Thanks to a Great Sebastopol Real Estate Agent

By
Real Estate Agent with Healdsburg Sotheby's International Realty

David Mark-RaymondI met a great real estate agent from Sebastopol today. His name is David Mark-Raymond and he impressed me and my clients with his property knowledge, his candor, and his gentle approach to the art of real estate.

We get to meet new people all the time in this business. I blogged about how thankful I am to get to meet new buyers just a few days ago. That's why it was so special for me to meet an agent who I instantly trusted to do the best thing not just for his client, the seller, but for my clients as well.  It's an often forgotten part of the agency relationship, but both the listing and selling agents have duties to their clients that include honesty, integrity, and fair play. I got the strong sense, walking and talking with David, that he holds these principles deep in his being.

I can't tell you much about David Mark-Raymond. I know he's very active in Rotary, a former educator, and a consistent top sales person in his area. I learned that he's thoughtful with how he prepares openings in barbed wire fences in advance. I watched him be considerate and thoughtful of our touring group and the multiple babies in our midst. Last, but by no means least I observed him avoiding the boasts and puffery that too many in our industry treat as standard practice. He left the clients with just the right taste of uncertainty and an urging to check details with the county.

Coldwell Banker Listing Sign for David Mark-RaymondIt was a masterful job of introducing someone else's clients to his own listing. I'm not certain if my buyers are the right ones for his property, but I know they got a crystal clear look at the land and explanation of the pros and cons of the infrastructure. I look forward to working with David Mark-Raymond on this or any other listing he brings to the market. He's a professional real estate agent our industry can be proud of.

I have known David for about 15 years now and you described him very well and seem to have captured the essence of David Mark-Raymond. A former kindergarten teacher who brought his classromm skills to the real estate field in the best way.

Hans - I appreciate your explanation of where David got his patience. It's hard to beat kindergarten for learning to wait for your audience.
