Whether it is a family member or a friend, we have all heard the stories and experiences of those that have gone through the process of buying or selling a home. Throughout my years in real estate, I have listened to the stories of many and have noticed an underlying theme of negativity. One of the biggest complaints that I hear time and time again are the concerns that crucial aspects were not addressed during the transaction process. Sometimes “they wish that they would have held out for a higher sales price” or “the transaction seemed to get away from them and they felt rushed by their agent” or maybe they closed escrow and the home “seems to have fallen apart” once they walked through the door. Regardless of the concern, it is far too often that the commentary is negative.
When buying or selling a home, the client should feel reassured and confident that they have made the right decision. When working with my clients, it is not my job to tell them what they need or to attempt discourage their involvement so I can ‘take care of everything’. Rather, it is my job to form a partnership with the client by opening the channels of communication, welcoming participation and involvement, identifying their needs, and guiding each client through the process to ensure a smooth transaction. I am here to address any questions or concerns that may arise by providing you with clear, factual, and ethical advice.
My overall goal is to establish and instill a new way of thinking about the real estate market. As a seasoned Realtor, it is a priority to remove the unnecessary complexities from the process, to exceed expectations, and to create an overall positive experience for each and every client. This is not the time to be mired down by the stressors and anxiety that can easily be avoided. This is the time that the client should be thinking about settling into their new home, making memories with loved ones, and placing their focus on building a bright future.
