Ivey Ramsey has spent more than 20 years doing what she loves best...making people happy.
"You could say I'm a people-pleaser by nature, and my customers motivate me to excel," says this dedicated Realtor who has helped hundreds of families and individuals put their roots down in Fort Worth. "The relationships and friendships formed in the course of buying and selling real estate are the greatest reward."
Throughout her career as a Top Producer, Ivey has demonstrated her heart for service and drive to go the extra mile to help her clients.
Like the time she organized and ran an estate sale for an heir who preferred to go on safari. Then she gave the proceeds to a needy family when the heir refused to accept any of the profits or unsold items.
Or the time she had to coax the young son of a client off the roof of a home. The little boy had his fill of looking at houses that day, so he climbed a fence, shimmied up a tree and jumped onto the roof where he began to throw pecans at the home's owner.
There are many more tales and even more happy endings that illustrate Ivey's commitment to her customers in the face of any challenge. Even the times she has overseen the mover's placement of furniture, had a home cleaned, facilitated repairs or planted flowers to spruce up a landscape are countless.
"Real estate can be very stressful, and by its nature our tasks cross over into many sensitive areas," says Ivey. "It's the truth that we often have to be marriage counselors, psychologists and advisors more often than I ever dreamed."
While Ivey's experience has touched a broad range of emotional and logistical needs, the foundation of her business is her rock solid real estate expertise. With a background in residential and commercial interior design and construction, she provides her clients with the most comprehensive, value added service possible.
A resident of Fort Worth since 1976, Ivey works with an intuitive knowledge of every neighborhood and price point and is one of the best in the market when it comes to recognizing a smart buy in a proven or emerging area. And she always has the most detailed market analysis report to support her wise recommendations.
