First and foremost, we put your interest ahead of anything else, even our own. For every client we represent, we carry out our fiduciary duties to you diligently.
Example: A client calls Sophie to set up meeting to discuss selling his house.
Before meeting the client, Sophie did a comprehensive research of the house including the current mortgage carried, the purchasing time, the similar houses that are currently on the market for sale, in contract, sold, the unique points of the location of the house, the possible buyers for this house, etc
When meeting the client, Sophie looked at all options for the client, including the option to rent vs sell. If sell, is it making sense to sell now or later. Is the macro-economic condition in favor of selling now? Is the community housing supply and demand in favor of selling now? Is the community planning for the longer time will make it better for client to hold longer to generate more profits, etc. Did client’s personal and financial situations allow client to hold or require client to sell as soon as possible.
If it’s to the client’s best interest to rent or just refinance to lower monthly payment, Sophie will recommend client not to sell.
Second, Sophie’s deep understanding of the financial market and mortgage lending rules can help you to eliminate the unqualified buyers and minimize the risk of transaction fell through. Sophie has impeccable deal close track record, which means her seller can sell fast and have better financial results.
Example: The house Sophie listed for a seller got multiple offers. One of the buyers who sent offer put a very solid price and seemed to be a good buyer on the first sight. Sophie utilized her sharp knowledge of lending and found out that the buyer’s H1B visa would not be effective in a few months. This means that the buyer will have issue to get a loan. The pre-approval letter submitted together with the offer was not very robust too. Given that, Sophie immediately advised the seller not to put emphasis on this buyer and simultaneously negotiated aggressively with other buyers to increase their prices. The winning offer closed the deal very smoothly and quickly for the seller. The other house with the same size, layout and condition was sold for significantly less compared with Sophie’s listing as the transaction for that house did not close the first time.
Third, Sophie has cutting-edge online and offline marketing approach that generates maximum exposure for your listing.
Example: Sophie writes personal blog for every listing she represents. The blog highlights the selling points of the house and was delivered through email marketing campaign to a large group interested prospects. The direct mailing post cards that feature your house are also sent to thousands neighbors.
The timing was also meticulously managed so that the info of your house arrived right before the first open house to generate most interest for your open house.
Excellence lies in details and deep commitment. If you are considering selling, set up an appointment with Sophie first to find out what are the many more things that Sophie does for her clients and help her clients get the best.
