If you want to talk strategy, you’re speaking my language
Starting in the Portland real estate industry in the 90’s, I’ve seen a lot of changes over the years. As things change, we need to adapt. In fact, one of our most important jobs as Realtors is to notice how the world is changing and decide what to do about it. Then, keep our clients informed.
Change is a constant in the real estate market and it seems to be happening more quickly all the time. As the market changes so too do the motivations of buyers and sellers. But do the motivations of all buyers and sellers change in the same way? Of course not. To learn how someone’s hopes, fears, and dreams speak into their motivations, listening is required. You need to listen and notice the subtleties to begin to understand them.
Up until the summer of 2012 I was a full time real estate broker. That is, I was full time until 2008, and from 2008 to 2012 the market became a little more challenging. Really, it was challenging to the point where “full time” doesn’t even begin to describe the all-in commitment required to succeed as a real estate professional during those years.
In the summer of 2012 I was ready for a new challenge, that was to take a leadership position with a local real estate company. Working with agents in that capacity grew my knowledge exponentially. I realized that as an agent I knew what I knew, but working with a lot of agents was transformative. Not only was I supervising their transactions but I would work most closely with them on their most challenging deals. It’s in those challenging deals where the learning occurs, you ask how can it be fixed and how could it have been prevented.
Early this year it became time to reconvene the sales side of the business. Perhaps you’re a potential seller and would like to discuss the best ways to optimize buyer excitement for your home in a way that sparks emotional appeal. Perhaps you’re an aspiring homeowner who would like to discuss the best path forward to achieving your dream of your very own place.
Whatever your goals might be, let’s have a conversation. My commitment is to only take a limited number of clients so I can be at my best for each one of them. Reaching out by phone, text, or email is the best way to get started.
I look forward to speaking with you!
