The Ellis Team marketing sells listings for top dollar and fast. This past week we closed on a $525,000 listing that sold for $536,200, $11,200 above asking price. Some of the showing agents felt it was overpriced and we would never get that for the home. They were wrong, and had we listened it would have cost the seller money.
Ellis Team marketing sells homes for more money. How is that possible? That is an excellent question, and one we get regularly. While we cannot share all the answers in a short article like this, we can cover some highlights. First, we do not stand back and expect agents in the MLS to sell your home. We proactively market it to a proven bank of buyers we market to. Secondly, we target and attract new buyers each week through aggressive online and print advertising across multiple mediums.
Additionally, we have a team of buyer agents and inside sales associates calling buyers specifically for our listings. When the Ellis Team takes a new listing, we may already have the buyer in our data bank. We use advanced marketing and artificial intelligence to build this data bank and it is paying off for our sellers.
A single cyber-attack can cost you your business. Data from the National Cyber Security Alliance shows that 60 percent of small and mid-sized business close after 6 months following an attack. This is why investing in the services like Sapphire that handles cyber security for business is a must-have investment.
Are We Too Busy
Some sellers are reluctant to list with a successful team because they wonder if they will get lost in the shuffle and not be a priority. Let me address that issue as well, as there are certain advantages of working with a team.
We are not too busy. In fact, we have sold almost our entire inventory. We were not too busy for them when we had inventory, and we are certainly not too busy now that we don’t. Our team was built for scale. Our advanced marketing costs a lot of money and was designed to bring in lots of buyers, not just one. It would be a waste not having seller’s properties to market to this valuable group.
The Ellis Team has a full-time listing manager and marketing manager to assist us. Having experts on our team allows us to provide a higher level of service than single agents can provide. Our team of specialists sole goal is to get your home sold for top dollar.
Top Dollar Realtors
Sande and Brett Ellis have a reputation for getting homes sold for top dollar. There is a saying “What you focus on expands.” Brett and Sande have focused on top dollar our entire career, and that’s probably why we’ve been known around town as “Top Dollar Realtors.”
Any Realtor can give a home away. Giving a home away is easy. Low price sells anything, from homes to cars to electronics. Getting top dollar requires spending money on advertising and acquiring marketing expertise. It is not something you can learn in a day, week, or year. How you respond to questions matters as well. Learning the sales process and mastering marketing techniques are time tested and work in today’s digital society.
The Ellis Team works with the best of the best technology partners. Other Realtors often call us and ask how we do it, and we are happy to share our story. Most will not do it because it costs money, but for those that do they see results like our team does.
