WHY CHOOSE ME TO LIST YOUR HOME?
That’s a great question and one that should be asked by any seller when there are nearly 2000 Realtors® in Central Oregon. Any broker can look at the current stats, price a home or list it in MLS with a lockbox, a sign and some flyers then cross their fingers and home for a buyer. Not me… I go beyond!
You will find I don’t take professionalism lightly… From the photos I take of the home to the follow-up of each showing, to the way I negotiate and conclude the sale… At each step, I display the highest level of professionalism that clients and colleagues have come to expect. When your home looks good, I look good. And, I can’t afford to not look good in this competitive environment.
THE FIRM MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE!
I have been with Total Real Estate Group since 2012. I have looked elsewhere over the years, explored different platforms, size of firms and ownership structures. I have not found a better firm to ensure that I am conducting my best business possible. Total is a full-service real estate firm that is owned by a seasoned real estate attorney, David Ambrose and his business partner, Jan Alexander. They are solid business entrepreneurs that allow me to respond to changing market conditions quickly and effectively. I can be creative and openminded as to the way I approach real estate rather than being tied to a corporate mindset. The affiliation with their law firm gives me a depth of knowledge and resources unmatched in Central Oregon. I have first-hand exposure and education as to what is occurring in the mortgage and banking environment, global real estate shifts and overall best business practices to protect not only our business but my clients as well.
Additionally, our affiliation with Leverage Global Partners partners program gives us worldwide listing exposure that allows us to uniquely market your home while rivaling some of the larger firms, and without the increase in commission rates that often accompany national real estate brokerages. I encourage you to look at their website to see what your listing could look like once it goes live. (www.leveragere.com).
OVERVIEW OF MARKETING OPTIONS
90% of home buyers use the internet to search for homes and 89% of those buyers use the services of a real estate agent. It’s vitally important to focus our marketing efforts online and towards other agents. That’s where we focus much of the “storytelling”. I will ensure your home has the best online presence possible. My job is to make your home come alive on a computer screen and accurately represent your home so that we entice the right buyer. One of the biggest mistakes is to under market a home by not including a full array of photos and description of each- it doesn’t cost any more- just some time and effort.
