Do not go it alone. We're happy to provide whatever level of service you need. We customize each transaction because it's not a one size fits all. If you need a little help or a "make it happen and let me know when closing is" kinda help, we're flexible. We specialize in getting the house ready to sell and getting your family ready to move! There's lots to be done. We’ve compiled a list of things the good agents are doing all day when you’re not watching. This is the standard:
We don't just eyeball a few pretty photos, I'm looking at property taxes, schools, flood zones, year builts, other homes on the block, surveys, mortgages, historical appreciation, property lines...it's an endless list of data available to review.
Of course, there’s nothing like seeing a house in all its brick-and-mortar glory, which is why I spend tons of time driving around checking out new listings. I crawl around property, usually can find an open door, sometimes set off alarms (cops know me), it's a contact sport. Ya gotta get out there. I love love love the online resources -- sure beats how we used to do it.
BUT you don't fall in love online.
In addition to not getting paid until a deal is done, I'm investing more than just my time in making this happen. I'm hiring photographers, landscapers, painters, repair people, printers, sign installers, caterers, premium placements on listing sites, Facebook and Google ads, etc.
Not every sale goes smoothly—practically none of them do, actually. Buyers and sellers get difficult all the time, of course, this is N O R M A L.....everyone is stressed! tensions are high! everything is amplified! BUT .... I shield you from the drama. I put out fires, I smooth ruffled feathers, I take punches, I deliver a few punches back and bada bing bada bang, we're packin', we're closed.
I don’t just hand you a house. I hold the baby while you measure the closets, I convince the parents you know what you're doing, I pick you up and drive you to the houses I want you to see, I manage the other agent who melts down at least once during the transaction......none of it surprises me. For a few months, I'm your therapist, I'm making your life much less stressful and you're gonna remember that for the rest of your life.
Tell that to your therapist.
