Establishing Credibility With Sellers
I was on a (successful) listing appointment in Linden Hills last week, when the topic of neighborhood expertise came up (I had it to spare).
It certainly helped that I had handled several recent transactions within a few blocks; used to live less than six blocks south, in the adjacent Fulton neighborhood; knew the details of all the relevant “Active” listings; and even had the scoop on the elementary school down the street and the new restaurant on 50th.
The clincher (or at least one of them)?
I knew the daily special at the local co-op, where I regularly shop (still).
I’d stopped by on the way to the appointment, and bought the turkey meatloaf ($6.99/lb, $3 off the regular $9.99) for my family’s dinner that night.
