Welcome to the Van Slavens Group

Higher Standards - Better Results


Our Mission Statement: “Deliver the Best Possible Experience”

After you close on a home, most people don't remember the fine details of a Real Estate transaction. Most people do however remember the journey, the emotion associated with buying and selling a home, they definitely remember the experience. Lets work together to make your experience exceptional!

Core Values:

  • Set a Higher Standard - We set the bar high for ourselves in every way. From the first interaction to post closing support, we focus on every detail along the way. Having a higher internal standard creates a better result for you and that is what matters the most.
  • Be Consumer Centric - The only way to deliver the best possible experience is to make every effort to view the real estate process from a consumer point of view. This philosophy ensures decisions are made in the interest of our clients.
  • Operate Transparent - There is a lot of smoke and mirrors within the real estate industry. Our dedication to a transparent process builds trust, confidence and ultimately a better result.
  • Own the Process - The real estate transaction has a lot of moving parts. We have processes in place for each phase of the real estate transaction. These processes help us avoid most issues and when problems do come up…. we have a process for that too.

"I am not sure where to begin because Jerry was/is the ideal agent. He took all of our thoughts and considerations into account and provided us with the ideal property that suited us and was well within our budget. Jerry was very knowledgeable about the area we wanted stay in and provided us with a list of homes that were narrowed down to the features that we asked for. HE LISTENED and that is very rare these days! The responsiveness of Jerry was spot on! Whenever we contacted him via phone or email, he was readily available and was able to address any of our concerns. He took the bull by the horns and got us under contract on an REO home in less than a week. That is very rare considering the amount of time it takes for the asset managers to sign these contracts. All we can say is Jerry was on top of this from the moment we chose the home to the moment we closed. Great all around person and very likeable! He comes HIGHLY recommended by us! Great Job Jerry you rock!"

"We my wife and I first met Jerry; we had already had some bad experiences with the wrong realtors. These realtors just did not understand or get our needs vs wants and seemed only to care about their bottom line. After striking out a few times, being showed the wrong house repeatedly, a family member, who spoke good things about him, finally referred us to Jerry. As skeptical as we were, he was very attentive, asked us what we were looking for, needs, area we were most interested in, and was very patient and attentive. As a first time homebuyer, my wife and I had tons of questions. Jerry made it his personal business to educate us and keep us pointed down the correct path. Where other realtors seemed to careless. After a couple months of looking for that "House", we found it. Jerry was able to correspond with us, my broker and the previous owner's realtor to make sure the process went smoothly. If you are looking for that go-getter, Jerry is your realtor. "

Jerry was very patient with me and helped communicate better with the lender. His previous knowledge and experience in the mortgage industry was invaluable. Jerry was very proactive keeping me informed in the process and also protecting my interests. I seriously doubt the deal would have been completed if it weren't for him.
