With over 2000 Realtors in the Spokane area, selecting a listing agent and office can be a difficult and important task. After over a dozen years of being involved in Real Estate transactions with almost every office in Spokane and 100's of Realtors, we have some unusual, candid and unbiased insight as to who can best represent your interests. When we opened in 1997 we needed someone to take care of our clients with homes to sell. We went through the entire roster of Realtors, selecting those that had a combination of the following qualities:
•Extensive experience, 3+ years in Real Estate.
•Excellent reputation within the Real Estate community.
•Offices with good brokers and management.
•Good rapport with current and past clients.
•Realtors that we had seen put their client's interests before their own.
If you have a home to sell, and you want some unbiased insight about who to call, call us first.
•Do not list your home for a period greater than 120 days, in a fast market, 90 days should be sufficient for you to either sell your home or at least enough time for your listing Realtor to prove their worth.
•Do not list with a Realtor that you do not feel you would be able to sit down and enjoy their company through a long dinner.
•Do not list with a Realtor that you have any difficulty reaching by phone. If you call a Realtor and they do not return your call until the next day, imagine what is happening when potential buyers call on your 'for sale' sign or newspaper ad. By the time they return the call, the buyer has called on another sign and is being toured around by another Realtor, looking at other homes!
•Do not list with a Realtor until you call at least 3 references of past clients, and 3 references of Realtors that they have worked with in the past few months. The quality of a Realtor can often be discovered by the praises of their competitors.
•Do not fire a Realtor because your home has not sold. The seller in almost every transaction ultimately sets the price, condition and availability of when the home can be seen. These are the three most decisive factors in receiving an offer.
•Do fire a Realtor for lack of communication, misrepresentations, unfulfilled promises, obvious inexperience, bad advice, or if at any time you felt you were not told the truth.
