The Best Of The Best Communicate

What makes an outstanding professional stand out from the rest?

It's the communication!

 

Of course, it comes down to researching and choosing the right knowledgeable person, whether it's your Realtor®,  mortgage lender, title company, attorney,  inspector, or various contractors.  The best professionals go a step beyond by staying in touch and giving timely updates about the transaction.

 

LENDER

The lender keeps us informed when the application is complete, when they ordered the appraisal, any needed items, and any possible chance of delay or change in closing. 

 

Title

The title company confirms the process of what items are still needed, including but not limited to the pay-off information, title issues, mortgages, surveys,  whether a POA is required, verify documents, date, time, place of closing, and provides a preliminary CD for review. 

 

Inspectors

Confirm the time and payment form, give clear explanations for defects, timely turnaround, and complete easy-to-understand reports. 

 

REALTOR®

The Realtor® is the orchestra conductor. We lead and stay in touch with the coop agent, lender, title personnel, HOA, coordinating and staying on top of all inspections and deadlines. 

 

In my opinion, what makes the best, the best is communication. Positive updates are just as important as those that cause concern. 

A lot is going on to get the transaction to the settlement table. 

You are staying in touch with your buyer and your seller, calling to give positive updates, letting them know the progress, and making the clients a part of the various steps. 

We all get so busy that we may forget to include our clients when things are running smooth.  Keep clients in the loop. It only takes a few minutes to text, email, or call your client to say:

"Just touching base with an update" and then list the steps of the process.

And this is what makes the true professionals stand out from the rest! 

I am so lucky to be working with the best of the best!

Be who you are and say who you are and don't apologize for being yourself as long as you are polite and kindhearted

Good morning Margaret - I would say the Realtor is the team leader and those who are solo still have these teams. Communication is number one in any team.

Hello Margaret - in any successful transaction(real estate or real life) effective communication connects it all.  Hopefully, a happy conclusion is the result of such effort.

Good morning Margaret. Choosing the right agent is the first step towards a successful journey to home ownership. The agent has vetted the members of the team and failure to communicate will cause members to lose their place. Enjoy your day.

Communication is certainly one of the most important things that I consider when dealing with others.

Hi Margaret- just as in personal relationships, communication or lack of it, is the primary cause when things don't go well.

Margaret every successful transaction I have been a part of, has had excellent communication between all parties from start to finish.  When a transaction lacks communication, things go sideways throughout the transaction.

Kathy Streib,

  When things don't go well, business or personal, it is usually the lack of communication.

Yes, we are on the same page recognizing how important communication is during any of our transactions. We do have the power to make things happen by staying in touch with all parties in a transaction.
