What To Look For In a Listing Team?

Education – An important factor in choosing a real estate team is their education in the real estate industry. We take pride is seeking out advanced training and education outside of our small pond in order to be among the top agents in the world at our craft. We are part of the Tom Ferry coaching network of real estate professionals and attend conferences and learning opportunities all over the country multiple times a year to further our education and stay cutting edge in our approach.

Experience and Expertise – You want a full-time agent with a dedicated team who is familiar with the greater Steamboat Springs real estate market, your specific area, and the type of property you intend to sell. Does he or she employ a diverse range of marketing and advertising strategies? How tech-savvy is your agent? How many similar properties has he or she been able to sell in the past and how do their online reviews stack up? We have been a leading force in the Steamboat Springs real estate space since 2006 and continue to push the envelope on sales, strategy and execution day after day. Experience truly does matter. A real estate license can be obtained simply by taking one college course and passing an exam. When you hire our team, you get to feel comfortable knowing that you’re with one of the most experienced teams in the industry.

Availability and Commitment – Real Estate never stops and neither should your team of pros. Sometimes decisions need to be made after hours and whenever it’s convenient for you. Your agent should be capable of prompt and decisive action during the course of selling your property. Does your agent make it a point to keep in touch with you constantly? Can your agent easily be contacted in case of emergencies or even for simple questions? Is your agent available on the weekends or in the evenings when most buyers are out looking?

Partnership and Collaboration – Selling a home is a super important event and is often a very personal and unique situation to any given person or family. Having a trusted advisor that takes the time to listen to your goals and clarify your needs is paramount. Can your agent understand your unique situation and be genuinely committed to the outcome of the process? Your listing agent will be your guide and partner in this crucial time, so it is important to find one with whom you can get along and trust.

Market Knowledge – Understanding the complex and ever changing landscape of your current market is a challenge even for a dedicated professional team of experts and nearly impossible for anyone else. There are so many nuances of the market that can and will affect your sale or lack thereof and its one of the things that we do our very best to stay in tune with every step of the way as we recommend pricing strategies and position your property to sell on your terms.

Marketing and Reach – As you think about selling your home, you might not think in terms of ‘marketing’ it and you shouldn’t have to. After all, you are probably not a marketer, but your agent better be. The truth is, marketing is a very important part of selling a home in every case because it helps you attract more buyers and sell your home faster and for more money. The trick is, not all marketing is created equal and market conditions dictate which marketing strategies may be effective and which are a waste of time. We specialize in marketing high-end properties in the Routt county and Steamboat Springs real estate markets specific to the current market conditions and we have the stats and track record to prove it.

Negotiations – A good negotiator can easily pay for their fee multiple times over again. Probably one of the most underrated attributes of a good real estate agent and one of the things that can literally make or break a sale and has the potential to either make you or lose you a lot of money. Many people don’t realize it but there are at least 3 major points of negotiation during a typical real estate sale. Our listing specialist and owner of Team Yazbeck, Robert Yazbeck, takes negotiations very seriously and is easily one of the best negotiators in the business.
