Is having the top Real Estate agents on your side really so important?

Real Estate is one of life’s most important purchases. Few purchasing decisions invoke as much emotion as buying, selling and leasing property.

Considering the average human will spend approximately 60% of their time in the comfort of their own home, it shouldn’t come as much of a shock that the average property purchaser will invest more than 120 hours sifting through homes before finalizing the purchase of a new property.

Be it trawling websites such as Allhomes or RealEstate.com.au, driving through the suburbs they like most or physically inspecting the houses that jump out at them; it’s a huge amount of time being invested.

And for many, this purchase will be their castle; to others, an investment that sees them rewarded with life-long income and for most it’s an opportunity to leave our legacy behind for generations to come.

Understanding this is the key to getting results when selling property. Anyone looking to get the best price for their Canberran home undoubtedly need the best Real Estate agents on their side.

What do the best Real Estate Agents in Canberra do differently?

Excelling in any field requires extraordinary amounts of not only natural talent, but true dedication to your art. We used to believe that in order to master your craft you needed to invest a minimum of 10,000 hours into finely honing your skills. Whilst many studies have refuted the 10,000 hour rule, there’s no denying that the best Real Estate Agents – not only in Canberra but across the globe – truly live for property.

 

The greatest Real Estate Agents think strategically

It’s not something we really associate with selling houses, but Real Estate is much like a game of chess. Any good agent must have a deep understanding of human psychology, knowing what features appeal to which types of people and being able to develop a unique strategy based on those features is vital. It might be a house that’s recently been rezoned for multi-development. Maybe your property is within the acceptance zone of a sought-after school. Targeting the right people with the right message at the right time is all part of the best Real Estate strategies.

 

Negotiation is always key to getting the best results

Further to psychology, being able to pick up on subtle body language and tones of voice and using that to understand a buyers perspective and thoughts is key to negotiating the best possible price. Just like a gifted poker player, the best Real Estate Agents can see through a buyer’s bluff. We use this understanding to work out who time is best spent speaking with which opens up negotiation opportunities for better results.

 

Listening is as important, if not more, than speaking

We often assume salespeople need to be the loudest, or be talking all the time. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Incredible Real Estate Agents know that by listening to people, they gain invaluable knowledge they can use to leverage a negotiation in their favor.

 

The best Real Estate agents know how to build rapport

Being able to engage openly with people from all walks of life is extremely important in Real Estate. You never know who’s going to be most interested in a property until you get to know your potential buyers. If people don’t trust their Real Estate Agent, they won’t open up and share information needed to progress the sale of your house.

 

Better agents dedicate themselves to the profession

Maybe it’s the countless hours spent watching classic programs such as “Location, Location, Location”. Maybe it’s braving those frosty Winter mornings time and time again, opening homes and exuding excitement for potential buyers. Regardless, the best Real Estate Agents in Canberra completely lose themselves in their profession.

"I have never given a review before but I have to say they are THE BEST agent I have ever had. They are very professional and always keep you informed. I really appreciate all the help and effort they have given to me. You can always have a nice time chatting with them."

Simon Li via Google Reviews

"Real Estate Australia offer personalised service to their customers. We experienced this first hand on various occasions. They are always available, friendly and supportive. We're lucky to have them as our agent. 🙂 🙂 🙂"

Mary Shahin Elkhoury via Facebook Reviews

"We used Real Estate Australia to sell one of our apartments in the City back in January. We wanted an agent with experience and while it wasn't a deciding factor we were pretty keen on the fact that Peter (our owner) had grown up in Canberra and had spent most of his life in Real Estate so he knew the lore of the land.

This was our first time selling a property (we invest a lot but have always rented our properties out) and it was nice to have someone who could answer all of our questions. We had pretty clear expectations and were happy with the final price we got. Very happy with our experience."

Amy D'Ambrosio via Google Reviews

"Jane has been managing my property for the last 3 years and after dealing with a much larger agency where the property manager had no experience, I'm very happy I decided to come across. Whenever I come into the office Jane's always up for a chat which is a nice change of pace to what I've experienced before. Thanks Jane it's been a pleasure - Cheers, Seth"

Seth Anders via Google Reviews

"We are very satisfied clients of Peter's real estate agency (for property purchases, sales, and property management of all our rental properties) over the past 15+ years since 2002.

Both Peter (and Jane who deals with property management) are very hard-working people who can be trusted to be concerned with details, and they are reachable at all times."

Hea Liaw via Google Reviews

"Peter and Jane have been looking after our properties for the past two years and we are very happy with their service. Peter was very efficient at putting the rental ads up online and organising open inspections. As a result we rented our places out very quickly. we highly recommend Real Estate Australia to anyone who needs to rent or sell properties in Canberra."

Michelle Huang via Google Reviews

"Peter sold a property for me in Chapman about 6 months ago, have to admit I was a bit upset at first as he kept pushing me to get a property stylist in... 2 months later he ended up getting me about $15k more than the asking price so I made about $12k even after the rental furniture. Was very skeptical at first but I guess that's what you get when you're an old sod like me. Didn't expect such a great result and Peter always followed up when he said he would, highly recommend."

Matt O'Callaghan via Google Reviews

"Lovely staff who made finding our current home easy"

Chiyedza Murwisi via Facebook Reviews

"I have been a Tenant of one of the properties they manage for past 3 years . I found the staff are very approachable, understanding and very helpful. Highly systematic approach in managing the property starting from periodic inspections to any maintenance request , their approach and communications are highly commendable ."

Shiva Sivasubramaniam via Google Reviews

"they've been looking after our place n it hasn't burnt down yet so they must be doing something right!"
