For those who haven't met me yet, I recently joined the team of Century 21 Pinnacle in Lindsay Ontario.
Being fairly new to real estate, I must mention the enormous amount of respect I have for the efforts of realtors. From servicing their clients, training and the continuous education, its not just a walk in the park. So let me get to my point here.
During my last phase to obtain my realtor licence while driving to class, I would hear on the radio a commercial for the Property Guys . Now this is where I started getting just a little confused.
They would go on saying that realtors are not worth our commissions and that we don't do anything to earn it. Well let me tell you something. Would you want your dentist to hand you a drill with a few instructions, take your money and with NO legal obligation if things go wrong. Some how I don't think so.
We even hire lawyers to fight a traffic ticket because we don't understand all the ins and outs of the legal system. So then tell me, why would we not represent ourselves for a $300 ticket, but would do so for the sale of one of the biggest investments you have made? AKA your home!
I am currently in the middle of closing my first deal and I can assure you that from start to finish, I provided my clients with everything they needed. I spent time, researched property after property and 8 weeks later was able to finish up the deal.
If my clients would have changed their minds, not only would I have been out my time but also my expenses. If you don't sell your house yourself do you get your money back? If I don't do my job my clients do not lose a dime.
I help my clients with,
- market value
- property staging
- cleaning services
- moving services
I could go on but I am sure you see where I am going with this. I have dedicated myself to my clients by providing them with all of there real estate needs. I will go that one step further to make sure my clients are happy.
PS If you were thinking that I receive any payment for the services above, sorry NO. Just a client with a little less to worry about. There is enough stress in life. Real Estate shouldn't be.
So in all fairness, if I handed you a sign , put you on the internet and gave you a bill wishing you all the best. how much would that be worth to you?
If you look at what you are getting at the end of the day, who is really getting paid for doing nothing???
Good luck and lets hope you will make the smart choice. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
