Do You Want Someone To Sell You? or Consult With You? July 13th, 2007
For years I have tried to think of ways to give people more options on how to accomplish their real estate goals. I have experimented with different approaches over this time but only recently discovered ACRE.
ACRE, (Accredited Consultant in Real Estate), is a new organization of Realtors whose goal is to provide a more transparent relationship between the consumer and Realtor. Take a look at the Consulting Times so that you can understand more about this new real estate model.
It was started by a group of Realtors that included Mollie Wasserman who wrote the book, Ripping the Roof Off Real Estate.
It seemed to fit the way I want to work and so I signed up and now am the only Accredited Consultant in Real Estate in Alaska.
My brother Jay and I have been discussing our fee schedules and now can give options to our clients. There are many different scenarios where you might need a real estate consultant rather than a full blown commissioned Realtor.
For example, perhaps you want to market your home yourself but just need some coaching along the way?we can help.
Or maybe you and a co-worker have already agreed on the basic terms of a sale but would like some guidance to put together a good contract?we can help.
Perhaps you are interested in a home that is for sale buy owner and would like some assurance that the asking price is reasonable?we can help.
If you want your house on the MLS and help in negotiation and management of a transaction, but can handle the rest yourself?we can help.
In fact, we can provide a full blown marketing package with price research, MLS, representation, and transaction management on a consulting basis that will still cost much less than a normal commission structure.
Jay and I have over over 26 years of combined real estate experience in the Matanuska Valley. We know how it works and do this full time.
You will NOT hear any canned sales lines from us. We don?t spend our time practicing sales scripts and role playing them on each other so that we can manipulate you into doing what we want you to do. We do not pressure or manipulate you to do anything.
We feel that our role is to LISTEN to you, and then to try to help you meet the need that you have.
In other words?we ?CONSULT WITH YOU, NOT SELL YOU?.
Give us a call at 907 373?0999 or drop us an email in you are interested in hearing more.
