Benefits of Hiring a Real Estate Team vs hiring a single agent or selling on your own We will verify the value of your property by doing a Comparative Market Analysis. We will use an Active and Aggressive Marketing Plan to expose your property to the maximum number of potential buyers. We walk you through every step of the marketing and closing process so you don’t miss important details. Listing with us, your property is instantly accessible by over 6000 real estate agents who could show your property to buyers. We also have four licensed agents (Charlotte, George Tom & John) available to show buyers to your home ourselves. We have two admin team members (Susan & Nick) whose top priority is to make sure you get the best customer service possible. We will negotiate all offers on your behalf, to your best possible advantage. We will present your counter offer or acceptance to the buyers’ representative/agent. We will prepare your paperwork and assist you in getting needed information and paperwork to everyone who needs it. We will coordinate the buyer’s agent, the lender, the closing attorney, the inspectors and all the myriad of other people involved in your transaction to make sure your closing occurs without delay. We will stay in weekly contact with closing attorney to assure they have all documents and information in advance of closing to prevent any delays. We will stay in weekly contact with the buyers’ lender to assure they have all documents and information in on schedule to get final loan approval and the package prepared before the closing date. We will assist you in choosing a reliable home inspector, explain the inspection results to you, help you decide what items to have fixed by the seller and negotiate to have those items fixed before you move in. If you are buying elsewhere, we will coordinate with your buyers’ agent handling that transaction to ensure a smooth process.
