From time to time I've had clients sincerely apologize to me for taking my time and causing me hassle for just "my small sale."
I always give them this same explanation:
There's No Such Thing as a "Small Sale" in Real Estate.
Sure, I've helped people purchase million dollar properties and I've helped people purchase a home for $79,000, and everywhere in between. However, if you're planning to spend $100,000 on your home or $800,000, that's a big purchase for YOU. The real estate process is the same on each property regardless of price, and you'll have the same questions whether purchasing that first condo or the dream estate on 2 acres with a pool.
It's important that you are treated equally. For a REALTOR, every sale is important and they all add up. Besides, my hope is to have clients for life, and I'd like to help you eventually sell your first home and buy your second and third ones. If I treated your sale as a small insignificant matter, would you want to work with me again when it was time for your third home?
Moreover, you may be purchasing a one bedroom condo, but perhaps you have friend, colleague, or fourth cousin twice removed that's ready to buy or sell that Great Falls mansion. You'll want to pass my name along, won't you?
Please don't apologize. Your sale is NOT small.
I want to help you whether you're searching high or low.
