differenceLet Bert and Mary Staton guide you through the complexities of buying and/or selling a

After the collapse of the US economy and real estate market in 2008, a number of small hometown real estate firms throughout the country merged with some of the largest nationally owned and operated real estate franchises in order to survive as ongoing entities. Equally as hard hit was the appraisal profession with the overhaul of the mortgage lending industry and the passage of the Dodd-Frank legislation leading to the rise of large-scale nationwide appraisal management companies (AMCs), most of which, are owned by some of the largest banking institutions in the world.

As a result of these major life-changing events, the decision was made to transform Alamance Appraisals into a real estate firm, and in 2010 Black Diamond Real Estate was formed to help fill the void of only having a few locally owned and operated small real estate firms specializing in personal customer service.

Because Black Diamond Real Estate is a husband and wife team with more than 40 years of combined real estate experience, we are ideally positioned to serve our clients since we have an advantage when it comes to connecting with both our female and male clients alike. What this means to both our sellers and buyers is we have the ability to better understand your needs and motivations in helping negotiate the best deal in the sale or purchase of your home.

Because we are a small firm by design, we are personally involved in every step of the buying and selling process, from listings to showings and from contracts to closings. When you have any questions, you deal directly with us, not an assistant or closing coordinator typically used by agents in larger real estate firms. By handling the selling and buying process ourselves, we eliminate any unnecessary confusion or communication duplication with how things are progressing, without involving third parties who often don’t know about recent changing circumstances that transpire during the inspection and negotiation process.

With Bert and Mary Staton on your side, you will be hiring professional REALTORs® who possess the background, credentials, experience, and knowledge to help identify and understand current market conditions to assist you in making an informed decision with the sale or purchase of your next home or real estate investment.
