Rhode Island Monthly is proud to showcase our second annual Professional Excellence in Real Estate honorees on the following pages. This special section was put together to provide our readers with advice, resources and a list of some of the leading professionals for buying or selling a home. We hope you consider utilizing one of these honorees for your real estate needs.

To create this list of winners, Rhode Island Monthly contracted nationally recognized DataJoe Research to facilitate a multifaceted research campaign comprised of online surveys, phone calls, and internet research. All real estate agents licensed by the state of Rhode Island were eligible. DataJoe’s proprietary scoring algorithm factored in 2019 sales and transaction volume, professional standing and peer nominations. DataJoe also surveyed over 5,000 area mortgage and title professionals and collected their feedback as an additional scoring factor. This list of Professional Excellence in Real Estate honorees represents approximately 5% of agents in Rhode Island that scored highest in the surveys. Agents do not and cannot pay to be included as part of this list. We recognize that there are many good real estate agents who are not represented on this list as it is only a sampling of the talented professionals in our area.

Attention all real estate agents!
Our Professional Excellence in Real Estate awards program recognizes those individuals named among the leading professionals in the field. Honorees are chosen based on several criteria ranging from home sales, feedback from professionals in related fields, professional standing, home buyers & sellers’ input, peer reviews and other data collected by a leading third-party survey company. Our survey partner will be sending out our 2021 survey this October, and we hope you will participate. While their database likely includes your information, we encourage you to go to rimonth.ly/REsurvey to add your information to ensure your participation.

If you need real estate services consider using one of the real estate agents below.

Dos and Don’ts for First-Time Homebuyers

The Dos of Financial Prep

“Check your credit score and learn how it affects financing.” — Arthur Chapman of William Raveis, raveis.com

“Price shop your mortgage for the best rate and fee structure.” — Michael Russo of RI Real Estate Services, 401sold.com

“Get pre-approved and understand monthly payments, fees, etc… Just because you qualify for a certain amount on paper may not mean that you are going to feel comfortable with the payments on the mortgage for that amount in the long run. It is no fun to be ‘house poor!’” — John Moretti of Williams and Stuart Estate, williamsandstuart.com

“Once a buyer knows their borrowing limits, a couple of things will happen. They will view homes they know are within their budget and not be disappointed afterwards to learn that the home they fell in love with is outside of their budget and/or lending limit.” — Elise Vetri of Keller Williams Northern RI, elisevetri.com

“Understand that owning property requires monies for maintenance, and include those numbers in your budget.” — Michelle Drum of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty, gustavewhite.com

“Have your financing in place. It’s a competitive market and you want to put your best foot forward, especially if you are in a multiple offer situation.” — Kim Fleming of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty, gustavewhite.com

Of selecting a realtor

“Always have a buyer’s agent. The listing agent does not work for you or care about your outcomes.” — Robert Rutley of the Blackstone Team at Mott and Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, mottandchace.com

“When choosing your buyer’s agent, ask friends, family and co-workers to give you recommendations of folks who have done a great job for them in the past. This is probably one of the biggest purchases of your life, so why not meet with a few? It’s just as important to find the right fit with the person who is hired to represent you in the transaction as it is to find the right home. You want to have someone with whom you feel comfortable and trust; it is a very intimate relationship!” — John Moretti of Williams and Stuart Estate, williamsandstuart.com

“First-time buyers should take the time to meet with a realtor early on in the process so that they can get proper guidance. They will have the opportunity to learn about the loan options and what the buying process looks like. This step will make the entire home-buying experience more seamless and hence enjoyable for the buyer.” — Elise Vetri of Keller Williams Northern RI, elisevetri.com

“Select a realtor who knows your market of choice.” — James DeRentis of Residential Properties, Ltd, residentialproperties.com

“Work with an agent who is familiar with first-time buyers. VA, FHA and local options can save you thousands of dollars!” — Edward Rayden of Residential Properties, Ltd., residentialproperties.com

“Find a one season realtor to represent you. When you work with a realtor, you develop a rapport with them. This person is going to take you through possibly the largest purchase of your life. It is important to know and trust them.” — Rachel Jones, Sales Associate at Lila Delman Real Estate, liladelman.com

Of finding your home

“Before setting up an appointment to look at a house, take a drive by and also check it out online to find out all that you can about the property before actually touring it.” — Paul A Leys of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty, gustavewhite.com

“Think long term: ‘Where do I see myself in five years?’ Also, think location, location, location before locking in those amenities that you want. It will pay off in the long run!” — Mary Ann Lisi of Residential Properties, Ltd., residentialproperties.com

“Focus your search to two to three areas — it can get overwhelming if you are not targeting specific cities, towns or neighborhoods. Allow your realtor to help decide which might be best given your budget, desires, etc.” — John Moretti of
Williams and Stuart Estate, williamsandstuart.com

“Understand your needs, i.e. number of beds, number of baths and viable cities, but also look for potential — your sweat equity could yield great gains!”— Edward Rayden of Residential Properties, Ltd., residentialproperties.com

“Know that the value of property will always rise. It may seem like a rollercoaster, but it’s the best investment that you can make. Home ownership is the great equalizer in every income bracket — it always builds wealth.” — Robert Rutley of the Blackstone Team at Mott and Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, mottandchace.com

Overall

“Keep an open mind and listen to the professionals. It’s a tricky market, and sometimes there are a lot of ‘outside’ experts who like to give real estate advice.” — Kim Fleming of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty, gustavewhite.com

“Set realistic goals, listen to your agent’s guidance and find a team (banker, attorney and agent) that is communicative.” — Michelle Snoeren of Residential Properties, Ltd., residentialproperties.com

“In this tight market, bid competitively from the get-go.” — Arianne Tanasio, Broker of Tanasio Realty Advisors, tanasiorealty.com

“Be sure to ask questions. Many buyers feel they are bothering their agent by calling them and asking for help. An experienced real estate agent has a wealth of knowledge and is a great resource of information. Use this time to learn as much as you can. It benefits everyone if all parties are communicating in a fruitful manner.” — Elise Vetri of Keller Williams Northern RI, elisevetri.com

“Know that it’s okay not to know things and if the realtor, lender or home inspector doesn’t have the time to explain what’s going on, then you need to get someone different to help you! Buying your first home can be a lot of fun, so be engaged from beginning to end!” — John Chapski of Coldwell Banker Realty, nemoves.com

The Don’ts of Financial Prep

“Don’t apply for any new credit or make any major purchases on credit before your sale is final.” — Arianne Tanasio, Broker of Tanasio Realty Advisors, tanasiorealty.com

“Don’t change jobs. Job stability is key until your purchase is closed.” — Holly Prentice of Keller Williams Realty of Newport, kwnewportbeachestates.com

“Don’t make an offer on a property until you have a proof of funds or a pre-qualification in hand, it can be very disappointing if you lose out on a property because you were not prepared, or in a financial position to buy.” — Kim Fleming of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty, gustavewhite.com

“Don’t go into a transaction unrepresented — this is one of the largest purchases most of us make. Make sure you have good advice and counsel. Zillow and the like are not substitutes for a good realtor.” — James DeRentis of Residential Properties, Ltd, residentialproperties.com

Off Selecting a Realtor

“Don’t try to search for a home on your own. Always hire an agent so you have someone on your side who is looking out for your best interest.” — David Travers of Keller Williams East Bay, kw.com

“Don’t just go online and choose a realtor from a real estate website — meet with a few different folks from various companies. Attend some open houses in your target area or that might be in your desired price point to meet realtors who understand that market. It is very important that you have trust and a comfortable rapport with the person who will be representing your fiduciary best interests!” — John Moretti of Williams and Stuart Estate, williamsandstuart.com

“Do not hire the first agent you come in contact with. Ask to interview them or, at the very least, ask about their experience and number of homes that they have sold.” — Elise Vetri of Keller Williams Northern RI, elisevetri.com

“Be careful when you are searching for listings on third party websites. Often, you are not speaking with the agent representing the property. Don’t feel you are obligated to work with an agent who contacts you, it is your choice who you want to represent you.” — Kim Fleming of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty, gustavewhite.com

“Don’t go directly to the listing agent to make an offer; they do not represent you, they represent the seller.” — Arthur Chapman of William Raveis, raveis.com

“Don’t work with multiple agents. When you work with multiple agents, it’s hard to develop a relationship and get to know each other.” — Rachel Jones, Sales Associate at Lila Delman Real Estate, liladelman.com

“Do not sign a buyer’s representation agreement before being 100 percent comfortable with the agent.” — Michael Russo of RI Real Estate Services, 401sold.com

Of Finding your Home

“Don’t set your heart on a specific style of home. Be open to anything and buy for location first.” — Mary Ann Lisi of Residential Properties, Ltd., residentialproperties.com

“Don’t let the pictures online fool you — many times the house in reality is much different than online. Sometimes better, but also sometimes not as nice. Go and see it for yourself.” — Paul A Leys of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty, gustavewhite.com

“Don’t be afraid to wait for the house that checks all of the boxes. This market is unique with all that is going on right now. Home buying is a process and you may have to wait until more inventory comes on the market to find the perfect home for you. But when it does, be ready to jump on it and be sure you get it. Go all in as you will have competition!” — John Chapski of Coldwell Banker Realty, nemoves.com

“Don’t skip the home inspection on your first home. This is your time to understand everything about this big purchase.” — Holly Prentice of Keller Williams Realty of Newport, kwnewportbeachestates.com

Overall

“Don’t be afraid to ‘stop the music!’ If you are having second thoughts on a purchase, just say so and walk away! This is especially important during the home inspection phase of the purchase. A good realtor will work quickly to get your deposit back and get you onto the next property showing ASAP. I’ve hand-delivered return deposits rather than letting them float around in the mail. If you’re not happy, speak up, change direction and find something else to buy!” — John Chapski of Coldwell Banker Realty, nemoves.com
