Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 14, 2007
Emily Ray-Porter of Keller Williams Turtle Creek has been named the exclusive Dallas partner agent of Highrises.com. As the partner agent, Ms. Ray-Porter will provide Dallas listings, news and market insight to the thousands of condo shoppers who visit Highrises.com every day.
"We've found that buyers today want a more hands-on approach to finding their next home," explains Ms. Ray-Porter. "They don't want to just rely on the agent's opinion… they want to evaluate the entire market for themselves. Now, when buyers visit http://www.highrises.com/dallas they will see a description of every Dallas residential building as well as the available units in real-time from the local MLS. I've partnered with Highrises.com to bring this service to Dallas and I hope that many condo buyers will use it to become educated about the current marketplace. And as a full-service agent, when they're ready to start touring their favorite buildings I'm ready to help."
More and more Dallas residents are discovering what a great lifestyle high-rise condo living offers. Ms. Ray-Porter's clients range from empty nesters who want to downsize into a more manageable space, to young professionals who want to be able to walk to work and local nightlife. "Dallas is unique in that we have high-rise condos that can fit just about any budget so everyone can enjoy the lifestyle," said Ms. Ray-Porter. "We've helped clients find $100,000 lofts in downtown, and we've helped them find million-dollar mansions in the sky. Very few cities have that much selection to offer!"
In addition to condos, Ms. Ray-Porter has helped clients buy and sell townhouses and other Dallas in-town properties. In-town specialist Amy Leigh has joined Ms. Ray-Porter to assist with this growing client base. "We've had clients come to us excited about the idea of living in a high-rise, but then later decide that a townhouse or urban home is more suited to their needs," explained Ms. Ray-Porter. "Amy's experience in that area really helps us provide our clients with expertise and guidance for the entire in-town Dallas market."
"Dallas is one of the hottest condo markets in the country right now, and Emily is helping Dallas buyers and sellers make great decisions every day," said Brian Enright, Founder of Highrises.com. "We're so pleased to have the opportunity to partner with her and to broadcast her expertise and Dallas market insight to our national audience of condo buyers."
Mr. Enright continues, "When you're considering a condo purchase, it's important to work with an agent who knows the ins and outs of the local market. There are many questions that need to be answered, such as 'What do this building's HOA dues cover, and can they be raised? Am I liable for any special assessments? Is a new building scheduled to be built on that empty lot next door?' That's why I started Highrises.com - to make it easy for condo buyers to find a specialist like Emily in their city."
Since its founding in 2005, http://www.Highrises.com has become the premiere online resource for high-rise condo news and availability across the country. Highrises.com has currently partnered with agents in 12 cities and plans to more than double to over 30 cities in 2007.
