TOP 5 THINGS YOUR AGENT SHOULD BE DOING

Hiring a real estate professional is the most important part of a successful sales process.  You should always interview at least three agents.  Pay attention to the little things.  Are they on time?  Are they enthusiastic?  Are they knowledgable about local market conditions?  Do they appear professional?  Do they listen to your questions and concerns?  Once you select your agent, they should at minimum provide

 

1)  A specific weekly or bi-weekly contact (either by phone or email) time and day.

2)  A written marketing plan to sell your home

3)  A written report of all showings and buyer comments on your home.

4)  An estimate of the costs and your expected net on selling your home.

5)  A courteous response to your phone calls and questions within 24 hours.

    Thanks Linda, that list is very helpful.  Actually, I already have a list, and I'm willing to share it with you.

     

    1)  Wear tasteful, yet revealing clothing.

    2)  Work out on a regular basis to ensure that the height-to-weight proprtionality is on target.

    3)  Wear tasteful, yet provocative clothing.

    4)  Be extremely eager to satisfy the customer.

    5)  Wear tasteful, yet stimulating clothing.

    Did someone hijack this womans avatar and just start posting all over the boards for fun??  This cannot be serious.  Humorous to those of us who have read the boards for more than 5 minutes - but it can't be for real.  I would definitely pick Linda to represent me!!!!!!!  LOL

    Hey guys, she did not provide a link to her own personal website that is an international or even a national business. Geez, she is local to Valparaiso, IN. A town of under 30 thousand. Some of the newbies could use the info she provided. So lighten up.

    I liked Mikal's list, except

     

    1) Wear super tight jeans, Levi's or Lucky, not Wranglers.

    2)  Have a hot goatee, clean shaven of course.

    3)  Have a huge bulge in his pants.  (No you pervs, caused from insane money in his wallet!!)

    4)  Smell like something super sexxxy, cheapass Axe could cut it.

    5)  Have a huge bulge in his pants.

    I dunno BLTN, but azrob seems to be advertising that he meets 4 out of 5 - not bad?  He's obviously one broker that "gets it", notice the top buttons undone - discrete, yet provocative.  Yeh azrob!  You go boy!  Shake that money maker!

    Top button is undone, but he's wearing a shirt underneat.  Seems like a waste of a perfectly good top button being undone.

     

    azrob is fine, and I like older men, I better stop before I get in trouble. 

     

    Carrie thinks I have a daddy complex.  My bf just turned 35 on Wednesday, I turned 25 in April.
