Selling Lake of the Ozarks Area Real Estate
Exposure is Key
The internet has opened up so many opportunities for todays Realtors! If harnessed correctly, a Realtors online presence can be the biggest tool in their bag. National statistics suggest that over 90% of homebuyers begin their real estate search on the web. That number is likely even higher at Lake of the Ozarks when over 80% of our buyers and sellers are from out of town. If you are reading this today, you can see how I recognize the importance of marketing online. The internet reaches across states and countries, languages and cultures, making communications from seller to buyer much easier than without it.
Although Ozark Realty is one of the oldest real estate Brokerages at Lake of the Ozarks, it is also a brokerage that has embraced technology as fast as technology evolves. It is this outside the box thinking that has made me successful in real estate and keeps me on top.
Negotiating a Real Estate Transaction
It's my favorite part of the real estate deal. Of course I love meeting new buyers and sellers and assisting them with making their transaction successful, it is however negotiating that gets me excited. I would say I was born with the skill but have worked 27 years at perfecting it, attending many sales seminars and even watching some of the nations best communicators speak. My parents owned and operated their own very successful real estate brokerage in Central Missouri for 35 years before retiring and selling to a BANK. From my training and upbringing, I have a keen eye for putting my clients leverage to work for them. On nearly a daily basis I observe Buyers agents unwittingly give away information to me when presenting offers on my listings. When representing a buyer, I watch Sellers agents make the same mistake offering me information that gives my clients an advantage. After over 1000 successful transactions at Lake of the Ozarks, my clients will tell you my services don't cost, they pay!
