Full Service Real Estate - When You Want Your Property Sold and You Need Your Agent to Go the Extra Mile

08-Aug-2017
The exponential rise of the Australian property market over recent years has created opportunities for new entrants in the market, and new models of real estate business. Yet, amongst all of the new business models questions are being posed about what the client is receiving as part of some of the cut-price offerings now available.

Concern has erupted after some horror stories involving vendors receiving little actual professional assistance by their chosen real estate agent. There are stories about agents erecting signboards, handing over photocopied pamphlets and asking vendors to host their own open home inspections. Some vendors are posted everything needed to host inspections while being offered only telephone ‘negotiation support’, in many cases by agents in locations remote from their properties.

What Happens When Things Don’t Go to Plan?

One of the true tests of a real estate agent is how they perform when things aren’t going to plan? What will they do to help you achieve the best result for your home in today’s market, even if that means going beyond the call to ensure your property sale goes smoothly?

Steven Bashford, of 1on1 Property, is one agent who is familiar with going above and beyond to make sure clients achieve the best possible result from selling their property. With a background in workplace training before he came to real estate sales, Steven knows how process-driven property sales can be, and that a property is never sold until the new owners have paid the vendor and taken possession.

Your Real Estate Professional – Going Above and Beyond

“Three times over the last year I have experienced situations where the buyer and vendor have reached an agreement and exchanged contracts, and it is looking like it is all wrapped-up only to have everything come to a grinding halt before the final step.”

In two cases, Steven dealt with properties that needed to be sold as a result of a deceased estate. These kinds of situations require the skills of an agent who can be sensitive and understanding to the vendors’ circumstances.

“Often you are dealing with people who have experienced the tragic death of a loved one and they’re just not in a place where they can deal with everything that’s going on. You have to be patient and very understanding, taking your time but at the same time focused on getting the result everyone is wanting at the end.”

In one case a property sale almost didn’t proceed as there were some belongings remaining on the property at final inspection. The purchasers were a young couple and just didn't understand the pressures the vendor was experiencing. Also, the solicitors were not intimately involved enough in the transaction, leaving it Steve to work through. It was a situation that would have tested the resolve of many agents, but because of Steven’s dedication and commitment to his clients, a good outcome was secured for all of the parties.

“It took a lot of time and a lot of conversations going back and forth but ultimately we managed a way through the roadblock for both vendor and buyer.”

When you need to get the job done right, you need the right kind of real estate professional. A Real estate professional who is totally focused on delivering results. The right advice and professional approach is priceless when it comes to handling your most valuable asset.
