We understand that your sister, aunt, nephew, or a friend of your friend may know a Realtor. We also know that you may feel some pressure to go with them out of social respect. Even if you are close with this person you may have a gut feeling trusting this huge transaction to someone inexperienced may not be the best idea.
The best way to give your close ones a chance and to also make sure you are making the BEST decision for you and your family is to interview more than one Realtor. Selling your home will be one of the biggest financial transactions of your life. As a result, approach this decision as a business decision.
What kind of questions should you ask when interviewing a Realtor?
- Are you full time or this a side gig?
- If you have a team… who are they what are their roles?
- What is the communication process?
- What is your percentage list to sold price? Area of expertise?
- What is your marketing plan and why does it work?
We always encourage sellers to interview more than one Realtor when it comes time to sell or buy a home. The reason we can do that is because our unique position in the market and our decade of experience means we always stand out.
When you hire The Bearse Team to sell (not just list) your home you get a team of 3 full time Realtors working with you. Our listing appointment is very clear in describing our marketing plan and communication with you. We have excellent references from previous buyers and sellers and we sell over 60 homes a year! We are experts in our field and we will exceed all expectations.
It is our goal to make sure this is The Best Move You Ever Make!
