1. Homes are bought by comparison. I have a large inventory at my disposalthrough MLS while you have an inventory of one.2. I am very familiar with competitive houses so I can help you position yourhome well.3. It is hard negotiating for yourself. I have lots of experience in writingcontracts and can negotiate aggressively on your behalf.4. Buyers are not always forthright about their financial situation. I insist onpre-qualifying before I even bring you an offer.5. My lender contacts and mortgage experience help buyers get thefinancing they need.6. Most buyers don’t want to tell the seller why they don’t make an offer. Ican probe the buyer or his agent for that information.7. Any follow up you do with a buyer can be seen as desperation. Ifollow up as part of my job so that you are not perceived in acompromising light.8. I can showcase your improvements better so that you don’t appear likeyou are “selling.”9. Most sellers who spend their time as a For Sale By Owner end up bylisting in the end. A recent NAR survey found that only 11% of sellersnationally ended up selling by owner. Why spend your time and money ifin the end you will hire a REALTOR®?10. Unqualified buyers can tie up your home. I make sure that doesn’thappen.11. Personality conflicts with a buyer can get in the way. I come between thebuyer and the seller so that personalities don’t enter in.12. Most buyers use a REALTOR®, which increases the number of buyers whowill see your home.13. I can mobilize my company agents and other area REALTORS® on yourbehalf.14. An NAR survey of recent closed sellers found that REALTOR®-assistedsales brought in 20% more sales price than For Sale By Owner sales.15. A FSBO sign makes you vulnerable for any curiosity seeker or unsavorycharacter. When you list, only buyers accompanied by a REALTOR® willget into your home.16. Being accessible to show your home limits your personal time and cutsdown the available showing time. When you list, your property will beavailable during normal showing hours and the prospect will always beaccompanied by me or another REALTOR®.17. Additional exposure through MLS and the Internet brings you a higherprice.18. I orchestrate the contract-to-closing process, including the appraisal,buyer-loan process, title, inspections, pest control, survey, etc., taking thisburden off of you.19. I make sure that you are compliant with all laws relating to the sale ofyour home.20. I only get paid when I get the job done.

Ron "Chip" Frank...
For our Purchasing Clients: we make sure you have access to EVERY home (not just those we list, or the three or four that we think you might like); and we will never pressure you.
For our Selling Clients: we market the heck out of your home; we give you updates on what we've done to sell your property every week along with feedback and activity on the home; we can also lease your property should it fail to sell--seamlessly. Finally, if you're ever unhappy with us, or your circumstances change, you can cancel our agreement.

"Y'all were very personable. You made me feel like family. You worked around my schedule to show me houses until we found the perfect one for me. You did great, keep it up! I was impressed at how easy the process was. Y'all kept me informed the entire time and I appreciated that. Y'all did such a great job...I forgive the half of y'all that are Aggie fans! When you have a Realtor that takes care of you like family, why would you choose to work with anyone else?"
