When you list a property and hope for multiple offers, a couple of things can happen: 1.  You can receive one offer at full price 2.  You can receive multiple offers 3.  You can wait and wait and wait. Here's an example:  A young couple decided to sell their home and due to the market expected to receive multiple offers.  On the first day on the market, the received an offer for the full price, no financing clause, just inspection.  Well, they felt that if they got an offer on the first day there must be more coming. There were showings back to back and on some days showings were overlapping.  But no other offers came in, the property sat on the market for several weeks and finally, the price was reduced and an offer was received.  Conclusion:  They made less money because they waited. ...

The best compliment a client can give her real estate agent is an unsolicited testimonial.  Here's one that I received recently. March 28, 2010  Dear Friends & Neighbours Some of you may have been surprised at how quickly our house sold. So were we! I call our agent ‘Super Agent'. I came acquainted with Irene Bilinski in 2008 when I was looking for a townhouse for our daughter. Irene quickly assessed what I was searching for and found a house on the first day, AND got a great price for me. I talked with Irene again in November 2009 when we finally decided it was time to downsize. We didn't sign a contract to sell until March 10. Since November Irene and her assistant Janet Falle, spent a lot of time and effort advising me how to declutter and show our house, gave me references for work ...
