Why Your Listing Agent Matters

karate PicDoes 35 years of experience in the North Tahoe  real estate market matter ?   Should dual licenses and long-time residency in both of Lake Tahoe’s states California and Nevada be important to informing a clients as to all the options and advantages in the Lake Tahoe market ?  Is a law degree and a distinguished history of recognized community involvement of any significance to your goals in selecting a real estate broker ?    (including running a highly-regarded children’s martial arts program for 18 yrs)

The answer is yes  … with a caveat:  look for ‘experience’ in a broker but also keep in mind that experience can be ‘yesterday’s news’  in a 21st Century real estate market driven by hi-tech and on-line services.    We also provide cutting edge and (surprisingly) unique services typically ignored or overlooked by most other local brokers; ex: high quality professional photography for all listings no matter its value,  staging services (the magic wand for successful listings),  on-line periodic Market Snapshots specific to your property or targeted neighborhood for purchase,  auto-notifications for brand new listings (crucial to buyers wanting first crack at the best listings),  and one of Lake Tahoe’s most engaging and entertaining newsletters   – The Inside Track – personally written by Mike Willette.   To receive it four times p/yr  …  e-mail Mike at thelake@sbcglobal.net
