“Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!”
Know who I am talking about here? Not Superman. I am talking about how every realtor perceives themselves. I know because I have watched all their videos on how to choose an agent. They say things like:
“I sold that house the first day on the market” at a time when they all sell fast.
“My team sold 30 million dollars of real estate last year” and since there are 5 agents, that means 6 million each, which isn’t that exciting.
“I have a unique marketing plan that sells houses faster and for top dollar” which would be really impressive if all houses were not selling fast and for top dollar.
“I specialize in residential, commercial, farm and investment property.” Ok….so you specialize in EVERYTHING?
I get it. We are all in business. You have to self promote.
Want to know what I say?
There are many great agents out there and many more who are not. I may be the ideal fit for you. I may not be, and that is okay. I once had a buyer who was interviewing agents. I didn’t think it was going that well so I gave him the names of a few agents that I knew would take care of him. He ended up picking me, but for a while there I didn’t think I stood a chance. If he wasn’t going with me, I wanted him to have somebody good. That’s just the right thing to do.
So, who am I? Probably more like Clark Kent than Superman.
I am a realist. I am not afraid to tell you what I think. I like to think through all your options and help you make the best decision possible. I point out things I think you may not have noticed or thought about. I have a lot of experience. Nearly all of my work is repeat clients or referrals from past clients or friends. I am not greedy. I don’t take on more work than I can handle. I want to give you my best and enjoy the time I spend helping you.
