Why I am a good Realtor

Reasons I have been successful in real estate:
  • No other agent will be driven as much as I to provide exemplary service and get the results you want.  To get the highest price possible, I will attract the most buyers with my strong and effective marketing program. My listings get on more than 100 real estate portals and websites, and they will reach almost all Los Angeles County Realtors and real estate brokerages.  My descriptions and promotions of the properties I enter onto the MLS will be compelling and convincing. This is important because most buyers are represented by Realtors, and buyers and their agents search the MLS.
  • I plan and expect my transactions will be problem-free and will run smoothly and profitable for my buyers and sellers. I want every transaction to be a great and lucrative experience for my clients. My transaction coordinator is an exceptional and well-trained lady from one of the best professional TC company (TheTCadvantage.com – Jessica Muramatsu). In addition, I oversee and coordinate the entire transaction with the escrow/title company, inspectors, appraiser, the buyer’s agent, and the buyer’s lender to be sure there are no financing problems and to prevent a TFT (transaction fell through). Also, I have never had a complaint from a client during my 17 years as a Realtor.
  • When representing sellers, no other agent will feel as obligated as I to protect your interests. That includes trying to get the buyer to be responsible for termite damage, dry rot, and any other needed repairs, and being sure the buyer is qualified. Prospective buyers will need a lender’s pre-approval letter or proof of funds (POF) if an all-cash offer before an appointment is made to see the property. You can sell “as-is” if you like, but there are pros and cons to be explained. One pro is that you won’t have to deal with any needed repairs. One con is that buyers may think there is something wrong with the property or the seller might be hiding a property defect. But there is something a bit odd when a seller advertises “as-is.” It is a duplication of the default in paragraph 11 of the standard residential purchase agreement (RPA). I will email a blank copy of the RPA if you like, and an explanation of all 108 paragraphs,
  • No other agent will keep you informed as well as I – from the day your home is listed to close of escrow and recording with the county clerk. Emails or phone calls are daily, but emails are preferred to avoid any misunderstandings and to have a “paper trail.”
  • For condos and townhouses, I am very HOA-savvy, and I keep up with all regulations, including the Davis-Stirling Act.
  • Establishing an accurate and true market value list price is very important. I study and carefully analyze the comps, then discuss them with the seller who establishes the price. I never “buy the listing” like too many agents do. Here is an example of buying a listing (an unscrupulous act and damaging to the seller): An agent who tries to get the listing tells seller that the property’s fair market value is $850,000 and he/she can get the home sold at that price, when accurate comps and other agents’ comps come up with a value of $825,000. So, the seller says let’s do it. Two or three weeks later the new listing agent says to the owner, “we need to reduce the price because there is no interest at $850K.” (the agent planned this from the beginning), End of story is that the purchase price was less than the $825K true market value because the buyer thought something was wrong with the property because the price was reduced. Often, prices are reduced more than once. This is one big reason why we see many reduced prices on the MLS.  The lesson is that sellers should diligently study the comps with their agent. In a really hot seller’s market (much greater demand than supply, low inventory, prices increasing, etc.) agents and sellers can often get away with inflated list prices. But the best way to take advantage of a hot seller’s market is to generate multiple offers with a low list price and let the competing buyers drive up the price.                                                                                                 ###
