Most people think about the agent they choose to work with, which is important, as they will be guiding you through this process that can be complex and emotional. The company the agent works for will determine the services and exposure your home will receive. This is a critical decision and several factors need to be looked at when choosing a company. Resort real estate is different from selling a home in the suburbs and more extensive resources are needed to achieve the best sale value. Your buyer can be coming from anywhere in the world!
A full-service, convenient office provides a team that supports the agent and client throughout the transaction. This starts with an environment where a client can comfortably discuss the market, offers and responses. Documents can be dropped off, copied and forwarded. Our office at the Whistler Real Estate is open seven days a week, year-round and fully staffed with reception, conveyance and marketing. The hands-on location makes for smooth handling of transaction files. We close Christmas Day, New Year and Ironman otherwise we're open for business.
Does the company simply rely on MLS or do they have a unique, custom website? Does the corporate website come up the top three after paid ads consistently? High Google ranking is key for attracting the most buyers. The Whistler Real Estate Company has a custom site that allows featuring unique resort information with a custom chat option. When I come into work in the morning, there are often chat conversations to follow up on. Whistler's worldwide purchaser's shop 24 hours a day.
Online information is always the most up to date but in the resort, many people like to take home a magazine for browsing. We publish two magazines and two guides twice a year.
