Finally, a real estate agent who understands exactly what you want
It took almost 20 years and over 50 personal real estate transactions to fully understand what was missing when it came to ensuring I had the best agent representing me on the purchases and sales of our personal properties.
Many times there seemed to be a gap between what I and my realtor thought the property was worth. I felt I had to sell them on my price and they were trying to sell me on theirs. Even worse, after agreeing to list my property I’d question if the agent took on my listing because they believed they could sell it near the asking price or if they were just using it to attract potential buyers for other properties. Over the years I have worked with many amazing professional Realtors but it was those few bad apples that left a sour taste in my mouth about the industry.
It’s all about the transaction ... or is it?
As a buyer or seller you’re pretty much looking for a realtor that can get you the best price or top dollar. Imagine if you had a realtor that gave you 100% confidence in their knowledge of the current market and had master negotiating skills but most importantly worked with honesty and integrity, someone you could trust 100%. You knew he or she only had your best interests in mind and did whatever it took to help you find the perfect home, not just settle for one that somewhat met your needs. How about selling your home with an informative and compassionate professional calm approach while still getting top dollar?
Don't under estimate how stressful it may be to buy or sell...
Buying or selling should be a serious, but enjoyable process. However, it's easy to get confused with what to expect. How many showings will you have on your home? How many times will you have to get it ready for for a stranger who may or may not be interested in buying it? What will it eventually sell for? And will you net enough from the sale to meet your goals? Perhaps you already purchased and you now have your back up against the wall and every showing feels like it’s your last shot, only to get disappointing feedback, or even worse, no feedback at all.
Trust me, I been there and I get it...
As a mentor to other realtors and a successful real estate investor who broke through price ceilings multiple times my principles are simple; treat my client like I would my mother. Would you let your mother overpay for a property, or leave money on the table by underselling her home for less than its potential? How about sitting across the table from her knowing you haven’t put your full effort into selling or finding her the perfect home? I believe relationships are more important than a single "transaction". Realtors need to be more focused on building long term relationships with their customers rather than focusing on the transaction. This principle will always guide them to do the right thing and will always deliver the desired result.
My operating philosophy is to only work with someone to buy or sell if I believe I can accomplish what is being asked of me. Your goals are my goals. I live by the saying, "believe and act as it is impossible to fail" and this has always guided me to achieve every challenge put before me.
Whether you are looking to buy the perfect home for yourself or your family or sell your home for top dollar or even if you are looking to create wealth in real estate, I can help.
During our initial meeting I will share all the strategies I've used over the last fifteen years to negotiate the best price when buying and command top dollar when selling.
Admittedly, I am busy with past clients and their wonderful referrals. However, I do make some time each month to meet new potential clients. If you'd like to discuss your situation reach out to me using the form on this page and I'll respond personally.
