America has a wonderful tradition of home ownership. Most of the people we work with have a wealth of experience in buying and/or selling homes. Usually, however, the experiences have been in places other than Southwest Florida, and they have been in different times and market conditions.
There are many essential ingredients in being a successful, effective realtor. Honesty, integrity, competence, dependability, willingness to work, and the ability to communicate are all vital pieces of the puzzle. Local knowledge of the market is also a key ingredient. That is the reason many “up north” realtors use us when buying or selling their own home in the Bonita Springs area.
Sometimes when we meet with homeowners who want to sell, our knowledge of the local market falls on deaf ears. They already “know” the market value of their home. They tend to be in denial of the current state of the market, and fully expect that a buyer will appreciate their home so much that they will pay more than its market value. Usually, these homeowners come around after a period of futility. Sometimes, they go through multiple realtors and have their home on the market for many years.
Sometimes we work with buyers who “know” the housing market is so desperate that they can “steal” the home of their dreams. These folks can be a realtor’s nightmare, as they search high and low and make offer after offer that is rejected as ridiculous.
There are many effective realtors in Southwest Florida who also have local knowledge based on years of actual experience in our market. These are the professionals, who are successful in selling their customers’ homes; who are successful in educating buyers on the best options based on their needs, and an appropriate price to offer.
We like to think that the Boeglin Team has all of the ingredients to be effective realtors for our customers—both sellers and buyers. The feedback that Coldwell Banker receives from our customers confirms our belief. Let us work for you.
