"She Kept Her Promise..."

"I am a very busy guy. My time is valuable. I am handling this transaction as part of an estate. I don’t live near the property and I understand very little about real estate or the local market. . I needed someone who would come in, take command and deliver results. Everybody I know suggested “their” agent. I ended up with 21 recommendations. I interviewed five in-person after setting up a rating system. Applewhite got the listing. What did she do different than the others?

She started by asking my communication preferences, email, text message, phone ? How often should she communicate and what events should trigger a text message? She was honest. She said the property was a wreck and it needed some TLC if it was going to sell. In her proposal she suggested 3 local painters, 3 local carpet companies, landscapers and house cleaners and a list of tasks that would maximize value.

Finally, she agreed to facilitate the upgrades (contractor access to the property, final inspections and design suggestions if I selected my preferred subcontractors. She knew I was too distant to make this happen myself.

She kept her promise. The prep was painless and took half the expected time to complete. Conclusion to this process? The property sold in 5 days for the full asking price, all cash, no contingencies. Applewhite provided the game plan, executed it flawlessly and delivered exactly what she promised."
