The following provides information about me…consider it a mini-résumé. Think of it this way: companies don’t hire new employees without first verifying references and checking on the work history of the candidate. You shouldn’t work with a REALTOR® and their team without first checking into their work history and verifying their references either.
It’s About You, Not Me
The first thing you need to know is that when you engage me to work for and with you as your REALTOR®, I am legally obligated to act in your best interests and to put your interests before the interests of all others; including my own.
I am your personal advisor and the only thing(s) that matter to me are those things that matter to you.
What You Can Expect
You can expect an initial meeting in which we will go over the Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) and Listing Presentation package I will have prepared specifically for you in advance. We will spend approximately one-hour together during our first meeting and we will:
- tour your home so I can learn about any recent upgrades and renovations;
- discuss your plans, goals, timelines, and competing priorities you may have;
- address any questions or concerns you may have;
- discuss your CMA and the price I have recommended for your home; and
- discuss my approach to marketing and selling your home.
My time is yours and during our initial meeting you will have as much time as you need to ask questions about me, the market, and/ or the selling of your home. Remember, this is your meeting and you’ve invited me to your home. If after our initial meeting we decide to work together, you can expect a second meeting in which we will list your home and go over any last minute details. This may occur within days or weeks of our meeting – it all depends on you; and that’s the way it should be.
After all, this is about you!
As you can imagine, there are a great many details to be covered, items to be addressed, and tasks to be checked off to get your home ‘SOLD’. I will handle everything for you; all the while guiding you through the process, keeping you informed, and at all times making myself available to you. Communication is key!
You will only have to:
- keep your home ready for and accommodate requests to show your home;
- pay for the Real Property Report (RPR) if one is required;
- sign the appropriate paperwork; and
- start packing.
Remember, you hired me to do the work…why would you settle for anything less?
Why Work With Me?
There are approximately 3,000 REALTORS® licensed with the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton. That’s a lot of choice – in fact, too much choice.
Selling your home is not fun and by-and-large most people find it extremely stressful. My job (aside from selling your home) is to make it as stress-free as possible and bear as much of the burden for you as I can, thereby allowing you to focus on moving – and not on selling.
When it comes to selling your home, I will personally handle as many of the tasks as you wish me to; all the while keeping you up-to-date and informed about our progress. I will make sure you are aware of the next steps before they happen and will ensure you understand each step along the way so there aren’t any surprises and you don’t feel as though you are being ‘swept along’ in the process.
