It's more than a presentation
and more than hanging a sign
Selling Tennessee real estate is far more than just convincing someone that I am the best agent for the job. Some agents have dynamic and engaging listing presentations, while some do not use them at all, along with everything in between.
According to numerous sources, such as Forbes and Realty Times, the three biggest complaints about realtors are:
They go MIA once the ink is dry on the listing.
They lie or exaggerate.
They are lazy.
Tennessee Luxe is here to put a stop to these areas that the real estate industry typically struggles with.
As a Tennessee realtor, there are six fundamentals that I will not compromise on when providing my clients with an outstanding sale and acquisition service:
1)I Will Always Put Client’s Interests Ahead of My Own
In short, I am a fiduciary: a person or organization that acts on behalf of another person, putting their clients' interests ahead of their own, with a duty to preserve good faith and trust. Being a fiduciary thus requires being legally and ethically bound to act in the other's best interests.
I am proud to be able to provide prospective clients with testimonials from clients I have worked with in the past. As many of my clients will say, I often talk clients out of selling or buying because I feel they may not be seeing things. Sometimes, stepping back from the emotion is necessary to make the best decision in your purchase or sale. I pride myself on being able to see real estate investment decisions objectively in order to best serve the needs of my clients.
While ultimately a real estate purchase decision lies with the client, I provide advice about the potential pitfalls of buying a property that they may have missed or overlooked themselves. The integrity and responsibility that I show day in, day out, far outweigh the desire for a quick sale or commission payment.
2)I Use My Wealth of Experience in the Industry
Who would you rather choose to operate on you: a first-year intern, or a doctor with many years of experience? It sounds silly, but the point transfers to the real estate industry. An inexperienced agent can result in costly mistakes for you.
Honesty and integrity are key features of a great Tennessee realtor, however, without years of experience behind them, how can they quickly and accurately spot the red flags to advise you and protect you from making mistakes?
In this industry, there is always something new to learn with every transaction. If an agent tells you that they know it all, don’t believe it!
3)I Act with Honesty and Integrity, Always
I know this is every agent's first claim. So how can you distinguish between genuine, experienced agents, and those just looking to make quick cash?
I truly believe that an agent that sells a property that they know is unsuitable for the client, having failed to express their concerns, is the worst outcome for a real estate transaction. This agent should, in my opinion, no longer be in the business of serving clients. They have not acted in the best interests of the client.
For me, there is no greater reward than knowing that my clients have made a great decision in what is a very significant purchase in their lives. The vast majority of my clients become long-term friends of mine because I take the time to get to know them, their families, and their requirements.
4)I Follow Through on Promises
In my day-to-day work, I come across many agents who don’t do what they say they will do. To me, this is a huge mistake and one that requires no explanation.
There are no ‘ifs’ or ‘buts’; at Tennessee Luxe, we achieve what we set out to do.
5)I Use My Advanced Education and Training
I have invested a significant amount of time and effort over the years in improving my real estate investment education and earning advanced designations. A great realtor shouldn’t just know the basics but should be continually learning and improving, especially with continuing updates to laws and regulations surrounding the real estate industry.
6)Above All Else, I am a Professional
Although it may seem like a good idea, it is rarely beneficial to work with close friends, family, or neighbors when purchasing or selling Tennessee real estate. Ultimately, working with a neutral professional can enable you to view the transaction from a less emotional standpoint, resulting in a more financially sensible decision, rather than one based on a good first impression.
Selling Tennessee homes requires more than creating a listing and hanging a sign; it requires dedication, professionalism, and an extensive network of buyers and colleagues. A good realtor serves the client with the highest degree of professionalism, experience, integrity, and knowledge.
If you want to work with an experienced and reputable Tennessee realtor, then look no further.
