Seventeen years of research came to a pinnacle for Sylvan Lake resident Pat Garritty earlier this month as he released a pair of books aimed at guiding individuals through the process of buying and selling a home.

The local real estate agent explained he has been gathering information for his books since he began his real estate career in 2000. After a successful career in sales and marketing, Garritty made the transition to the real estate industry. In 2009 Garritty joined forces with local real estate agent Jim Jardine to form Trilliant Real Estate Group.

At the end of February, Garritty released ‘What Every Person Needs To Know About Buying A House’ and ‘What What Every Person Needs To Know About Selling A House’. He explained the books are a culmination of his experiences over the last seventeen years and added he hopes they will serve as a definitive resource for individuals navigating their way through the often tumultuous world of real estate. The books offer a number of insider secrets and step-by-step strategies which Garritty has spent years developing.

“These are consumer guides,” said Garritty. “This isn’t a book that’s going to keep you riveted page by page but it’s a really factual, nice flowing, logical way to work with both buying and selling houses.”

He explained the books break down everything from how to set your home in the most appealing manner as well as how to properly price your home.

“This is really a how to guide. If you wanted to sell your home on your own, you could use this book step-by-step to do so in an effective manner,” he added. “We believe in this process we’ve created. I’ve been immersed in this for the last 17 years. We’re proud of what we’ve got here and the impact it will hopefully have on consumers.”

Both books are available online free of cost through www.trilliant.ca.
