Why it’s important to hire a Negotiation Expert when selling your home
You may be surprised to learn that certain things matter when negotiating, like the type of words that you say, or your tone, or how quickly you answer a question. You wouldn’t know how any one of those things can drastically affect the outcome of negotiations unless you’ve had extensive training on how to properly negotiate.
Think about this: If the average agent only sells 4 to 5 homes per year, are they really able to negotiate on your behalf to get you the best outcome? It’s scary to think that someone with such little experience can be negotiating on your largest investment.
It may seem like all real estate agents are the same, but that simply isn’t the case. Choosing the right agent to sell your home will impact how much money ends up in your pocket when the sale is complete.

Please keep your mouth shut. Okay, that may sound mean. What do I mean by that? Well, over the last 17 years of selling hundreds of homes throughout Seattle King County and Snohomish County, I can’t tell you all the craziness we’ve seen in this industry. Make sure you let Sandra and I do the negotiating for you. You can’t imagine the cats that you can let out of the bag, when you talk to the buyer or the buyer’s agent. You may think that you’re being nice, but you never know that what you may say, could actually kill the deal or cost you an enormous amount of money. Negotiations are another key factor when selling. So when you want to hire the agent who has an extensive training in negotiations, call us,
I’m a certified negotiating expert. I’ve been taught more than the average bear when it comes to negotiating, you wouldn’t believe that certain things matter when negotiating like the type of words that you say, or your tone, or how quickly you answer questions. You wouldn’t know how any one of those things can drastically affect the outcome of negotiations, unless you’ve had extensive training on how to properly negotiate. Think about this. If the average agent only sells four to five homes a year, are they really able to negotiate on your behalf to the best of their ability? We’ve sold hundreds of homes and negotiating and market knowledge is my specialty on our team. It’s scary to think that someone with such a little experience can negotiate on your largest investment. Bottom line, you’ve got to be careful, not all agents are created equal, just because your brothers, sisters, aunt got a real estate license a year ago and is going to be discounting their commission by a percent or two. Watch out, that 1% savings that you’d think you’re getting can actually cost you thousands and thousands of dollars due to lack of experience, knowledge and expertise. It’s kind of like that awesome thing. And I’ll let you fill out what that thing is that you got at a discount store that seemed like such a great deal at the time, and then ended up falling apart and costing you such a headache. And that’s just a thing, imagine your home sale falling apart. It’s your most valued asset. So don’t leave the biggest investment of your entire life in the hands of someone who only sells a few homes a year. Go to an expert, go to someone who’s going to expose your home to the masses, who’s an expert in their game, who takes their job seriously, who does it full time and is an experienced negotiator.
You can see how important it is to work with an experienced team.
