Q: What makes a good Realtor stand out?
Being a great realtor is all about education and life experience and their commitment to the role. Not only do I have a masters degree from Rollins College, but I paid my dues in several key areas of real estate before becoming a licensed agent—Title Company, Loan Officer, Home Builders Association.
As you read this, I have just finished renovating a home down to the studs and building it back. I know how a home is put together and can read an inspection report and understand what it means. Everyone wants a shiny penny in their new home, but the reality is there is a lot of competition for those homes. I help my buyers see past the paint and find the home of their dreams.
Everyone wants the shiny new penny. But the real deals to be had in real estate come with homes that may need a little bit of TLC.
I have a broad background in real estate marketing. This coupled with my experience with home construction, I can advise my sellers how to prepare their home for sale based on their abilities and budget and then I can showcase that home expertly online where the buyers are—this has resulted in many record-breaking sales in my career.
I run my business like an intimate boutique. I put in the time. Clients deserve nothing less.
Real estate is not a one-size-fits-all experience, and clients need their goals to be understood and achieved. Buying or selling a home is one of the most important financial decisions a person can make, moving is stressful. The best Realtor for you is experienced, focused on your needs, and really “gets’ you. Its all about communication and feeling comfortable enough to open up and discuss very personal aspects of your life – lifestyle, finances, and family matters. Find an agent who will hear what you are saying, and will keep your confidence.
