The ideals that drive Forge Homes Real Estate Brokerage forward can be separated into core values that guide our decision making:
- Commitment to Excellence – Commitment in all we do for our internal and external customers. First rate and superior service. Ownership of the outcome.
- Integrity – High standards of honesty and strong moral principles. Doing the right thing all the time with no exemption.
- Innovation – progressive, enlightening forward-thinkers who seek out new ideas and utilize technology for better solutions and streamlined processes.
- Fearlessness – Able to take on challenges, difficult situations, demanding customers and tight deadlines without being reckless. Always engaging in critical thinking.
Many companies create core values for the sake of creating them, but they don’t always live up to their own standards. Here at Forge Homes, we truly use these values to drive every aspect of our business. We believe that our core values are the inspiration that keeps our team united and working toward a common goal. When core values are not taken seriously, it really weakens their importance and can lead to conflict and disconnect within the organization.

Advantages of Working with a Buyer’s Agent
Having an exclusive buyer’s agent on your side means more than just helping you find a great home. Your agent will also:
- Use knowledge and experience to help you navigate local market conditions
- Act as an advocate for the buyer during the entire homebuying process
- Actively negotiate price and terms strictly on behalf of the buyer
- Along with our Broker Attorney, prepare necessary contracts, forms, and written offers
- Along with our Licensed Contractor, schedule property inspections, as well as provide advice regarding necessary improvements and repairs
- Consult with the buyer about financing options, including personalized solutions from our allied Mortgage Brokerage
- Attend the loan closing to help address any last-minute details and questions
The bedrock of any long lasting relationship is trust. We keep buyers updated, prepare them for each step, and prioritizing their goals as our own. While this may sound like a given, many home buyer’s agents lack the expertise or communication skills that allow us to keep buyers informed and updated. We understand that the home buying process is unfamiliar territory to many clients and we want to alleviate fear and avoid pitfalls. Even if the news isn’t exactly great, we understand that the more information that you have involving the process and your hard earned money, the better you will feel about the process. Purchasing a home isn’t just a matter of writing a check — it’s an extensive course of events designed to protect you. We want you to understand why these things are necessary as the closing process is complex and will be and will be thoroughly explained.
