An Introductory Piece to Prospective Clients
CHOOSE YOUR REAL ESTATE AGENT WISELY!
Real estate agents have a variety of backgrounds and personalities. How do you choose an agent that will serve you well?
If you are a seller, you most likely want to get the highest price for your property within a given time frame, want access to qualified buyers who are serious about buying, need tips to make your home more marketable and require help in developing and implementing a successful marketing plan.
Buyers need agents who know the neighborhoods well, can match buyer price range with dream-home requirements, have quick access to inventory, possess proven coping mechanisms to deal with demanding sellers, know what to look for in homes and can help them obtain financing, if needed.
In both cases excellent communication, superb negotiating skills, keeping the transaction on track, introduction to capable and vetted service providers and the ability to avoid legal chaos are musts!
An agent who meets these requirements and you are comfortable working with is your best recipe for a most satisfying real estate experience.
