I fell in love with real estate after I bought my first home. It was a multifamily home where I lived in one side and rented out the other. I immediately realized the investment potential of Real Estate and was hooked. Now the reason I decided to become an agent and not just an investor was because of the experience that I had with the agent who helped me buy the home.
She was a nice friendly lady, but didn’t include me in any part of the process. Being my first time buying a home I was very nervous and confused and being left out of the entire process made this even worse. I decided right then and there that I would make explaining and including my clients in every step of the process my priority.
After years of being one of the top agents in one of the "big name" real estate brands I realized something else. Clients didn’t necessarily know what kind of agent they were getting. The big companies have hundreds of agents, some who are good and sell plenty of homes and others who are part-timers, new or sell 2-3 homes a year. The issue I saw was the clients thought because the company had a recognizable name that they were getting a good agent, more often than not they weren’t.
That’s when I decided to open my own brokerage and make a few things clear with every client:
You are getting me as your agent, I have help to maximize your experience, but you are getting an experience agent who has the knowledge and experience of hundreds of homes sold to help you.
You will always be included in everything that goes on before, during, and after your real estate transaction, so that you don’t have the experience I had on my first purchase.
We will do everything in our power to provide white glove service and make your experience the best possible, We are not a national franchise and do not spend millions of dollars advertising ourselves. We are a local family owned business that relies on happy clients and word of mouth.
I am so thankful that you are interested in working with Strickland Realty for your Real Estate needs. I look forward to helping you with your move!
