Val Vista Lakes Gilbert AZ home soldAs Real Estate Agents, we should understand that buying a home is a huge decision, especially first-time-home-buyers.

If rushed into making decisions, buyers may blame Realtor for pushing them into wrong decision.

I advise my buyers against making rushed decisions.

When they decide to make an offer, I ask if they're sure this is the right home. Then I'll help prepare the offer based on my knowledge of the property and current demand.

NUMBER OF SHOWINGS

Some agents show only 6-12 homes. Not me.

If my buyer is serious I'll show 50 homes if necessary

PAST EXPERIENCE

I'm a retired Pan Am Airline Captain, with an analytical personality. I know what I need and how to find it. If I'm looking for a home and an agent pushes me, that agent is history. I won't be pushed.

When relocating from AZ to CA I spent one year looking for a home, flying over twice a month.Val Vista Lakes Gilbert AZ

We planned to scale down to a $200,000 home and looked at about 60.

 

My agent was well rewarded for her patience.

We looked at one home in the gated Lakeside sub-community of Val Vista Lakes but it wasn't a match.

Then we saw a sign on a waterfront home. The agent knocked on the door and the owner invited us in. We fell in love with the home and bought it that night for $667,000.

The agent had anticipated a $6,000 commission. By us choosing a larger home on the waterfront, sheVal Vista Lakes Gilbert AZ commission received a $20,000 commission.

Was it worth her time for being patient? ----- Is Val Vista Lakes a lake community?

 

I am not a Salesperson. I'm a Real Estate Agent whose job is to assist buyers find the right home and patiently guide them through the buying process, whether it's in Val Vista Lakes, or other communities in Gilbert or Phoenix AZ

Pushing someone into something never works.  Taking the lead and tugging/advising/informing gently reaps much greater rewards.

Your feelings about being an agent are the same as mine. You can;t push someone to buy a home.

I have had many buyers tell me how they appreciate my non-pushiness, how they hated other agents who kept pushing them.

Hi Bill, boy, did you state that well! By giving your own personal example, you show buyers that you know what it's like to be in their shoes. I take heat from some agents for not being pushy, but I earn the thanks and gratitude of my clients. I know you do, too.

Donna, I think all buyers want someone to provide them information and guidance and then give them the space to make their own decision.

Lottie, it's the client that's important, not the agents being critical. If they like the way you operate they will send you business. I helped a client buy a home for his mother and he remarked later that he liked the way I pointed out things for him, but always stayed out of the way when he and his wife were debating the pro's and con's of a house.

Recently he sent his daugher to me to find a home, and then his son. Also he's going to do some investing with a self directed IRA. So it really pays to not be pushy.
