Negotiating A Great Deal
Experience dealing with REALTORS® is always handy when you are trying to negotiate a legally binding contract. I am a Certified Negotiation Expert, and have plenty of experience dealing with other agents. Having a strong consitution, understanding the psychology of each scenario, and ability to communicate effectively with the other party are paramount to a successful negotiation. I thrive under the pressure of a tough negotiation and have a great poker face.
It’s always important to know when to walk away from a negotiation as well. I’m not the type of agent who is interested in a quick sale for my benefit, I’m always happy to walk away from a deal if it’s in my clients best interests.
Knowing When To Sell
Markets fluctuate all the time. When governments change, markets can fluctuate. When the price of energy changes, markets can fluctuate. When currency exchange rates change, markets can fluctuate.

I also have my finger on the pulse, and do my very best to keep my clients informed at all times. Most times it’s just a matter of upgrading to another property, but it’s still important to be able to time it properly so you come out ahead.
