Why the Brokerage Your Listing Agent Works for Matters to Home Sellers

Working with a REALTOR® in the right brokerage gets your home sold in the shortest amount of time possible, at the best price.

Choosing a Brokerage that is right for you makes the biggest difference in getting your house sold.

Being a REALTOR® is fun

If you have ever tried your hand at real estate, you may have learned it is not as much fun or as glamourous as you thought. Many people think it would be fun to get their real estate license and help their friends and acquaintances buy and sell homes. But then reality sets in and they find it is hard work plus to be successful requires a host of business skills which few possess.

What does the brokerage do?

What matters most about a brokerage is what the brokerage does to support their agents, not how large the brokerage is. Some brokerages are focused on recruiting more and more agents with a philosophy of everyone knows a few people who will buy or sell a house each year. But others, take a more focused approach and run the brokerage like a team. A brokerage like Active Adults Realty is focused exclusively on working with Baby Boomers and Beyond who are making big decisions about where and how they want to live in retirement.

When you list your home for sale with an Active Adults Realty agent, your agent can focus all their attention on you and your home. We have a team of people who help you and your listing agent with everything from staging your home to taking professional photographs. Our team works to market your home on the company’s website and blog as well as on social media and syndicating your listing to all the top real estate sites.

We also have full-time administrative staff who handle the myriad details of every real estate transaction. This includes coordinating with the settlement attorney, the mortgage company or bank, inspection companies, and the cooperating brokerage representing the other side of the transaction. Making sure everything happens in a timely manner between contract and settlement is a full-time job and is critical to a successful transaction.
