How are we different?

Our Approach

Information Gathering

We feel our primary role is to provide our clients with the most accurate information possible.  We follow a process that drives us to ask questions about the properties our clients buy and sell.  We transfer that information to our clients in a manner that makes sense and is actionable.  Our job is to make sure you have the information available to make a decision that fits your wants and needs.

Value Oriented

1 Red Shoe realizes that one size does not fit every situation.  We strive to provide a level of service that is atypical while offering a value that is unprecedented.  Foregoing a physical office, our agents work from home.  Combine this with effective online marketing and we have found a way to reduce costs and we pass those savings to our clients.  

Client Focused

Before we can help, we want to know what you need.  Individual client needs can be unique.  We take the time to understand the person behind the transaction and determine a course of action that best helps you achieve your goal.  

Project Based/Process Management

We take a project mentality when planning your real estate transaction.  From the initial meeting to the closing table and beyond, there is a process involved with a successful sale.  Following the process and making adjustments as needed keeps us one step ahead and helps us anticipate the next move.

What's a SPOC?

We utilize a team approach with a 'slight twist'. Your agent will be your single point of contact  (SPOC) throughout your transaction.  This person will coordinate all the activities involved with the purchase or sale of your home.  Unlike the traditional real estate team model, each of our agents has a stake in your transaction.  That's 4 people looking at and discussing your project needs on a weekly basis.  You will always have a SPOC, "your go to guy" but our team puts 4 heads together to find ways to help you.  You're never out of touch and never more than a phone call away from an agent.  

Notary Services for Sellers

For our sellers, we arrange with the closing attorney to have all your documentation delivered to us.  We bring our notary out to your house and you sign your closing documents in your own home.  

Customized Real Estate Plans

Have a unique situation that may require a different approach?  We work with clients to develop customized real estate plans for their unique needs.

Michael Day - Broker/Owner

  After graduating from college in Oklahoma, Michael spent the first part of his adult career in Alaska working in the North Slope Oil fields.  Michael met his wife Kelly while on a business trip and quickly found that commuting back and forth between North Carolina and Alaska was not a viable option for him.  Michael made the career move to real estate and hasn't looked back.  

After several attempts to "fit in" with traditional real estate firms Michael decided he could provide the same level of service to his clients but he could do it in a more cost effective manner.  After years of working alone he decided to grow his company and build a team that shared his values.  He and his team are focused on providing the best experience, by providing accurate information and doing so in an efficient and cost effective manner.  He truly believes that no other company in the residential brokerage business can compete with his structure and mindset when it comes to fair and effective service.
