Agressive Agents Pitbull vs Professional
Who would you as a seller like to deal with when selling your home ?
Who as a buyer would you like to work with when looking to find a home?
Who as a Cooperating Broker would you like to have a transaction with ?
An Agressive Agent (shall we call this agent a Pitbull)
Or a Professional Agent that gets the job done and looks out for your interests
Karen has written about her opinion on this subject ... Do you agree? I sure do !
I had a listing presentation this week. This was a good old fashioned equity seller....remember those? The ones who really cared about what the sales price turned out to be? I love those.
The seller has owned the house for over 15 years; that's a lifetime when it comes to real estate markets. Naturally he had a lot of questions about how to effectively sell his Mission Viejo home.
"How agressive are you in your representation?"
Not that unusual of a question. Buyers and sellers both want to know that their agent is going to represent them and their financial interests to the fullest extent.
But the term aggressive has started to bother me. In fact, although I used to use this term quite a bit, I no longer use it to describe myself. I am tough....and firm...but aggressive? Not sure! That's a negative word in my book. More and more I'm seeing aggressive agents trying to prove something to either themselves or their clients. And I'm finding that this is becoming an obstacle.
Rather than marching into situations with guns blazing, problem solving as a professtional is a much better option!
In my listing presentation, I answered this question by discussing the different types of situations we face in real estate today...and how I would handle them. There is no reason to assume a "them against us" posture, we are all trying to piece together a win-win proposition, if we are doing it right. There are reasonable requests and users out there....a professional can help a Mission Viejo Buyer or Seller determine which of these they are dealing with, and how to respond.
I'm not a Pitbull...I'm a professional real estate agent who will carefully watch your interests to get to the best possible outcome for you. Then the final decision is yours. That's what you should be looking for in a Mission Viejo Real Estate Agent, in my opinion. The Pitbull Agent is more likely to alienate the other party and cause them to dig in their heels....which normally results in getting less than you might have otherwise.
