What to Expect From Your REALTOR When Selling

What to Expect From Your REALTOR® When Selling

Working with a REALTOR® for the sale of your home will ensure your best interest will be kept in mind throughout the whole process. Not all real estate professionals can call themselves REALTORS®, and that is why it makes the difference.

Your REALTOR® Will Guide You

Working with a REALTOR® will ensure that you are guided through the process of selling your home. Starting from the evaluation process to closing, it is your REALTOR®’s duty to be aware of current market conditions and requirements necessary for the transaction to take place.

Your REALTOR is required to let you know of all expenses associated with the process of selling your home to ensure that you are going into this process knowing exactly what to expect.

REALTORS® Service Your Needs

From the first point of contact, a REALTOR® will work to determine exactly where you lie within the process of selling your home. Introductory questions may be along the lines of “When do you plan to sell your home?” or “How much do you hope to sell for?”, and they will continue to ask more questions in order to get a full picture of your situation and how they can be of most value to you.

REALTORS® have large networks of professionals to even further support you outside of their realm of expertise.

Accurate Home Valuations

REALTORS® go through specific training in order to generate accurate home valuations. They have access to a series of resources that allow REALTORS® to provide an accurate number that will make sure you get the most out of the sale of your home.

It is a REALTORS® duty to provide accurate valuations, and seek out any property details that may increase or decrease the price of the home in order to accurately represent the home. Once a price has been determined by the REALTOR, they will walk you through a CMA and work with you to establish the final listing price.

Skilled Negotiations With Your REALTOR®

REALTORS® are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with sellers. Tempers can flare and heels can dig on. Your REALTOR® is an expert at smoothing things out.

REALTORS® are experienced in arranging fair deals. Your Agent 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.

Adherence to Standards

The title of REALTOR® is reserved for individuals that are part of the Canadian Real Estate Association. These individuals will have had to go through training and pass a write exam to earn the title. Once a REALTOR®, professionals are held to strict standards set forth by The REALTOR® Code Of Ethics.

This Code of Ethics has been put into place to protect you and your best interest, and to ensure you only get the best out of your real estate transaction.

Legal know-how? They know how.

There is a lot more paperwork in the background of a seller's transaction, that’s why working with a REALTOR® will ensure that you will not miss anything. REALTORS® are required to stay up to date with legal requirements and standard paperwork needed for processing transactions.

As large transactions can fall through at the slightest complication, your REALTOR® is specially trained to recognize problems and provide solutions before they even arise, to stay on track and keep the proceeding moving. They will be able to provide you with a network of resources to make sure that you are ready to close on time.

As a REALTOR with several years of experience and a Building Technology background, I understand the complexities of buying and selling real estate. I take pride in providing excellent customer service based on honesty and professionalism. My knowledge in design, construction and building inspection can make a significant difference for buyers who need insight and guidance finding the right Home in Salmon Arm or the Shuswap.   My technical skills and understanding of the real estate industry, combined with my commitment to hard work and customer service, have enabled me to exceed my client's expectations and consistently achieve successful outcomes. 
Royal LePage professionals understand that a house is only a home if the people who live there feel safe. I unanimously agree and proudly support by donating a part of my commission to helping individuals and families find safety from domestic abuse. Since its founding in 1998, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has proudly grown to become the largest public foundation in Canada dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and domestic violence prevention. Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company with its own charitable foundation. 
My clients can trust that I will be honest with them about their home or the home they are considering buying and its current market value. I strive to create a realistic set of expectations through an open dialogue and always provide the resources and market intelligence needed to ensure my clients can make well-informed decisions.
My real estate services are focused in the market area surrounding the Shuswap Lake in British Columbia, including Salmon Arm, Blind Bay, Sorrento, the North Shuswap, Enderby, Armstrong and Sicamous, so if you're in the area and search for "Realtors near me" or Royal Lepage Salmon Arm and I'll definitely show up. However, if your needs fall outside the Shuswap region, I have access to a broad referral network and can help my clients wherever their needs are. My services cover various real estate types, from single-family residential, condos and townhouses to vacant land and mobile homes. Homeownership provides a haven for families to grow and prosper, symbolizes stability and achievement, and often represents the most significant single investment people will ever make. I am passionate about the real estate industry and the positive impact I can make on the lives of my clients, all the while being patient, open-minded, empathetic, and showing genuine concern for your needs. I am eager to share my knowledge and expertise and look forward to working with you!
