Ok, I'm ranting a bit here--and maybe I shouldn't be upset that Realtors do this, as it makes things easier for the good guys (that's us wink, wink).
Here it is: Agents tell home SELLERS something along the lines of, Your home is worth about $235,000...sign here, rather than actually showing the Clients why that price is being recommended.
NO! This is probably the most expensive thing those Clients have ever sold, and you're going to tell me that they should trust you blindly?
Get the Clients in front of a computer. Show them what has sold, what's active, click on some pictures...find good comparable homes and SHOW them exactly WHY you're making the pricing recommendation. Show them a market absorption rate (if you don't know what that is, Realtors, then you're at the wrong company).
Make certain the Clients are on the same page as you when it comes to pricing something so important.
That's not asking a lot, is it?
Oh, if you want to know an approximate value of a home--nearly instantly, then click on:
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.

THE MILEAGE CONUNDRUM – WHY MILEAGE DEDUCTIONS ARE VULNERABLE TO IRS
"You came recommended from a reliable source and gave us the impression from the beginning that you cared about our needs and limitations. You made available every property to meet our needs; even the internet website postings. You were accessible to show the properties when we desired to see them. You were patient for over 6 months while we waited for the right property to meet our needs. Chip made it a personal issue to himself and his team to find the best house for us and to care about our needs and limitations. We felt his struggles with what we struggled with and felt the joy in him and the team when we felt joy. We connected! Come on, what can we say? Y'all are an awesome team! Just keep treating every Client the way you treated us; with honesty, respect and integrity and you should not only have a loyal clientele but the knowledge of having truly helped those you work with. Our experience with TREMP has been both a pleasure and a blessing. Feeling that we were not going to be easy Clients to work with because of our limitations, we assumed that we would have been treated with an uncaring attitude. However, from the moment we walked through the door to the time we signed the contract on our house we felt like family. They made us feel like we were part of a team reaching for a common goal to find our family a home and a future in that home. We walked away saying, "Wow! We will be friends forever." Thank you TREMP for a wonderful home experience."
