After spending 20+ years on the lending side of commercial and residential real estate, handling complex commercial transactions as well as hundreds of residential transactions, it is my honor to continue “over the top” attitude of SERVICE – as my driving principle as a real estate agent.
It is my intention to treat you, the client, the same way you would want to be treated if you were the REALTOR® - handling all aspects looking through the lens of The Golden Rule.
SELLER - Ask me about my FLAT FEE commission for Sellers. This has saved Sellers thousands of dollars and always delivering FULL service. I spend approx. $1,000 of my personal funds to to help get your home market ready - BEFORE it hits the market and MLS. Overwhelmed about getting your home market ready? Need someone to assist with decluttering? Do you need me to spearhead an Estate Sale? Need a pre-listing home inspection? I have a complete list of trusted professionals to get it done.
BUYER - Ask me about my COMMISSION REBATE for Buyers. It is a pleasure to rebate a portion of my commission to you / your family. How can I do this? 1.) I am NOT required to share commission with a TEAM leader (yet I have a FULL support team of "above grade" agents) 2.) I am NOT required to share commission to pay national franchise fees. I choose to share what would normally be required to pay a team leader (aka brokerage) with the Buyer. When title companies prepare the Closing Statement, they comment that a rebate of commission from a real estate agent is RARE. My thoughts are, [in my most sarcastic thought voice]…."seriously"?
I am a FULL SERVICE, roll up my sleeves REALTOR® who happens to be with an amazing brokerage ( AmeriTeam Realty) where I pay $625 per transaction - that's it.
The real estate industry has been undergoing a huge disruption - and it's about time. Have a few minutes? Google >>>> Real Estate Commission Rebuttals Scripts. My favorite - "If a real estate agent can't negotiate full commission for themselves, how are they going to negotiate the highest and best possible price for your property?"
ANSWER: The market, by way of the internet brings Sellers their highest and best price. Is it a fallacy that real estate agents are master negotiators? Possibly. A few decades ago, this was the case. Definitely in the commercial market - but not so much in the residential market. In today's home selling market, it's the SELLER that's the NEGOTIATOR - 100%. Today's agent is the go-between, the mediator, a creative problem-solver (nothing new under the sun) and the protector of earnest monies by monitoring and enforcing contract deadlines to protect the best interest of the client.
As a Seller, you should NEVER agree to pay real estate agent a bonus if they can bring you a buyer by a certain date. This is a very outdated practice. Think of it this way, can anybody convince you to purchase a home? You cannot "sell" somebody into making one of the biggest purchases of their life. As a real estate agent, it is my responsibility to provide the most current data specific to a seller's property in order for the home to be positioned properly for the current market - to allow the market to do what it does - bring in qualified potential buyers - hence netting the seller the most money. ALL Realtors® have the exact marketing tools. MLS, International MLS with all listings being shared via Broker IDX - hitting hundreds of thousands of real estate websites. SOLUTION: Offer the bonus direct to the Buyer- to assist with closing costs, by publishing this in MLS Public Remarks.
I look forward to getting to know more about you and how I can be of service. I live and work out of my home in Longwood. Please call or text 407-603-1220 (or email me) email@example.com) and let's get acquainted!
In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my awesome husband or grown children, but mostly the four (4) grandkids. I enjoy taking in the different walking and bike trails in our area https://www.seminolecountyfl.gov/core/fileparse.php/3273/urlt/SeminoleCoTrails_MasterPlan2021.pdf and doing a bit of gardening (aka weeding).
