Why I Work by Referral:
Relationships are more important than transactions. You may have noticed that many real estate agents take a transactional approach to sales—identifying clients, closing the deal, and then moving on to the next one. I choose not to work that way because I believe you deserve more from the professional you decide to work with. That’s why I work by referral. Since my primary source of new business is referrals from people who know and trust me, I don’t have to spend time prospecting and promoting myself. I can dedicate myself fully to the activities that benefit you most and always deliver truly exceptional service.
You control my business. I know that I must earn your future referrals, so I aim to exceed your expectations. I have a vested interest in making sure that you are completely satisfied at the end of our transaction together. I want you to be so “fired-up” that you can’t wait to tell your friends and family about me and the fantastic service you received! When you come across an opportunity, I’d appreciate you referring me to great people like yourself, who would benefit from the excellent service and personal attention I provide.
I devote myself to serving the needs of my clients before, during and after each sale. Instead of disappearing after the closing, you can expect me to keep in touch. I will send you valuable information each month, and will also call from time to time just to check in and see if you need anything.
Working by referral is all about trust. Let’s face it, when we’re seeking a service, we look for someone we can trust—someone proven, who comes highly recommended and is already on our side.
What Can I Do for You? Before, During and After the Sale:
There are many ways I can be of service to you outside of an active real estate transaction, so please don’t hesitate to call. Rely on my list of pros; consider me your source of referrals for all types of businesses, whether related to real estate or not. I have partnered with competent professionals who would be happy to serve you. Transaction related: lenders, legal professionals, closing agents, home inspectors, pest control services, insurance agents (home, auto, health), movers. Other business professionals: financial planners, tax advisers, doctors, dentists. Home repairs and improvements: handymen, general contractors, interior designers, roofers, painters, flooring installers, plumbing/ electrical/HVAC specialists. Landscape/maintenance: yard and pool services, house cleaners, window washers. If you need a referral to a provider that is not mentioned here, feel free to ask; I may know just the person you’re looking for!
Real Estate News You Can Use:
I can provide you with up-to-date information and statistics on local market conditions, which can differ substantially from national market conditions and what you hear in the media. Maximize resale potential; feel free to ask for specific advice on home maintenance or suggestions for upgrades that will enhance your property’s resale value. Utilize community insight; I’m always happy to provide information on community amenities such as parks, schools and trails, or even local special events. Discuss market value; request a market analysis when you need an estimate of your home’s current value for a potential refinance or for insurance, estate planning or property tax purposes. I’m also available to discuss issues or new developments in the community that could affect property values. Furthermore, I can help you or a family member secure the services of a like-minded real estate professional in another part of the country.
The Value of Referrals:
90% of consumers worldwide say they are most likely to trust the recommendations of the people they know. This is a figure that is well above any other form of advertising, according to recent market research conducted by The Nielson Company.
Oh, by the way®… I’m never too busy for your referrals.
