Why why why? No no no!
Why does this happen?!?
Ashley and Shea came to me on a second attempt to purchase a home of their own. When I asked them why they didn’t reach out to the agent they were working with before, they said that communication had lagged and they felt that they were being led to buy a house that didn’t suit them.
Let me make it clear how I see my job as your buyers agent:
I’m here to show you homes, inform you of our RE market, point out potential issues or features you may not have noticed, to listen and be a sounding board for the goals you’ve set out for your home.
I am not here to sell you ‘on’ a house, especially if you don’t want it. I’ve never sold anyone a home they didn’t want. I don’t do that.
My job is to listen and when you, as a buyer, get that super excited feeling in your belly and your soul that ‘I could really live here’, then I turn my laser focus and experience toward getting you what you want. It makes for such a great buying experience and that is how I run my business.
It takes patience to honor my clients’ process and I have been known to tell buyers that, ‘if the location, condition and price feel right for you, you should consider making an offer’.
Please know this- I can write an excellent offer!
An offer that protects you as a buyer and you don’t pay too much
An offer that is exciting to the seller.
There are so many meta-messages you can send to the seller, and sometimes equally important to the sellers agent, that this offer will amount to a successful sale.
I have a reputation as both a fierce advocate for my buyers and a cooperative, solutions based negotiator.
Give me a job, I’ll show you how it’s done!
