Choosing the right estate agent can be a difficult task. Here are the top 3 things you should look for when searching for the right estate agent:
In the digital era where most things are done on your phone, you need an estate agent that is available. They need to be available to take your calls, text you back and look at emails everyday, and when you need it. Working hours for most estate agents will work parallel with yours. With no function to speak to them outside of those, what do you do?
One thing all estate agents need to have is a smart phone. If you have questions or have a house you want to see, it’s the agents responsibility to be available to you. If not, then that’s not a good fit at all.
The right estate agent has to be creative and not just in how they negotiate your sale. They need to be creative in marketing, using video, and making sure your listing photos are of a high quality. They have to be very creative in the way they market your home as well as creative in how they negotiate. So take a look at their listings before you call them out. It could be the difference in achieving the right and true value of your home.
When choosing the right estate agent, you are trusting that person with your most prized asset. Certainly from a financial perspective. So you need the right fit for you. In most cases, the person you meet on the valuation meeting won’t be the person you interact with throughout your home moving experience. Most will be employed to take properties on the market. So who is going to look after you and be there for you when you need them? So you need an agent who understands you, understands your home and why you bought it and why you love it. You need an agent who knows your situation and why you are moving. The right estate agent is someone that you can trust to work in your best interests from start to the finish to negotiate the best price for your home.
Choosing the Right Estate Agent in Lennon James Property
So those are the 3 things you should look for in an estate agent. At Lennon James Property, I’m pleased to say, we absolutely cover all 3.
When I set up Lennon James Property, I wanted to be different from the other high street agents. I appreciate that buying and selling a home isn’t always easy and can be a stressful and emotional time. When we work with a client we spend time getting to know them and their home. We want to understand what’s special about it. Whether it’s the way the morning sun hits the breakfast table or the lawn which could be a perfect make-shift football pitch for a growing family. All this is captured in videos and other creative content and then targeted to the right audience at the right time.
We are looking to break the mould at Lennon James Property and do things differently. We put people at the heart of everything we do. Lennon James Property can offer clients something unique compared to high street agents. We maximise digital strategies to ensure Lennon James properties are being seen and viewed by the right people at the right time. The results of this means the value of a home is maximised.
