How do I choose the right Real Estate agent?

What is the value of the right Real Estate Agent?

Choosing the right agent for your home is vital as a wrong choice can cost you tens of thousands of dollars! Over our combined 20 years of Real Estate experience, we have met many homeowners all with different motives for selling, moving, or buying.  We understand that your home is your most valuable and emotional investment. Simply put we don’t see every house sold as just another transaction. We navigate the specific nuances of each sale to ensure we deliver excellent results.  Our proven systems and techniques continue to deliver incredible results to our clients.  So when it comes time to sell your property, let’s discuss the importance of choosing the right Real Estate agent. 

What is a good Real Estate Agent and how do I find them?

What is considered a ‘good agent’ is different depending on what you’re looking for. Some may consider someone who can make a funny video your agent of choice; or are they building their profile using your vendor paid advertising? What about the agent who will agree to the cheapest commission…? But then you must ask yourself, if you’re agent will negotiate down on commission, will they negotiate up for your house value? Should you list with a friend’s son/cousin/uncle who just started Real Estate? Do you choose a big brand agency or a boutique agency?  So many questions! Conducting research into an agent’s recent results and reviews is vital to forming your decision.  When it comes down to the wire, you should list with the agent who made you feel most comfortable and the agent with a plan on how they’re going to achieve top dollar for you! 

Recent Case Study

We have an outstanding track record of local sales, including our recent sale of 12/2018 Wynnum Road.  This gorgeous apartment was listed on the market for over 130 days with another agent. Frustrated and disappointed, the owner chose to take the sale over themselves for a further 60 days. After six months of stress, we sold their apartment in SEVEN days for $30,000 more than what the home had been listed for… It wasn’t as simple as ‘Right Place, Right Time’, but our proven systems and techniques. 

Understanding Buyer Behaviour

Buyers present distinct requirements. We nurture our relationships with our buyers. We understand buyers triggers and motivations.  By creating emotive triggers, we will get you more value for your home.  Our vast experience ensures we can negate any negative comments without being emotionally impacted, a struggle if selling your own home. It is vital to seek feedback on pricing or why the home isn’t suitable for the buyer.  If you are selling your own home a buyer may feel less comfortable to give accurate feedback, as they don’t want to offend or insult your home.  Without this information at hand, a Seller may find their home sits on the market longer and ultimately sells for less than it would have with a good agent leading them through the process.   Read more about the impacts of selling your home yourself by clicking here!
