Meet RealVantage

Real estate is a people business, and you, as our client, are what’s most important to us. If you have any questions about how we work, what the process of selling a house looks like, or just want to learn more about us… don’t hesitate to contact us anytime!

About RealVantage

At RealVantage, our focus is to provide real estate. Yes, provide, not just buy and sell. Together, we want to present folks with every option they have for their specific situation, in addition to helping provide more homes and more quality rentals in our low-inventory markets– Spokane, Spokane Valley, and the Tri-Cities areas. So many buyers and over-qualified renters cannot find the housing they desperately want and need. And so many sellers cannot find informed, honest, and profitable guidance. That’s where we come in.

Traditional real estate does not work for everyone, and we are sensitive to that. We see the bigger picture. And because we see real estate from every vantage point, we are able to help people reach a variety of goals with even more options.

“Working with Lennie made a what is usually a very stressful situation go very smoothly. She worked tirelessly for us and was in constant communication with us. Because of her knowledge and communication we constantly knew the status of our purchase… She is also just a great person and you felt like it was working with a longtime friend.

Nellie was amazing to work with! She got me into my first home without a hiccup. The market is crazy right now but I was still able to get my first home on first offer through her. The experience was personal and she is very efficient at jumping through the hoops. Will definitely go through her for any future real estate!

“I want to share a bit of our experience with Lauren Rasmussen and Alex Hendrickson. I want to start off by saying that they both have the tenacity and grit and professionalism to get the job done… We have had the pleasure on working on two complete transactions, from purchasing and selling… I would highly recommend anyone in need of a Realtor. They are always willing to go the extra mile, and are always looking for our best interest! The best part was doing the transactions remotely!

What Makes us Different from other Agents

Even in a seller’s market like Spokane or Tri-Cities, Wa, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. RealVantage is different than traditional agents or house buyers because we are actually both! Because we are real estate investors and licensed, reputable agents, we can offer more options to help you reach your goals when selling your Spokane house. Dive into the details below to compare your options.

Who Pays For RepairsNegotiated during the inspection periodInvestorNONE – We pay for all repairs if selling to us for cash
*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale.
Similar, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.
Here at RealVantage, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
