Freak-Out-Mode...Don't Stress - Let's Talk

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

Thinking about selling your home can lead to an eruption of a variety of emotions...
The pendulum may swing from the sentimental -"
I remember when little Johnny took his first step in that hallway..."
And then the pendulum may swing drastically in the other direction into what I call - 'Freak-Out-Mode'...

Freak-Out-Mode will be different based on your particular personality style but it may sound something like this...
I am so wildly excited about moving!
This will be GREAT!
OH NO, How will I manage to clean the house and make everything perfect?OH NO, Where do I start?
What am I DOING?
AAAH...What Do I DO FIRST...??

My recommendation is simple - 
First and foremost, take a deep breath...
You're not the first person that has ever decided to move so statistically speaking, you WILL survive - 
Survival is good - but Thriving is Better ...
Thriving through the sale of your home is accomplished by choosing the right Realtor® for You.  


How will you know who's the right Realtor® for YOU?
Call a Realtor® and Ask to meet at their office or in your home (whatever helps You feel more at ease) - And Sit Down - and TALK...
Ask yourself some key questions:
-Do I feel comfortable with this person?
-Does this person seem competent and passionate?
-Do I think I could communicate easily with this person?
-Does this person have good listening skills?
-Does this person seem to have MY BEST INTEREST in mind (and heart)?

Thinking about selling your home can lead to a variety of emotions.  It would be an honor for me to lead you through the process...

Buying, and selling, can be incredibly stressful and even the calmest person can, at times, have those moments. And not everyone behaves rationally when they stressful times feel overwhelming. We can often be a big help, a voice of reason, and a calming influence during these challenging times.

Maria,

Real estate is an emotional journey, regardless whether it is residential or commercial.  As an agent, you are in charge of calm.  Happy Thursday.  A

Hi Maria -- as others have commented -- great post title.  Agents are or should be the calm in the sea of a real estate transaction -- we navigate these things on a regular basis.  You're right to suggest that choosing representation is important -- we're all part of a team with a common goal.

Hi Maria - I warn clients (both seller and buyers) that everyone has a "melt-down moment" when buying or selling. I let them know there's nothing wrong with them, to recognize it when it happens, and then to call me.

Throughout the escrow period, I check in to ask if they have any questions, etc.

Just knowing someone understands their stress allows them to talk about it and get relief.

Good morning Maria Sapio ,

You nailed this post especially with the right title. Clients need reassurance some is an advocate for them and will help them tame the stress that can rear its head during the process of buying or selling a home.
