I represent home sellers from a point of view very few real estate agents are even able to understand. The privilege of years of behind the scenes inter dealings with banks and mortgage companies has given me the tools and knowledge necessary to fight for home sellers rights in today's more stringent lending environment. I am able to take the very pressures lenders use to force appraisers to be conservative and challenge low appraisal values when they negatively impact the sale of my clients properties.
The extensive marketing program at Harry Norman is one of the reasons we lead Atlanta as the #1 Real Estate Firm in many categories. Harry Norman is not the best because it is the oldest, it is the oldest because it is the best! We list your house on over 500 websites; we have exclusive relationships with Christie's and Luxury Portfolio; we have an in-house graphic artist to create excellent flyers and marketing materials. In addition, I offer professional photography and HD virtual tours for my clients at my expense.
When you list with me, I measure the house to get an accurate sketch and square footage. I complete a full appraisal to derive market value and price your house for the optimal sale price. This reduces the risk of listing for less than true fair market value. Furthermore, knowing the exact market value allows us to negotiate with facts and make better decisions when we get offers. I also provide advice about what buyers are looking for in a house. Having been involved in over 6,000 real estate transactions, I know what buyers look for time and time again. With my appraisal background I am able to take the guess work out of buying and selling real estate. Of course, when you list with Brent, you get a FREE appraisal.
Once the contract is signed is where my representation goes beyond the typical sales agent. I use my appraisal background and proven techniques to insure the buyer's lender will not be able to provide a conservative appraisal and influence the actual agreed sale price, which is true market value.
Attend one of my free seminars, I go over in detail how I am able to protect sellers from lenders. I like to say, do not fear the appraiser hire the appraiser. I am a certified appraiser armed with a sales license. I typically know more about liability than the lender does and when I inform them of compliance issues they are quick to react.
