I think the thing that struck me about both Lech and Lori, and the thing that made both of these transactions so pleasant, was that each of these buyers trusted me. When buyers (or sellers) hire me then aren't willing to trust that I'm on their side and trying my absolute best to fight for them as much as I possibly can, problems always come up. As a consumer myself, I certainly understand why clients are hesitant to trust the agents working for them. But I have seen the same scenario play out over and over for years. When you don't trust your agent, your transaction is going to be difficult. When you hire someone you do trust and relax into the process, even the largest hurdles become no problem to leap right over.
How do you become one of the top real estate agents? In my opinion you have to keep learning through education and experience. All of my wonderful customers from first time home buyers to those of you selling your house help me continue to gain experience every day, and I never stop working on the education part.
A huge thank you to my new friends, the Scanlons, on trusting me with the purchase of their first home in St. Pete. They're such nice people, and I know they'll be so very happy here.
Another big thanks to Chris who has been looking for a place to do some work on and add value to. Well, we found him a completely gutted condo so he can start from scratch and make it wonderful. I can't wait to see it when you finish, Chris!
I've been pretty busy selling properties lately, so I'm behind in sharing them with you. Here's the first one. This one was owned by one of my favorite clients. He buys with me, does a wonderful job rehabbing the properties, then sells them with me.
This cute home was no exception. He replaced the roof and the windows, gutted and replaced the kitchen and the bathroom, and replaced the flooring and light fixtures. He also gave the exterior a facelift with a new coat of paint.
He did a great job, as always, and made my job selling it easy. Now we're off to look for his next project.
