    And you think that was specific to that realtor or the overall market conditions? Was it priced low to (A) sell quickly and (B) incite a bidding war?

    I don't need answers to these btw
    Its hard to prove this either way.

    If it sold for what you wanted or more, does it matter? Jordan also sold ours for overlist in 6 hours.. Maybe it should have been priced higher (though who knows, maybe it was perfect?), but we got more than we expected, and didnt have to fart with realtors coming to our house for 2 months. A house across the street took 4 months to sell at less then list (and less than ours). Zero complaints.

    Who knows. My place was by no means an easy sell, and I know he brought in several people to view it even before the listing went up. Now maybe those people would have viewed it later, but he did seem to check all the boxes in terms of leveraging his contacts and experience to maximize my exposure and get me the most competition for the home.

    But he did do an excellent job and I would have no issue contracting his advices again.

    In our opinion, we did not price it low. We were all blown away by how much it sold for and took our money and ran to the new place we bought a few blocks up the road ( if you recall it was a complete tear down that I bought for under lot value to build on ).

    I would not hesitate to call Jordan when it is time to sell. If agents were all like Jordan, we probably wouldn't need to have this conversation. In my experience his value exceeds his cost. Most realtors could not make this claim, unless posting instagram pictures of food and beverage is considered "value" nowadays.

    The people here including @bjstare and @killramos and myself who are talking about Jordan are not unsophisticated folk being snowed by some flashy bus stop bench ads. If anyone would be critical of these types of services, it would be us.

    So in the end, if the customer knows the full cost of the service, feels that they have alternatives, and still feels they got good value for the service, than that's what matters.
    If each party had to scratch a separate cheque to the realtor, that'd be some good transparency.

    Have the two realtors fight to the death for the commission.

    Solves a lot of issues.

    I’ve yet to get less than $7k under ask, or have an accepted offer take longer than a week while using Jordan. (Haven’t moved a property in a hawt market yet either). I have had to strongly suggest higher asking prices a couple times though.

    The value I see is more so thanks to his network of supporting professionals. Just like the rest of his life, he keeps his standards high.

    The true reason to use any realtor though is for a value that you cannot put a number on… to never have to directly deal with the unwashed public. Fuck that, especially in something as major as a home purchase, the general public is awful.

    If I wasn’t a realtor my approach would be, list it myself on the MLS and offer the buying agent their full commission.

    On a million dollar home it will save you $17000.00

    Just find a good real estate lawyer.

    People who don't understand the value of an exceptional real estate agent also don't understand the value of an exceptional lawyer, an exceptional tax accountant, etc. etc.

    And that's fine. It just means you've either never had one, don't have enough exposure to the transactions to understand WHEN you've had a bad or exceptional one, or you're just one of those people who think they're smarter and better at a lot of things than you actually are so you'll never have the capacity to know differently. Which is also fine, the world is full of medicore performers, it's mostly run by them.

    This is one of my favorite bash topics haha
