Research Potential Candidates
Interview at least Three
Ask real estate agents to provide information on homes they’ve listed and sold in the past year, with contact information for at least a few recent clients. This number 5. bullet point is the most common in my opinion and has been for decades and for me it’s time for change.
The most common thing you hear home sellers and buyers say when someone ask them about their home selling is, “we gave the listing to my sister, cousin, mom and friend) Gave! What ever happened to “earning it” So now you want to “Give” the reference to someone else.
Ok, maybe the realtor did and amazing job and I believe that but that’s not how your going to hear it referenced. So be careful with References and how they were “given the listing” listen closing on the words the referral (er) uses. I want hear Angelo earned our business even if they don’t have 20 years of experience.
Go with Your Gut
It’s just like dating — sometimes it just comes down to chemistry and this bullet point is the one I feel is about me and fits me the best. And let me say I’ve gone with my gut and I’ve been wrong before but I hope I can win the “Gut” category over because when I do then the work begins and I get to show my clients how much I like to work and all I do.
I’m easy and I listen to what ever my clients want done ti’s how I have always been. No argument here we’re gonna get this done and make everyone happy but it’s your home your calling the shots I’m just here to help the selling or buying process go smoother or faster with some ideas if they help.
If I didn’t win you over with bullet point 6. then this has to be my last chance, no. This has to be the most important area that I want when I choose realtors over the years. What do they know about the area. Your buying or selling your home in a neighborhood or area that has value in it’s own and some areas not as much but your realtor needs to know this. This is what your going to do as a buyer or seller understand the area.
The schools your kids will be possibly going to, the shopping centers you will be spending time at and some of the neighbors you will be living next to. I have lived in Central Phoenix all my life and I would have a very hard time taking a listing in Gilbert AZ, I’m pretty sure I would even consider it. Why? I don’t know the area as well as I should but guess what I know some awesome realtors that live and breath the area.
You would be shocked on how many realtor that want listings would take it even if they lived clear on the other side of town just to have a listing. That’s not taking care of your clients. In my humble opinion that’s just one more thing that separates me from my colleagues.
So, if you want to hire an agent I hope this helps and you can reach out to me anytime with any question and no pressure at all I will guide you through the process. Below given is our contact information.
