Sooner Rather Than Later


When you are thinking of selling your house, don't forget to check out the agent before you sign that listing agreement.


Call to see how they answer questions on their current listings. Get references and make contact.

Check out their marketing of other neighborhood homes.



Take a look at everything your agent is doing on your home.  Look at those photos and  actual listings to see what the public is seeing.

Sellers and listing agents should be a team in marketing the home. 

 Sellers need to be proud of the marketing and feel good about their choice of agent.

Good morning Margaret. The seller and listing agent as partners. Priceless! Enjoy your day.

In a related subject, I was chatting with an agent yesterday that was about to spend some money hiring someone to do her social media.  I asked her what the potential hiree did.  She had no clue.  I suggested checking out his past works to see if she wanted to spend money on what he did.  It was like a light bulb going off over her head.  I think sellers are the same way when they are told to check out the marketing of the agents they are interested in interviewing.

Chris Ann Cleland So true would like to see you blog about this. Research and interview anyone you hire...whether agents, lawyers, doctors or social media.
