Selling a Home With Kirk Short - RE/MAX Realty Professionals - Wichita, KS Real Estate
What To Expect From Kirk Short When Selling Your Home in the Wichita, KS Metro Area
Are you thinking of selling your home in the Wichita Kansas area? There is much work to do and things to consider before hammering the real estate sign in your front yard. The first step being preparing your home to put on the market. Once your home is ready, it's time to interview prospective realtors. Most people don't know how to properly interview a realtor, and what questions to ask to point you to the realtor who is most qualified and likely to sell your home in the fastest time possible for the best price possible.
Nearly all realtors will put a sign in your yard and submit your listing to the Springfield MLS. They might even hold an open house and place an ad in the local newspaper. What do I offer that sets me apart?
Marketing - Let's face it...nobody buys a home out of the Springfield NewsLeader these days. It's all internet. If your agent is not heavy on internet advertising, your chances of selling are greatly diminished. Your home will be featured on each of my websites, including www.WichitaHomeTeam.com & www.Wichita-Homes.com. I will syndicate your listing across the internet to various real estate websites, including, but not limited to, Realtor.com, Remax.com, Trulia, Zillow, HotPads, Oodle, Yahoo!, GoogleBase, Craigslist, FrontDoor, and more.
Reporting - I will provide you with Bi-weekly reports from my various websites showing how much activity you've received on the various websites, including how many views your listing has received, and how many people "clicked" on your listing for more information.
Showing Feedback - Electronic lockboxes allow realtors to monitor the showings on their listings. Each morning I check my showings for the previous day and send feedback reports via Centralized SHowings and http://www.WichitaHomeTeam.com. The showing agent will be asked to answer questions regarding your home such as how the home showed, whether the price is above market, below market, or just right, what their buyer's thoughts were of the home, and any suggestions they may have regarding your home. The agent's feedback is e-mailed to you so you're getting fresh, unfiltered feedback straight from the source.
Customer Service - Real estate is my full-time job. By full-time, I don't mean that I only work 40 hours per week. I work each time my phone rings. The phone number on the sign in your yard is my personal cell phone number. Prospective buyers will not have to be routed through my office or answering service, or be connected to an office voicemail that is only checked once a day. Their call comes straight to me. And yes....I answer my phone. :)

|Arriving to Wichita as a move for a job was a daunting task for a soon to be college graduate. Kirk showed me and my family the city/apartments/homes with great enthusiasm and expertise. Great guy/broker/owner. Although I ended up not purchasing a home due to financial and job term concerns once college debt is paid off if I will be in the city for a while I am definitely seeking Kirk's help.|
|I thoroughly enjoyed working with Kirk. He made the house hunting process easy and fun. He was very responsive to my questions and provided excellent guidance. I highly recommend Kirk short Jen|
|Absolutely NOTHING I could say bad about Kirk and his staff. Kirk and his staff accommodated me with sell of my home. Kirk worked with me and my lender day after day in a stressful situation to sell my home in today's market. He took his job as my broker beyond the job description.|
|I used Kirk Short to purchase a duplex as part of a long term investment plan and the property we were looking at required a lot of work. We had to organize about half a dozen different contractors with very tight time constraints while making sure that the situation was livable for a current tenant. It was a massive project! Kirk's expertise and connections in the community made a near impossible real estate transaction possible. As the Director of Operations for a local small business, my time is very valuable and I don't have much of it. Without Kirk's support, excellent follow through, and community connections, I don't know that I could have pulled off this transaction, and likely would have been far less happy with it. As my business has opened two locations in the last two years, I've worked with about 15 real estate agents in that period and most have been relatively disappointing. Kirk's enthusiasm and ability for seeing a way through difficult problems made him the absolute right person for the job and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to purchase a house.|
