Chevette vs. Corvette-Which type of agent do you want representing you, a traditional agent or a professional REALTOR®?

Are you tired of hearing comments like these...

"I'm the top salesperson in my company!"

"I'm a multi-million dollar producer!"

"I've won numerous awards!"

"If I can't sell this house no one can!"

"I'm the best, the greatest, the real estate God, me, me, me, me!"

Traditional agents boast about their accomplishments, you do all the listening. They have huge EGO'S and inflated resumes. But the bottom line is they make everything about THEM. They leave the clients concerns as a secondary consideration. Traditional agents do this because they cannot articulate why they differ from the other 7000 agents in this market area.

A professional REALTOR® makes YOUR needs and goals the focus. They listen to you and customize their marketing plans for each individual property. They never subscribe to a traditional agents "one-size-fits-all" approach to real estate. Professional REALTORS®, while they generally enjoy a higher level of success, are focused on the future not living in the past, and are willing to adapt in the ever changing market. They handle stress, constructive criticisms, and everyday problems in the same manner they handle their success and praises, calmly and professionally. They work well with the other PROFESSIONALS they come in contact with and rely on to conduct business.

The difference between a professional REALTOR® and a traditional agent can best be described in the following metaphor; what is the difference between driving a Chevette or a Corvette. Chevette vs. Corvette-Which type of agent do you want representing you, a traditional agent or a professional REALTOR®? They are both Chevy's, the names sound alike, both will get you to your destination, but the experience in getting there is very different.

The traditional agents has a very basic skill set, while the professional REALTORS® has a more intense knowledge and understanding of the client's individual needs, the current market, contracts and managing through to close.

Unlike the traditional agent, I am a professional REALTOR©.

I adhere to the REALTOR© code of ethics set forth by the National Association of REALTORS©.

I put my client's best interest above my own at all times.

I act with honesty and integrity with clients, customers and other professionals I come in contact with in the day to day operations of my business.

I understand that each property and client is unique and work with my buyers and sellers to realize their true desires and goals.

I understand and utilize the latest technologies to ensure the properties I market get the best exposure.

I meet with my sellers to customize a marketing strategy that fits their needs.

I communicate openly with my client's, I am always open to constructive suggestions.

If you are tired of the traditional agent who is unable to articulate what makes them different from the other 7000+ agents in your area, and are ready to work with a professional, give me a call.

Dear Miss Corvette (lol) cute analogy.  I liked it.  All of your points are very good.  We all should strive to be a corvette, or in my case a T-Bird.  Ive always been a Ford girl so my comparison is Mustang to T-Bird.  Have a great weekend.
