Meghan's job of answering His call has helped her develop her character traits.
Meghan begins every real estate interaction by asking lots of questions to understand the situation...and then she really listens to the answers. When she learns from one of her seller's how difficult it is for her to come to the house she has already vacated, Meghan replaces the mailbox that she finds knocked to the ground, saving the owner the time and trouble.
Meghan makes follow up phone calls to her clients regularly to see how things are going with their new house and check for satisfaction.A buyer decides to complete the purchase of a home, even though some electrical issues came up in the inspection. Meghan works with the buyer to write up a list of items to correct, contacts electricians to get bids and meets the contractors at the house so the buyer does not have to miss work.
Meghan has knowledge of the real estate market. She keeps up to date on the trends in the housing market, what's going on in the city, features buyers are seeking and how to best market her seller's houses. Sellers often want flyer boxes at their property because they believe it will help them get an offer. Meghan finds that one of the most effective ways to market a property is to drive potential buyers to a website. Meghan buys a domain name for the property and advertises it with a sign at the property.
Meghan resolves problems. It is 2 weeks to Christmas and the closing for her sellers. They are already in their new home and are anxiously awaiting the funds from their sale. The buyer's lender falls through. Meghan calls her lender and they work together to get the buyer funded and meet the closing date.
Meghan negotiates to get what her client wants. Meghan's buyer is just back in town and looking for a job. She really needs to get herself and her baby settled. The buyer can afford just so much. She finds a home she really likes, but it is more than she can spend. There are some others close by that are very similar and priced less. Knowing there is a fair amount of inventory available, Meghan gets aggressive on the pricing. They bid and the seller counters at more than the buyer can afford. Meghan tells the seller's agent they will just have to make an offer on the property down the street. In a matter of minutes the agent calls back to accept the buyer's offer. The buyer is delighted with her new home.
Meghan delivers on her promises. Meghan develops a unique marketing plan for each home she helps to sell. She executes by using each item on the list in the most effective way. She may buy the list of all the residents in a town home community near by and mail to those residents, encouraging them to "move up". In the case of an old farm house surrounded by new home communities, Meghan took flyers to all the antique stores in town to promote the property.
Meghan is honest. Meghan will not promise you that she can sell your home in a specific time period. She will tell you that it is her job to help you market the property in every effective way possible.
Meghan demonstrates integrity. Many agents are excited when they are working for the seller and a buyer comes forward that is not represented by an agent. That usually means more money for the selling agent. Meghan prefers to strongly encourage buyers to choose an agent to represent them so they are advised throughout the transaction and issues are minimized for the seller.
Meghan is professional. There are times in negations when other agents get angry and offensive. Meghan does not allow herself to get offended. She stays focused on getting her clients what they want and completing the sale.
Meghan cares for others. Meghan believes each buyer should be given all the time they need to make a good home purchase decision, regardless of the price of house being purchased. In a couple of cases, Meghan devoted several weekends showing multiple homes to first time home buyers who purchased homes for under $100,000.
