Selling your house? Here’s What to Expect – Listing Agreement
Our approach with any relationship begins with education. We will never ask anyone to sign a form they do not understand AND feel comfortable with. To that end, we “chalk talk” example agreements like this one into pdf files so our prospective clients can review them in advance and ask questions. Once we are all on the same page, its time to get started with our Seller Success System so we can position your house to WIN!
In Georgia, real estate agents work as designated representatives for real estate brokers. That simply means that technically the Listing Agreement is between you as a Seller and the Broker of Record in our office. Practically speaking, you will be working with us though.
For our team, there is an initial period when both parties are interviewing each other. Usually one of three outcomes is the result:
- You decide that you want us to manage the sale of your house and we agree to do it,
- You decide that we are not a good fit, or
- We decide that we are not a good fit.
We are typically able to quickly determine if it is going to make sense to work together. We are tenacious and competitive. We use technology to keep our home selling process smooth and efficient. We negotiate with information, energy, poise and leverage – not attitude and bullying. We are not for everyone. In the end though the Listing Agent relationship is based in a large part on trust and that goes both ways. All we want is a good fit for everyone. Our hope is always that we can help someone with the sale of their house. But, we understand that sometimes goals and philosophies may not align.
Our goal is to be successful enough that we can appreciate every client without needing any one client so much that it colors our judgement.
