Why Use Me, a Realtor, to Sell Your Property?

According to the Houston Associate of Realtors,  Realtors® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge through the process of buying and selling real estate! Normally, a real estate transaction involves the most significant financial investment that most people will experience in their lifetime.

As your Realtor®, I, Christine Kalmbach, will inform you of market conditions, provide you with excellent detail on determining the listing price for your home, negotiate the price you will receive, explain the terms of the contract along with some of the closing costs you will pay. Realtors® will market your property to other agents and firms and potential buyers! Your home’s marketing will include listing on your local multiple listing service (MLS) to give hundreds if not, thousands of opportunities to showcase your home to net an offer.

Many home sales are cooperative sales over 50% of the time – where another agent (other than your own) brings a buyer to purchase your home. I will utilize Flyers, Digital Media, Open Houses, other Agents and more as your marketing coordinator (I have an 80+ Point Marketing Plan)! I will help enhance and present your home to yield the best price in the shortest amount of time with the least amount of hassle! I know the where, when, and how to advertise your property! The National Association of Realtors® shows that 82% of real estate sales are through the efforts of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, family, friends and personal contacts. As your Realtor®, I  can help you objectively evaluate every buyer’s offer without compromising your marketing position. As your Realtor®, I can also guide you through the closing process and make sure everything goes smoothly! The required amount of paperwork can be very overwhelming to sellers! Let me help you sell your home!

Remember a Realtor® is always the best source of information for all your real estate needs! So remember, Christine Kalmbach, as YOUR Realtor and Real Estate Resource for LIFE! Thank you!
