We have been reviewing agent production around the Broomfield and metro area for our year beginning meeting. There are over 17,000 licensed agents and 9735 agents had at least 1+ closing leaving about 45% with NO Closing! Which agent do you want to work with in selling your home or to help you through the buying process? It really does make a difference as we know you should want to reduce hassle and increase your happiness.
You can ask how many closing your agent had and for the last two years with 30 on average I’m in that top 9% of all agents. But maybe you want to check an agent out before meeting and that’s pretty easy these days. For the listing agents you look at the web for some basic things. How about photos to start? When I find a home with no photos I just move on and I bet you do too. A good Realtor can load 25 photos into the MLS along with a video show.
There is a great new Ranch home in Broomfield that has only exterior photos and that’s better than none. Does that give the seller the best service and maximum exposure to sell the home? Here is the outside I shot today for a client. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYtzWHBAAAA&feature=share&list=UU-ABrhA8pWvgybeBwPC-lOQ
A few other quick checks in your selection of an agent to list in Broomfield is how are home showing set? How do buyers agent get those showing instructions and approval? A service that allows net access, phone access or can you call for that quick approval. There are some you call the agent who may not always be available to quickly set the showing. For sellers a text permission from the owner is simplest for many owners. Lots of ways and what is the easiest to get the buyers in should be the goal.
For the buyers agents here in Broomfield it’s simple questions to check market knowledge. Do they know West of Sheridan is Boulder Valley Schools and that East side is Adams 12? The buyers usually know what district they want and you should expect your agent to have this minimum of knowledge. Where is the church, Starbucks, dog parks, gym and liquor stores are common questions I get asked!
I work full time around Broomfield and the northern metro and love the excitement of connecting seller’s and buyers for that win-win transaction. When you are ready for that kind of service then give me a call and lets work out the path to get you to where you want to be.
