Just a quick note to let you know how we might be able to help you or anyone you feel comfortable introducing to us.
This April, we had a call from new clients, Mel and Jacqueline, to invite me to have a look at their house, and give them my opinion on what it would take to market their property as well as what to do to prepare their home for sale.
As it turns out, they were introduced to our team by our clients, who were also their neighbours, who thought they should at least talk to us before making any moving decisions.
As I was viewing their house, we talked about what was important to them with making a move and what their priorities were. They had some concerns selling in the West Abbotsford area and the types of buyers that the home may attract.
I encouraged them that our experience marketing properties for the last 30 years in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission and Langley would help them “Make it Happen”, that our marketing campaign could sell their property and our team would make things as stress free as possible.
After reviewing the list of things “to do” and “not to do” to show case their home as well as 3 pricing options, Mel and Jacqueline decided that our team would be a good fit for them. A price was chosen, and we listed their property for sale and put our marketing campaign into high gear. Within a day, the sign was up, pictures were taken, and the listing was on our website.
Now the story gets really good. Within a week, we had 4 offers! Yes, some of them were LOW and a waste of time, yet because of the activity our marketing had created, we were able to negotiate a cash offer, a great price and perfect dates...SOLD!
So what did it take to “make it happen”? I found it takes an average of 100-150 calls, emails, texts, and faxes to take a property from the listing stage to being SOLD, but with the number of offers and the negotiation “style” of these realtors, we documented 243 calls, texts, emails & faxes.
The outcome...Mel and Jacqueline are soooo happy they chose our team and that they can now move on to the next chapter of their life.
Congratulations Mel and Jacqueline...you were a pleasure to work with!!!
Your friends in the business,
Larry & Marlene
