I once posted a social media post entitled Your Listening agent. My point was almost anyone can "List" a home for sale, but how many agents really listen to their seller and abide by their wishes?
For instance, does the seller want the listing agent to be present at all showings? What if the sellers have already moved on, will the agent be able to handle small tasks like letting in a contractor or repair person?
What if the seller has a "Latch Key kid"? You remember, a preteen who gets home from school before the parents. What if a showing agent wants to come through during this time?
I have found that if you listen to the needs of your seller client and provide them solutions, they will be more comfortable and have a better selling experience.
Let me know if I can be your Listening agent this coming year.
