We understand there are a lot of choices when it comes to real estate agents or teams. We would love the opportunity to interview to help you achieve your real estate goals. Here are 10 reasons to give us a shot:
(1) Relationships – It’s All About You!
Business is personal to us. You are not just another transaction to us. We truly care about you and your goals. We run a referral-based business, so our #1 focus is to provide you with a 10+ experience, so you will tell all your friends & co-workers about us. 80% of our business comes from referrals and repeat-business. Some of our clients have purchased 3 or 4 homes from us already. We want to be your real estate resource for life. We can also help you with your remodel/refresh, refinance, re-insuring your home, finding a renter & investing.
(2) Focus on the Customer Experience
We have over 130+ 5-star reviews: www.zillow.com/profile/beachandblvd
And some reviews on www.facebook.com/beachandblvd
80% of our business is Referral & Repeat business. Your satisfaction is the key to our success!
(3) Our History of extraordinary results & success
Don’t just hire us b/c you know, like or trust. Hire us b/c you know we are the best at what we do. We have gained a lot of experience & expertise, have won numerous awards, and attended hundreds of trainings, conferences and Masterminds all around the country. Most recently we surpassed $100 Million in sales & over 100 units sold (2019), which puts us in the top 10 real estate teams in Washington State. We’ve been the #1 team at Keller Williams Realty Seattle for the past 3 years (units, growth, volume).
Our Listing Results are simply incredible! Our historic average sold price to list price is 102%! That means in the past decade of selling real estate, we have been able to sell homes above the list price (by creating bidding wars). The NWMLS average is closer to 96-98%, and FSBO sellers are around 85%. For most of our listings we can generate offers within 21 days, but typically within the 1st week!
(4) Proven Marketing – Old school + Digital/social media
Thru our marketing & experience, we create results that sellers can’t on their own. We also create results that most agents are not able to create.
Old school techniques – agent-to-agent, postcard mailers, and leveraging our huge network of over 10,000 LinkedIn/Facebook contacts
Digital/Social media marketing
The #1 marketing platform is Facebook. We are able to run our ads run thru the Keller Williams Facebook account. KW is the #1 brokerage in the U.S, so that gives us better placement and generates more relevant leads for your property.
(5) The Perfect size team, to help you achieve your real estate goals
As a team we have more leverage and bandwidth to help our clients. Our team is not too big (where you get lost in the shuffle), and not too small (where we lack resources). We are the perfect size, where you can still talk to the owners, and everyone’s on a 1st name basis. We are large enough to have the right resources, like a big marketing budget, and tools to provide you a 10+ experience. The typical agent spends less than $5000/year on marketing, where our average budget is around $75,000-$100K/yr.
Doing a higher volume of deals (1-2 each week) also allows us to keep our pulse on the market. We can give our clients the best possible advice and the most up-to-date market data. The average agent only does around 4-5 deals/year, which is not nearly enough to stay current.
(6) You are working with not just the #1 team, but the #1 brokerage in the U.S. – Keller Williams Realty (KW). It’s the biggest (170,000 agents), #1 in units sold, and #1 in sales volume. KW is the “Amazon” of real estate. KW’s focus is to the agents and serving clients, not to shareholders. CEO Gary Keller was rated “Most Influential” 2019.
KW has won numerous awards for Top Workplace, Top Training Company (in the Hall-of-Fame), and our Kelle app was voted Inman’s “Most Innovative”.
(7) Experts in helping you get the Home ready-for-sale:
Since we do so many “mini-remodel” projects for our clients (around 30 each year), we have access to the best vendors at discounted prices that we can share with you.
We own a staging & design business, staffed with In-house Staging & design professionals. Since we own all of our furniture & accessories we can offer you high-quality, effective staging services at a fraction of the cost of hiring a staging company.
(8) Savings! On loans, refinancing, and insurance
Since Keller Williams is the largest franchise, they have used their size to negotiate some amazing deals with vendors and companies, so we’re able to pass those savings onto you:
-Special Financing for Buyers thru Keller Mortgage “no-fee” loan, saving our clients on average $5000! Plus you get a $1000 closing cost credit. Visit: Preapproval.kellermortgage.com
Our past clients have access to this same “no-fee” loan for Refinancing (saving you thousands!)
-Keller Covered allows you to shop multiple home insurance providers at the same time, and use special group rates that Keller Williams Realty was able to negotiate.
(9) The Beach & Blvd Club / Post-Sale Support
The fun part starts after the transaction. Many buyers have questions during their first year of home ownership, so we do multiple check-ins and also recommend our buyers purchase a home warranty to protect their investment. We created the B&B Club which consists of quarterly client-appreciation events, our monthly newsletter, and free giveaways+swag throughout the year.
(10) Our Culture of Giving & Community
Keller Williams (KW) Realty has an amazing culture that gives back to the community thru agent involvement (Red Day), KW Kids Can, Quantum Leap (highschoolers), and even disaster relief efforts (like Hurricane Harvey in Houston).
At Beach & Blvd we give a portion of our income each month to our community, church and charities. And participate in several fundraisers throughout the year.
