What have you done that has been very effective in helping to grow the business?
1. Out of the box thinking, Our highly innovative and aggressive marketing practices expose client homes to the highest number of qualified buyers, which helps it sell quickly for top-dollar.
2. Team approach. No less than 4 agents will be working hard to sell each and every listing. Our team will stop at nothing to assure our clients' complete and utter satisfaction with our services.
3. Open line of communication. In addition to the direct feedback and communication that we provide our clients on a weekly if not daily basis, by utilizing HomeFeedback.com's automated system, clients also benefit from real-time, on-demand access to feedback from prospective buyers and their agents.
4. Internet marketing. We list client properties on a wide array of key third party real estate marketing web sites, knowing that a full 24% of buyers currently identify homes of interest online. Our agency's extensive understanding and use of internet marketing strategies guarantees our listings are being seen by qualified prospects.
5. Skilled negotiations. On our clients' behalf, we will expertly help negotiate and synchronize the sale transaction - our expertise in this area assures owners will secure the best possible deal terms.
6. Mission critical industry experience. Our dedicated team has the experience needed to navigate the Las Vegas real estate marketplace while also anticipating and avoiding prospective problems during negotiations and the closing process.
7. Luxury real estate specialists. Listing and selling luxury, high-dollar property is a specialized field requiring a high degree of finesse that takes time and a certain level of intuition to master. Our agency's mainstay is selling upscale property, and each of our agents understands the various nuances required to get the job done in this specialized category.
8. A methodical approach. Before we list a home, we do a full assessment and prepare a custom-tailored market analysis and strategic plan. At this time, we'll also make property improvement recommendations to the seller, as required, to improve salability.
9. Leading edge practices. We employ a number of tools, technologies and strategies that keep us at the forefront of the Las Vegas real estate industry. From home tour podcasts to national scale public relations, you can rest assured no stone will be left unturned as we market our listings.
10. Our track record is proof positive. Even amid an economic recession and the real estate and banking industries in turmoil, our agency continues to successfully transact luxury real estate deals, often going to contract and/or closing in under 30-days.
Wow, it sounds like you are a busy guy!
I still find time for fun. When I'm not negotiating high-end real estate deals or otherwise accommodating my clients, I can be found rock climbing, golfing, dining or traveling around the world.
Robert, that is great advice for anyone planning on entering the real estate field. I really appreciate the time you took to talk with us.
