I’ve learned three things during my career as a real estate agent in the Twin Cities area.

In my 20+ years of working in the real estate industry, I’ve learned three things: 

 

3. No two real estate transactions are the same. While there are many similarities, no two situations are identical. The real estate business is as much art as it is science, meaning you can use data to price a house, but it also takes listening skills, patience, creativity, experience, and good communication to accommodate a unique, sensitive situation. 

 

2. Real estate is always changing. Many people are in denial about this. Let’s face it—change is hard. The only thing that will never change, however, is change itself, and this pertains to the real estate industry overall. Whether it’s marketing, negotiation skills, MLS rules and regulations, social media laws and platforms, etc., it’s all changing so fast that many people don’t even know about the latest changes. I’ve learned that you have to be hungry and tenacious to continue learning and stay on top of these changes, because they’re a huge part of our business. 

 

It’s all about offering expert advice, being compassionate, and acting as the voice of reason when tensions run high.

 

1. Having a genuine desire to help people is my goal. It’s not about the number of transactions per year, or the number of homes I’ve sold in my career; it’s about helping people. I’ve seen people at their best—full of joy and excitement—and I’ve seen people at their worst due to difficult circumstances. Buying and/or selling a home can be a difficult situation, and it’s certainly one of the most significant investments a person can make in their lifetime.

 

What I can offer my clients? Depending on your goals, I can get you the most money for your home in the least amount of time, or secure a guaranteed offer quickly. It’s all about offering expert advice, being compassionate, and acting as the voice of reason when tensions run high. That’s my goal, and that’s my idea of excellent customer satisfaction. 

 

As always, if you have any real estate questions or you’re thinking of buying or selling a home soon, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d love to help you.
