Another record-setting sale shows market on the rise!


The Salem News

---- — Tache Real Estate is proud to announce the recent sale of 11 Rear Winter Island Road, in the Salem Willows neighborhood of Salem.

This rare oceanfront new construction was certainly a property to watch on the local market, and Eric Towne of Tache was the catalyst to make the sale.

“Our buyer-clients were ultimately successful in this purchase, as they were educated with accurate data analysis, armed with knowledge and experience and perfectly poised with a comprehensive negotiating strategy,” Towne said.

Offering water views throughout most of the 3,500 square feet across three levels, this is an entertainer’s paradise, boasting wide-open spaces and two 24-foot decks and patio overlooking Juniper Cove.

Don’t let the record-setting sale price fool you; the Towne Buyer Team patiently prepared, studying its target of waterfront property from here to Newburyport, to best prepare the buyer-clients for success. The end result was a $42,000 savings for the clients.

Towne reports, “Despite this being the highest ‘Willows’ sale in decades, these educated consumers are thrilled in their purchase, knowing they have paid no more than what it is worth, regardless of the asking price.”

Buyers Brian and Erin are thrilled to recommend Towne due to his professional service and unsurpassed experience. “Purchasing our home was one of the biggest decisions of our lives because we wanted a ‘forever home,’ not just a transitional property. Eric’s knowledge and expertise of the market, not just in Salem but all along the coast, gave us the confidence to make educated decisions, which made it an exciting time, rather than a stressful one. Eric was different from other Realtors we had worked with because of his ability to think outside the box and come up with creative ideas we had never considered. We really appreciated how he reached out to us just enough to let us know he didn’t forget about us, but not so much as to make us feel pressured.”

As another client put it, “there is no better buyer-agent in the business.” Towne has helped this client with four purchases in only twice as many years.

Complete client advocacy is the underlying cornerstone for Tache’s success. “Many folks don’t realize that they are owed the same fiduciary commitment from their real estate agent, as they expect from their doctor or attorney.” Following Towne’s personal “Six-Step Success Strategy” for homebuying, the entire process flowed together seamlessly for the mutual success of all involved.

And this is nothing new at Tache, with the recent sales of not only 1 Island Ave., but also 3 Island Ave. in the Salem Willows.

Additionally, last year, Towne achieved the highest oceanfront sale price in seven years on Lothrop Street in Beverly at $1.225 million. While that was an unadulterated antique, with this most recent sale, Towne’s expertise in new construction was of great benefit to the buyer, as he has personally assisted with hundreds of new construction home sales throughout the North Shore.

As with most things in life, experience is the key to success. Towne has been personally involved in more than 850 successful sales since 1993, which averages about one each week — for 20 years! Very few North Shore agents can provide that level of invaluable insight to seller-clients and buyer-clients alike.

As Salem’s only second-generation, family-run real estate company, Tache Real Estate is proudly vested in the communities they serve on Boston’s North Shore. With more than 323 sales in 2012 (about one each day!), nobody is more experienced to represent your best interests.

“We’re family, and we’re here to help!”
