The Poltrock Team Rates A+

The Poltrock Team was recommended to me by a local business here in Murphy, NC when I mentioned I was looking for a home. I liked my first impression of The Poltrock Team at ReMax so I decided to use them as my real estate agency. Agent, Donna Srabian, worked with me to find a home and basically knew exactly what I wanted. She gave me helpful tips on financing and insurance companies, too. Everyone at The Poltrock Team are A+ employees from the receptionist to the agents. Thanks to all and a special thank you to Donna Srabian for her patience and great help during this transaction.

We bought Mountain View Land in Cherokee Mountain Estates in Murphy NC with REMAX

Since I was a local Realtor here in Murphy, NC, I’ve had experience with lots of real estate agents here. When I decided to buy a piece of mountain view land here in Murphy, The Poltrock Team was my only choice! Their local advertising and John’s “can do” attitude makes them amazing to work with!

For Sale By Owner (FSBO) Works in Murphy NC and in the United States!

Consumers – there’s something you’ll never hear from most real estate agents. Selling For Sale By Owner Works! Did you know that it works only 20% of the time? You can sell your property on your own and be successful, but the 80/20 rule is stacked against you. Regardless of whether its in my town of Murphy, North Carolina or the heart Washington state, 80% of sellers are unable to successfully sell their home.

Why do you ask? Think of your personal shopping experiences. Think about your largest investments. When you bought an engagement ring, where did you buy it? Where do you have your 401(k) or IRA? Did you buy your ring at a jeweler? Does a well recognized stock brokerage firm keep safeguard over your retirement portfolio? Most of you reading this will agree you work with professionals when looking to make a large purchase or investment. Some of you won’t. Either way, it is the difference between shopping at the Mall and shopping at the Flea Market.

National Association of Realtors (NAR) Statistics show 90% of buyers work with an agent. That’s a lot of buyers. The others look FSBO because they’re looking to buy cheap just like you would look on eBay. They don’t go to FSBOs to spend top dollar because they want to save money just like they would at the flea market! You should want quality buyers who are willing to go to the jeweler to find the perfect diamond. With a Realtor, you won’t have to worry about marketing, signage, market statistics, deed preferences, contracts – any of that.

For Sale By Owner does work. You must ask yourself – do I want top dollar? Do I want to sell as quickly as possible? Do I want help from someone who knows the tricks of the trade? If the answer is yes, find a qualified Realtor. I’d be happy to refer you to a great agent in your area if you don’t know one.

Now ask, Do I want to give someone a good deal? Sell cheaply? Go through all the marketing process? Price my home by what the neighbor says he sold it for? Hope the buyer who might come up doesn’t walk because there’s nothing to hold him? If you answer yes to that, try to sell your home yourself. Try it for a while, but when you see a poker player, ask him or her if they’d go all in on a 20% chance.
