Why should you pick the “Padre Elite Team” to list your property? We are the #1 team in the South Padre Island area and these are the reasons we think we are the right choice for you:
Feedback & Communication …When your listing is shown, The Padre Elite Team does their best to get feedback from the showing agent. We want you to know when your property is shown and what comments were given. If there was any negative feedback, we want to overcome those issues
Virtual Tour and Pictures …We believe that you need to post as many professional photos as possible in the MLS and online. The Padre Elite Team posts as much information as possible about our listings so we can prompt a buyer to request a showing. We love virtual tours and we will do a 360 degree tour for free on your property. Virtual tours are a great selling tool but a big expense for the REALTOR®. They take a significant amount of time and money to prepare; therefore, many REALTORS® do not offer them.
Pricing. ..During our listing presentation we will provide you with information about sales to real buyers and give you information about current listings (your competition.) Together, we will arrive at a listing price that will sell your property in the least amount of time possible.
Staging …We love helping our sellers with staging their property. Staging makes a definite difference in getting the property sold. We can make de-clutter suggestions as well as re-arrange existing furniture and adjust accessories to improve the presentation. Many buyers are not able to visualize furniture placement if a room is empty. We can virtually stage it if you like, and remove the guesswork for buyers.
Marketing …Over 92% of buyers today have started their research online; therefore, we invest the majority of our advertising budget into Internet Marketing. Your listing will be posted on all pertinent websites.
Representation …The Padre Elite Team believes in representing only one client…you. One team member will not represent both sides of a transaction as we feel it is a conflict of interest.
Negotiations …Because of our years of experience in real estate, we feel our ability to help you in the negotiation process is superior to trying to “wing” it on your own. We are professional “negotiators.” There are many items to negotiate such as price, repairs, closing date, possession, etc.
Critique All Documents …Real Estate in Texas is constantly changing. There are many addenda and notices that must accompany a purchase contract as well as legal requirements of the purchase contract. We go above and beyond with our continuing education to be sure we are up to date on the latest changes. When an offer is presented to you and an agreed upon contract is executed, we confirm the documents are correct and fully executed.
Monitor Your Deal Closely Through Closing …Once we have an executed contract submitted to the title company, The Padre Elite Team monitors the progress of tasks and timelines stipulated by the contract to ensure requirements are met and the process flows smoothly to closing. Action items such as the termination option period deadline, seller’s disclosure, appraisal, inspection, resale certificate, survey, etc., must be completed in accordance with the terms of the contract.
Four + Two for the Price of One …Since there are four licensed agents/broker associates plus two assistants on our team, we are able to provide exceptional service for you. When one of us is tied up, the other one is there to back us up. Our assistant helps us keep the mounds of paperwork and detail in order. You may hear from several of us, Alycen, Gayle, Jules, Laurie, Angie, or Carlos.
Educated & Involved …Our team members have earned numerous designations. GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute), SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist), RSPS(Resort Second Home Specialist), CRS(Certified Residential Specialist), CPN(Certified Professional Negotiator), CLHMS (Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist), ePro, SFR(Short Sale Foreclosure Resource), ABR(Accredited Buyer Representative), TACS(Texas Accredited Commercial Specialist.)
Being involved in our community is important to us. Networking on a local, state, and national level makes a huge difference in keeping us informed about issues in real estate. It benefits us and our clients.
