Full-service Realtor Backed By Experience, Results, and Committment to My Clients
In life there are often defining moments. For me, it was when I met my wife, when my daughter was born, and when my daughter recently got married. I have been in real estate over half my life, and there have been defining moments in my career as well. The first happened before I became a Realtor. It was advice I received from one of the top Bay Area real estate agents. His honesty, work ethic and hustle brought success to him and his clients, including my father. Then there was the first “thank you” gift I received from a client. I will never forget that feeling. And, when my wife and daughter got their real estate licenses, forming our family real estate team.
The wonderful thing about being in real estate for a long time is, I can offer more than simply writing an offer or placing a home on the MLS. I can improve my client’s odds for success. From strategies that have worked in the past to overcoming obstacles I have seen before; my goal is to give my clients an edge.
Like everyone else, I too get mailers from real estate agents with the number of sales they have done, how they are “#1” and so on. Yes, I too have sold a lot of homes. Over a thousand last I checked, but clients should not be treated as numbers. When helping a home buyer, it’s not how fast I can sell a home to them, it’s the number of homes I don’t sell them. I try to make sure they have thoroughly explored all available homes in their price range before making an offer.
As far as home sellers, preparation is very important. It’s no secret the beginning of every listing period often results in the greatest amount of buyer traffic. Therefore, making sure the home is 100% ready can make a huge difference. This includes outstanding photos, an accurate list of features that highlight the home’s best attributes, and exposure to as many buyers as possible. Then, once offers come in, it is not about selling as quickly as possible, it is about selling for as much as possible.
