When I first got my real estate license over a decade ago, my oldest and dearest friend said —
Before it comes up, I want you to know that I’m not going to hire you to be my real estate agent. I know about thirty agents, including my own mother, and if I picked any one of them, it would make the other twenty-nine mad, so I’m not hiring any of you. I’ll hire someone nobody’s heard of and who isn’t one of the crowd. That way, I can push them as hard as I need to and get as mad at them as I feel and even fire them if I want, and I won’t be risking a relationship or ruining Thanksgiving.”
No kidding – he really did say that.
Today, I am living in Wilmington, but I was raised in New Orleans & Birmingham and lived the last thirty years in New York City, Houston, Galveston, and Atlanta. I was the Operating Principal/Managing Broker of Keller Williams Galveston — the largest and most productive real estate company in the world — and have been a mega agent, coach, and certified trainer. I’ve got solid professional relationships across the country — agents of every shape and size with myriad specialties — and I want to leverage all that to benefit my friends, family, neighbors, and clients. (That’s you.)
So here’s what I’m going to do: When you are ready to buy or sell anywhere in North America, call me. I will visit with you about your motivations and dreams and requirements, then I will recommend one or more agents who I believe will do the best job for your specific circumstance. It may be me, and it may not be. We’ll decide that together. And while it won’t cost you a thing, it will very likely save you a bundle on the other end, in cash and drama.
I hope you’ll remember my idea when you’re thinking of buying or selling. Email me at email@example.com, call me directly on my cell phone at 910-541-4145, or just go ahead and put yourself on my calendar. We’ll visit confidentially, talk about the market and your situation, then decide what or who is best for you.
