Marilyn SullivanExcerpt from: "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Success as a Real Estate Agent"
Top Dogs (the most successful agents) stage their listings. They see every single listing as an opportunity to top the market. They analyze the properties they list and have them professionally staged before they are presented to their market. These Top Dogs pay for their own staging, making it a part of their listing package. They see it as a cost of doing business and a powerful marketing advantage.
Sell Faster and For More Money!
It always makes sense to sell a home quickly and for the most money possible! Finding that balance and having a reputation for being the agent who helps sellers "cash in" on their homes is critical to long term success as an agent.
When 9 out of every 10 buyers view the home online first, it's essential that the photos are of professionally staged rooms!
Partner with an HSR Certified Professional and Benefit...
It's not hard to enhance your listing package by bringing in a professional stager to do occupied home consultations and reports. My focus is on making you look great...
- I Listen! I focus first on how I can benefit your business and help you get more listings by making you look fantastic. I listen to your client! I want to get the job done but I want them to feel good about what we did! Staging is a bit invasive, I am sensitive to that and treat your client with care and understanding.
- Partner Pricing! I have volume, discount pricing for my agents who are regular clients.
- Accredited and Certified! Certification and credibility matter to your sellers, so they know when I make a recommendation...it's in their best interest.
- Beautiful Reports! If your client prefers a written action plan over a hands-on staging day, I can do that. They or you may decide to invest in both, but be assured I will help you look professional by providing a professional product.
- Educational Hand-outs! Since I know that not all sellers "get it", I offer easy to understand statistics and materials you can use to educate them on the staging process.
