3.  Exceptional Personalized Service — Glacial Ridge Realty, LLC prides itself on offering fast, personalized service to each of our clients in addition to providing our clients the best negotiating expertise available.

This personal touch also allows us to know who is in the home and how to get back to them for follow up and feedback on the property.


4.  Maximum Internet Exposure — Glacial Ridge Realty, LLC offers maximum internet exposure on all of our listings. We get your property on as many as 80 different websites and search engines.

5.  Just Right Pricing — Glacial Ridge Realty, LLC is committed to pricing your property to get it sold as soon as possible.

After going over these with you and recommending our price, we listen to you and list your property at “ just the right price.”


6.  Advice You Can Count On — We will help you sell your property quickly and for the most money possible. Frequently, homes that look their best sell faster—and for more money than others.
