I have a friend with a relative who has just sold a home in another part of the state and wants to buy a condo in the Natick/Framingham/Ashland area.
I asked her if she was working with a Realtor. Her answer was that she had gone out to see a couple of properties with one.
I asked “How did she find out about (Insert Name)?”
“Oh, her daughter cleans her house. But she won’t sign any kind of agreement or anything.”
Hmmm. Good luck to both of them.
Whether it’s buying that new pair of Uggs or choosing a Buyer Advisor, making decisions can be agonizing.
Nobody wants to make a mistake and look foolish.
Choosing a Realtor seems to me to be very similar to what I have seen about online dating (Disclaimer: I have no personal experience in online dating).
You look at pictures, read profiles, look at listings and when you find one (or several) agent that seems like a match, you fill in that Contact Me form and hope for a response.
Maybe you hit it off. If not, on to the next prospect. And the next. And so on.
In my experience, many buyers are reluctant to commit to one agent. They seem to feel that it restricts them in some negative way. Frankly I don’t understand this mentality. It’s self-defeating.
Like serial dating, every time you meet a new agent you’re starting from scratch. It’s impossible to develop a meaningful and productive professional relationship.
Hey, we don’t have to get married- or even engaged! Let’s agree to be exclusive.
How will that serve you and your real estate objectives?
- I will know you, your needs and goals. No valuable time will be wasted looking at properties that don’t fit your criteria.
- You will receive a level of personal service and communication reserved only for my buyer clients.
- Ultimately, I will make your search for a Natick or Wellesley area home an easier, stress-less, positive experience.
Call, text, or email me. We can meet at Panera in Natick. I hear it’s a fun place for a first “date”!
