. A number of times recently, we have heard about Realtors who were having a conference call with divorcing/divorced clients to discuss on offer or some aspect in a transaction. Agents take listings...and we realize to many agents....working with a divorcing couple does not sound like it requires any special training, skills or communication techniques. Our training and decade of working in this niche differs with with that point of view.
IF a couple cannot agree on enough things to make a marital relationship work...from who manages the money to child care and a host of other things that ultimately often become Power Games...putting them in the same room to agree on one of the largest financial assets they still hold jointly....probably not a great idea. You are not the lawyer, not the mediator...you are the representative engaged to get the highest and best price for the house...right side up or yes in some cases...still it can be nwoD edispU.
If you are not prepared to prepare each spouse for what happens in a transaction...from the Pre-Marketing to the Closing...do the couple, the court, the prospective buyers and their agents a HUGE favor,....don't take the listing or take the time, make the effort to get the education that helps you ....help them. It's not the same as a "traditional" transaction...and can't be treated that way, We are always happy to answer questions OR if there is a spot available, enroll you in our one on one course we have for agents who want to specialize in a divorce niche.
If you or anyone you know is divorcing and needs assistance in areal estate transaction, call the Hansons...over a decade of expericnce working with hundreds of divorcing couples in the southeastern counties of Kenosha, Racine, Walworth, Waukesha. Milwaukee,Ozaukee, Washington and Jefferson.
