Why to List your Home with Me?
It is a "HUGE" decision to list your home for sale. This is arguably your largest investment of your life, therefore you want to make sure you choose the right agent to ensure you get the most out of your investment while receiving top notch service.. When you put your house on the market, there are a lot of things that have to be considered.
My first question is always Why? Why do you plan to sell your house? Do you have to relocate immediately? Decided to downsize your household? Want to explore a new locale? Or are you just want to profit from a booming market? When you decide to put your house up for sale, your motivation is crucial. If you're not really motivated then I need to know the reason.
I would want to know if you are truly driven to sell or are you simply experimenting, thus any agent who interviews you should ask you this question. From an agent's standpoint, this is a significant time and financial investment, and if you're unmotivated, I might not want to take the listing either.
As a highly trained and experienced real estate professional, I have the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to help you successfully sell your home.

I will provide you with personalized attention and guidance throughout the entire process, from preparing your home for sale and listing it, to negotiating offers and closing the deal.

Many people don't realize that the brand isn't what matters most when selling your home, it's the agent and what they bring to the table. Calling a RE/MAX agent doesn't guarantee you the results you are looking for. I worked for REMAX for two years and I left for a smaller brokerage that is more of a tight family than an office with 600 agents that don't talk or know each other.
Now most of us agents have the same tools, similar gameplans and strategies at our disposal but you have to work with someone you're comfortable with. You also have to be careful because in a tougher market when you're interviewing agents to list your home with, you should interview everyone and sleep on it. Every agent is going to try to push the pen across the table and get you to sign before they go. Look at the sale price they promised, their own proven statistics, their gameplan and the timeline in which they feel the home will sell. Then sit down and look at what feels right to you and make the call. Don't go with someone because you feel compelled to, they're your neighbour or a family member you have to go with someone you want because at the end of the day this is your largest investment sot make sure it's in the right hands. If who I mentioned above is a true professional then they will for sure understand. I'd rather save a freindship then risk losing one on the sale of my home.
Now if one of these agents sales numbers are way higher than the other agents you interviewed, then they likely are trying to do what we call as "buying the listing" in hopes greed will sway you in their favour and they will get you to sign with them in hopes of making that much more money. I will assure you that they will be coming to you with a price reduction in the coming weeks as no offer has come in and the market will always tell you what your home is worth.

OTHER SALES TRICKS
In case you were unaware there are many other sales tricks to that are done to try to win over a listing. That's why you want to ask for proven track records, google the agent to get their carbon footprint, check reviews (we're in that day and age). Mnay agents can fudge their numbers or reword designations to sound more reqarding than they actually are. You will see sales ploys to offer to buy your home if they don't sell it (read the fine print here!!!), offers of free staging or home renovations. You have to be very naive to think that something is free. When you see free staging it typically means the agent will pay for a consultation with a stager and you can decide whether to pay for staging or they do indeed get the staging done for you but you'll pay 6% commission on the back end of the sale instead of 5%. Generally this makes the agent even more money than if you just paid for the staging yourself. Hey if it sounds to good to be true...
