Why Choose Patterson-Schwartz To Sell Your Home?
Selecting a Realtor to work with you in the sale of your home may seem a bit overwhelming. Some say. "They're all the same". We disagree - and more importantly the buyers and sellers that we have worked with will tell you the same! Here's the short story of why you should list your home with Patterson-Schwartz:
The Best Sales Associates in the Industry
Patterson-Schwartz' greatest asset is our team of over 350 professional Sales Associates. We attract the most professional and knowledgeable Sales Associates because of our commitment to providing superior training and coaching, creative marketing programs and sophisticated technology tools. This means that you are assured of having the very best agent working for you. And don't just take our word - our past customers and clients say it for us!
A Commitment to Exceeding Your Expectations
Uncompromising client service is our mantra! So much so that we survey every buyer and seller upon closing of their transaction and ask for their feedback. To give you an idea of how much we value this input, Dick Christopher, President of Patterson-Schwartz, makes this his personal priority. All surveys are returned directly to his office and acted upon. Last year, we met or exceeded our client's expectations 99.9% of the time.
The Market Leader
For many decades we have been the area’s dominant market leader – a tribute to the quality and character of our Sales Associates, employees and management team. In fact, one in three families who buy or sell a home in our market area will work with a Patterson-Schwartz Sales Associate.
A Company that Adapts to the Market Place
Keeping an eye on key real estate market indicators means we know the pulse of the market place. The local real estate market today is much different than what we experienced over the past five years. In addition, the demographic of the real estate consumer today belongs to the younger generations of our population. The marketing plan that your Patterson-Schwartz Sales Associate will propose for your property will address both of these factors.
Our Value Proposition
At Patterson-Schwartz we recognize that each property is unique and each owner's motivation for selling may be very different. Your Patterson-Schwartz Sales Associate will customize the marketing plan for your property so that it meets and hopefully exceeds your expectations. You can expect hands on management of the sales process from Agreement of Sale, negotiation of Agreement, to troubleshooting and closing of the transaction. Our commission rate is flexible and competitive. And we believe so strongly in our value proposition that we offer the Patterson-Schwartz promise - if at any time you are not satisfied with the expert guidance and service you receive you may fire us with 24 hours notice.
With 50 years of real estate experience we know what brings homebuyers to your door. We constantly adjust our marketing initiatives to address where today’s homebuyer looks for real estate information. Over the last several years the Internet has become the leading source of information for prospective homebuyers - in fact, 89% of today's consumers used the Internet in their home search (National Association of Realtors 2010). As a seller, you can be confident that your home will be exposed to the largest possible pool of potential buyers. Our integrated marketing program effectively combines print, online, mobile and social media channels to your advantage.
Utilizing sophisticated technology enables us to achieve our mutual objective - selling your home quickly for the best price. Technology is a strategic advantage in every facet of our business. It has provided our Sales Associates with the means to operate effectively and efficiently yet maintain the personal touch that you expect.
