Once again, the brokers at our sister company Newcastle Square Realty have put up some impressive sales numbers despite the economic challenges of the past few years. Here is a report from NSRA’s Executive Vice President, James Cosgrove.
As the snow piles up and the thermometer drops while the glow from the holidays just passed fades away, we start to evaluate what we did last year and make our plans for this years selling season. It is extremely gratifying as we crunch numbers to see that the work of our Associates made Newcastle Square Realty the top selling agency in all of Lincoln County. Here in our hometown(s) of Damariscotta-Newcastle along with Bristol and South Bristol on the Pemaquid peninsula, NSRA outsold all other agencies combined. So, we know that our approach to selling real estate works and works quite well for our clients on both the Selling and Buying side.
What is it that we do? Well, for our Sellers it all starts with a rigorous examination of a property and a realistic evaluation of its worth in today’s market. Everybody in this business knows of brokers and agencies that are only too willing to “buy” listings by giving potential sellers inflated prices. Or brokers who are simply too timid or not skilled enough at evaluating properties to tell a client what their properties market value really is. We work very hard at making sure our Brokers have their fingers on the pulse of the market at all times and, because we sell so many properties relative to our competitors, we know exactly what Buyers are looking for and what they are willing to pay. For our Buyers, we treat every sale as if they were going to turn around and put that property right back on the market and we advise them accordingly.
Our advertising is directed at places where Buyers go to look when they are searching for property. Why place single picture ads in big city daily papers when the buyers are looking online for slideshows and video? And, due to our success we have a database of Buyer clients just waiting for that perfect fit to come along. While all agencies like to think of themselves as results driven, many seem to feel that the end result is getting a Sellers Listing. We believe in actually selling properties.
More important than anything else we do, and what really sets Newcastle Square Realty apart, is the people who choose to hang their license on our wall. All of our Brokers are full time real estate professionals. No one ever has to wait until they get done working their day job before they can return a call. All of our Brokers have a track record of success. Most importantly, all of our Brokers love what they do and want to be the very best they can be at their chosen profession.
