Carolina One, South Carolina’s largest real estate brokerage, and PunchList, real estate’s leading transaction-focused home repair service, have officially launched their enhanced service partnership.
As part of their integration, Carolina One clients and agents will be able to obtain PunchList repair estimates within 24 hours, plus get priority access to licensed contractors and dedicated support personnel should they elect to complete the repairs indicated in the estimate.
According to Carolina One President Michael Scarafile, the partnership alleviates a significant pain point in the real estate transaction.
“Carolina One is at the forefront of improving the overall experience, not only for the real estate professional, but for the home buyer and seller,” said Scarafile. “We’re excited to roll out our new partnership with PunchList. They’ve done a great job in pairing technology with quality contractors to transform the home repair experience.”
For PunchList Founder & CEO Rich Estes, the partnership with Carolina One is the natural extension of his repair outfit’s ongoing work with Carolina One agents.
“With Charleston being our home base, we’ve had the privilege of building relationships with many Carolina One real estate agents over the past few years”, said Estes. “We’re excited to formally extend our offering to all Carolina One agents, provide them with enhanced service, and simplify the real estate transaction for home buyers and sellers in our community.”
The agreement also provides the brokerage with priority access to PunchList’s Pre-Listing Evaluation and Repair service, which promptly identifies and removes the defects that are all-but-guaranteed to complicate the home sale before a property is listed.
“It’s not uncommon in our industry for a house to be listed and go under contract, only to have all sides left wondering what the home inspection might reveal,” continued Scarafile. “With PunchList’s pre-inspection solution, we all-but-eliminate the chance of a transaction falling through due to an inspection.”
“Improving the experience on the buyer and seller side is where the industry is headed. We find PunchList to be a great company solving pressing needs in the real estate industry and we’re excited to be in business with them.”
