Interviewer: Hi, I'm Kathy Soltero, with Metro Brokers TV, and today in the studio we have with us, Dorothy Jones; and she is with Metroplex Realtors. Dorothy thank you so much for coming in and talking with us today.
Dorothy Jones: It's my pleasure, thank you for having me.
Interviewer: Absolutely, tell me a little bit about yourself in real estate.
Dorothy Jones: Well I've been in the real estate business for twenty years, there's about 41 years of experience within my office.
Interviewer: And you're a Denver native too, so you know a lot about the area, tell me what areas you work in primarily.
Dorothy Jones: I primarily work in the Aurora and Denver Metro area, but I've worked as far as Greeley and Boulder I've worked for thirty years for IBM, so I know the Boulder area and I know the Metropolitan area.
Interviewer: Absolutely, so what type of real estate is your specialty?
Dorothy Jones: I specialize in residential but I do also some commercial.
Interviewer: Oh, really. That's quite involved isn't it?
Dorothy Jones: Oh yes, mostly churches, apartment buildings.
Interviewer: And what types of clients do you primarily work with, do you like to work with first time home buyers.
Dorothy Jones: Oh, yes.
Interviewer: They are kind of fun aren't they?
Dorothy Jones: I'd run the gambit young, old, and poor, rich.
Interviewer: Oh no, do you work with sellers or buyers mostly, do you do both or.
Dorothy Jones: Both buyers and sellers, yes.
Interviewer: It's a pretty tough market out there still, I mean we are starting to see it rebound a little bit, but the process can be very confusing don't you think?
Dorothy Jones: Yes I think so, but I helped to navigate the waters that we have to tread in order to get through the process and with less stress for my buyers or sellers.
Interviewer: What sort of things do you think you have to focus on then?
DorothJones: Well mainly financing, for those who don't have cash, which is most of the population. Financing... and then just to inform them of what they all will be going through, so that they don't have the stress of wondering what is going to happen. Tell them in advance, they will know.
Interviewer: You feel like you are a kind of a counselor sometimes, don't you.
Dorothy Jones: Yeah more a facilitator.
Interviewer: You kind of really help them through the process, you know it really is great, helping clients, pursue their dreams, don't you think in real estate, that's something that you get an opportunity to do.
Dorothy Jones: Yes, that's the part, one of the parts that I really love is just helping them realize their dreams. Some people had never thought that they'd be home owners, especially first time home buyers, and then, some people think, "I'm too old to buy a house", you know, "I'm disabled and I can't buy a house"... there are different situations, and anybody can be a home owner. And you are going to pay somebody's mortgage.
Interviewer: So give me a quick synopsis, what you feel like the market is doing, where do you think it's headed?
Dorothy Jones: Well I think it's leveled off as far as pricing, and the prices will eventually creep up. I think it was more of a buyer's market, I think now it's more of a sellers market, it's turning, the tide is turning, and the properties that are under a certain price range, so 250,000 or less are going really quick.....
Interviewer: They certainly are.
Dorothy Jones: And so if the buyer isn't qualified, isn't pre-approved, then they will probably lose out on that deal.
Interviewer: Absolutely, so Dorothy where can customers reach you if they want to buy or sell a home.
Dorothy Jones: Well my direct number is 303-726-0731.
Interviewer: Okay and do you have a website then, as well, or.
Interviewer: And where is Metroplex Realtors located.
Dorothy Jones: We are located just a block east of Havana; between Dartmouth and Yale.
Interviewer: Okay, well Dorothy Jones, thank you so much for coming in, and talking with us today, it's been a pleasure.
Dorothy Jones: Yeah I appreciate for having me here thank you.
