Local personalization combines two growing trends that clients love and leads to more repeat and referral clients which should make up the vast majority of any relationship based business. Choosing an Edmonton owned and operated business with a top tier track record can reap many rewards beyond the current transaction. When it comes to real estate look for a locally owned one right up to the top echelons this includes the agent, brokerage and company headquarters. A strong local culture in a business increases use of other local businesses as well for example signage, promotion, accounting, photography, 3D tours, measurements, charities and fuel to name a few. The benefits of supporting local include reduced carbon footprint, job creation, business opportunities & more support for our community.
Personalization is the other area clients are looking for. Real estate is highly personalized right from your specific needs and wants to the unique aspects of the homes themselves. Information is not lacking here in fact go to kevingrenier.realtor you can get a home price online instantly and find tons of how to info on both buying and selling as well as homes for sale including new homes, there is no lack of information. Much of this information however is generalized and not specific to your home or the one you want to buy. The demand here is to help make sense of it all, evaluation of the important information and direction. A REALTOR® who has successfully navigated clients past the pitfalls, false claims, mis-information and liabilities that abound in this information age can be an important part of your real estate journey. Personalizing the service including offering a whole range of services is key. From seller services like “commission-less” offerings where a flat fee is paid up front whether you sell or not to performance fee schedules where you don’t pay until you get the result you want are the stock-in-trade now. Whether you are buying, selling or both look for a licensed REALTOR® who supports the local community, has a large percentage of their clients coming from repeat and referrals, offers all types of service models and has a successful track record, meet with them and decide if it is a good fit. I wish you all the best in your real estate journey.
