A open letter to Owensboro Ky home buyers, are we a good fit?

Real Estate Agent with Maverick Realty

An open Letter to Owensboro Kentucky Home Buyers, are "we" a good fit?

This is from a conversation I have recently had with my potential buyers.


Thanks for emailing me again and for looking at another beautiful Owensboro, Kentucky home with me.

You stated that you are in no hurry to buy and are going to wait for the right home to come available.

It think that it is perfect that you can and want to take your time and wait for the right home.

I can't blame you at all! You so deserve that privilege!

There is absolutely no hurry and I do not mind if it takes you a long time to find that perfect home in Owensboro Kentucky.

Half the fun is in looking and searching!  

But, I do have some important questions for you now.   In order for our relationship to flourish I need to know a few things.

As you are getting the home information that I am sending by email, or if you see any signs at homes for sale,(even if they aren't mine) and have any questions and want to get inside any homes, would you be willing to call only me if you want to see any?  It really needs to be a reciprocal relationship. 

It would be great if you would commit to me and allow me the honor and the privilege of working with you both and to be your Realtor.  It would be in your best interest to do so.

It will go both ways as well. 

I would be willing to contact you immediately if I should come up with something else that may be of interest to you.  I really do go over and above for my clients and put my heart and soul into servicing them.  I always put your needs first and foremost.

I have found that picking and choosing my clients keeps me focused and allows me to provide remarkable service to them. You picking and choosing your own Realtor in Owensboro Ky is a very important decision. But, you really so need to commit to just one Agent.  It doesn't have to be me.  But, pick just one and stick with one that you feel comfortable with and trust.  Buying or selling a home is a huge undertaking and one of your biggest investments of time and energy as well as money.

I would be happy to provide you with some recent references.  Simply call, text or email me!

In case you don't already know, I feel as if I should share some information about myself to help with your big decision. 

I am a Broker with 12 years of experience. 

I had my own Real Estate company for 7 years in TN.

I have been working in Real Estate since 1998.

I  married my high school sweetheart. I am a mother to four grown and well adapted children. I am the proudest grandmother in the world to two of the most beautiful grand children in the whole wide world!

I also am a RN and I have 20 years of sales and marketing experience.

Higher end homes are my specialty and the Internet is my focus, as that is where the buyers are! 

If you are a buyer, isn't that why you are here reading this blog?

Did you know that as of this writing that almost 90% of buyers begin their search on the Internet?

Also, if you would want to know more about me and my internet presence, please feel free to go and google Vickie McCartney when you get a chance.

So now that I have revealed information about me, and 

now that we have met and worked a little together, May I ask you a very important question?

Do I seem like someone you would want to choose to be your Realtor? 

I feel like we would be a good fit, but I have learned the hard way not to assume anything. 

It is possible that I may not be at all what you are looking for in a Realtor. 

I am up front and honest with people and I am looking for the same. 

I  would love for you both to be my clients and for me to be your Realtor. 

I wouldn't want either of us to be wasting our time! 

I pick and choose who I work with, and YOU need to too!


So, I am just wondering, are we are a good fit?

This is the best written article on buyer agency ever!! How lucky the buyers would be if they chose you. You have such a way with words! I adore you and your classy style!!

"It would be great if you would commit to me and allow me the honor and the privilege of working with you both..."

Maybe because we have so much in common..20 years in real estate and former RN's.

I liked it, Vickie. Just two comments:

  1. I would change "doing real estate" to "working in real estate."
  2. I would change "higher end homes are my niche" to "higher end homes are my speciality."

I think they would sound better.

I agree with TLW!  Nurses are better at most things than the rest of us.  You've learned how to listen, and you're compassionate.  Love this post.

Hi Charles~  Oh yes, the green shoes!  He has such wide feet and they have a hard time getting him shoes that fit without paying an arm and leg for them!

Hi Vickie, what a great letter to a potential customer, it feels like learning more about yourself and asking the buyer very important questions and in the same time answering them.

Is there a group Nurses turned Realtors?  Because if there is, I would like to belong as well!  I think your letter is very warm and caring, just like the Nurse in You!

Vickie, this was one of the best-written letters I've seen in awhile. Not pushy or preachy, it lets just enough of yourself out to grab the reader and pull them in, if they are willing.

I am certain that many would love to adapt this to their own particular locations and experiences (with your permission, of course).

Vickie, what a wonderful letter and idea.  I agree buyers can take their time to look and search, but they need to commit with one agent only, don't waste everyone's time for their own benefit.
