Not every real estate agent is a REALTOR®. By joining the National Association of REALTORS®, I hold this distinction and proudly use this title. Here are some guidelines I adhere to because I am a REALTOR®.
When representing a buyer, seller, landlord, tenant, or other client as an agent, REALTORS® pledge themselves to protect and promote the interests of their client. This obligation to the client is primary, but it does not relieve REALTORS® of their obligation to treat all parties honestly.”
Beyond serving as a REALTOR®, I offer the following to each of my clients.
Listen: Your needs are different than every other buyer or seller! I take time to ask insightful questions about your lifestyle needs, your home needs, and then listen to your answers. Any decisions we make together are then based on these needs.
Educate: You should be very clear on what it means to work with a REALTOR®, how the home buying or selling process flows, what costs you will incur, the timetable involved, and more. I have a developed system to efficiently inform you of the process.
Inform: I want to you to know about my qualifications and how I plan on representing you. I make sure you are clear about the process and our strategy. We get on the same page so there are no disappointments, only success!
Negotiate: Well-connected and well-versed, I provide an unparalleled ‘insiders’ expertise at the ready for you. When it’s time for the tough negotiations, I am tactful and results-oriented, with your very best interest in mind.
Nurture: It’s sound cliché, but you really are building a relationship with your REALTOR®. Long term I stay in touch, keep you in the know about your neighborhood, think about your needs, and will be here for you if have a question, anytime!
Follow-thru: With every promise, I follow-thru. I communicate well, have answers when I say I will, and catch the phone when you call.
