Why Hire a Professional Realtor

Statistics show that selling your home with the assistance of a professional real estate agent will garner you a higher profit, enough to cover the commission as well as put more money in your pocket. According to the National Association of Realtors 2016 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, the average For Sale By Owner sales price was $185,000, while the average price for a home represented by an agent was $245,000. That's a difference of $60,000! Here are 5 reasons why FSBO fails!

My name is Bridget Kipta and I have been a licensed Real Estate agent since 2004. I grew up in Lake County, Indiana and I currently reside in Chesterton, Porter County Indiana since 2006.  Working with buyers and sellers from Lowell to LaPorte has given me extensive expertise throughout the region.

I'm known for being personable with firm negotiating skills. Also known for going the extra mile (I once attended a town meeting in Beverly Shores during a blizzard, so my Chicago clients could build their dream home). Most of my business comes from referrals, which I consider high compliments. Happy, satisfied customers are what I pride myself on, as well as working with first-time home buyers.

Spent many years volunteering my time as a Girl Scout Leader, when my daughter was young. My family was also involved with swimming and 4H. Now that I'm a grandma of three boys, I love to spend time cooking, teaching them to swim and making holidays memorable.

Portage has always been home to me. I grew up in town and still reside there. I attended Valparaiso University for Theatre and Vocal Performance. I always had an interest in the real estate field; my friends and I would drive around and look at all the different houses. I heard about an opportunity with Listing Leaders to become an agent and after learning about its flexibility, I was hooked. Outside of work, you can catch me hiking trails and spending time outdoors. Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, I’ll do whatever it takes to ensure you’re confident and comfortable during the entire real estate process.
