The decisions surrounding a move, I've found over the years, are generally complex. Even when the move is for "positive" reasons...a job promotion, a wedding, expanding family, etc., most people have mixed emotions. Yes, they want to move, but how much can they "really" afford (not just what the lender says, what does their pocketbook say!), will they be able to find something that "feels" like home to them, will their current home sell in time for their move and will they have enough money to close on their new place, how will the kids adjust, etc. These thoughts engender all sorts of emotions as well.
Of course it's important, when deciding whether or not to work with an agent...and then deciding WHICH agent is best for servicing your needs...to find one that is skilled in a variety of areas that are important for your successfull move....things like market knowledge, marketing skills, negotiating strategies, utilizing all the great technology tools that provide MEANINGFUL benefit for the client, understanding of all the paperwork involved, etc. However, over the more than two decades that I've served in this industry, the one thing that people seem to MOST appreciate is that LISTENING TO THEIR NEEDS & PRIORITIES has always been a top priority to me. I've always believed that, in order to help a client come to the best decisions for THEMSELVES, I must understand what is important to them!
