I want to help people that never thought that homeownership was possible. I want to help people that have never had a positive experience when buying or selling a home.
I want to use real estate to provide for my wife & family, to fund local ministry, and international missions, especially in the 2/3 world where most of my past mission trips have been. Since my first mission trip to Nepal (pictured below on the left) & a few other nations when I was 11 years old, I have been out of the country on mission trips over 20 times, mostly with orphaned, abused, and incarcerated children including over a dozen trips with Orphan Helpers, which my father, Greg Garrett, founded. Each trip was not just impactful to those I served, but to me as well.
I count my missions to be one of the greatest blessings of my life. You can see pictures from the slideshow below &/or read some of my stories from past mission trips here.
While I can refer you to another Realtor anywhere in the country (see "Referrals" below), I personally serve throughout 757, 804, & through much of eastern 434.
Generally, I'll sell a home in VA up to an hour and a half away from Newport News, and will help a buyer up to 3 hours away. For those beyond that distance, I am happy to refer them to a few possibilities that would be a closer fit to their location and preferences. With listings and buyers over $500,000, and for other reasons at times, I can make exceptions.
Locations served include Chesapeake, Charles City, Chesterfield, Gloucester, Hampton, Henrico, Isle of Wight, James City County, King William, Mathews, Middlesex, Newport News, New Kent, Norfolk, Poquoson, Portsmouth, Prince George, Richmond, Southampton, Smithfield, Suffolk, Surry, Sussex, Toano, Virginia Beach, Williamsburg, York County, and beyond!
Zipcodes served include 23011, 23030, 23168, 23185, 23187, 23188, 23304, 23314, 23320, 23321, 23323, 23324, 23325, 23432, 23432, 23434, 23435, 23436, 23451, 23452, 23453, 23454, 23455, 23456, 23459, 23460, 23461, 23462, 23464, 23487, 23503, 23504, 23508, 23509, 23513, 23518, 23523, 23551, 23601, 23602, 23603, 23604, 23605, 23607, 23608, 23651, 23661, 23662, 23663, 23664, 23665, 23666, 23669, 23690, 23691, 23692, 23693, 23696, 23701, 23702, 23703, 23704, 23707, 23708, 23709, 23839, 23846, 23881, 23883, 23899, & more!
You may or may not already know this fact, but real estate agents can get high-value referral fees for referring you to another real estate agent to buy or sell in a different area even if it's in a different part of the country. What that can mean for you is that if I am going to give you a referral, I have a high financial incentive to give you the best referral possible.
Rebate Matches on Referrals
In addition, Greg Garrett Realty has a policy where we will match virtually any offer from other companies for rebates and otherwise (such as found with USAA). I would like to extend that offer to my referrals throughout the country in all states where it is legally permitted (approximately 75% of states permit rebates for buyers and sellers).
Additional Home Buying Incentives
As an added bonus, I have a larger list of home buying incentives than any resource that I've found after scouring the internet including combining lists of lists all into one place for the most comprehensive resource I am aware of for helping you to save further on a home purchase. I believe in it so much that if you find a more comprehensive list than I have, and send it to me, I will give you $100. The value of some of these resources is incredible. Programs exist where eligible buyers can get as little as 0% interest, up to $65,000 in down payment assistance, 50% off a home, 37 year loans, options for no down payment, “credit score not considered,” and otherwise. The programs include some with no income limits, including one to help people acquire homes up to $1,000,000.
