A Step on the Path To Successful Real Estate Transactions...

Real Estate Broker/Owner with F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate

Each REALTOR, as an Independent Practitioner has their own policies on how they handle Clients & Customers.

At Home with Diversity Training by NAR

It has been our policy, from the beginning, to show Listings to Prequalified Buyers. After Grace attended and successfully Became CERTIFIED in the National Association of REALTORS course:

 At Home with Diversity - One America 

Our policy was not only confirmed, but we expanded it! After being introduced to the highly recommended PROSPECT EQUAL SERVICE REPORT given out in this class, we now include a standardized collection of data from potential clients & customers to keep in our records.

We explain our policy to those who call us, wanting to see a property.

SERIOUS Buyers, who are ready and willing, will gladly prove they are able and provide us answers to the questionare's form.

Looky Louie's  :)  are not so willing... and usually find another Agent who's policies may differ.

But what happens when the Buyer becomes the Seller?

Sellers LOVE our SYSTEM.

Even Buyers who used another agent to purchase A Home, remember our explanation and have called us to LIST their PROPERTY when it's time to sell.

 Take this Home SOLD BY The Safrin's this YEAR in ONLY 47 Days on the Market !

This Buyer contacted us early in 2007 with potentially relocating, but alas, was unwilling to get pre-qualified or provide information to us required by the Prospect Equal Service Form. Their own home, in another State, was not even on the Market to sell as of yet.  So, showing them a home (no, they were not sitting in the car in front of it - but we have had calls like this, when people are :) was premature to say the least. They did end up purchasing a listing of ours (using another agent) but, 8 months later.

3 months AFTER the above closing, in 2008, they called us, rather than their former Agent, to List their property, as Plans again changed.

We always ask at our listing appointments, WHY or WHY NOT we are selected.  We believe feedback right then & there, good or bad, is the only way to collect data and IMPROVE :)

Among the reason's for choosing us, one of them was : We pre-qualify Buyers.

Being FULL Time REALTORS, we strive for Win - Win Situations in which we follow a proven System FOR Success.

Real Estate Transactions are Complex, with a path of events that need to take place - one after the other, for a Deal To Close! path to A Successful Sale

When we meet with prospective Buyers or Sellers the first time, we provide them with these Steps and EXPLAIN the HOME-BUYING  or Home Selling PROCESS in detail.

Jeff & Grace, I can imagine that once someone works with you they won't want to work with anyone else.  How wonderful that you take such good care of all your clients.

Hello Carole - Thanks for taking time to stop by and comment - when we set up these policies, we were told by our peers that we would lose alot of business. As the years progress in our career - we are doing 3rd and 4th transactions for the same clients who over a decade,who come back and use us because of the positive results follwoing basic principles produces. We are not big shots in this business - just little shots that keep shooting :)
