A old friend of mines said she was going to use her GOD sister to help her sell her a house. Then I hear this, “What is the difference between seasoned and new? Is there something different.. ?” So of course my eyes get big because that’s like a rookie in professional sports, course there’s a difference. There’s always that learning curve professionals have to endure. There are many differences between a seasoned agent and new agent!
To make it simple I summarized it to her like this, “The difference is experience, less frustration, more knowledge, easier transaction, more money saved for you”. To elaborate on that it’s like this some new agents can be more knowledgeable and convincing than seasoned agents but when choosing any agent you want them to be experienced and efficient in the field of expertise they are assisting their customer or client. Some seasoned agents have the years but do not have the transactions completed either. A good resource would be to get references from them and to check out any and all resources on the internet as well.
New agents bring enthusiasm, energy, and lots of patience to the profession. We all at some point where new agents. So there is nothing wrong with using a new agent. When I sold my first house it was to someone I knew who gave me the opportunity even though she knew that I was new. So sometimes you have people who would rather use a new agent instead of a seasoned agent because some seasoned agents may appear to be too busy for them. (Just a note, I’m NEVER TOO BUSY for referrals)
Seasoned agents bring experience, knowledge, the nack know how to get around many situations which saves time, money, and energy and the connections of all the right people that can make the transaction a rewarding experience rather than a disaster one. No matter who YOU chose, make sure it’s someone whom you are comfortable with in fulfilling the transaction all the way out to the completion of SOLD in YOUR favor.
