Woodbury’s best real estate agent or Woodbury MN‘s best Realtor®? Personally, I would say who is Woodbury MN’s best Realtor® and my response would be ‘best’ really depends on how each home buyer and home seller defines best? As the Durham Executive Group, Becky’s and my philosophy is we are one of Woodbury’s very best Realtors® or if preference one of Woodbury MN’s best real estate agents.
There are sound justifications on why it is our philosophy we not only one of the best Realtors® in Woodbury, MN and Eastern MN but we also feel strongly we should be considered as one of the best Realtors® in Woodbury, Stillwater MN, Lake Elmo, and Eastern Twin Cities/MN. Year in and year out Becky and I see the biggest failure on the part of home buyers and sellers is they do not properly perform due diligence and validate the qualifications of the Realtor® they ultimately decide to represent them in a transaction.
Mistakes we repeatedly see home buyers and home sellers of all ages make regardless if they are a first-time home buyer/seller, or an experienced home buyer/seller simply comes down to two reasons.
First, they do not take the proper time researching a Realtor® before making a decision. Secondly, they really do not fully understand what they should be using as qualifying factors in determining who is the best Woodbury MN Realtor®. The following are common mistakes made by the consumers:
- Hire an agent based on a recommendation of someone they know even though they haven’t done due diligence and interviewed and researched other Realtors(R).
- Hire a Realtor® because they are somehow involved with an organization they belong to which possibly might be a church, an athletic organization, or a professional organization such as a networking group.
- Saw the agents sign across the street and the home sold quickly.
- Have seen quite a few signs of a particular Realtors® around town so they must be top agents.
- The real estate agent is attractive or has a physical attribute that is appealing.
- Realtor® mails/emails information to the neighborhood from time to time such as cooking recipes, etc.
The following are the attributes that make Becky and myself feel uniquely qualified to be the best or one of the best Woodbury MN Realtors® or if you prefer the best Woodbury, MN real estate agents.
- We are a married husband and wife real estate team that work together with every real estate client. Basically, when a client hires us they are receiving the ‘power of 2 Realtors®’ for the price of one Realtor®.
- At the Durham Executive Group we consider ourselves ‘boutique’ Realtors® because we work exclusively with our clients from the very beginning throughout the transaction all the way past the sale to the closing. We do not have multiple real estate agents (including buyer agents) on our team falsely giving the general public the impression that one particular agent is responsible for so many signs and sales.
- We do not use transaction coordinators to process all the legal documents in a transaction. Becky and I handle every aspect of a transaction ourselves unlike other real estate teams who hire $15/hour un-licensed individuals to handle your transaction when there is so much riding on negotiations along with legal implications.
- These real estate teams have a trained Realtor® who specializes in giving a professional listing presentation and upon securing your listing contract you never see or hear from them again as you are working with front desk personnel, a transaction coordinator, and/or often times with Realtors® who often times are not experienced. With Becky and myself you will only work directly with us every step of the way. No bait and switch!
- When interviewing do you even ask Realtors® for a resume to see what their past work and school history shows? Do the Realtors® you are interviewing even have a degree of some sort let alone a college degree? Have the Realtors® ever had a professional job at any time throughout their career? Wouldn’t you interview and research your financial planner or your doctor/surgeon? With the important financial aspect of buying or selling a home having an educated and highly qualified party representing you is imperative.
