I’m A REALTOR®

I’m Not A Magician

But I Do Have Some Secrets To Share

 

I'm A REALTOR I'm Not A MagicianWhen you hire me for your real estate representation you not only get my years of experience and market knowledge, I also share some secrets that can assist you in winning whether you are a prospective buyer or seller.  This proven insider strategy is helpful regardless of market condition.  

 

But I’m not a magician -- really I’m not.

 

 

There’s no sleight of hand.  

No shills.  

No sawing in half but I have stories of clients experiencing some significant savings when they have chosen me.  

 

And when it comes to fairy dust -- let’s not even go there.  I have professionals available to address such issues.

 

I share strategies with sellers of pricing, presentation and preparation and how/when to respond to offers. It’s important that your home is not just listed on the multiple listing service but exposed in the best manner through a thorough and complete marketing plan.   If it’s going to vanish -- we want it to be in the form of a transaction that encompasses the best possible price and terms for you.      

 

Yes, I know about deals and believe the best ones for buyers are when you win and that seemingly magical moment when you close.  Now that’s a darn good run.   

 

I will share a glimpse into the local market taking into account what’s also happening beyond our little spot in the world.   I can’t predict what may or may not happen in the future...after all if any of us could -- why would we be here, right?

 

I have no gimmicks.

 

There's nothing sneaky going on.

 

And definitely no props.  

 

Interested in knowing more secrets about buying or selling real estate in Pasadena, the San Gabriel Valley or NorthEast Los Angeles?   Contact me at 818.516.4393 cell.  Let’s discuss what’s important to you.

Very enjoyable post, I really do believe the more experience and market knowledge an agent has, will translate to a better experience for both buyer's and seller's.

Lots of wisdom in your post Michael, and I especially like

Great post! It's always tough not to share all your secrets before they sign on the bottom line to use you.

Hi Michael Jacobs 

Great post but  have to agree with Richard Robibero, ABR, SRS  as if you share all your secrets beforehand, they might go somewhere else or try to do a FBSO. I think you are very much a magician  and expert in your area. I highly reccomend you too.

When the consumer understands the value and skills a professional real estate agent offers things are good.  When they understand Realtors can't work magic, it is even better!
