The Listing Process

You're a seller. You are interviewing agents. That's great! Here are the 5 questions you want answered:

  1. How available are you during the process?

  2. Do you have a track record?

  3. What will you do to market my home?

  4. What will my home realistically sell for?

  5. How much will I net after closing?

Communication & Details

  • Immediate agent feedback via ShowingTime (when showing agent provides).

  • Communication on market feedback weekly until contracted.

  • Communication on contract status daily once under contract.

  • Guided and represented during contract negotiations.

  • Guided and navigated through the option period.

  • Monitor time sensitive points of the contract.

  • Follow up with Title Co. and Buyer's Lender; monitoring the transaction's progress.

  • Continuous updates to you regarding your listing until closing.

Do You Have a Track Record?

When someone asks about track record, what that means to me is, "Do you know what the hell you're doing? Because if something goes wrong or there is a problem, I want peace of mind you are prepared and experienced enough to mitigate it."

I have done transactions in every niche of residential real estate at every price point, and have encountered issues most Realtors wouldn't see in a 20-year career. (Ask me about my Lucas land deal, or my Fort Worth listing almost burning to the ground, or my triple-close.) I have sold all over DFW with a variety of clients and client-needs. I'm confident I can deliver on your needs, and have your back if something goes wrong. Quite the contrary -- you are hiring me to make your sale smooth! Don't take my word for it though.

What Price Can I Expect to Sell For?

You, as a seller, are going to have a price in your head for what your home should sell for. The market, may have a different price. The appraiser will have yet another price. My mission is to get you the best price; the honest price. One you're excited about. How do we get there?

There are two theories to pricing a home:

  1. Start at the high end of the price range; negotiate down to the eventual market price.

  2. Start at, or slightly below, market value; create a bidding war.

 

Neither is the right way or the wrong way. But, one thing is for sure: a listing is like a gallon of milk. The longer it sits, the quicker it spoils. If a home sits on the market, buyers think there is something wrong.  Don't be the listing people call their Realtor to ask, "Hey, what's wrong with THIS one?" I always recommend to my sellers, better to have a bidding war today than a price drop two weeks from now.
