We are excited to announce that Jim and Jamie Hegemier of The Hegemier Team of Leslie Wells Realty are now recognized by the National Association of Realtors as certified New Home Construction and Buyer Representatives.  This provides our customers with the knowledge and expertise combined with our professional experience in building the perfect dream home. These days it’s not enough as a consumer just to walk into a new model home center without representation and make what is generally known as the largest investment a consumer will make.  There happens to be a ton of due-diligence to be done and a prospective new home buyer needs a team mate or two; and that’s where the Hegemier Team comes in.

What if the developer is the builder, the loan originator, the title company (and sometimes more) all within the same company?  Are you prepared to go it alone with companies with that much power?  Doesn’t that seem a little one sided that they can be all of that and still represent your interest?  Sometimes it takes more than luck.  Sometimes it takes a team. We want you to know we are here for you.  We can help you find the...
