is currently one of the largest providers of comprehensive property management services in Medina County.
On top of serving clients, the company also plays an active role in the local real estate community. Brandon serves as the president of the Medina County Board of Realtors and Matt currently serves as a Director. Rick formerly served two terms as president and was recently recognized as the Realtor of the Year, while M.C. Real Estate agent Leslie Burns was named Rookie of the Year. In addition to the local honors, Rick went on to be named as the Realtor of the Year by the Ohio Association of Realtors, the first member in the history of the Medina County Board of Realtors to receive that honor.
“We are invested in our clients and in our communities. Our involvement in the area and the local communities is what allows us to be the best local Realtors possible,” Matt said.
Overall, M.C. Real Estate’s dedication to its clients and the local community, as well as its experienced staff, allows the company to provide a truly comprehensive service to each and every client.
Serving the real estate spectrum
With an experienced and knowledgeable staff, M.C. Real Estate is able to serve a wide variety of clients, from residential to commercial.
Clients looking to sell their homes can rest assured knowing that they are in qualified, capable hands. M.C. Real Estate works with each homeowner to create an individualized marketing plan that will get each home sold quickly and for the best price.
“There is no one-size-fits-all plan for selling homes. Each home and property is unique and requires its own marketing strategy. Every home or property, though, is marketed online with photos and its own description … within a few hours those listings appear on multiple real estate Web sites,” Matt said.
If you’re in the market to purchase a home or residential lot or to begin building your dream home, M.C. Real Estate can help you in your search.
“Purchasing a home is often the largest financial transaction you’ll ever make. We understand the importance of finding a home or property that meets your needs. We want our clients to be happy and satisfied with their purchase,” Matt said.
Realtors can also assist developers in finding land tracts or commercial businesses looking to relocate.
Regardless of whether you’re buying or selling, a first-time home buyer or a commercial developer, the Realtors at M.C. Real Estate are committed to their clients and working collaboratively throughout the entire process and even afterward.
“Accessibility and communication are key to a smooth experience and our Realtors understand this. They make a point to get to know their clients so that they can best serve their needs. Regardless of the day or time, they are always just a phone call away. Our goal is to make every client a client for life,” Brandon said.
Full service property management
Over the last 15 years, M.C. Real Estate’s property management services have grown exponentially and the company is now one of the area’s leading providers.
“It was a fairly progressive idea 15 years ago to have property management services. The division has grown substantially from a small piece of the company to an expanding portion of our business and it continues to grow,” Matt said.
Property owners and landlords can take a step back from the day-to-day hassles and let M.C. Real Estate take care of everything, from finding qualified tenants, to performing building maintenance and collecting monthly rent payments. In addition, the company markets available rentals, ensuring that vacancies are filled quickly.
The company offers property management services for a wide variety of residential rentals, from single-family homes to multi-tenant buildings.
Finally, with Rick, an experienced Realtor, leading the property management division, landlords wishing to sell their income property will have the opportunity to continue working with the same trusted face who will provide excellent service throughout the property management term.
