Born and raised in Texas, Korey Wacker focuses on transparency and building trust with his clients.
“There’s so much information out there about buying a home – some of it is valid, but some of it can be misleading or not accurate for a particular city,” offers Korey, Partner/Broker at Compass Colorado.
Korey attended the University of Maryland on a baseball scholarship and graduated. After taking a road trip with some friends through Denver on the way to Yellowstone, he was captivated by this city.
“I love the outdoors – especially snowboarding. I was looking to escape the humidity of Texas so the weather was perfect. Soon after moving here, I met my wife and we started a family.”
“Buying a home is a complex process, but if you understand it, you alleviate the stress of the unknown.”
“People can be shy about asking basic questions about buying a home. On some level, they feel like they shouldknow these things. But the fact most people do not go through the home-buying process very often – maybe only a few times during your life.
“As professional realtors, we do this everyday. So we know every step of the process and have seen a wide variety of situations. I encourage clients to ask me anything and everything that comes up.”
“Knowledge gives you power. When you understand the process, you’ll feel confident when we submit an offer, review the contract, go through inspections, and close.”
“One of my clients – they’d bought a house before – and did not have a great experience. So they were very guarded when we began working together. But I understood why and just met them where they were – answering questions, showing homes they wanted to see.”
“And, as the process went on, you could see they were feeling better about what I was offering – providing insight into different neighborhoods. Talking about financing. And most of all that I had a willingness to help and be available for on their schedule.”
“After we found the right home and closed escrow, he finally let his guard down and offered to take me to lunch. His perception of what a realtor could do in terms of navigating the process and protecting his interests had changed.”
“And now he has someone on his side when he’s ready to sell or if a family member or friend is looking for a referral.”
“When a client understands that the only way I can succeed in helping them find the right home, is when I put their interests first. Then they realize that I’m ally and advocate for them in this process.”
“I take the responsibility of helping clients find the right home very seriously. This is not something that happens very often during a lifetime and it’s very gratifying and personal for me to be a trusted part of that process.”
“At the end of the day, my goal is to get people into their new home with as little stress as possible.”
