Ever watch a house in your neighborhood sell in a weekend and then another one take six months? The right agent makes all the difference!
If you're looking to sell, Gerken & Associates is the team to interview! We’ll come out to your property and based upon its condition and that of the market, compare it to historical sales data of property that's recently sold in your area.
Once we've helped you determine a price, we'll offer you suggestions on best presenting your property to the current market.
In choosing us to be your Realtor, we'll submit your property to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and get busy marketing it right away.
We'll begin talking to as many area sales agents as we can about your property so that their buyers are aware of your listing. That way instead of having just one agent working for you, you'll soon have hundreds!
Gerken & Associates offers aggressive marketing plans for our home sellers.

Over 90 percent of home buyers use an agent. Why? Because the process of searching for the right home, contract negotiation, financing, and closing can be complex and stressful - especially the first time around!
Things have dramatically changed in the real estate industry over the last 10 years. Home buyers who haven't made a purchase in a while, will find they benefit from working with an experienced agent.
As one of the biggest purchases of your life, home buying can be very intense. Choosing the right salesperson is the first step. You don't want to be sold a house - you want someone to guide you through the process of buying a home.

And we don't give up searching until you're happy!
Through loan qualification, inspections, final walk-through, and closing, you can always count on us being by your side. We'll explain numerous forms and agreements, all while tracking and recording the entire process.
If you're in the market to buy a home, or even just thinking about it, please call or contact our licensed agents to serve you.
Selling property quickly takes more than placing an ad in the paper, a sign in the yard and holding open houses. In fact, only 12% of nationally sold homes are done by For Sale By Owners.

Professionally designed yard signs are immediately placed on and around your property. And we keep an eye on them too! It's a rare day to see a Gerken & Associates yard sign lying in the ditch.
Once listed, your home will be immediately placed on CharlieGerken.com, GerkenandAssociates.com, Realtor.com, Zillow.com, and hundreds more. These websites receive thousands of hits a day from buyers wanting to stay current with the latest Branson area listings.
We also offer the latest trends in online home viewing. We send a professional photographer to come out to your property with camera in hand and create a pictorial tour of your home. Your home will then be available 24 hours a day to preview. Even people in Japan can virtually walk through it!
Our agents have trained experience in handling negotiations, contracts, counter offers, estimating closing costs and net proceeds.
Many of the local lenders, surveyors, appraisers, inspectors, and other professionals working in this industry are our friends. You won't have to take a day off work to meet them. That's our job! We'll stick by your side and monitor your transaction all the way through closing day.
