People often get interviews for jobs based on specific criteria. Then, the key to whether or not they actually get hired comes down to “fit.” Hiring a real estate agent is no different. Homebuyers and sellers should consider a range of qualifications when selecting a realtor – and ultimately decide what matters most: Experience? Referrals? Results? Fit?
As a recent Baltimore Sun article illuminates (“Choosing the Right Agent for You,” May 19, 2013), there are many key factors to consider: rapport, referrals, references, experience, sales volume, sales statistics, technology, photography, and listening skills.
Members of The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group are happy to share our experience with prospective clients. Referrals and references are the cornerstone of our business. Our website, www.leeanngroup.com, offers many of our much-appreciated client testimonials. Each member of our team has been recognized for assisting customers, and we are grateful that buyers and sellers have taken the time to express their appreciation!
Sales volume, the number of properties sold (as buyer agent or seller agent) is an important factor for many people. The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group leads Sussex County Realtors again for 2012 (for the 10th year) in sales volume and ranks 8th out of over 47,000 Prudential Real Estate agents nationwide. It’s true that we are busy! This pace actually enables us to serve the needs of more clients: We often put buyers and sellers together quickly, based on a strong local network and real-time real estate knowledge. Additionally, we have a strong working knowledge of most of the properties on the market and their current market value.
All members of The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group sales team - Lee Ann, Carrie Gentile, Chris Holt, Trish Irwin, Amy Kellenberger, Garrett King, Erin Marsh, Mark Robinson, and Dawn Singley – work together to make sure buyers and sellers receive quick answers and superior service. Our office is open seven days a week.
Each of us also recognizes that homebuyers and sellers here at the Delaware beaches have many choices when selecting a real estate agent. Buying or selling a home is a huge investment; so, just like hiring for any position, it sometimes comes down to “fit” – what matters most and who can make you feel comfortable with your purchase.
