If you’re looking at Meridian Idaho homes, you’ve probably encountered a few Realtors® along the way.
And, if you’ve discovered this blog, you’ve probably noticed that I work differently than most other Realtors®.
Plainly stated, I’m not your typical Realtor®.
I have 45 years of real estate experience, including thousands of successful transactions.
That experience allows me to guide my transactions to smooth closings.
I won’t be learning on the job while handling the most valuable transaction of your lifetime.
As many as two-thirds of our local Realtors® are part-timers.
I’ve been a full-time professional during my entire 45-year real estate career.
It’s virtually impossible to be a competent part-time Realtor® with our fast-paced market, low listing inventory, complex paperwork, continuing education, and ever-changing practices.
I limit my clientele to no more than six active clients at a time.
This allows me to personally work with my clients and provide a high level of responsive, personal service.
If I’m fully-booked, I will refer you to another competent colleague with similar business practices.
I’m organized, thorough, diligent, and I answer my own phone.
I don’t need a team to prop me up and embellish my image.
Many real estate teams consist of a couple of agents working together while trying to “brand” a business name.
I have no need for that.
If we mutually decide to work together, you will work personally with me and not be handed off to an inexperienced “buyer’s agent”.
No Sales Persuasion
Serious, qualified buyers don’t need to be convinced to buy a home.
They simply need sound advice to help them find the right home and make informed decisions.
I often advise my buyer clients to NOT buy specific homes after explaining how to evaluate them.
My role is to inform and advise; not “close the deal”.
By Appointment Only
I work by appointment, so please let me know in advance if you would like to meet with me.
I’m not available on short notice because I need time to prepare for your visit.
That preparation includes researching MLS listings, talking with listing agents, confirming availability, driving by listings, and previewing homes for you.
My Intentional Approach
As a first step, we will need to talk in person or on the phone so I can understand your situation.
We need to discuss your wants, needs, likes, and dislikes before beginning your home search.
This is especially important if you don’t live here because I don’t want to waste your time showing you homes that don’t meet your criteria.
Our initial conversation will also help us to mutually determine if we’re a good fit for each other.
Without that conversation, I will not be able to help you.
If you will be financing your purchase, you will also need to get your financing pre-approved to be able to prove to a seller that you can complete your transaction.
Give me a call at (208)938-5533 or e-mail me and let’s talk.
