HONESTY, CREATIVITY, INTEGRITY, AND FULL DISCLOSURE- THAT'S MY BUSINESS
Is There A Better Real Estate Business Model Than That?
I really am different. I work in a family brokerage, not a big outfit where morning meetings provide agents with sales pitches and positive stories to tell about the market. As a buyer's agent my job is to tell it like it REALLY is, not to paint a rosy picture so that you can line my pocket. My job is to get you the best information I can to enable you to make an informed decision, and unlike many other Bend real estate agents I will tell you the negatives about a home and not just the positives. I have been a Bend Real Estate Agent since 2007, a pure Bend Buyers Agent since early 2009, and our family brokerage has been in Bend real estate since 1992. I am an Accredited Bend Buyer's Agent with energy, extensive sales experience, and a Mensa IQ. I am always honest, always forthcoming, and occasionally lose a sale because I tell my clients when a deal is bad. If I do business with you this way, you will not only tell your friends, but you will consider me one of them. And they will tell theirs. If that sounds like a Bend Real Estate Agent you can do business with, contact me and let me prove my worth to you.
- Is an ABR (Accredited Buyer's Representative)
- Is a BUYER'S AGENT / BUYER'S BROKER ONLY, and NOT chasing sellers and listings instead of focusing on the home buyer's needs.
- Requires no contract until an offer is made! I allow you to go to another Bend real estate agent if you are not happy, while some make you sign up front.
- Knows Bend Real Estate well, knows where the problem areas are, and will actually TELL you about them and risk losing a sale
- Understands that the Bend Real Estate market doesn’t always go up and doesn’t promise you’ll make a bundle
- Is not afraid to tell you what you may NOT want to hear about Bend Homes, OR the Bend Real Estate Market in general
- Is less concerned with a quick Bend Real Estate sale than with long term client relationships
- Practices Absolute Honesty If you are my client I owe you a fiduciary duty to bare all, good and bad, and as you hold the keys to the success of my business, I will. I will never tell you what you WANT to hear, but I will always tell you what you NEED to hear, what you SHOULD hear, and what I would want you to tell me if our roles were reversed.
- Keeps YOU in the Loop AND LISTENS!- Communication is key, and you can call me whenever it works for you, weekends too.
I TREAT YOU WELL SO THAT YOU WILL TREAT ME WELL. Is there a simpler or better Real Estate business model than that?
