Your Future is my Business

Working for the past 6 years as a Realtor within  Newfoundland, Holly Rideout has raised the bar once again!  With recently acquiring her Broker’s license and opening Rideout Realty, Holly specializes in the St. Johns marketplace. Whether you are an Investor or a first time home buyer, you can be sure Holly will assist you with all aspects of the transaction!  Holly’s knowledge of the Condominium market is quickly becoming her specialty. Working with investors acquiring properties for new multi unit developments from start up stage to selling the units, Holly knows all aspects of the condominium market . With the recent opening of her own company, Rideout Realty, Holly can concentrate on this growing real estate sector in St Johns.

Holly states getting to this point in my career was not always easy! It takes a lot of hard work, dedication to the job, perseverance and persistence, and this year I believe it finally paid of.   

Our business is based solely on R and R, Repeat and Referral! As a co- worker and good friend (Sally Bruce) quotes; a lot of your work comes from referrals and that is the “highest “compliment that can be paid to a Realtor. The reason Holly gets referrals is because she does not mind going that extra mile for the client.  You do the research, you give the client choices and you direct them to the “best” purchase for them. That means the best buy for the client ,not the best sale for the realtor!  

Holly states the most important factor in real estate to be successful, you cannot do it by yourself, and you need a team of key players around you. Holly has taken the time to build this network / team that includes mortgage brokers to address financial needs and prequalify clients, home inspectors who have the latest in technology, contractors to call upon when needed, Lawyers to handle the legalities of any transaction, so whatever the clients needs are it is only a matter of calling one of these contacts and the clients needs are met.  That’s what it is about putting the clients needs first, being a full service, full time agent.

For me getting into real estate was a leap of faith, says Holly , after 18 years working within the travel industry , she was faced with the choice do what you always did or change and try something different.  Holly states that there is no mystery to being successful in real estate, it takes a lot of hard work, days and nights in front of the computer, working 24/ 7.  This business is face to face , one on one , and people  have to trust and like you to invite you into there homes.  Its personal and a lot of times your customers become your friends.   I must admit that there were times when I felt like giving up! However having a mentor in the business, friends who knew me and knew the business well talked me into sticking with it and for once I listened.

Being honest with the client
Complete honesty with the client will earn you rewards and respect.

I have learned that if I am honest with the client – if I take the time to understand what they want what they expect and what they realistically can get then it’s going to be a win win for the client and for me. That’s the kind of forthright approach to business that is earning holly a reputation in the real estate marketplace here.

Condominium Projects

We all have reason to hesitate on occasion and to think twice. While Holly Rideout has the wisdom to understand this, she does not let it slow her down. This is why she has been able to bring together investors , contractors and her own real estate savvy to develop condominium projects- notably three multi unit buildings at well situated Churchill Square, St Johns .  Projects of this nature are the big League in this marketplace and why she has earned her reputation within the field.

Quote from Coldwell Banker pro co Office Manager Len King regarding holly; she is energetic, hardworking, caring and service oriented and have the clients best interest at heart.

Congratulations Holly, you earned it!
