“Number 1 Agent” or Low-Volume Agent?
In my area of Bernal Heights, we have a self-proclaimed “Number 1” Agent.
I, on the other hand, am a low-volume agent. Typically, I only list and/or sell 3 or 4 properties per year.
Which Agent would you choose for your listing?
If you believe the hype, the so-called “Number 1 Agent” has the most experience and will service your listing best.
That’s a questionable assumption.
I have been doing real estate deals for over 35 years, before most agents were even in the business.
The most important experience is overall experience, not transactions per year.
Typically, a high volume agent may be with you for the initial listing meeting, and then pass the listing off to much less experienced, younger agents in his company. You may never see him/her again.
On the contrary, when I get a listing, I give it 100% of my effort and see it through to its successful conclusion. This is because I don’t have several other listings that I am spreading myself thin over, trying to maximize profit at the expense of personal service.
I am here for my clients 24/7 and I utilize all the other agents in our company, our very experienced transaction coordinators, professional escrow agents, and our lead Broker. This profession team assures that every aspect of each of my transactions is double and triple checked every step of the way for accuracy, compliance, disclosure, and legality.
Next time, call me for a free market analysis and consultation. I will discuss with you the current market situation, recent comparable sales, and the prepping and staging techniques for your property that impress discriminating buyers and maximize your sales price.
