A few reasons. If we don’t believe we can sell your home, we will tell you, and suggest you choose a different real estate firm. Perhaps, you want the home priced too high. If we don’t believe we can get you the money you want, we would rather not take on your listing. If you will not let us do what we feel is necessary to sell your home, we will not take your listing. Perhaps, you want the home only shown on Saturday. That takes six other days out of the picture. What if there is an interested buyer in town on Friday only? If you don’t let us do what we feel needs to be done to sell your home, we would prefer not to take your listing. Real estate is what we do. Repeatedly. We realize most homeowners have bought and sold a few homes in their lifetime. However, we do more transactions in a month, than most homeowners have done in a lifetime of home ownership. You are contracting us for our expertise. You don’t tell your dentist how to work on your teeth. You don’t tell your attorney how to prepare your case. You don’t tell your mechanic how to work on your car. You and Cherokee Lake Realty are a team. We need your input. You know what makes your home or land special. You know what made it desirable for you to buy it. You know how much you’ve put into it over the years. Share that with us and let us run with it. Remember, if we don’t sell your property we don’t recoup all the time and money we have put into it. You have a financial stake in the process, and so do we. We will not do anything that is not in your best interest. If we are all on the same page, we will take your listing on. If we don’t feel that we can do the job, we would rather not take your listing on than fail you.
