PROFESSIONAL REALTOR® DESIGNATION
All real estate agents are not created equal. Only those agents who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. I am required to follow a strict code of ethics and expected to maintain a high level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. In other words, if you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be foolish to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a REALTOR®.
Short Sales and Loan Modifications are in great demand to avoid foreclosure. I am certified in both and have had great success. Call me for your options. It is very important to get help from an experienced and qualified professional. CALL ME TODAY!!!
JUST LIKE OLD FRIENDS!
I want you to feel comfortable! Just like old friends who are able to sit down and talk! I want to be able to serve you, but I will never hound you for your business. I like to work with people who see that a REALTOR® brings value to the table! I hope that you will feel free to contact me and not feel pressured or obligated in any way.
When we evaluate your home for sale, your consultation may include suggestions on low-cost improvements that could significantly increase the value or marketability of your home.
Before I sit down with you to talk about pricing your home, I will prepare a Comparative Market Analysis that consists of active, pending and recently sold properties in your neighborhood. I feel it is important to price your house "right" so we can achieve the goal of getting your home sold! (Did you know that if you are 10% too high in pricing, you lose 30% of the prospective buyers that would view your home? That's why pricing is IMPORTANT! ) You have to make the decision on that, but it is my job to give you the best information possible to help you make the "right" decision.
Working with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Cooper & Co.Inc., REALTORS® has given me many advantages in helping my customers get their properties sold. We have great strategies that help motivate buyers to make a purchase decision. Highlighting your properties best features will help to bring in the top dollar offer!!
I often work with clients who come to me because they had a bad experience with another agent. To my amazement, by far the top complaint I hear is that their (past) agent had little or no communication with them.
I make the following commitments to each and every client:
Being available for calls - If I'm not in a meeting, my cell phone is on. If you get my voicemail, leave a message and I WILL return your call.
Providing feedback after each showing – I will do my best to provide you with feedback when your house is shown. Communications between agents is not always what it should be, but I will do my best give you feedback about your showings.
Delivering progress reports on a consistent basis - BHHS has a wonderful tool called Online Seller Advantage to help you stay informed about your property. You will receive automatic updates weekly to help you know the number of times your home has been viewed with online searches. It also lets you know what other properties are listed and sold in your area so you can keep up with the competition and make good decisions about price changes when necessary.
The Code establishes time-honored and baseline principles that come from the collective experiences of REALTORS® since the Code of Ethics was first established in 1913. Those principles can be loosely defined as:
Loyalty to clients;
Fiduciary (legal) duty to clients;
Cooperation with competitors;
Truthfulness in statements and advertising;
and non-interference in exclusive relationships that other REALTORS® have with their clients.
