Marla Adams worked for a brokerage firm for eight years before her entrepreneurial spirit led her to open her own firm, Flip Side Realty By Design, three years ago.
What makes her brokerage firm different from others is the array of services offered. Marla wanted to create a “one stop shop” to help customers with all their property needs. She has been a proven industry expert covering all residential aspects of real estate including buying, selling, relocation, property management, and home renovation and design.
Buyers can benefit from her expertise in specific mortgage programs such as FHA 203K, homestyle, and rehabilitation loans. For clients looking to purchase investment property, Flip Side Realty By Design can perform all aspects of property management, including a tenant verification process that includes credit checks, employment verification, prior tenant history, and much more.
Marla has ongoing experience in flipping houses. Renovations are done on a very large scale with high yield returns on investment. She has well established relationships with contractors and extensive construction knowledge.
She can help customers envision what improvements can be made to a property, whether it is taking down a wall, expanding existing structures or completely redesigning an existing floorplan.
“There are pros and cons to a privately-owned local real estate brokerage. One benefit is the freedom to choose where to focus our efforts. For example, Homes for Heroes,” said Marla.
Having served in the U.S. Navy for 8 years, Marla knew she wanted to help her fellow servicemen and women when it came to purchasing or selling a home. Marla and her agents all share a passion for Homes for Heroes.
This organization began shortly after 9/11 and is the largest nationwide network of affiliate real estate, mortgage, and local business specialists; committed to providing easy ways for heroes to save on buying or selling a home. The organization was established to give back to firefighters, EMS, law enforcement, military (active, reserves & veterans), healthcare professionals and teachers for all they do. Homes for Heroes is a national organization, but it is fully funded by agents and brokers who choose to participate in the program and give a large percentage of their commission of each hero transaction.
Whether you are looking to rent, own or sell a home or property, Flip Side Realty By Design is ready to assist. For more information, go to www.FlipsideRealtybyDesign.com or call 813.335.1449.
