Avoid working with agents who lock you into lengthy “Exclusive Agreements” you can’t get out of!
See, these Agreements usually contain penalties and protection which safeguard the agent’s interests, but not necessarily yours.
Before signing any agreement listing your home for sale… you really need to ask yourself the following 2 questions:
“How confident is this agent in the service she or he will be providing me?” And…
“What happens if I’m not happy with the job this agent is doing?”
Well, the truth is… 99% of the time, if you’re not happy with the job your agent is doing (Or not doing!), you’re pretty much stuck in this situation. Because of these Exclusive Agreements, you’ll have to be patient and just “wait it out,” until your agreement expires – which is usually 6 months, at a minimum.
Having been on your side of the table in the past, I don’t think that’s fair. To me, if an agent believes in their ability to deliver quality service, then they should have absolutely no problem allowing you to cancel and walk away from your “Exclusive” agreement, penalty-free.
Which is why, if you’re not 100% satisfied with the service I’m providing, you can do exactly this. You can walk away, without any hassles or any penalties.
This gives you peace of mind, and…
This also completely eliminates any sense of risk and
uncertainty related to working with me, as your realtor
If I don’t deliver, you owe me nothing – including the obligation to continue working with me.
In the unlikely event you’re unhappy or dissatisfied with my performance, prior to the end of our agreement… just let me know and we’ll tear up our “exclusive” agreement, simple as that.
Now most realtors would think I’m crazy for offering you such a bold and daring guarantee. But I have no problem doing this, simply because it’s the right thing to do.
I like what I do, and I believe strongly, you should work with people you enjoy working with. Not because you signed an agreement that forces you to continue working with them.
If you’re unhappy with my performance, send me on my merry way – no harm, no foul, and zero financial penalties or hassles for you.
Between this, and my 7-Point Guarantee, these are 2 Guarantees you won’t find any other realtor willing to make.
However, I have no problem making them because if you’re like most people, you’ll appreciate the service, experience, and work ethic I bring to the table. You won’t need this guarantee. But I’m happy to offer it to you, just so you feel protected.
This Seller’s No-Risk Guarantee, and my 7-Point Guarantee makes me uniquely different, in a world where one realtor is basically no different from another. It’s one of the reasons why new clients are very open to working with me in the first place… but the quality of my service is why they wind up staying with me and referring their friends.
