A new firm ... with considerable experience

In fact, we began business early in February, 2004 ... but we bring more than a century of real estate experience in The Territory, Historic Galena and the surrounding market area.

Created by the new owners of the Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa, Preferred Properties at Eagle Ridge is the only onsite real estate brokerage associated with the Eagle Ridge Inn and Resort.

“The new company is known as Preferred Properties because that’s what we sell and what our customers expect from us,” Betty Fields, the firm’s managing broker said when she opened the office. “Our goal is to meet the needs of the growing group of customers who are attracted to the Galena area and The Territory.”

Betty has put together a staff of 15 professionals ... whose collective experience totals more than 100 years in real estate in The Territory and Historic Galena.

Part of the local fabric...

Our agents all live locally. They are active in school and church groups, managing and playing on local sports teams and participating in local government – they are part of the fabric of the wonderful communities which make up The Territory, Historic Galena and surrounding communities.

They bring a grass-roots appreciation for the historic importance of this lovely area they all call home.

We’ve got a strong point of view ... we want to help you.
We specifically designed the firm to provide the highest degree of quality service for our clients and customers. How? The new Eagle Ridge ownership deliberately integrated Preferred Properties into the resort operations. This enables us to take full advantage of a more widespread advertising plan, cutting-edge industry tools and the newest technology (including virtual tours of every listed property) while also granting us greater exposure to guests than currently available to other area real estate offices and agents.

Professionalism that benefits you.

Our experience has shown us that whether your goal is to buy your primary residence, a second home getaway or an investment property, the process of buying or selling can present challenges ... and is not always pleasurable.

If you are selling a property, we’ll develop and be guided by a marketing plan designed to attract the maximum number of potential purchasers while minimizing unnecessary stress and inconvenience.

If you are buying a property, you’ll be greeted with progress reports and updates on the latest news. You will find our associates anticipate your questions ... and that they are available on your timetable to answer promptly and factually your questions and concerns.

Each of our associates and support staff is a full-time licensed realtor who recognizes that empathy is one of their most important strengths.

Experience that counts.

In fact the combined years of service from our skilled professionals and staff totals more than a century ... but our point of view is thoroughly modern. We are familiar with local retail, professional, community, banking and financing sources. We are part of the fabric and culture of this historic and welcoming area. Many of our associates were here at the very beginning, selling the first homesites at the Galena Territory when unpaved roads led to mere dreams of future golf courses ... and getting around was a muddy endeavor at best.

And we are here today to provide you a professional real estate service based on just that ... local experience that counts.
