Full-time or Part-time? 

 

One thing you may want to consider when you are speaking with realtors is, are they full-time or part-time. You want someone who’s going to be available when you’re available and who focuses on this as their full-time profession.

 

I’m a full-time realtor. My business is actually at the point where I have a full-time associate working with me so that we’re available whenever we’re needed by our clients and we have other team members that we can bring in if we need specialized language skills or other skills that we may not have between the two of us.

 

You expect a certain level of expertise and focus from a professional you are working with and when you know someone is a full-time realtor you know that they’re going to have that level of focus that you require.

Can they provide testimonials? 

 

I think it’s important to choose a realtor who has testimonials and references that they can provide because that’s how you get to know that they’ve actually had clients and that they have been happy working with them. That they’ve got an established track record.

 

Having been in this industry for over ten years, I’ve got testimonials from a wide variety of clients. I’ve had first time buyers to people moving out of their family home and downsizing. It’s nice to see testimonials from those people saying, “You know what, I worked with Paul and he did a great job for us”.

 Do they have a marketing plan? Can they explain it? 

 

When you’re first sitting down with a realtor, in that introductory conversation, you want to ask them, do you have a written marketing plan, what are you going to do with my home. I think the benefits are obvious. You want to understand what your realtor is bringing to the table in terms of what they proposing to do to make sure that you sell your home in a timely manner and for the best price possible. 

 

When I sell a home, I have a written marketing plan that’s unique for each property. So I’m going to meet with my clients, I’m going understand the features and benefits of their home. We’re going to talk about pricing the property, which is a huge part of marketing. So I bring my background, my experience in looking at comparisons in the neighbourhood and making sure that we price it properly. 

 

Number two is exposing it properly to the market, so things like the MLS, things like having floor plans done, professional photography, all of those things that we can make sure that the property will sell quickly and for the highest dollar possible. 

 

 

 Will they explain and guide you through the buying process? 

 

When you’re buying a property, I think it’s really important to have a realtor who will explain the process to you properly, so whether you are a first time buyer or it’s your tenth property that you’re buying you’re going to have different needs but you want to make sure you’ve got somebody who’s going to work with you through the whole process. 

 

Personally I try and work as more of a consultant or an advisor than I do as a sales person, so I’m going to help you, to first of all to view the properties you want, when you want to see them. I’m going to help you once you find that right property, help you decide what an appropriate price would be on that property. All the different things you need to go through the process so that you can be comfortable when its final decision time, that you’ve made a good decision.

 Does their Philosophy and Methods Align with yours? 

 

I think it’s important to have a realtor whose philosophy and methods align with your own. What I think is critical is that you find someone who fits with your personal values and that you communicate well with. I mean, you need somebody who’s going to listen to what your needs are, understand what your needs are and give you the best advice based on your situation. 

 

I look at myself more as an advisor and consultant than I do as a sales person. What I will bring to the table is my expertise, I will give you unbiased advice and I’ll make sure the advice I give you is going to be in your best interests. 

 

Really how we do things is driven by my client’s needs and how they want to do things.
