When three ACES: banker and realtor Nelvin Adriatico, interior designer and realtor Ella Guinhawa and real estate investor and developer Avinash Thadhani came together to create CORE Realty, they had one thing in mind: It’s all about You! “We are a boutique realty firm, dedicated to making the process of buying or selling as comfortable and stress-free as possible.” And when you do walk through their doors, you feel relaxed and at home. Edith offers you water, coffee, or even a glass of wine. Then you meet the CORE team, and they want to know your story.
“We know there are many realtors in Sugar Land. They put a for-sale sign in your yard, take pictures and put it online. Most times, that’s all the interaction. This is where we are different. Just like a wedding needs a planner, so does a homebuyer and a seller. If you’re buying an $80,000 or a million dollar home, you deserve the same attentive, up-close and personal treatment.”
“When you’re ready to sell your home, we don’t just list it. We are your partner and you can trust us to tell you what’s necessary to add value. We will present our ideas and create an action plan. Ella will guide you on how to show your home at its best. You may find Avi at Home Depot searching for light bulbs or see him planting flowers outside. CORE hires a professional photographer to showcase your home. It’s your masterpiece and we make sure it’s treated like one. Ahead of scheduled showings you can find Avi inside prepping, opening blinds and checking bulbs. When under contract, Nelvin will make sure the buyer’s agent is staying on top of the lender. He predicts potential delays and proactively works with the other parties to avoid them.”
And when you’re buying, Nelvin will review your information and get you approved before looking at homes. With a banking background, he knows what a lender wants and how to put together a strong loan application. We know obtaining a mortgage can be stressful and sometimes tricky…but with Nelvin’s banking experience, he understands the lending process, and can be the “go-between” between you and the lender.
“Everyone has an unusual situation and often the client is stressed or over-worried. But when we hear it, we know how to address it to make it work. We’ve helped buyers with recent job changes or who have commission based incomes that did not think they could obtain a mortgage, but we listened, made it happen and then found them their home.”
Rounding out the CORE “Team of Aces” are agents TJ Perez and Caroline Tran. TJ says, “What drew me to CORE is the commitment to values, honesty and integrity. There’s no cutting corners here, and we are committed to you and to building lifelong friendships and relationships. Quality over quantity.”
The ACES are all long-time Sugar Land residents. “We truly believe we’ve put together a team with a wide range of expertise…so that we provide a competitive advantage while catering to you on a personal level. Call us or visit our office for a cup of coffee and chat. We believe once you do, you will be sold on CORE Realty.”
