Why Sellers Need Sheryl . . .
When buyers’ agents see my name as the Listing Agent at the bottom of the MLS screen or printout, they “break their necks” to do business with me — because:
I answer my phone.
I follow up.
I arrive on time.
I show up early for showings and turn on the lights and make sure the home is presentable — (how you show a home and how you live in a home are two different matters).
I upload documents to the MLS as attachments — such as:
- Owners’ Disclosure
- HOA/COA Addenda to Contract (A/B)
- Condo (Governance Forms)
- Lead-Based Paint Addendum (Pre-1978)
- Elevation Certificate
- Floor Plan or Blueprints
- (If folio starts with 30, Unincorporated Dade County Flood Rider) — as well as I upload HOA documents and/or Condo documents to dropbox and add a link to the attachments in MLS — so the potential Buyer can review and/or send to his/her attorney for review – All of the above documents (if applicable) are uploaded to MLS to make it easier for the Buyers’ Agent to assemble the offer package.
I want the Seller to achieve the best opportunities to receive the highest offers for consideration.
I present all offers fairly.
I present all offers timely.
I allow the buyer’s agent to present in person should (s)he feel the need to do so.
I attend the showings (if necessary and if the residence is not on lockbox).
I do not “solicit” the Buyers, and I respect the Buyers and the Buyers’ agents.
I market the home according to the customized plan I have provided to you.
I request a copy of the Escrow Deposit Verification from the Buyers’ Agent/Escrow Agent to make
sure that the “deposit monies” (First, Second, Third …) by the Buyers have actually CLEARED the bank.
I attend the inspections.
I attend the walk-through.
I coordinate all transaction activities through/with the attorneys (if same have been hired).
I make sure the Seller does not have to clean the home once the Seller removes his possessions; I hire a
cleaning company and coordinate same with Seller and new Buyer.
I make sure all paperwork is turned in timely and all deadlines are met.
I communicate in the manner in which the Sellers desire.
I attend the Closing and attend to after-Closing needs of my clients.
I stay in touch with my clients should any needs arise regarding my services to them in the future.
