Our goal is simple:
What is Comet Realty All About?
Everyone’s needs are different. Whether you are a first time buyer, or a seasoned veteran of the process, we have the experience necessary to guide you through your real estate transaction. We know that in order to satisfy you we must first listen to your needs, and then act to execute your wishes.
We work to make your real estate transaction
a pleasant experience.
Everyone knows that the best way to grow a business is through referrals. If your time with us is a profitable, enjoyable transaction where your needs are pleasantly fulfilled, your recommendation will go farther than any money spent advertising our agency. We are looking for customers for life, and look forward to helping you now---and with your future Real Estate needs.
Comet Realty is a small company that can focus on your needs. We are not some gigantic chain that treats its clients as “just another quick sale”. We answer to you, not a “home office” in another time zone. We live, work and play on the Central Coast, and have the “local knowledge” to get business done.
We know that a suit and tie does not make one a professional. It is the attention to detail, the follow up, the calls and e-mails, and the relentless dedication to your satisfaction that makes us professionals in Real Estate.
