Listing Your Home With Me
Real estate is not just my job, it's my passion. I have a passion for serving others and to make sure that you are 100% taken care of. I am not satisfied unless you are. With over 13 years in the industry, I have completed hundreds of transactions and have learned from every one of them. Through each hurdle, I have learned what customers pain points are and how to fix them. This has helped my customer service out tremendously. Because I have a passion for serving others, I believe in educating my clients so that they can make well informed decisions with their housing needs.
When I am interviewing my clients, I ask them what's the most important thing that they look for in an agent. I would say that most people are looking for a great communicator, someone that is easy to get a hold of and is not too busy for them. You will find that I am easy to get a hold of, and will communicate with you over multiple platforms (phone, email, text, in person, video email/text).
Far too many agents disappear after the transaction is closed. With me, that doesn't happen. My goal in real estate is to build life lasting relationships. I am not looking to earn your business, rather looking for your relationship. You will be very satisfied with my service and that's how I continue to grow my business. That is my promise to you!
Now that you have learned a little about me, lets talk about how I handle marketing your home for sale!
Each house is unique in it's own way. The best way to gain attention to your home is by showing off its features in video. I try to get creative with each house by showing off the main features that would attract the right buyer to your home. I don't do listing videos on every house that I list, but if the seller is willing to let me come into their home for a few hours and shoot, I will! My main job as your agent is to properly market your home. Sticking a sign in the yard and throwing it on the MLS is not how I roll!
Check out this coming soon video I did for a client of mine. This house was listed on Easter weekend and received multiple offers on the first day!
For each home that I list, I will hire a professional photographer to come out and take lots of hi-resolution photos. I have taken my own pictures in the past with my handy Iphone, but I have learned over the years hiring a professional really brings out the detail in your home which attracts potential buyers to come look at your house.
Once the professional photos are done, I will build out a property website that will showcase all of the features of your home. This website will show the photos, slideshow, local neighborhood info, school info, etc. This is a great way for someone to learn about the property and the area on one site. I will drive traffic to this site via social media!
Virtual Tour/Slide Show
Pictures are great and all, but some potential buyers would rather watch a video. This slideshow comes with the photo package as well. I like to include this so that I can market to all prospects.
Just Listed Facebook Post
It's 2021, even my mom uses Facebook. Why wouldn't I use Facebook to market your home? It's free! I typically will do some pre-marketing on Facebook, and when the listing is live, I will link back to that property website as mentioned above. This is a great place to start the marketing process to get peoples eyes on it. I am also connected with other agents on social media, so this helps that side of things as well.
MLS and Property Syndication
As a licensed agent, I will list your home on the MLS system as well. As you may know, almost 90% of buyers begin their home search online. The MLS is a very powerful system that is linked with all local agents, and also buyers. Agents should have their buyers set up on a search to be notified as listings come up. As soon as we list here, these agents and buyers should all get an email with your listing (as long as it matches their search criteria).
Once its posted here, all of my listings are syndicated through the other main websites that you probably have used a time or two. It will go out to Realtor dot com, Zillow, Trulia, and dozens of other websites. It usually takes about 12-24 hours for it to fully syndicate to those sites. I usually tell my clients to google your address about 24 hours after going live.
The day we choose to take your listing live, I will come out and put in the For Sale sign in the yard. Signs are the old school method for getting the word out, but about 2% of sales still come from yard signs and work better in higher traffic areas. Signs are still a great way to spread the word with your neighbors, helps realtors find your property easier for showings, etc.
