First time home buyers and experienced homeowners alike – we help simplify the home buying experience.
Buying a home can be a complicated process – especially if it is your first time. A simple internet search will bombard you with different financing options, real estate agents, homes, and resources.
At T.R. McKenzie, our real estate team was born out of creating a simplified process behind buying a home. Our Realtors® work with you to create a customized home buying experience, getting to know you and what your needs are. We will help you get started, explain the buying and selling process, what to expect along the way, and how to make your offer stand out.
Madison Real Estate Company
TRM’s Home Buyer Program
If you live in the Madison area, you may have heard of T.R. McKenzie Apartments. We developed the TRM Home Buyer Program to help residents of our apartments transition into home ownership. Timing purchasing a home around when your lease ends can be difficult and expensive. If you rent at one of our properties for at least six month and decide to work with one of our Realtors®, you will be released from your lease when you purchase you home (some exclusions apply).
Short Term Lease Program
Seeing the success of the home buyer program, we realized it isn’t only renters who have a hard time lining up closing dates on transactions. One of the hardest parts of moving from one home to another is coordinating the dates. We launched the short term lease program to give buyers and sellers a temporary place to stay at one of our Madison area apartments if they use our Realtors to sell their existing home and purchase a new home. The short term lease program has also helped clients remove their home sale contingency when developing their offer.
Development and New Construction
T.R. McKenzie has developed land, built custom homes, condos, and multi-family apartments, and managed several rental properties in the Madison area for over 25 years. We have a wealth of knowledge and unique experience for buyers interested in vacant land to build on or land owners looking to sell or develop.
Knowing what is currently happening in the Dane County real estate market can help you prepare to sell your home or know what to look for when buying. With the ever-changing market, it’s important to understand current trends and real time local data.
We are currently selling single family homes, condos, and ready-to-build vacant land. Check out our featured properties here.
