The Art if Procrastination. Would you list your home with this guy?

Being a top Waukesha County Wisconsin Real Estate agent takes a huge commitment to one’s clients and customers, It takes an agent that has a plan in place.    2remax 200x150

They worked through the contingencies and objectives. They work hard  and gets the property to a successful closing. One needs major marking and Internet avenues in place to get the property out on in seconds.

I have met agents that when I delivered an offer they literally had said to me “Let me see when I can make some time around my schedule to deal with it” Deal with it? It’s how we as Waukesha County Wisconsin real estate agents make our living. Procrastinating is not a good virtue. It certainly isn’t an art. Hire an agent that always answers their phone when that phone rings and they are available when you need them,

ar129305961789528

One that will do anything to make sure you are happy and you wind up with a great result. I had an agent awhile ago tell me they didn’t have time over the weekend because he had a bunch of personal plans and the offer expired. His logic was he would just counter it. How sad. I promise you I will always be there. I will never procrastinate and I will work hard to achieve nothing less than stellar results for you,

Finding the right Real estate Agent in Waukesha County Wisconsin. Top Commercial Real Estate Brokers (3)

In this installment of our series we will talk about what to look for in selecting a commercial/Investment broker whether you are buying or selling commercial real estate. It’s easy to see a lot of the great buys out there
and there are many parts to the equation in buying or selling commercial real estate. When I sit down with a party that starts to pursue commercial avenues I ask them their needs and wants. I always recommend that they have a good attorney and accountant to talk to. I further ask them whether they are buying or selling how their accountant is going to structure the transaction, how they are going to finance the transaction and if I will be helping them find financing, and if there is anything
that I need to know as far as if they are buying it themselves or as an Entity (Corporation of some kind)

I further would recommend to anyone that is buying or selling Waukesha County commercial real estate that whoever they choose to work with has great experience and how many
commercial transactions they do each year, and have done. It is important to ask about their schooling and learning of commercial real estate. For example; I have had amazing mentors over the years but I also have taken necessary CCIM classes.  The agents networking skills are paramount, and get some numbers of past commercial clients and fellow brokers they have worked with. Experience is key in a commercial relationship. The agent you are working with should be able to execute a APOD ( annual property operating data sheet) and a CFAT (cash
flow after taxes) work sheets to calculate the cash flow, the expenses, and to get a great idea of the beast you are pursuing. Alternative cash flow sheets help as well. Never be afraid to ask for references, what tools they use for marketing (Example www.loopnet.com or www.Xceligent.com), both are good commercial sites that offer much.

Cash flow is always important, but so are Tax shelters and approaches, and the appreciation of a building and the depreciation is also very important. For example if some one were doing a delayed or simultaneous exchange ( a Starker Exchange in reference to IRS section code 1031 ) they would be trying to diminish their capital gains (rules apply) but the depreciation would be added back into the equation which changes the Gain. The bottom line is to feel comfortable with the agent you are working with, and that they are well rounded, experienced, and very knowledgeable in the commercial real estate sector.

Finding the right real estate agent in Waukesha County Wisconsin

The topic today in Tom Braatz, How do I find the right real estate agent in Waukesha County? Series (#1 of 6) is finding the right agent to list your home. There are many real estate agents that are all too ready to list your home. There are a number of thoughts you need to entertain when hiring the right one.Thefirst that comes to mind is the number of years they have been actively selling real estate, and do they sell or have they sold enough real estate to have gained lots of experience. The question is to ask them specific questions. I have put together a report entitled “The 19 Questions you must ask a real estate agent BEFORE you list your home“. In this report are very specific questions that are to be asked to narrow the selection very fast. This saves lots of possible headaches down the road and lends for a great talk.

The next question would be is to ask and to also see a copy of their action plan and market plan that theyuse to get your property to the closing table. Not just an offer, but to the closing table. Make no bones about it; good agents receive many offers on a property and the offer that rolls towards a successful closing has work/terms/conditions and deadlines that ALL need to be addressed before a closing is set and the papers are set for that special day.

Never be afraid to ask for referencesand if possible phone numbers to call the references. Since most successful real estate agents plan on building their business the path to a closing, and the follow up after the closing can often set a tone for future business. Granted, this Industry we know as real estate has some road blocks and every so often there are disgruntle people that we should have not worked with in the first place. So out of fairness remember this is a full time job that requires readily available service.

In addition, do not hesitate to ask about references from cooperating brokers and agents. I have written about it before, and I will say it again, I have the sheer luxury of working with some of the best people in Waukesha County Real Estate in the WaukeshaCounty real estate market. As one of the  Waukesha County real estate agents in this County I can tell you that I have friends and fellow colleagues in my business that I thank everyday. Stay away from brokers that condemn others or like to hear themselves talk; if the people you are about to hire don’t have a great and friendly dispostion to them what is your journey going to bring you to get to the closing table. Feel free to Google finding a waukesha county real estate agent .

One more thought; ask the agent you are about to hire if they have a guarantee. That’s right, a guarantee. For example our guarantee says that if “At any time you are not totally delighted and happy with our service and you want to part ways just ask us to withdrawal the listing and we will be happy to. Provided there is not an offer on the property and it is on it’s way to closing.” This is a proving ground!

There are many more tips I could give you and I welcome a call at 262-377-1459 or an email attom@tombraatz.com so I may be able to help you with them. If you are in Waukesha County and you need to sell your property within the next 90 days and want a exclusive seller package just feel free to call me. If you need to buy within the next 90 days or so we have our work cut out for us; just call  and request the Buyer VIP package. By all means feel free to request the free special report “The 19 Questions you must ask a real estate agent BEFORE you list your home” is a must

Buying that new home? It should start with your pre approval letter with Charlie Johnson with Guarantee Rate

When you travel through Oconomowoc Wisconsin you see yourself with lakes all around you, many vibrant shops and activities going on, and a group of people eager to say hello to you. When you look at an older picture from the past it is almost uncanny how it has not changed. Waukesha County Wisconsin or anywhere in Southeastern Wisconsin starts with A great lender. That lender is Charlie Johnson with Guaranteed Rate

a okauchee lake

As Charlie Johnson puts it himself

“I enjoy doing preapprovals. My job during the preapproval process is to compare a Buyer’s information with the guidelines and ensure they are pursuing the proper financing.

I’ve always been a student of the guidelines and know this knowledge allows my customers to experience an efficient transaction. I can do this with a brief phone call or customers may click the no obligation “apply now” button on my website.

 

Clicking the “apply now” button allows a person to send their information directly to the fannie mae underwriting system. Applicants can obtain credit reports and pre-approvals 24 hours a day.”
