This is a question recently asked by Chelle on our Facebook page…
“Can I ask how you are different. Every agent I have dealt with has said how much better they are in one way or another . So please can you let me know how you work different to others. I am wanting to sell at some stage . But need convincing why not to go private.”
After a quickly expressing that it was impossible to demonstrate all the ways we are different in a short post, and encouraging her to delve into our website for more information, our reply boiled down to…
“In a nutshell – think of us more like your Solicitor, Accountant, Doctor or any other professional specialist. We are not ‘salespeople’ here to talk you into something [so we can get a commission]. We are here to protect, advise and serve in your best interests.
You engage us to use our specialist knowledge & experience to YOUR advantage. Like other true professions, our fees are based on the actual work and outgoing costs involved in serving just you.
For example, unlike a commission salesperson – we wouldn’t try to “convince” you not to sell privately just so we can take a big % of your properties value. Sometimes a private sale is the best solution for our clients and all you might need is a little guidance along the way. Or maybe just a few hours help negotiating and drafting the contract with a private buyer you’ve already found. In which case you would only be paying for a few hours work.
Maybe you need us to manage the entire selling process from pre-market prep – to unconditionally sold – while ensuring you maximise how much you bank.
Every client, their situation and property are different and require tailored solutions. The point is, we can’t possibly know how we can best help you [if at all] until we first understand your personal situation. Hope that helps – yell out of you would like to know more or want a personal call.”
