It's not always what you know, but who you know that matters.
For most agents, a database of contacts is a list of their friends, previous clients, and family. They work their database to get business. For themselves, not for you. We're taught as agents to keep this database close, to stay in touch to build our businesses.
So when they list your home for sale, they do all sorts of things to scramble and find a potential buyer for your home. They struggle to find the name or email or phone number of someone who might be interested in your home. That's why they take 2-3 months to find a buyer for your home.

We have all sorts of websites in place to make contact with future buyers. Most people start looking at homes 6-9 months before they actually buy, and that's when we make contact with them; before the other agents even think to notice them.
So while they're scrambling around, hoping to maybe possibly make contact with a potential buyer, we're already in touch with those buyers. We've had months to get to know them, build trust between us, and identify any pitfalls that may arise when they buy a home. Which are pitfalls that may arise when you sell your home.
That's why our homes sell faster and for more money than other agents'. Because we started working for you months ago.
Other Agents Have Buyers Too!
Statistically, more than 90% of homes are sold by an exclusive buyers agent, which means the buyer has an agent and the seller has a different agent.
So the Nice Agents spend a great deal of time and effort nurturing relationships with other agents in the area. Yes, we get to know and befriend our competitors. So when they have a buyer for your home, and they in turn like and trust your agent, they are more likely to guide their buyers to offer on your home.
John sits on the Realtors Association Board of Directors, and Ben has a long history of volunteer work in the industry, including the Stollery Toys Bike Ride, organizing fundraisers, and even serving on the Board of Directors of our Charitable Foundation. We are proud of the excellent reputation we have built in the industry over the past couple of decades.
This may seem like a small thing to some, but when 90% of the buyers out there have a preexisting relationship with an agent... these relationships could be the difference between selling your home or not.
