Top 3 Reasons to hire an experienced agent, like myself, to represent you on the sale of your home.
Representation: As a seasoned agent, I act as a fiduciary for you – always protecting your best interest and putting your needs first and foremost. When you hire me, I will create a business and marketing plan to ensure a successful sale on your home. I pride myself on providing each client with a personalized VIP experience and taking the extra steps to obtain the highest and best terms for the sale of your home. At our initial meeting, we will decide on how to make your home stand out in our marketplace. With access to a full selection of home furnishings, we will then take the next steps to stage your home at no additional cost in order to represent your home in the best way possible. Pre-marketing and networking begin at the time the listing paperwork is completed. Marketing begins even before preparing for our professional photo shoot at your home. Upon listing your home, I will be present at all the showings, yes that is correct NO LOCKBOXES! I will create a specialized verbal presentation to highlight all the features and benefits of your home and community. By being present at the showing I can answer questions, provide better feedback to you, and do what I am hired for which is SELL YOUR HOME.
Exposure: With my access to over 900+ websites, 2 International MLS systems, 1 local MLS system, and 10 Marketing Specialists on staff, we will position your home for the best results possible. We have access to 14 offices, strategically placed throughout Pinellas County, that provide your home with a high level of local exposure. In addition, our affiliation with Christie’s International Real Estate allows us to showcase your home with unparalleled global recognition. Knowing Coastal Properties sold 2,644 homes and drove more than $1.7 billion in sales for 2021, you can rest assured that you are hiring a top selling Brokerage that has held this title for over 6 years straight. By aligning yourself with Coastal Properties Group and Christie’s International, you are ensuring a successful transaction with maximum results.
Negotiation Skills: This might be the most critical aspect of the sale, and having held a real estate license since 1998, this is the point where I feel I can be of the most benefit to you. With years of providing real estate services to hundreds of clients in Florida, Missouri, Illinois, and Kansas, I have been exposed to many different situations on both the Listing and Buyer sides of representation. I have obtained a Pricing Strategy Advisor Certification from the National Association of Realtors, which aids in effective negotiations. I can better support both sellers pricing and buyers offers from a home comps perspective. Contract knowledge and competence is also a very important aspect in the negotiation process. It is key to hire an agent who operates from a place of strength in the negotiation process and who, of course, always has your best interest at heart.
I would like to be your real estate advisor. I am always and will always be available to answer any of your real estate questions.
