Since earning his Real Estate license in 1998, Jon Decker has proven himself to be among the Top Realtors of Hampton Roads. Jon’s reputation for professionalism and his ability to accommodate all of his client’s needs makes the complicated process of buying or selling a home as simple as possible. As a second generation Realtor, Jon’s integrity, compassion, and knowledge of Real Estate run deep within. Decker Realty Corporation was founded by Jon’s father Tom Decker back in 1975. With Tom’s hard work and determination he grew a small local company into a commanding network of professional real estate specialist. In 1991 The Decker Realty Corporation strategically positioned itself with a brand known around the world Prudential Real Estate. Prudential Decker Realty continued as an influential force in Hampton Roads with a rock solid reputation and a relocation network throughout the country and beyond. In the summer of 2000, Jon’s father Tom lost his courageous fight against cancer and passed away. His connection to the Real Estate Community is still evident today as stories of his professionalism and ethics are a common occurrence. Jon and his brother Trey Decker continued the tradition of excellence in real estate service and sales as Prudential Decker Realty bloomed into their father’s dream. In 2008 an opportunity to incorporate three fantastic real estate companies all with impressive credentials and innovative management teams presented itself to Prudential Decker Realty. In January 2009 Prudential Decker Realty, Prudential McCardell Real Estate and Goodman Segar Hogan (GSH Real Estate, owned by Towne Bank), joined forces as Prudential Towne Realty. Prudential Towne Realty has been the leading Real Estate Firm in the area and has the highest average sales price per agent of all the firms in this market place. In January 2015, Prudential Towne Realty became BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY HomeServices TOWNE REALTY.

Information for Sellers

At Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Towne Realty we believe there are 6 key steps to a successful home sale. All of these duties and responsibilities assure you experience a successful sale. This means your home selling experience will be on time, with the fewest problems and at the best price. 

  1. Enhance – Increasing Value and Appeal
    Packaging a home for profit will increase the buyer appeal, value and get the sold sign up faster! When selling a home, the old adage “you only get one chance to make a first impression” could not be more accurate. Buyers buy emotionally and if you capture their hearts you will capture their offers. My job is to show you how to build that emotional connection and increase your bottom line. I will show you how to create the “Model Effect”, work with you to create an Action Item List, and give you strategies for effective buyer showing and open houses.
  2. Best List Price – Results in Highest Sales Price
    Pricing is trickier than it appears and is a real balancing act. Get it right and you are on your way. Get it wrong and you scare buyers away, lose money and the valuable “Golden Time”. You need to think not with your emotions, but with accurate market information that is expertly interpreted. I provide an extensive market study and apply a proven pricing strategy.
  3. Total Exposure – More Showings!
    There is a lot more to marketing than the tradition of putting up a sign, placing an ad, putting it in the MLS and on the internet and waiting for good things to happen. I use a blend of traditional and aggressive target marketing.  It is a coordinated three prong strategy that creates more showings and the best sales price.
  4. Worry Free – Managing the Details
    There are a lot of moving parts in a real estate transaction and things can go amiss if there is a lack of attention to detail. I will act as your project manager, managing all the details and eliminating problems before they arise. This essential step assures the entire selling process is worry free.
  5. Work with a Quality Company – Highest Quality Service
    When you hire an agent, you also hire a company. A company’s culture reflects how their clients are treated and the quality of the service it delivers. These are the qualities that attracted me to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Towne Realty and why I feel I bring a quality company to you. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Towne Realty matches my values, mirrors my philosophy, is innovate, is full service and has market success.
  6. Trusted Advisor – Protecting Your Interests
    A seller should have someone who they trust, have confidence in and will help them make good decisions. You can count on me to be a trusted advisor, a consultant educating and guiding versus a typical salesperson selling and pressuring. My Seller and their best interests are my TOP priority.
