We had an amazing experience and would recommend Rob and his team to anyone looking.
When my husband and I started the process of buying our very first home, we were introduced to Rob Reinke. He sent us listings for home in the price range we wanted. When it came time to look at homes, he was so knowledgeable and really took the time to make us feel like we were making an investment. He answered all of our one million questions :) Rob never left us in the dark about anything. He got back to us so quickly when we did have a question. He and his entire team made the whole process so smooth and not mention closing on our new home was so quick and easy. We had an amazing experience and would recommend the Reinke Real Estate Team to anyone looking to buy or sell. Wes & Amber - Isanti
Rob is the most professional realtor I've ever worked with.
Rob Reinke with the Reinke Real Estate Team helped me in the recent purchase of my home. Rob is the most professional Realtor I've ever worked with. Excellent Realtor!! I would recommend Rob - and his team - to anyone looking to purchase a home. Shane & Rebecca - Coon Rapids
If you want a realtor that really goes the extra mile, choose Rob & his team.
As a first time home buyer, I had very little knowledge on how the entire process worked as well as what to expect when acting on a property. Rob could not have been any more helpful with checking the status of properties as well as 'spur of the moment' showings. If you want a realtor that really goes the extra mile, choose Rob and his team. The greatest trait I took away from the experience was the fact that he had zero hesitation when giving me an honest opinion of the location or condition of a house, but was never overly persuasive to one in particular. If I ever pursue selling and getting myself into a different house that offers me or my future family more, I can genuinely say Rob Reinke with the Reinke Real estate Team will be getting a phone call. Thank you for all of your efforts! Tanya - Blaine
I would definitely recommend Rob Reinke and the Reinke Real Estate Team to friends and family
I met Rob after he helped my parents buy a house and when looking to build a new home having a real estate agent on our side was suggested. So I reached out to him and his team and Rob was always accessible, many times at odd hours or weekends and if he didn’t know an answer he would find out and let me know right away. I would definitely recommend the Reinke Real Estate Team to my friends and family for the services that he provides. Excellent job.! Candy - Andover
100% CARE FOR OUR CLIENTS
The Marketing we do to promote your home has only one purpose – to increase awareness among potential buyers leading to in-person showings. The average Realtor waits until a home is active on the MLS to start marketing and they wait for a buyer to come to them. Not what the Reinke Real Estate Team has in mind.
Before your home is listed, we will launch a marketing campaign to get potential buyers and buyer agents excited about your home. Our typical pre-marketing campaign gets 100's of potential buyers interested in learning more about your home before it hits the market. Once they schedule a showing, the marketing to that buyer is over. Now, your home must now compete with other homes in two areas;
FEATURES AND PRICE
If your home has more features that appeal to buyers – or your home is priced lower than the comparables homes-your home will stand out as the better value.
Conversely, if your home lacks the features that potential buyers desire, your only option is to compete on price. To be effective, your home should standout as one of the top two to three best values in your immediate marketplace.
Pricing your home for a successful sale
Pricing your home accurately is the most effective way to ensure a successful sale. Allow me to repeat that – pricing your home accurately is the most effective way to ensure a successful sale.
No amount of marketing can sell an overpriced home.
Many sellers are tempted to list their home with the agent who quotes the highest price.
Please keep in mind, the agent doesn’t set the price, the seller doesn’t set the price – the market will set the price, or value, for your home.
Preparing the condition of your home for a successful sale
With the typical agent, you only discover potential deal-killing repairs after you are already under contract – when the buyer hires a home inspector to scrutinize every aspect of your home.
Discovering and repairing problems early in the marketing process places you in control, eliminating the stress of making repairs on the buyer's schedule. Having your house in move-in condition also helps you avoid delays to closing and demonstrates to buyers, agents and the buyers’ home inspector that your house has been very well maintained. We want buyers to focus on how they would live in your home – not what they would have to repair.
Additionally, your house will stand out from the competition as a better value and command a higher price.
I will also recommend trustworthy, professional contractors to address any repairs that are needed. The extent that these repairs are made will directly affect your listing price. You have the ability to command a higher asking price, and substantiate it, when your home is in top condition.
Setting the stage of your home for a successful sale
Once we have your home inspected and the necessary repairs have been made, we will focus on presentation. You will only get one opportunity to make a positive first impression with potential buyers. Well staged homes look better, photograph better, show better and sell faster than non-staged homes.
When you list – and close – your home with the Reinke Real Estate Team, we will pay to have a staging consultation completed by one of the areas most experienced professional stagers.
Home staging is not decorating. Decorating appeals to the person living in the house; staging is positioning the home to appeal to the psychological needs of buyers by creating a series of impressions that build an emotional connection to help buyers imagine living in the home. A recent poll revealed that 87% of respondents said home presentation makes the difference in most residential sales.
Also, while many listing agents overlook the presentation of your home and push for price reductions - the problems, whether perceived or real, still exist.
Marketing your home for a successful sale
Your home is now priced accurately and looks great. Let’s show it off!
The marketing of your home will reflect an established history of how buyers search for, and purchase, homes.
- 95% of buyers use the internet during their home search.
- 85% of all home sales in the Houston MLS are co-brokered. This means there is a listing agent who represent you, the seller, and another agent who represents the buyer of your home. As a result, marketing to Realtors is our most productive activity.
- The most effective way to get the attention of productive agents and buyers is through accurate pricing and great photography.
After your home is staged, we will pay to have your home photographed by a professional real estate photographer, using the latest techniques in High Definition Resolution (HDR) photography.
Over 90% of home buyers are using the Internet to search for homes, and professional photography is essential to any comprehensive marketing plan.
As you know, more people will view your home online than will ever visit it personally. Getting (and holding) their attention online with professional photography is one way to increase the probability of an in-person showing.
“Buyers perceive homes with professional photography to be worth, on average, 12% more than the actual price.”
- The Wall Street Journal

A Market within a Market
Your home will not only be marketed through universal channels such as the Internet, the Multiple Listing Service and signage, I will also market internally to our highly collaborative "local" real estate agents, nearly 3,000 – each with their own connections that form a rich source of prospects, buyers, and referrals.
