The Divorce Realtor ® You Select Is Important

When going through a divorce and selling real estate you are going to want to work with a Realtor that has exceptional communication skills.

Given that there could be two parties that might not be getting along that well anymore, you are going to want to work with someone who understands the nature of divorce and all the emotional baggage that comes with this stressful life event. The Realtor you choose to work with is going to have a certain level of patience, as all communications could be repeated multiple times.

The Realtor you decide to work with is a process that should be worked on together. As an agent who has worked with numerous divorcing couples over my 15 years  in the business, I have found that if one party selects the Realtor the other feels slighted. Human nature kicks in and the natural instinct is to feel that the Realtor is going to play favorites because of an established relationship with one party.

When I am hired to represent a divorcing couple I want them both to be present for any listing interviews that take place. I want them to understand that I represent both of them equally. There is no favoritism involved. My number one priority is to sell the home for the most money possible in a reasonable amount of time with the least amount of headaches.

Creating an atmosphere of trust where either party can call me at anytime is very important. Getting a divorce is stressful enough as it is. Adding a home sale on top of it can make you feel like your life is totally upside down. Striving to make the home sale process go as smoothly as possible is always one of my goals.

While going through a divorce brings with a different set of challenges, the real estate agent you should work with should not only have some experience with divorce but also a strong track record of success. When selling a home and getting divorced selecting a Realtor is an incredibly important decision yet so many sellers do not take the time necessary to really 

make a sound business decision.  Being in the business as long as I have it still puzzles me how lackadaisical some people can be with choosing a Realtor.

You would think that selling ones largest asset would bring a determination to choose one of the best agents around. Often times this is not the case and no research is done in order to make the best possible selection. Divorce and selling a home at the same time is tricky business. Make sure you are well prepared for this endeavor.
