Entrusting the marketing and eventual sale of your home to a Realtor® in the Quad Cities can be a big decision. So what makes one Realtor® better than the next? Is it because they are your cousin? Is it because you went to school with them? Is it because you drive past their billboard on a daily basis? Although I hear these reasons frequently, it should not be your sole factor for choosing a Realtor®.
Since selling your home can be a life changing decision it is in your best interest to work with a Realtor® who has a great track record of selling homes in the Quad Cities market. Since most agents don’t voluntarily offer up their personal statistics – the ones in which I am about to share with you – you need to ask. And if they don’t know them, they either don’t care what they are or they are so poor that the Realtor® simply doesn’t want to share them.
For most sellers, the equity they have in their current home will be used for a down payment on a new one. Part of my job as your Iowa Quad Cities Realtor® is to make sure you have as much money for your next down payment as possible. To illustrate this I am including a few key personal statistics taken directly from the Quad City Board of Realtors® Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

I feel that my professional selling statistics speak volumes for what type of a sellers agent I am. Since choosing the right Realtor® in the Quad Cities is so important I hope that you will seriously consider myself for the job.
* You may have noticed I included two numbers when describing my average list-to-sales price statistics. The reason I have done this is because residential lot sales in Scott county have been such a big part of my business as I am currently ranked within the top 1% of all Quad City Realtors for lot and land sales since 2008. Many of the lots in which I have sold were bank owned and in most cases greatly reduced from the original asking price. Therefore, they bring down my selling price and my list-to-sales price ratios across all fields. Because my primary focus is still single family homes I simply wanted to give you an idea of what the actual numbers were with lot sales and without.
