Choose a REALTOR® and a Price


You may opt to sell your property independently and that would be fine. There are, however, many excellent reasons why you should choose us to assist you in this important undertaking. We will ensure that you maximize your opportunities in the current real estate market. With our extensive contact networks that we have developed through the many national and international organizations, of which we are members, as well as our current and past clients, we will employ the most effective marketing and advertising strategies for your property. We will also guide you through the complicated paperwork involved, from the initial agreement to the final documents


The following are a couple of factors to keep in mind when looking for a listing agent:

1. EDUCATION. The most important factor in choosing a real estate professional is their education and experience in the real estate industry. We have advanced training and education, as well as decades of experience which allows us to be among the top REALTORS® in the world.

2. EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE. You want a full-time REALTOR® who is familiar with your area and with the type of property you intend to sell. Does he or she employ a diverse range of marketing and advertising strategies? How tech-savvy is your agent? How many similar properties has he or she been able to sell in the past?

3. AVAILABILITY AND COMMITMENT. Your REALTOR® should be capable of prompt and decisive action during the course of selling your property. Does your REALTOR® make it a point to keep in touch with you constantly? Can your REALTOR® easily be contacted in case of emergencies or even for the simplest questions? Is your REALTOR® available on the weekends or in the evenings when most buyers are out looking?

4. RAPPORT. Does your REALTOR® take the time to listen to your goals and clarify your needs? Can your REALTOR® understand your unique situation and be genuinely concerned about the outcome of the process? Your listing REALTOR® will be your guide and partner in this crucial decision, so it is important to find one with whom you can get along.


Without a professional REALTOR®, most independent property sellers tend to overestimate the value of their property. You can avoid this pitfall by consulting with an experienced real estate listing REALTOR®.
