IF YOU ARE A SENIOR…

When you are facing a move as a Boomer or Senior, look for a Realtor® with the specialized training and experience you need, look for an Accredited Senior Agent™ As an Accredited Senior Agent, I’m NOT out to get your listing; I work as a consultant, side-by-side with you and whatever advisors you want involved.

I have only one goal in our relationship, to help you come to the best decision for you. If that decision is to stay in your present home, then that’s a good thing for you. I will help you understand all your options with no pressure.

I have a sphere of professional people around me who I can refer you to, who can assist you with legal and tax matters, or capital gains issues, insurance, or a host of other issues you may need to have resolved. I am here to assist YOU in any way I can. Call me for a free consultation, to see if we can work together in resolving your unique needs, as a senior. I am a senior also and therefore have a hands on perspective to you unique needs.

EXPECTATIONS

It’s important to have a realtor with whom you can feel comfortable, and who will make your real estate transaction as smooth and effortless as possible for you.   The realtor’s job is to help their client reach their goals and satisfy their needs.

YOUR AGENT SHOULD:

  •  Return your phone calls promptly 
  •  Make themself available to you at every opportunity when you need them
  •  Explain all paperwork and procedures carefully and thoroughly
  •  Gather the information you need to feel comfortable in the decisions you make. 
  •  Be there every step of the way to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
  •  Look after your interests, first and foremost.
  •  Prepare a comprehensive Comparative Market Analysis report to establish fair market value
  •  Prepare and sign listing contract and all necessary paperwork accurately
  •  Place house listing on MLS Board, agent website, and numerous internet/social media sites for  easy accessibility to perspective buyers.
  •  Place “For Sale” sign on property (if applicable)
  •  Place lock box on property, if needed. Please note that for extra security I only use Electronic Lockboxes
  •  Schedule property for Agent’s Open House if that is something you want
  •  Advertise the open house on the public real estate webiste, and post it on numerous social media sites
  •  Arrange showings for other agents
  •  Contact you regularly with verbal progress reports
  •  Pre-qualify potential buyers
  •  Present and discuss all offers on property with you
  •  Negotiate the transaction with you and and finalize the sales contract
  •  Assure financing is in place
  •  Confirm that all contingencies on sales contract are completed
  •  Finalize the closing

Selling a home is so much more than placing a For Sale sign on the property and posting the listing on the MLS system.  Finding an experienced, and knowledgable agent is crucial to a successful sale.  An experienced real estate agent has a fiduciary responsibility to put your interests first and foremost.

Is your agent fulfilling all your needs and expectations?
