Preferred Vendors

There are over 1500 Realtors in Manitoba. Unless you already have a personal relationship with one of them, it's pretty hard to choose one to represent you in selling your home quickly and for the best dollar value. What are the criteria you should be using to decide? Well, as a somewhat impartial judge (because I'm not a Realtor), but as someone who knows a good portion of those 1500+ Realtors personally, here's what I think you should be looking for:

1. Experience - Realtors in Manitoba can only be Realtors. They aren't allowed a side hustle. If your Realtor has been at it for a couple of years already, that's a good sign that they're doing it right. 

2. Neighbourhood Knowledge - A great question to ask is: How many other houses did you sell in the area last year? (Pro tip: Zero is not a good answer). Does your Realtor know which streets are more desirable around your area? Do they know how the neighbourhood school ranks in comparison to others around the city? Can they talk with authority about current trends in home prices in the area?

3. Online Sales Strategy - It's 2018. If all your Realtor is going to do is take a couple of pictures with her phone and put the pictures on MLS, stick a sign in the front yard and call it a day... not a great choice if you want top dollar and a quick sale. You're paying a bunch of commission, you need to know they're earning it. That means: Pro photos, pro video, Virtual Reality tour and a strong social media campaign to get as many people to see your property as possible. The bottom line is: The more people that see it, the faster it could sell and the higher the chance of a bidding war and a better than average sold price. That's EXACTLY why you pay your Realtor commission after all.

With all that said, here is a group of Realtors that I trust. These are all clients of mine, they're from a whole spectrum of different companies. What they have in common is that they are serious about getting as many people as possible to see your house in Virtual Reality and in the real world! They are the kind of people you would absolutely want to work with to get your house sold fast and for the right price.
