Q: How long have you been in residential real estate sales? Is it your full-time job? (While experience is no guarantee of skill, real estate, like many other professions, is mostly learned on the job.)

A: Since October 2006 Real Estate has been my full time job.

Q: How many homes did you and your company sell last year?

A: I sold 55 homes in 2014 totaling $6 Million in Residential Real Estate Sales.

Q: What types of specific marketing systems and approaches will you use to sell my home? (Look for someone who has aggressive, innovative approaches, not just someone who’s going to put a sign in the yard and hope for the best.)

A: I will send you my custom made Seller's marketing proposal. With my KW Tech Training background, I use nothing but the best, cutting edge technology. The Craig Group's marketing approach is like no other and is highly unlikely to be duplicated.

Q: Will you represent me exclusively, or will you represent both the buyer and the seller in the transaction? (While it’s usually legal to represent both parties in a transaction, it’s important to understand where the practitioner’s obligations lie. A good practitioner will explain the agency relationship to you and describe the rights of each party. It’s also possible to insist that the practitioner represent you exclusively.)

A: We will review the agency disclosure form and discuss whatever questions you may have.

Q: Can you recommend service providers who can assist me in obtaining a mortgage, making repairs on my home, and other things I need done? (Keep in mind here that real estate professionals should generally recommend more than one provider and should tell you if they receive any compensation from any provider.)

A: See my list of title companies, lenders, inspectors, contractors and insurance agents.

Q: What type of support and supervision does your brokerage office provide to you? (Having resources, such as in-house support staff, access to a real estate attorney, or assistance with technology, can help a real estate professional sell your home.)

A. I will make this as short as possible, but it is hard to make this answer short, when Keller Williams Realty, Inc. has received so many awards for its greatness. In 2014, Keller Williams was name Principal 10 Best Companies for Employee Financial Security by Inc. magazine for commitment to financial and physical wellness and also received an award by J.D. Power and Associates for being Ranked Highest in Customer Satisfaction Among Home Buyers and Home Sellers to name a couple.

Keller Williams Realty New Orleans is the Number 1 Office in the New Orleans Metro area for the entire year of 2014. Keller Williams Realty New Orleans (KWRNO) sets extremely high standards of ethics and professionalism for all of its agents and is intensely focused on providing them with the training, support, resources and technology they need to ensure that our clients’ interests come first and that they receive the highest level of service possible.

Being an independently owned and operated franchise, KWRNO has the best of both worlds. We benefit from the support provided by Keller Williams Realty International in such areas as technology, marketing, agent training, international market presence and an incredible network of self-generating referrals of potential buyers from outside our local area who are relocating to the metropolitan area. However, since we are an independent company, Keller Williams Realty New Orleans has the ability to structure itself to meet the needs of our local market and clients. This is what we call the “Small Company Within A Large Company” concept and it benefits our clients as much as it does the company and its agents.

Q: What’s your business philosophy? (While there’s no right answer to this question, the response will help you assess what’s important to the real estate practitioner—fast sales, service, etc.—and determine how closely the practitioner’s goals and business emphasis mesh with your own.)

A: I am dedicated to increasing the number of home owners in Orleans Parish and all surrounding parishes and educating my clients on their real estate transactions while promoting their best interest throughout the process. I am also committed to helping sellers obtain the highest marketable price for their property in the least amount of time, while keeping them informed about all of the options that are available to them in the current marketplace.

Q: How will you keep me informed about the progress of my transaction? How frequently? Using what media? (Again, this is not a question with a correct answer, but that one reflects your desires. Do you want updates once a week or don’t want to be bothered unless there’s a hot prospect? Do you prefer phone, e-mail, or a personal visit?)

A: For Sellers: I send out a weekly update via email that includes statistics about how much traffic your property is getting as a result of my marketing plan. See also attached Sellers Marketing Proposal.

For Buyers: I am committed to keeping you informed via your preferred format (phone, email, text).
