In every field there are Top Performers with similar characteristics. Most notably setting these agents apart from the pack, is their passion for their industry, coupled with a foundation of high volume of work/hours and a commitment to excellence to hone their craft.
Let us be perfectly clear here… there are zero Top Performers who are part-time real estate agents in Vernon and the Okanagan Valley. The agents who hold other jobs or only work part-time due to unrelated obligations and or their inability or lack of interest in working at minimum 40 hours per week (but usually twice that) to become the best in their field are NOT top performers in the real estate industry in the North Okanagan.
This is a common question in buying and selling real estate in Vernon and the North Okanagan. Are YOU, the sales agent, experienced?
Should a seller or buyer be looking to work with that grizzled agent of 35+ years experience OR… the newly minted fresh agent, perhaps your best friend’s grandson, trying to get a start in the real estate industry in Vernon? It’s a good question.
In a strong seller’s market like the one we have now there are many occasions (weekly) where our listed homes are getting multiple offers. This is terrific for our sellers as the auction effect kicks in and buyers jockey for writing the best offer to win the bidding competition. Now on these occasions, the seller usually does really well as we (listing agent) provide the rules & guidelines of the competition for the buyers. In most occasions, we will even rank (price, terms, dates) what is most important for the seller so the buyers know where to put their focus when writing their offer.
