How Many Homes Have You Sold In Your Career ?

By
Education & Training with (retired) TN LIC# 290452

                                     how many

Do you do more than gather listings?

What's your track record of actually selling houses?

Clients demand agents with a good track record.

Agents who sell houses.

Agents who can sell houses in a lousy, downturned market.

I'm not a salesperson, although a broker. 

Just an info-tech manager for a brokerage, immersed in geekdom.

What's your story?

Thanks for answering.

I sell what I list. Sellers must be reasonable. This is not 2004 or 2005. Yes, I do not take every listing. It must have the potential to sell.

I agree with Vickie!  A poorly priced listing just COSTS you money-and it its BAD advertising!  Be honest with your sellers UP FRONT!

I am not a salesperson either.  I tell people that I couldn't sell cold water on a hot day but I can find them a house to fall in love with.  I am a matchmaker! (click to read)

Tell me what you think you want and I will find it for you!

I have had 29 transaction sides in the 2 years I have been a Realtor.  This year I have had 7.

Julie, the question seeks an answer to a fundamental, sub-stratified question, deposited upon the layers of other questions in the seller's mind that they might ask before they list, which asks, "Is this agent someone who can actually sell houses, or do they just collect listings to make it look like they're busy and don't do anything else?" I'd want to know the answer to this question before I sign a listing agreement with any broker.

I'd try to think like a responsible seller before I could represent any seller (whether the seller your considering representing appears responsible, reasonable or otherwise), and I'd absolutely, positively want to work with an agent who has the experience to market my property and find me a willing, able and ready buyer, willing to pay a fair market price. And I'd want to, as the seller, work with an agent that has the confidence, and the experience, to work in a depressed market, and, especially, in this extremely volatile economic environment, an agent who will try to work against the enormous pressure to correct any perceived local market imbalance affected by negative external financial impropriety, influence, and recession, local, regional and national.
