I Told You So!

Tags: #Representation

Want some gossip on what happens behind the scenes? Well, there are so many stories to tell. There is an agent perspective, a client perspective, the neighbours sure have an opinion as well & of course, the media doesn’t make our life any easier. 

However, having SOLID #representation is KEY to a successful real estate transaction. I always endorse the fact that it’s not about my compensation that should be your 1st concern, but how we can get you TOP dollar for your home. We are used to pushing boundaries, time & again. Anyone can sell your home, you can sell it yourself with a "For Sale By Owner" lawn sign (however please don’t, that's not in your best interest). It has been a seller’s market since I was licensed in 2014. That seems to be the trend.

What should be looking for in your #representation? 

Our founding principles are above. We built a brokerage around the principles! Let us tell you why.

The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) and Nanos Research recently conducted a survey to gauge consumer sentiment and overall satisfaction around working with a REALTOR®. The research took place from May 3 – 30, 2021 and surveyed Canadians active in the housing market. The goal was to learn more about what factors consumers cite for choosing to enlist the help of a REALTOR®, as well as why they would choose not to.

There are, of course, many things clients look for in a REALTOR® and the top three reported by the survey come as no surprise. When asked about the most important attributes a REALTOR® should display, the highest-ranked by consumers was, “honesty and integrity” closely followed by “knowledge of the purchase process” and “negotiation skills”.

These attributes make sense when standing alongside the No. 1 most valuable service consumers believe a REALTOR® can provide when buying: helping them find the right home.
