I have asked my clients why they chose me as their real estate consultant, and the common thread to all of their comments is the fact that I listen. My business is customer service so this information has led me to become a better consultant and I now create more value for my clients. My number one objective in business is to become preferable.
Disgruntled home buyers
So many times I hear from my clients that their agent is not listening to them about what they want. For example, one couple was looking for a single-family home in the Tahoe Keys yet their agent was showing them condos. Another wanted only a 3-4 bedroom home and their agent showed them 2 bedrooms.
Budget is another area where I’m hearing that other real estate agents don’t listen to the buyer’s wishes. People normally can’t spend above their budget so why show homes that are priced too high?
What to expect with me
I will listen to all of your concerns, desires and what you want in your search for the perfect Lake Tahoe home. When we first meet, either on the phone, in person or by email, it may seem more like a counseling session. I want you to be confident that I’m here for you for the long haul and need to know how I can best serve you.
Here are some sample questions:
- What’s your timeframe to buy or sell?
- Tell me what is important to you in buying or selling a home in Lake Tahoe
- What are your expectations for me? And how often should we be in touch?
- Have you worked with or currently working with another Realtor? What was the experience like?
- Tell me what you don’t like.
I am not here to act as a salesperson. My job is about our relationship and how I can help you the best way possible in either selling your home or helping you buy one. Consider me your Real Estate Consultant for Life.
If you’d like a consultation on your real estate needs, whether it’s selling or buying, email me or call me at 530-541-2465.
