Are you Selling or Buying a Home? If you are new to the Property Market, then chances are that you don’t know much about Property Agents, and what differentiates a Good Property Agent from a Great Property Agent. Chas Everitt Cape Agulhas is part of the Leading International Property Group Chas Everitt International, and we pride ourselves in offering exceptional service. Our Property Agents are not your average agents and our clients will testify to that.
Let’s look at eight Characteristics that these Superheroes in Property Sales possess:
1. Communication Skills
Superhero Property Sales Agents have one thing in common, they are excellent communicators. They can communicate to people from all walks of life. They listen more than they talk, and therefore has a much better understanding of what a client may need. A great agent should be asking all the questions, not the other way around. Great Estate Agents keep their Property buyers and sellers in the loop. The Property market is time-sensitive, and an agent that keeps you updated about your current buying or selling situation will save you money and time.
2. Client Centred
Property Agents that are Client Centred are genuinely passionate about getting Property sellers the best deal and finding Property buyers their perfect home. Always offering that little bit extra and going the extra mile for their clients. Because they care about their clients, they always offer quick and timely responses. Superhero Property Agents act for the seller, not the buyer, and therefore always act with your best interest at heart, all the time. Because property buyers or sellers don’t always know enough about the industry, the Superhero Property Agent will give the best advice, and never expose them to unnecessary risk. It is important for an agent to follow the ethical codes of the Property Industry and it is, therefore, safer for the property seller to get an exclusive mandate with an Estate Agent. This makes the agent fully responsible for the marketing of the property, and in full service of the seller.
3. Knowledge of the Area
The best Estate Agents have great local knowledge, making them a local Property expert. This means we can advise Property sellers how to best market their property, as well as highlight the wonderful things that our area has to offer to potential Property buyers. Our Property Agents live in the areas of Struisbaai, L’Agulhas, Bredasdorp and Napier, which means their knowledge is unparalleled. Local knowledge plays a huge part in the success of any Property sale.
4. The Art of Negotiation
The qualities of a Superhero Property Agent include having the art of negotiation and the tenacity to follow through. An agent that will leave no stone unturned in the search for the right buyer, and is prepared to go the extra mile, even if that means conducting a viewing at short notice for you on a Sunday evening. What makes a great Property Agent is someone that is not afraid to speak up. Acting on behalf of the seller as if it was their own home, an accomplished negotiator who always fights in your corner and gets the results.
5. Honesty & Integrity
Superhero Estate Agents do not shy away from the truth and are willing to tell you things that you don’t necessarily would like to hear. If the seller is unrealistic about the value of their home or has presented it poorly, a great Property Agent must be prepared to tell them. Sometimes it is a delicate home truth that is all that is needed to seal the deal. The Property Professional will always work in the interest of sellers and buyers and will never do anything unethical.
6. Well Organised
Superhero Estate Agents, like Chas Everitt Cape Agulhas, operate under the banner of Chas Everitt International, a larger well-established agency with a whole team of professionals. This offers many advantages, like larger marketing and advertising budgets, more powerful website offerings, group buyer referral programmes, and much wider overall marketing exposure for your Property. We offer the added advantage of a well-oiled office infrastructure and organisational know-how and administration.
7. Hard-working & Tenacious
Great Property Agents are hardworking, and always proactive. The Superhero Agent never rests until they have found the perfect buyer for your Property. Calling potential buyers, communicating with existing customers and constantly chasing new leads. Offering 110% service, 110% of the time!
8. Strong Sales History
At Chas Everitt Cape Agulhas, our Superhero Property Agents are not afraid to give you their last clients as references. Testimonies from both sellers and buyers are important. Great Property Agents also don’t mind answering questions like - How many of the agent’s listings failed to sell? How long were the properties they sold on the market? What is the agent’s marketing and after-sales plan? How often do they provide feedback on marketing efforts? Whilst sales volume is important – make sure the quality component is present as well.
