An invitation to you as a Seller from William L. Smith, Broker/Team Leader of the William Smith Luxury Group
Thank you for visiting us on out website and allowing us to be included in your research for the decision to market your home. My Team and I will provide you with the service and communication that you would expect from a team of real estate professionals. Additional resume and testimonial information are included with this link… http://reach150.com/m/review/65464/coldwell-banker-del-monte-realty-william-smith-pebble-beach-ca-real-estate-broker?id=65464&code=hZVddhb49vjEM8UN9xnU&showModal=RECO# . We will arrange for you to be properly served as we arrange for your comfort in your home while we show your property to prospective buyers. When we find a buyer for your property, we will help you to complete the escrow process quickly and efficiently.
While doing your research, you are likely going to speak with other real estate agents about marketing your property. Here is a list of important questions to ask the agents that you are interviewing. They include:
Important questions for you to ask any real estate agent that you interview:
(1) “What is your track record as a listing agent?”
(2) “How many of your listings have you sold in your career?”
(3) “Home may listings have you sold in my area as the listing agent?”
(4) “Are you a licensed real estate broker?”
(5) “Do you have a team of real estate professionals that supports you and your marketing system? (Or are you member of a team?)”
(6) “Are you active online and with social media?” How many Friends/Followers do you have on your real estate and personal real estate promo page?
(7) “Will you have an interactive online presence with an individual website for my home?”
(8) “How often will you hold my home open for open houses?”
(9) “How often will you contact me with updates on the sales progress?”
(10) “Can you get my home sold?"
"In the past 30 years as a licensed real estate broker, I have closed over 1640 real estate transactions. The average California agent sells less than eight per year. Of the 1640 closed, over 70% were sales in which I represented my sellers. Most importantly, over 25% of my sold listings were properties that had previously been listed with other agents and did not sell. I got them sold. I'm not telling you these numbers to impress you...I'm telling you these numbers to impress upon you that we have systems in place that make a dramatic difference.
“Here is the link to my Zillow Profile Map that shows the number of home that I have sold in your area and surrounding areas https://www.zillow.com/profile/William-Smith-Luxury/ . We actively use online real estate websites with over 700 international sites showing our listings. We also use social media to promote our brand and listings. My social media includes Facebook with 4,966 friends/follows on my personal (this is real estate and community lifestyle page) https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000091744460 and 1,161 followers who have liked my William Smith Luxury Group Real Estate Business page https://www.facebook.com/WilliamSmithLuxuryGroup/ . Facebook allows us to target market for buyer with our Boosting advertising to develop and nurture our buyer leads. We also actively market on Zillow and Trulia as a Premier broker, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, and Instagram.
“My team is the William Smith Luxury Group… A team of real estate professionals assists me with my seller listing inventory marketing, our online buyer leads, and open house buyer leads. After selling my two franchise offices of Prudential California Realty in 2006 when my wife retired as our managing Broker, I moved my team to Coldwell Banker Realty. My team consists of two team agents that follow through with the buyer lead follow up, a transaction coordinator who handles all of the file detail and disclosure follow up support, and a marketing coordinator who assists us with our Coldwell Banker Listing Concierge marketing including the individual listing websites, professional photography, and the list of EXCLUSIVE LISTING CONCIERGE PROPERTY MARKETING FOR LUXURY HOMES displayed below. I focus on the needs of our Sellers.
“Based upon your request, we will hold your home open most every week until your home sells, less if more convenient, or if you choose … no open houses at all.
“We will contact you weekly for a general update by telephone or email and each time there is activity, or a showing, you will have an email update during marketing phase. When we have an offer, we will call you multiple times a day until it is a ratified and accepted contract ready for escrow. During the escrow period we will contact you several times a week by telephone and email. We follow the needs and requirements of our sellers.”
With your permission as your Broker, we would create the widest possible demand for your home, possibly even getting potential buyers to bid against each other for the right to buy your property. We will use the most up-to-date and unique marketing strategies available. I would like to meet with you, see your property, and discuss what you would like to accomplish. We will present you with a Comparative Market Analysis on recent sales of comparative homes in your area so that you have current market statistics to make informed decisions.
Below is the new Concierge Marketing Plan that came out last year for our Northern California Division of Coldwell Banker Realty. We are very excited about the program. It is very expensive for us to offer, but Coldwell Banker will assist with Co-Op funds. The details are below and attached above in a PDF file.
