IMPORTANT POINTS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING REALTORS
Whether you are buying or selling, the REALTORS® you select may be your most important decision. After all, you're choosing a business partner! No matter who you decide on, consider these critical points.
You might be surprised to discover how many East Bay real estate agents only work part-time or have other jobs. And well over half quit the business within their first year! Ana and Pascal are both a full time Realtors. So you don't get a hobbyist, or someone who will pick up a referral from time to time. Working with us, you have access to TWO full time professionals. We have been in the Real Estate business since 1992. If you want your home sale or purchase to be a top priority, you want your partners to be long term, full time, with a successful track record for buying and selling local real estate.
Most important? Getting the right price for your home when selling or paying the right price for your home when buying. But if you don’t have a good relationship with your agent, can you be sure they have your best interests in mind? We strive to build trust and rapport with each client we serve. As your real estate partners and liaisons, we are available and quick to respond when you have questions, need to resolve problems, or require further information. Our clients are at ease and feel confident working with us, because they know we are on their side.
We keep up with market stats and current data and provide facts to back up any recommendations. This includes information about recent sales and current activity in your neighborhood. Our clients who are interested can look at our spreadsheets, graphs, and calculations that clearly demonstrate trending directions in the marketplace.
When you're relocating and currently live outside of the East Bay, it's very important to choose local REALTORS® with real experience. This market is very popular now, but it's also very specific. Chances are any amount you might save by having a friend or relative from outside the area serve as your representative will be lost in their lack of knowledge and connections with the area's key players. Our local knowledge and intimate understanding of our micro-neighborhoods as well as established reputation and relationships in the local real estate community are imperative to your success in buying or selling.
You should have a clear understanding of everything a REALTOR® will do to market the home you're selling or help you find the perfect home. With current listings in the area, we consistently tour active inventory. We are agents who will tell you what we know from experience in the market, not what we think you want to hear. Flattery may sometimes get the listing, but it doesn't sell the home.
Savvy East Bay residents and residents-to-be are accustomed to having every means of information at their disposal. Fortunately, today's technology offers many more ways to remain "in the loop" when it comes to your real estate transaction. We are technically experienced and use the latest software to make your transaction as smooth and paperless as possible.
