So......here is the condensed version with questions I'm asked fairly regularly.
Where are you from? I get asked this on a daily basis because I have an accent. Georgia is the reason I talk funny, but I've also lived in Florida and now Oregon is my home.
How long have you been selling Real Estate? Well, that's a fair question because you want to know if I know what I'm doing. I sold real estate in Florida and now I sell in Oregon. 2005 was when I became licensed in Oregon. So I have lots of experience.
How long have you been here? I moved to Oregon in 1996 and to Eugene in 2009 so I'm very familiar with the area.
Do you work with Buyers and Sellers? You bet. I work with buyers and sellers with residential and multi family properties.
Who do you work for? Believe it or not, I do get asked this question. I am the Principal Broker & Owner of House 2 Home Real Estate LLC. So, what this means, is I don't pass you to a team member. I personally work with all clients.
Why should I use you to help me sell or help me buy? As I'm sure you can tell by now, I'm upfront and forthcoming. All I've ever known is hard work from my very first job, to being a business owner and I've owned several successful business. Shortly after moving to Oregon I received a Contractors license and although I'm now inactive, I've been involved in the building industry for years. Having built, bought and remodeled and sold homes, I have an understanding about properties and what it takes to repair and maintain, which is helpful to clients when we review home inspection reports and especially when negotiating to get repairs done.
One thing to keep in mind when choosing a Real Estate Broker to represent you whether you are buying or selling....try to connect with someone you like, trust and especially someone who can negotiate on your behalf. A good Broker will save you money.
