What to Expect From Your REALTOR®
My job is to help you get the most for your home when selling and pay the least amount possible when buying all while removing stress and confusion from the process. Here are just some of the advantages to working with me!
Your REALTOR® Explains the Process
Education is a large part of my business. You are purchasing the most valueable investment in your life and I think it's critical you understand the process from start to finish! Whether you are looking to sell the property you're currently in, or you're looking to purchase a home for the first time I'd love to help show you the way.
REALTORS® Assess Your Needs
One of my jobs as a REALTOR® is to find out what your motivation is for moving and what your plan is for the forseeable future. This isn't because I want to be nosy it's because my advise for your future home is going to differ based on your plan. If you're planning on moving in 5 years we need to think about re-sale value, if you're planning on making this your forever home lets make sure you love the school district and ammenties. A house isn't a home unless you make it one, my job is to help you think of all of the variables you might not have thought of yet!
A Plan to Find Your Dream Home
I will help you recognize what you’re looking for in a new home. An outdoor pool? A double-car garage? A fenced-in yard? A particular building design? What about the neighbourhood? Proximity to schools or work? Site lines to the backyard? My job as your REALTOR® will compare your needs, wants and budget with what is available both on the market and off the market I make recommendations that save you time and effort.
I will also accompany you to view all houses and help you assess their suitability and price. As an expert on a property, I as your REALTOR® can provide facts on the neighbourhood, the cost of utilities, the condition of the home’s features, and so on. In other words, I will work with you to listen to what you are looking for and help you match your wants and needs in the property that best suites your lifestyle and budget.
Access to Properties for Sale
Multiple Listing Service® or MLS® is an exclusive service accessible only through a REALTOR® and it can be a valuable home-searching tool. Through MLS®, the details of a wide variety of listed properties are made available to the REALTOR® you work with. That can save you a tremendous amount of time and effort in your pursuit for the right home.
Through my network and working well with all brokerages in the City I have created a relationship that helps cultivate business before even hitting the market! Working with me will allow you to get into properties before they are on the market, giving you a competitive edge with negotiations.
REALTORS® are Skilled Negotiators
REALTORS® are experienced in arranging fair deals. I will assist in negotiating an offer, acting as a mediator to resolve potential conflicts between you and the seller, and draw up a legally binding agreement. I understand that the negotiations are sometimes the most stressful part. When your emotions are up and down during the transaction my job is to stay level headed and make sure I can clearly articulate what is being asked of both sides to the transaction so that you can make an informed decision.
Honesty and Integrity
Most real estate professionals in Saskatchewan are members of SRA and only members of SRA can call themselves REALTORS®. When you work with a REALTOR®, you can expect not only strict adherence to provincial laws, but also adherence to a Code of Ethics. And that code is very important to you because it assures you will receive the highest level of service, honesty and integrity.
Legal know-how? They know how.
A mishandled document can ruin a sale, or lead to legal action. I have the experience to recognize potential problems early and the resources to help you find solutions and get the process back on track quickly.
Negotiation Skills – To keep the deal on track.
REALTORS® are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with sellers. Tempers can flare and heels can dig in. Having me work as your REALTOR® it is my job to be an expert at smoothing things out.
