The “licensed Riverside real estate agent” line that appears beneath a local Realtor’s® name may be printed in small type, but it actually signifies large value. Today Riverside’s buyers and sellers can take for granted that their transactions will be executed in a manner that’s both transparent and completely reliable. For those who have ever had to deal with more arcane systems in other countries, the difference can be critical.
One factor that contributes to the smooth running of today’s system lies in education. Real estate agent training comes in two tiers. Formal classroom education is the first step—the true difference-maker comes later. Since California and Riverside legal regulations guide all real estate transactions, every agent must learn how to apply them in practice—that’s demonstrated by Riverside agents when they pass the state-administered licensing examination.
The second part is experience—the field knowledge that comes from successfully guiding clients through unique circumstances (and just about every transaction winds up including some of those). But concluding a successful deal is only the culmination of any number of other daily activities that go into producing the service we provide:
- • Retrieving and reviewing Riverside Multiple Listing Service activity reports.
Riverside real estate agents keep their fingers on the pulse of the market—intelligence that is the basis for their clients’ sound decision-making.
- • Monitoring and responding to online contacts
As messaging and emailing become omnipresent in real estate activity, short response times are increasingly valuable.
- • Scheduling showings
Accommodating both owners and buyers with a minimum of stress takes poise and organizational perseverance.
- • Creating and executing media marketing
The design and execution of eye-catching listings is only the start of media campaigns that lead to successful closings.
To bring you maximum value and the results you’re looking for, the Riverside real estate agent you choose will be called upon to wear many hats. At the same time, the education part also never ends—ongoing additional training is part of the job of being a top agent.
I hope you will consider my credentials when you make that important choice!
