We began in the Columbia Illinois Real Estate Market, and have since expanded to selling homes in Waterloo, Red Bud, Valmeyer, Shiloh, OFallon, Swansea, Millstadt, Dupo, and Belleville Real Estate Markets and work with a number of relocation companies servicing the Scott Air Force Base Housing Market and helping Missouri buyers successfully relocate to the Metro East and Southern Illinois area.  Whether trying to sell your home For Sale By Owner or starting out as a first-time homebuyer, we'd like you to consider us the area expert for your real estate needs.  We are well-versed in residential, condo, multi-family, lots and land, new construction and commercial real estate and can't wait to show you how we can help you with your needs!  If you have questions regarding distressed properties, short sales, REO's or foreclosures, we are also trained and ready to help you with your needs.

FOR SELLERS: I realize that there are 3 main components to keeping our sellers happy– Communication, Listing Exposure, and Profitability for the Client.  These three key factors are consistently kept in focus when you list with my group. My team is well-versed in all aspects of selling a home- short sales or preforeclosures, fine homes and estates/luxury property, lots and acreage, and commercial.

Communication– Every seller I represent is assigned  a personalized follow-up program to suit their specific needs.  This program includes your own Service Website, bi-monthly mailings on your homes web presence as well as your  presence in print advertisements, and frequent phone calls to ensure your continued satisfaction.

Listing Exposure– My goal is to put your home in front of as many qualified buyers as possible.  I have studied which advertising methods are the most effective, and rest assured, your home will be featured in a top of the line marketing campaign.  Because The Linda Frierdich Real Estate Group is the Premier Real Estate Group in the area, I am able to use our combined experience and knowledge to promote your property .

Profitability for Our Clients–  As an active agent, I can assist you in making an informed decision about pricing your home.  If there is a way to put more dollars in your pocket, I will help you find it.   

For Buyers-

Buying a home stands alone as the most exciting investment you will make in your lifetime.  While the process can seem cumbersome, I will make every effort to ensure that your transaction is as enjoyable and smooth as possible.  I feel that  Market Knowledge and the Closing process are the most valuable services we provide our buyers.  With our 50 years combined experience, there isn’t too much that we haven’t  had to help a buyer overcome!  Put that to work for you!

Market Knowledge-  Whether you are a first time home buyer, moving up in your market,  or looking to build your dream home, I can assist you in finding the right area and the perfect home!  I dedicate myself to keeping up with current market conditions, lending practices, and community information.  I am also a new construction expert and deal with Lot & Acreage Sales on a daily basis. If you’ve got a question, chances are, I know the answer.

The Closing Process-  If you know someone with a real estate horror story, chances are it took place during this process.  I pride myself on handling the myriad of details from offer to acceptance to the closing table with as little inconvenience to our clients as possible.  It is my job to anticipate and handle any prospective problems BEFORE they become an issue for a buyer.  Additionally, I have a working relationships with plenty of lenders, title companies, inspectors, insurance agents, handymen, and other professionals  who I am confident can successfully assist you in your transaction.
