Gori, Realtors starts property sales and management operations in Edwardsville

gorirealtorsEDWARDSVILLE — A new real estate company, Gori, Realtors, plans to begin listing, selling and leasing commercial, single-family and multi-family real estate throughout the Metro East.

The company also plans to provide full-service property management. Located at 224 South Main St. in downtown Edwardsville, Gori, Realtors will be led by Lois Pontius, managing broker.

Pontius has more than 30 years of sales and marketing experience, the last 10 in the real estate industry as an annual multi-million-dollar producer. She is joined by Kristina Howard and Stan Pontius, licensed broker associates.

Gori, Realtors is owned by local attorney, Randy Gori, who has invested in several properties in the downtown Edwardsville area.

“The Metro East has so much to offer in terms of quality of life, making this area a wonderful place to call home. Ample housing options in different price categories coupled with the small-town feel of the communities that make up the Metro East make this a region worth looking at when it comes to choosing a location to raise a family,” Gori said.

Gori said he wants Gori, Realtors to follow in the footsteps of Gori Julian & Associates “and help make this community even stronger. That’s why we are offering full-service real estate services for both commercial and residential properties.”

Gori Property Management, which will be a subsidiary of Gori, Realtors, is aimed at property owners looking to work with a professional leasing manager. It will be available seven days a week for property showings. Services include providing assistance with marketing properties, screening prospective tenants, customizing leases and collecting rent. Other services offered include accounting, bookkeeping, profit and loss statements, mortgage and bill payment, and 24-hour emergency maintenance services.

Pontius said, “We know that busy property owners often do not have time to be responsive to the needs of renters and tenants. It is our pleasure to take over day-to-day management duties from owners of apartments, single and multi-family homes, and retail spaces, so that owners can reap the benefits of property ownership without needing to juggle the needs of tenants. Tenants can enjoy responsive, attentive management services and the peace of mind that comes with having their needs met quickly by our professional property management team.”
