CAPE GAZETTE, Thursday, December 24 - December 30, 1998 - 45 Cape Region Realtor offers no strings attached approach to her business By Jen EUingsworth As an entrepreneur, Realtor Sandra Ware said she tries to stay ahead of the trends. A Realtor with Century 21 Mann & Moore Associates Inc. of Rehoboth Beach, Ware said she's come up with the best way she knows of offering satisfaction- guaranteed Service to her clients. Basically, she said, if clients are not 100-percent satisfied with re- sults, she'll give back her com- mission. No strings attached. Ware said her brainstorm idea came as a way to attract attention to her professionalism and dedi- cation. "I'm trying to set a higher stan- dard," she said. "I want to let the client know that I am totally com- mitted to them and to the commu- nity." Being committed to the com- munity is something that Ware, the mother of seven children and grandmother of another seven, is very familiar. The current presi- dent of the Cape Henlopen High School Parent-Teacher Organiza- tion, she said she's always been active in her community and with the schools and that she plans to keep it that way. Last year, she donated $1,000 to scholarships for Cape district students. Realizing that her customers will be the judge, Ware said she understands that choosing a real estate agent to help buy or sell a home is probably one of life's biggest decisions. Ware said her "satisfaction guaranteed or commission back" policy is one way she intends to send the message to clients that she's serious about the business of real estate.

"There are so many people'vho want to live here," she said. "Many of them are fresh buyers, people who don't live here and are unfamiliar with the area. I want to be the agent that they feel com- fortable talking with. It [buying a home] is probably the largest purchase someone's going to make and it takes a lot of decision-making. I want to pro- vide them with the best quality that I can and the highest level of professionalism." Ware, a licensed Realtor for three years, was also self-em- ployed as a retail executive for eight years. She said being in the Long Neck Back Bay Center wins preliminary approval from Sussex By Michael Short A new, large shopping center for the Long Neck area has won preliminary approval from Sussex County. The Long Neck Back Bay Cen- terto be located off routes 24 and 299, just west of Long Neck Road, received preliminary site plan ap- proval from Sussex County Plan- ning and Zoning on Thursday, Dec. 17. Final site plan approval is still needed, but that is not usually a significant obstacle. Mike Zimmerman of BBC Properties is developing the ap- proximately 22-acre parcel, which will contain approximately 65,000 square feet of what he calls "neighborhood shopping." That means stores to serve the surrounding area, rather than large stores which attract shoppers from a great distance. "It's just basically for shopping right in the neighborhood," ac- cording to Zimmerman. Plans call for development of approximately 13-acres now with the potential to develop another 30,000 square feet of retail shopping and hous- ing, including senior housing, in the future. business of sales for so long has afforded her the opportunity to gain experience in the finer points of customer service. "As an entrepreneur, you've got to set yourself apart," she said. "You demand the best and I'm go- ing to show you the best that's_out there.'" For information, call Ware at 227-9477.
