After careful research, Olivia and Jacob found what they thought to be a top Realtor to sell their home. Even though Jacob’s mother recommended a co-worker friend from her office who sells homes part time, they had decided to search for a more qualified Realtor to sell their home. Jacob’s mother wasn’t too pleased with them for not taking her suggestion of her co-worker, but Olivia and Jacob understood the importance of having a skilled, professional Realtor going to bat for them so they searched on for the right Realtor.
They had begun their search over the internet. When Olivia could, she snuck in a few peeks when she got a few spare minutes at her office, however most searching began at home after she returned from her office where she managed a busy advertising agency. Jacob was just too swamped at his office to help in the search, as his responsibilities of preparing his company’s IPO was very demanding of his time and by the time he arrived home late each evening he was just too beat and by the time the weekend rolled around they were busy with the kids running from soccer practice to soccer matches. Their kids are still at the young age when they had the ball at their feet they didn’t know where to kick it to score a goal; which end goal would they run towards?! What fun! So Olivia had taken the lead for searching for a Realtor to sell their home.
Starting her search on Google, she entered selling your home in Coral Springs. There were a number of Real Estate sites that popped up on the first page of Google’s search results and she noticed that there was one Realtor that seemed to be quite visible appearing a few times. Olivia clicked through on some of the sites where this Realtor was shown. She wanted to find out what this Realtor was all about. She then continued her search visiting a few other sites in search of that just right Realtor. She finally discovered a few possibilities and was leaning towards one but she wanted to speak with a few first before making her final decision.
She spoke with the Realtors she had found online, setting up appointments to meet with them to get a better feel for them and to find out more about how they’d sell their home. When Olivia and Jacob had met with the Realtors at their home they asked them the important, typical questions such as; how long have you been selling homes, what will you do to get our home seen by Buyers, how fast do you sell homes, how close to the list price do you sell the homes, what type of communication can we expect from you and how’s your sense of humor. Yes, they did, they wanted to find out about a Realtor’s sense of humor, as Olivia and Jacob thought a good sense of humor is always an admirable trait; admirable yes, but not your typical question that a Real Estate Agent is asked!
After they met with the different Realtors, the decision to hire one had become quite clear. The obvious choice was her knowledge for selling homes, which was revealed beginning with the moment when Olivia and Jacob had walked her through their home. The Realtor pointed out great features of their home that Buyer’s will love and she also made recommendations of what could be done to make the home even more appealing to a Buyer – great, they thought! This Realtor, they recall, had an impressive internet presence and seemed to be quite knowledgeable and experienced in selling homes as was evident in her many Real Estate articles. The Realtor was everywhere online; she had her own website packed full of useful home selling Real Estate information, was active on many of the Social Media networks such as; Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and many more. Olivia imagined if she was able to market herself as she did, she surely would be skilled at marketing their home for sale to attract the most Buyers. And her customer testimonials were amazing – you should have read what some of what her customers had said about their Real Estate experience, she sounded like someone you could trust! Great, they thought!
