up button on this video as well. So let’s just cut to the chase. I live in the San Gabriel Valley of Southern
California and I know realtors throughout North America, but I do know that not all
of my friends and acquaintances fall into the realm of being classified as a good realtor. However, as an agent, I have access that enables
me to scope out, analyze, and even do phone interviews of agents on your behalf. If you need a realtor and don’t live in my
area, let me know. I’m happy to do research for you and interview,
vet and narrow down according to what you need. I will not recommend a realtor simply because
I might know them or because we have a common brokerage or training program. I’ll recommend
them to you only if they meet the standards that would allow me to recommend them to my
own kids or to use them myself. You’re probably wondering what I’ll charge
you. The answer is nothing. But to be transparent, If you choose to work with the realtor that
I’ve recommended, I will ask that realtor to share a little bit of their commission
with me. That fee will not come back to you. Why do I offer this service? Because I know that there are both good and
bad realtors and I believe that everyone deserves a true professional when they need to buy
or sell a home. So give me a call or message me about what
you need and when, and let’s see what we can do to get you to your goals. If you’d like to perform the realtor search
on your own, stay tuned and I’ll share things for you to look for that will save you some headaches. A great agent will be a pricing specialist
with a strong understanding of market trends and competition. They will be an effective time manager with
skills, tools and technology to make your experience smooth, easy and timely. They will be a market insider. Beyond pulling
stats off the computer, they’ll know the ins and outs of the local
market and they’ll know the market trends and the area developments. They’ll be a strong negotiator, knowing the
best way to enter negotiations even before they begin so that the best outcome is ensured. They’ll be an effective closer, meaning they’ll
understand all of the contracts, disclosures, agreements, and timelines in assuring that
a deal will not fall apart through error or lack of knowledge. What do you think is the most important point
of those that I mentioned? Comment below. Typically the most common issues we see from
amateur, inexperienced, or lazy realtors includes not understanding how to price a home. This for obvious reasons is bad for sellers,
it’s bad for buyers as well because without this knowledge, your agent won’t know how
to guide you on making an offer. They also typically have bad presentation.
For sellers, they haven’t guided you on how to prepare or stage your home, and they have not used professional photos in their marketing. Both sellers and buyers lose out here. Lack of marketing. Today’s buyers are tech savvy and they’re
online, so your home needs to be online as well. An amateur or lazy agent will often
just put a sign in the yard and do nothing else. You’re home might be the dream home for John and Susie,
but John and Susie don’t know it’s on the market. A poor realtor also usually has inadequate
knowledge. They often won’t know what’s going on in the
local market. They may not understand all the paperwork
that’s needed or the deadlines that go along with them. A transaction can fall apart because of this,
and negotiation skills are very often lacking. And finally, there are often communication
issues. Today’s market is fast paced. Your agent needs to keep you updated on everything
happening in your transaction or your home search. Of course, your agent shouldn’t be expected
to answer the phone in the middle of the night, but they should be accessible to you and they
should return your calls and your messages quickly. And now that we’ve learned a bit about good
