We are happy to introduce you to the newest member of the Licata Group family, our new Listing Manager, Barbra Crane!

Barbra began her real estate career in 1998 as a licensed assistant. She then went on to sell real estate and has won several awards for her production over the years.  In 2004 she obtained her Broker’s license, and in 2008 she became the team leader for the Stafford KW office.  It was there that she found her a passion in helping agents succeed. Being a team leader is what made her realize that her calling is in helping realtors build their business and teams.

Licata Group/KWCP Addressing The Coronavirus

Dear VALUED members of The Licata Group/Keller Williams Capital Properties Family,

We are all aware of the recent Coronavirus pandemic, and we wanted to reach out and assure you that we are taking every necessary effort and precaution to protect the health and safety of our employees, clients and community. While the virus does affect the methods in which traditional business operations are conducted, rest assured that we will continue to operate to the best of our abilities. Our Licata Group team of Full Time Real Estate Advisors are adapting to best meet the needs of clients, and our employees to continue operations. As times change, we must change with them. It is for that reason that we are here to inform you how we will be operating until further notice.

  • Our Licata Group office will continue to operate within normal business hours with limited personnel occupying the facility in order to ensure a healthy working environment. This may change within the coming weeks should the Governor issue a quarantine. Should that occur, our Administrative and Client Support staff are prepared to begin working from home, while still performing their necessary duties.
  • Our Real Estate Advisors will continue their efforts in both the buying and selling process, while taking the necessary precautions to ensure that the health and safety of everyone is protected. This includes sanitizing all doorknobs and any other frequently touched surface with Alcohol wipes, and antibacterial products.

As you are aware, one of the most crucial parts of the home buying and selling process are showings and open houses.

  • Showings will continue to occur; however, we urge both clients and staff to take the necessary precautions when entering a home. This includes frequent sanitization, and proper self-distancing.
  • At this time, all traditional Open Houses have been postponed until it is deemed safe for the public. That being said, we will begin conducting Virtual Open Houses that will walk clients through each home, while explaining everything about the property. These virtual open houses will be displayed on the homepage of our websites, as well as our various social media platforms. Viewers are encouraged to ask any and all questions they may have, to which our advisors will promptly respond to.

We will continue to update you on any further changes that may occur. With the way our world is changing, it’s important to remain optimistic. We sincerely thank you for your understanding and support, as we continue our efforts during this time. Things may change in this world, but we will do our best to adapt and meet the needs of our employees, our clients and our community.

Stay Safe!!

A How-To Guide for Buying a house Out of State

Buying a house out of state can be a big bite for many of us. Some are even scared to try, and rightfully so. There are many things that can go wrong even when you are buying a house in your neighborhood, let alone somewhere far away. But, don’t be discouraged. If your mind is set on buying a property out of state, this guide will help you ensure the deal goes smoothly. 

Do a thorough research

It goes without saying that you should do thorough research before buying a home wherever you decide it should be. Don’t rely entirely on your real estate agent. Of course, he or she is there to help you find the best place for your relocation, but there are some things that should be doublechecked. Furthermore, there are some details about the neighborhood that not even your agent is familiar with. Google can lend a helping hand, you just have to know where to search. Arm yourself with patience and start browsing. There are many neighborhood guides that can be very helpful for getting to know a community of your interest. These guides are great because they tell you a lot about local crime rates, employment potential, weather, and economic stability

Always do thorough research before making any big decisions

Start early to avoid stress

Searching for a home to buy is stressful under the best of circumstances, but buying out of state can be incredibly stressful. A house is usually the most expensive thing that people buy, so the process should be performed with the utmost care. You can help yourself a lot by starting the search as early as possible. If you have decided to move, the ideal time to start searching for your new home is six months before the due date of your relocation. Three months is also a doable period, but don’t let yourself start a search later than that. 

Be careful when choosing an agent for buying a house out of state

When you decide to relocate out of state, you need to find a real estate agent who will do most of the work for you. And, there is a lot of work to be done. An international move often means a lot of paperwork, so some people are not sure whether they should hire a real estate agent or a lawyer when buying a property.

The best decision you can make is to hire a buyer’s agent in the state you are relocating to. Do not ask a listing agent to represent you since he or she will probably represent the seller. In that case, their job is to sell a certain property for the biggest amount of money and they only have the seller’s best interest in mind, not yours. So, you should choose a buyer’s agent

A good buyer’s agent is your biggest help

How do I choose a buyer’s agent for buying a house out of state?

The buyer’s agent is definitely a better option than a listing agent, but still, you shouldn’t pick one randomly. Instead, you can discuss it with a real estate agent in your present community. Find one that you trust and ask him/her to refer a colleague from the area you’ll be moving to. If the real estate agent is a member of the National Association of Realtors, he/she will have access to various databases. They can even see their colleagues’ success rates. By getting a referral, you can ensure that you do not become a victim of various realty scams. 

Hire a relocation specialist

Have you heard of relocation specialists? No, that is not the term used for professional movers such as Gibraltar Van Lines who can help you relocate wherever and whenever you feel like. A relocation specialist is a person who can help you with many aspects of your move. The only thing that they do not do is negotiate your home purchase. However, they can:

  • help you find a real estate agent to start home-hunting;
  • connect you to moving companies;
  • give you the necessary details about the education and employment system in your future home town;
  • help you sell and close on your current home which is an important part of the procedure you have to go through when buying a house out of state.

It is a common practice for companies that are relocating to hire relocation specialists. That is why many people do not know they are available to individuals as well.

Take a trip and get an inspection of your potential home if you can

If you are buying a house out of state you will probably not be able to go to every showing in person. What you can do is ask your agent to give you a virtual tour of the houses that you have shortlisted. Speaking of such tours, don’t fall for online virtual tours because they are usually a part of a moving scam. 

When the time comes for you to make an offer on the house, you should really make an effort and see everything in person. There are many things that even the best real estate agents will not notice. You will be able to feel the space, and that is something no virtual tour or agent’s descriptions can replace. And you wouldn’t want to make a mistake when making such a crucial decision as buying a house out of state, would you? 

Try to go and see the property you are interested in buying in person

Many sellers would work on some features that make their home sell faster while neglecting some major issues about their property. That is where a home inspection comes in handy. It might be a burden to your budget, but at least you will know what you are dealing with. 

Close on your current home first

If the out-of-state closing is scheduled on the same day as the closing on your current home, you might have a problem. The lender for your new house must receive a closing statement from the old one. The best thing you can do is schedule the closing on the new house a few days after the closing on your current one.

 Whether you’re looking for homes for sale in Fredericksburg, Stafford, Orange, Locust Grove, Norther Virginia or even Maryland or DC, we are your Real Estate team committed to finding the perfect home for you! Thinking of selling? In any market condition, “what is my home worth?” is the #1 question asked by homeowners. If you wish to sell your home, it needs to be sold for top dollar, and in a timely manner. Pricing your home accurately, one of our area expert advisors will partner with you to make the selling process so much easier.

Thankful for making such a great decision to trust the Licata Group with our property and requirements for the new home!”-M. Mauro

“We were very fortunate to have had Lauren as our agent and the selling of my parents home.

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thanks Pat Licata!”-M. Perez

“We contacted Pat to talk to her about selling my mom’s house. She helped us decide on the timing, and then when we decided to go ahead and sell right away, got things moving even faster than we could have expected. House sold right away, at a good price. She responded to a couple issues with the house, turning concerns into minor issues that were quickly resolved, rather than leaving us to figure out what we could or should do. Great advice and service!”-S. Hein

“Working with Pat was a very smooth process from getting the house ready for the market, to closing on the home. Pat is very confident and knowledgeable when it comes to selling. She said she would be sure if we didn’t have an offer within two weeks. Our first three offers were sent only after three days on the market. Her sales team are remarkable.

You will be pleased with the top notch customer service you’ll receive. Thank you Pat!”-R. Kunka

“Lauren Cotton, with Licata Group, was our listing agent. She gave us helpful advice for preparing our home for listing and scheduled an open house almost immediately.

We closed in four weeks, and we could not be more pleased with Lauren and the Licata team, who guided us through every step of the way.”-M. Onderdonk

“I’ve had Pat sell both of my houses within a week. The first house had a real estate agent who appraised it too low and she came in with confidence saying she knew it was worth more and she was right. We ended up selling for more than the asking price. The second house was a new build and had Multiple offers with a contract within a week. We only trust her because she is organized and knows the area so well. She is always willing to talk and answer any questions anytime of the day. She’s a wonderful human being. Everybody else at the office is very on top of things especially Jazmine. Thank you Licata group!”

“We had the best experience selling our rental house in Lake of the Woods. Lauren Cotton was such a blessing.

Thank you for such a smooth sale of our home! I would highly recommend this group for all of your home buying or selleng needs! They treat you like family!”-T. Schohn

“Extremely professional, helpful, and just an all around great team of great people. They all really went the extra mile with every step of the process. Highly recommend Licata Group to anyone buying or selling a home!”-D. Kalista

“The Licata Group was phenomenal through the whole process of selling our home. They fully explained the process and answered all questions we had. All members of the team are so friendly and we’re very helpful and accommodating! I will be reaching out to them again when the time comes for me to purchase a new home and highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. They were truly great! :)”-B. Kalista

“From the moment our Licata Agent, Lauren Cotton visited our property we felt very comfortable and at ease in our discussions about selling our home.

The whole Licata team were involved from start to finish and were in constant communication throughout the whole process.
The experienced and friendly advice we received from Lauren, Jazmine, and Barbara made it very easy for us to sell our home and remove the stress that is normally associated with this process. We would definitely recommend the Licata Realty Group.”-A. East

“The Licata Group-Keller Williams sold our home painlessly. Mary, our realtor, was with us every step of the way. She kept us updated on potential buyers, house showing and what we needed to do, if anything. Jazmine, our processor, handled all of our paperwork and ensured that any work on the house was scheduled. We have sold two homes over the course of our stay in Virginia, and by far going through Licata Group-Keller Williams has been the easiest!”-R. Webb

“We sold our home with Licata Group on the first day of listing. The home was priced appropriately for the market and advice for sale was spot-on.

We highly recommend the Licatas and especially, Pat, who was a calming influence during an otherwise stressful situation.” -M. Tee

“We had a wonderful Realtor Mary! She made everything as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend her and her team.”-E. Webb

“Attempting to sell a home during a Pandemic isn’t something I would ever recommend. But with the Licata Group; Pat, John, Lauren, Barbra, and Jazmine always at the ready to calm my fears and reassure me at every turn, I’d never work with anyone else. They got me into my home 3 years ago, and were able to then sell it for me when I needed to make this current life change. The agency had so many hurdles due to the COVID-19 Pandemic: virtual home sales, virtual open houses, and they handled it all with Grace and Professionalism.
Bravo, once again, Licata Group! I would recommend this team over and over and over!!!” -J. Laganga

“Contrary to popular belief, Winter is a good time to sell a home. In winter there are fewer snoopers and more serious buyers wanting to see the house. We contracted to sell a house in Lake of The Woods with Pat Licata in late December, had showings in January and February, signed a contract at the middle of February and closed by mid March for 98.5% of the listing price. The myriad of annoying details were handled by the Licata group and the closing went off without a hitch. Well done team Licata!!!”-P. Aitken-Cade

“I’ve used multiple agents in the area, the Licata group has been the best by far. They have a competent and responsive team, Jazmine is amazing.”-RCI Design

“Pat and The Licata team did a great job selling our existing home and helping my husband and I purchase a new home. Any problems that arose they quickly extinguished them. We would highly recommend Pat and The Licata team to anyone. Thank You Pat and The Licata Team”-R. McMillan

“Licata Group recently assisted us in selling a lot at Lake of the Woods. In a word, their support was outstanding. They expertly evaluated the property, advised on pricing and got the property on listing quickly. It sold in one day. When a family emergency called one of us away over a holiday weekend, the professionals at Licata Group helped get the necessary power of attorney and other documents developed so they could be signed and notarized before travel. Their expertise in remote closing was also especially useful as we live some distance from the property. Overall, we are very happy with the support we received; we will use their firm again if we decide to buy in the area; and recommended them to buyers (or sellers) seeking a smooth and professional real estate experience.” – R. Demeyere

“Great experience with the Licata group! My agent Lauren Cotton, was perfect through every step of the process and sold my house in less than a week. Top notch team and would use and recommend them to anyone.” -R. Cole

“Today marks the 3rd house sale Pat has helped me with. Shortly I will have another house on the market and it will be with Pat. Pat is able to help you locate contractors to repair or replace anything. When she tells you something you can take it to the bank. For me that means almost everything. I recommend her and her team to anyone.”-T. Dean

“The Licata Group sold my son a home in June and sold me a home just today. The entire staff is professional and great people to work with. Mary Maurer was the agent for both homes. She was wonderful each time. I would certainly recommend The Licata Group to any buyer or seller in the LOW area and most definitely recommend Mary. Thanks to all of you.” -B. Guill

“Pat and her team are wonderful to work with. Every question I had was answered quickly and I always felt like they were hard at work getting my home sold. It felt easy and seamless. I would highly recommend the Licata Group for anyone looking to sell or buy a home!” – K. Truong

“Great group of people. LOVED the personal touch with everything. Lauren is amazing.”-Mike A.

“I was very pleased with the professionalism of Mrs Pat Licata. It was very nice to get text by The Licata Group from potential buyers and time they wanted to look at your home and you decide. The house sold in less than a week. Thanks Pat for all your hard work!!!”- R. McMillan

“Very, very professional. Absolutely love Pat!!! She’s a amazing women very sweet. Overall her whole team is the BEST!!!!”-Shannon B

She takes a very personal and genuine approach to her work and it shows. She is responsive, honest and delivers on her commitments. She is top notch!”-N. Balle

“The Licata Group was extremely professional with assisting me with a purchase and a sale. Everyone made sure that all documents and procedures were done in a timely manner, with someone always available to answer questions. I highly recommend the Licata Group to anyone interested in working with a friendly, knowledgeable, and focused team. I have no reservations about referring them to future clients. Job well done!”-D. Berg

“Good team, very resourceful to get the job done. Thank you!”-K. Olson

“Thank you Pat, Lauren and Jazmine for all you did to help me buy my new house and rent the old house. You all are very professional, coordinate and communicate well; even while you were supposed to be on vacation! Great ethics and kindness to boot! Can’t thank you all enough.” – L. Novak

Pat was always immediately responsive to any of our inquiries during this process and we had total trust in her judgment and ability to get the job done! We would highly recommend Pat without hesitation to anyone looking for a fantastic real estate agent!” -K. Rothenberg

“Pat recently sold our house and we were thrilled to get the price we hoped for. She knows LOW inside & out. She has a wonderful personality and is an absolute joy to work with. She is professional and efficient with a caring touch. I HIGHLY recommend her.” -M. Liebold

“Pat Licata and her staff provided the epitome of professional service and constant attention directed at selling our property. We have made over 15 moves in the past, and this office ranks at the top of our list of recommended realtors. Anyone contemplating selling or buying a home in the Fredericksburg/Locust Grove area should first consider Pat’s office. You won’t regret your decision.” – B. Fredericks

“Best real estate experience I have had. My house sold quickly and at a fair price. Easy to work with and excellent communicators.” -S. Rycerz

“The Licata Group was very helpful in preparing our listing and checking with the LOWA to make sure there were no problems with the sale. We live in the Washington DC area and it was very helpful that we were able to do almost the entire process remotely.  Our thanks to Pat Licata and her staff for a successful sale.” -F. Killeen

“If you want to “sell” your house, list it with the Licata Group. They get it done! They exceeded our expectations. They really made it rather easy. They kept us informed and updated throughout the process. To Pat, John, and the entire team, thank you so much!!! The amazing Licata Group, they really feel like family.” – T. Schwartz

“Pat’s experience and energy really makes her stand out from the other Realtors.” – R. Linker
