My Four Key Advantages
1) Proven Performance
By combining my past professional and educational experience (V.P. Chase Bank; MBA-DePaul University) with my profound determination to exceed client expectations, I've consistently remained the top area Broker.
Although performance statistics are important, I'm most proud of the relationships I've built with my clients and the resulting testimonials - which I encourage you to review (click here). As with my previous clients, I'm confident that I can help you find your dream house or sell your current home while minimizing your stress and exceeding your expectations!
2) Expert and Personal Service
I've built my excellent reputation and performance record by providing both expert and personal service. While some Realtors seem to become difficult to find once they've listed your house, I take great pride in being very reachable and will always personally answer your questions and proactively keep you informed of showings, feedback, market activity or (in the case of a home search client) newly available homes.
I accomplish this by having my support personnel handle many of the administrative/behind-the-scenes tasks involved with buying or selling a home, thereby allowing me to focus my attention, time and energy on you - my client. As my client you'll talk with me - not be passed off to an assistant or associate!
3) Extensive Internet Marketing
Today's buyers preview online before going out with their agents. Accordingly, it's vital that your home be on the websites used for these searches. When I list your home, you can be confident that my extensive Internet marketing and listing "syndication" - complete with professional photos and virtual tours - will give your home the maximum possible exposure on ALL the key local/regional/national real estate websites as well as many niche websites. I'm also continually monitoring the Internet landscape for emerging real estate websites and adding them to my syndication list.
A quick note about agent/broker websites:
When a buyer searches online, they want to see all available homes - not just those of a particular broker. Accordingly, brokers who spend time, energy and marketing dollars to improve their search engine rankings do so in an attempt to garner new clients - not to sell your home. Don't be convinced otherwise.
While I'm very pleased with my website's search engine rankings - my energy is always focused on finding or selling your home - not promoting my website. Nevertheless, it will play an important role in the sale of your home by providing more information (descriptions, pictures, virtual tour, etc) to those who are directed there by a syndicated Real Estate website, the yard sign, an open house or my other advertising.
4) Premium Featured Home Placement
In addition, to the extensive Internet placement/syndication mentioned above, I also provide premium "Featured Home" placement on the top real estate websites - including the top ranked websites ZILLOW.com, TRULIA.com, REALTOR.com, YahooRealEstate and HOMES.com. This means your home can be one of the first seen when a buyer searches for a home in your town!* More exposure can mean better results! Most Realtors don't offer Featured Home placements.
* Based on Homestore Inc's analysis (measuring the average number of property showings for Featured Homes versus property showings for non-Showcase Listings), homes that are marketed using REALTOR.com's Featured Homes Marketing System get 500% more exposure.
