Why Hire Us?

Flanders Realty Group

When you hire people that are smarter than you are, you prove you are smarter than they are.”  – R.H. Grant

Real estate agents earn about the same in commission so why not hire an agent who has years of experience?  Along with years of experience an agent, or agency, should meet or exceed the benchmarks of qualifications; which are:

  • To be knowledgeable of the current market conditions, trends, and surrounding territory
  • To understand every aspect of the buying and selling process, including; contracts, negotiations, inspections, contingencies, and final closing paperwork
  • To have a thorough understanding of the laws and regulations required to purchase or sell property thereby protecting the buyer or seller against fraud
  • To have earned the appropriate credentials such as licensing and accreditation

Joe Flanders, owner of Flanders Realty Group, and his agents, have earned these benchmarks and are licensed and accredited in the designations of; *Accredited Buyers Association (ABR), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), e-Pro, and Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI).

Beyond accreditation, Joe Flanders is an active member of the:

  • National Association of REALTORS® – Currently a board member of the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice
  • Wisconsin REALTORS® Association
  • Northwoods Association of REALTORS®
  • Greater Northwoods MLS – Director
  • Downtown Rhinelander Inc (DRI) – Board of Directors
  • Economic Restructuring Committee – Chairman

Meeting and exceeding the qualifications wanted in an agent or agency makes Flanders Realty Group the clear choice when asking, “Why hire us?”

*Less than 50% of realtors earn the GRI designation, less than 30% of realtors earn the ABR designation, and less than 4% of realtors earn the CRS designation.  (e-PRO is a course that teaches computer skills and ensures agents are proficient in technology use.)
