Get to know Rita Fong
My name is Rita Fong and I am a bilingual real estate agent and Executive Broker with RE/MAX REAL ESTATE TODAY in Marion, Ar., I speak Chinese (Cantonese) and English. I joined RE/MAX in February, 2007 and it has been an exciting journey ever since. I am a dedicated full time real estate agent for my clients in Marion, West Memphis, and Crittenden County in Arkansas.
I was asked many times about my background after I came to the States. I would like to give you a brief history of mine when I was living in Hong Kong. I was born and raised in Hong Kong, which is a very fast paced city like Manhattan, New York. Doesn't it look like New York?
I went to Roman Catholic school there, and Hong Kong was under the British Government rule until 1997, then it was given back to China. I was working in travel industry, my clients were all from overseas like the USA, Australia, some also from Europe. You can say I always work in people business, and very used to multi culture. With my background of a little bit from the British rule, overseas clients, my own root as a Chinese, I am very diverse, if I do say so myself.
I work hard for my clients, and I am privileged that I earned their trust to help them with their real estate needs, no matter sell or buy. I don't treat anyone as a number, real estate is a people business, it takes time to learn about each other, it is a team work. Getting referral from my clients is a high compliment from them.

Other than working, I love to go to browse antique stores, I don't do it often though. I enjoy outdoors when time allows. I like to enjoy a cup of hot tea and some tasty light snacks, got that from my British influence in Hong Kong. I like to go to bookstores, too. I am also a CASA volunteer, http://www.crittendencountycasa.org/ It is a non-profit organization to help abused and neglected children, and I am a Court Appointed Special Advocate for the child of my case that I was appointed to. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please feel free to contact me or visit the website.

Provided useful and helpful information to all my clients, especially first time buyers to get on the right track before applying for a mortgage loan, following up with my prospects and walk them through the pre-buying process is what I am really good at. I am willing to help and work with prospects who have hard times understanding the home buying process, and in return they became my clients.
Preparing my sellers about the "reality" of our local house market, explain to them what buyers are looking for, let them know ahead of time what to expect when an offer comes in. My goal is to sell their home for them, and keep them on the same page with me as the process goes, try my best to keep their level of anxiety down.
Real Estate transactions can be very complexed sometimes, my goal is to keep all my clients as calm as possible. There are things happened unexpectedly sometimes, it can be beyond my expectation also, but with my experience and willing to tackle the challenges, I take good care of my clients, get the transaction closed, and that's my priority.

My husband and I had been considering moving to Marion for about a year, and finally one Sunday afternoon we decided to drive over to look at open houses since we didn't know any of the realtors in the area. We met Rita Fong at one of the open houses that Re/Max had listed. She was the only realtor we saw out that day AND she was out working with an injured leg. It didn't take long for us to develop a connection with her. This was our first home purchase and we were very nervous, but Rita quickly put us at ease. She was SO kind and approachable . With her injured leg, she led us to house after house that very day! We didn't find the house we wanted that day, so Rita said she would research other listings & email them to us. She sent the email before bedtime that night. It was amazing to me how she deciphered through all the listings in Marion, and after only spending one afternoon with us she knew EXACTLY what we would and wouldn't like. By the end of the same week, we had arranged a day to tour more houses. We found the house we wanted and 30 days later we closed! She made what most people describe as a stressful situation go as smooth as butter! She was eager to answer all of our questions, and there were many! There were some days that I called her so many times & she was so sweet each time. My family & I are eternally grateful that we met her that day! It has been three months since we moved into our home and Rita continues to check in with us to make sure we are still happy! I'm glad that she does because I actually missed getting to talk to her after closing! I knew that we would find a new home, but I didn't expect to find a new friend.
THANK YOU, RITA FONG! You helped us find our dream home!"
