Hiring a Real Estate Agent?
Referrals Are Key
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?
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!
We are pleased to share just one of our recent testimonials:
I wanted to tell you what a pleasure it was working with you. We really loved your approach. Being in D.C., we are used to realtors that want you to sign an agent agreement before they will show you anything and then put and lot of pressure on you to try and make decisions quickly. We never felt that from you, and it made the whole experience much more enjoyable. You were always incredibly responsive – nights, weekends, whenever, but we never felt like we were at all rushed. You gave us a lot of valuable input and guidance, and then listened to what it is we were looking for. I’m sure part of this is just a difference in the size of the markets, but we both much prefer your approach. We are very excited about the prospect of our new home, and we feel like we got the right deal for us. Thank you again. You were the perfect realtor for us.

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 2013 in sales volume and ranks 7th out of over 47,000 Prudential/Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices 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, Chris Holt, Carrie Gentile, Trish Irwin, Garrett King, Dane Baich, Erin Lee, Mark Robinson, Dawn Singley, Cyndi Myers, Billie Wilkinson, Taylor Wilkinson, Bob Green and Beth Heid – 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.
