buy5When you hire a real estate agent to help you sell your home, you have certain expectations of what your agent will do for you. Most sellers expect their agents to:

  • Give them advice about updates or repairs that will make their home more attractive
  • Help them determine a list price for their home
  • Market their home so it receives as much exposure to potential buyers as possible
  • Schedule showings with potential buyers
  • Advise them as they negotiate offers
  • Handle all the required paperwork

buy1That’s a pretty impressive list of duties. Of course, the value comes in how well the agent executes these duties. It’s one thing to stick a sign in your yard and call it marketing, and it’s a completely different thing to plant that sign, post your home on the internet with photos and a video tour, and contact other agents with clients looking for homes like yours. Now that’s marketing!

When you work with a high-quality, high-octane real estate agent, you can expect service that goes above and beyond average expectations in every area of the home-selling process. A world-class agent will:

♦Super-serve from the start-

Your agent’s goal should be to over-serve you, starting with the first contact. If you’re waiting days to hear back from an agent, you’re waiting too long. An agent who wants your business will return your call immediately—within minutes if possible!

♦Commit for the long haul

Even if you’re not ready to put your home on the market right away, your agent should be available to offer advice and Buying_REpageanswer questions as you prepare for the process. A trustworthy agent isn’t looking for a quick commission check; they will work with each client with a long-term view.

♦Speak from experience

Experience is the hallmark of an excellent real estate agent. Your agent needs years of experience in real estate, and more is preferable. They must also close on a minimum of 20 home transactions per year. With that kind of experience and performance, you can feel confident in relying on your agent’s advice.
