Bust out the Yuengling and toast your neighbors, because you can now work with a Redfin real estate agent to help you buy or a sell a home in the Lehigh Valley. Redfin agents are paid to put you first and will save you enough money for a big night out at the Sands or for Phantoms season tickets at the new PPL Center! Anyone in the greater Allentown area can use the Redfin online and mobile tools to search every home for sale.
Redfin combines superior service and cutting-edge technology to revolutionize the home-buying and selling processes. Our technology empowers both our agents and customers with information and tools that make buying and selling a home more efficient, less stressful and more fun.
Redfin agents focus solely on delivering top-notch service to successfully guide people through the home-buying and selling processes. This efficiency, powered by the best technology in the industry, also enables Redfin to pass savings on to our clients. Someone who buys a $300,000 home with a Redfin agent in Allentown would receive a refund of more than $1,900 at closing. And instead of the typical 3 percent commission, Redfin charges sellers a 1.5 percent fee, while providing a beginning-to-end home-selling service, from pricing and staging advice and open houses through the negotiation and closing processes. Someone selling a $300,000 home with a Redfin agent would save $4,500.
Just like their colleagues throughout the country, Redfin agents in Allentown earn a salary and receive health care benefits. They earn bonuses based on customer satisfaction, not commission. This means they are incentivized to help you find the right home, and the best deal, no matter what.
Redfin hired Heidi Kulp-Heckler to spearhead the business in Allentown. Heidi was born and raised in the Allentown area, and has over 20 years of real estate experience. She spent most of her career helping people buy and sell new construction properties and spent the past five years as a residential real estate agent, most recently at The Frederick Group brokerage.
“I first heard about Redfin from a friend in Seattle who worked with a Redfin agent to buy her home and told me what a great experience she had,” Heidi says. “It sounded like a company whose values matched my own, so you can imagine how excited I was to learn that Redfin was expanding to Allentown. I love being an advocate for my clients and taking the time to help them make the right choice on the biggest financial decision of their lives.”
Heidi is already on the ground in Allentown touring homes with buyers, and guiding people through the offer, negotiation, closing and home-selling processes. If you’re thinking about buying or selling, feel free to reach out to Heidi, schedule a tour or start a conversation about your home’s value.
