How Do You Choose The Best Agent to Represent You in Nashville? Video

Hey, friends. It’s Corey with Nashville Homes, ETC, and today we’re talking about how do you choose which agent to represent you when you’re selling or buying a house. I’m going to answer this from a non-biased perspective. So, How Do You Choose The Best Agent to Represent You in Nashville?

I’m going to pretend that I’m advising one of my brothers or sisters who lives out of state how to choose an agent to represent them. What’s the first thing I’m looking for? I’m looking for somebody who’s experienced. I’m going to assume that you’ve already gotten past the point where you’re not going to let your Aunt Betsy represent you who’s only sold two houses in four years. I’m hoping you’re past that and you’ve found somebody who is experienced, who’s sold millions, probably tens of millions of dollars worth of properties, who’s seen low dollar properties, who’s seen high dollar properties, who’s gone over a few speed bumps, who’s seen some crazy inspection reports, who’s dealt with some very picky buyers, who’s had to deal with some difficult mortgage brokers or lenders. That’s an experienced agent. That’s number one.

What’s number two? Somebody who’s honest. You know the feeling you get when you meet somebody and you just don’t quite trust them, or somebody who may be trying to pull a fast one or you catch them in a white lie. That’s not somebody who you want to work with as an agent. I don’t care if they were referred to you or recommended to you. If you don’t trust them, what’s the point of even having an agent? Why not just go buy a house yourself?

The third thing that I would be looking for is somebody who’s committed to you, to tell you the truth, somebody who’s going to be honest to you, advise you, be like an advocate for you, or even almost like an attorney. Not somebody’s who going to sell you a house. An agent should not be a salesperson trying to help you decide to pick the first or second house that you look at. They want to help you find what you’re truly looking for. They should be listening to what you tell them that you want. They should be an advocate to help protect you through the process so that you are happy with your house and that you will hopefully refer more people to them in the long run.

That’s what I would tell my brother or my sister who’s looking for an agent out of town. That’s what you should be looking for in an agent. That’s it, guys. See you.

 

How Do You Choose The Best Agent to Represent You in Nashville? Nashville Homes ETC is a local, family owned company located in Franklin, TN. Family is the foundation of every home so we put our family in our name: “ETC” stands for Everett, Tara, Corey. We have over 20 years of experience in the real estate world: from public relations for a large real estate firm, to mortgage broker, title company, construction and property renovation, real estate investment, and property rental – Nashville Homes ETC has truly seen and done it all. In a market as hot as Nashville, how do you choose the right real estate agent to sell your house or help you find the perfect house? What should you look for in an agent? The number one answer we hear from our clients is Trust. Trust that you’ll be guided to make good decisions — trust that you’re getting the whole story — trust that your agent will do what they said they will do. How do you know you can trust your agent? Their reputation and their track record. There are plenty of agents who “decided to do real estate because the market is hot” and then there are those who are real estate agents for life, committed to giving their clients a top tier experience in the largest purchase or sale of their lives. Buying Houses Nashville is committed to giving you a true and honest experience. WE WILL ALWAYS TELL YOU THE TRUTH, EVEN WHEN IT’S NOT GOOD NEWS. In addition to giving sellers and buyers a smooth transition from one house to another, Nashville Homes ETC has personally bought and sold more 50 properties of our own. What does that mean for you? It means we’ve seen a lot of different scenarios & made a lot of mistakes over the years; mistakes that we’ve learned from so you can avoid them. For instance, do you know the precise numbers of price per square foot in your neighborhood & how to compare & price the number of bathrooms, upgrades? How to make sure you don’t have issues with the appraisal once you receive an offer? Do you know how to be preemptive with the buyer’s inspection& realistic on what needs to be repaired? There are thousands of dollars and time on the line & the answers to these questions are the value we provide…like helping you maneuver around all the potholes on Nashville roads with busting an axle or running off the road. It’s kind of like doing a workout; no one wants to do it at first but once you’re done, you’re so glad you did it. Since we’re talking about comparisons, choosing the wrong agent (like a discount agent) is like eating a huge piece of cake and 3 scoops of ice cream; it tastes great at first but you always regret it after you’re done!
