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.
Ask me about my FLAT FEE commission for Sellers.
Ask me about my COMMISSION REBATE for Buyers. It is a pleasure to rebate a portion of my commission to you / your family.
I am a FULL SERVICE, roll up my sleeves REALTOR® who happens to be with an amazing brokerage ( AmeriTeam Realty) where I pay $595 per transaction - that's it. I am not part of a team or with a national brokerage required to pay franchise fees (although I was when I first started out).
The real estate industry has been undergoing a huge disruption - 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. Definintely in the commerical 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 This is a very outdated practice.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 the bonus in MLS Public Remarks.
I look foward 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) firstname.lastname@example.org) and let's get acquainted!
When I'm not working to help dreams come true for my clients, I spend time with my wonderful husband of 21 years as well as staying busy biking and gardening (aka weeding).
