While buying a home remains one of the biggest investments a person will make in his or her life, there’s always a lingering fear that something may go wrong soon after the purchase. Though home inspections may catch most of these problems before they occur, what happens if a major system or appliance goes haywire shortly after closing? This is where home warranties come into play. With a home warranty in place, buyers, sellers and the agents involved can rest assured that if there’s a mechanical failure of a major system, the system will have potential coverage under the warranty contract. And who wouldn’t want a home warranty as a safety net, alleviating potential stress and making sure the new home is ready for new, positive memories?
HSA Home Warranty provides this protection. A renowned home warranty service provider since 1984, HSA is known for its top-notch service and dedication to its clients. Kevin Levent, president and CEO of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers in Atlanta, Ga., began his relationship with HSA in 1996 upon joining the Better Homes and Gardens real estate network. His longstanding relationship with HSA goes to show just how highly he and his entire firm regard home warranties.
“The warranty may help to limit the buyer’s exposure to possible unknown expenses,” says Levent. “While most transactions require nearly all the cash most buyers have, limiting future expenses is important.”
In 1996, Levent had almost 600 agents. Today, his company stands at about 1,900 agents. “All of them like HSA Home Warranty and the local sales representatives, Fran Stiakakis and Tammy Dale, who provide a level of service that exceeds our expectations.”
In addition to relieving buyers’ anxieties, Levent says that having a warranty on their listings goes a long way toward strengthening their marketing efforts. “Promoting a listing with a warranty attached gives Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers a little extra flair when trying to allure buyers to fall in love with a home,” says Levent, who goes on to explain that HSA’s service has been “phenomenal.”
“Between their alignment with my agents, their competitive pricing and the product itself, it’s been as good of a relationship that you can ask for when it comes to a service provider,” he says.
Levent says many of his agents even use the company’s products for their personal homes as well, speaking volumes of how they revere the value of an HSA home warranty.
In an industry that moves at lightning speed, with ongoing deals that are constantly in flux, Levent has never considered seeking home warranty services elsewhere.
“I would definitely recommend HSA for their integrity and commitment to fulfilling their promises. There’s been no reason to shop for a different supplier, or even to attempt to change. After 20 years, I think that’s a pretty decent testament.”
