2013 Five Star Real Estate Agent Program

The Five Star Real Estate Agent Program is designed to identify real estate agents in a given market who satisfy objective criteria that are associated with providing quality services to clients.Award candidates are identified through nominations received by consumers. To receive the Five Star Real Estate Agent award, a real estate agent must satisfy five objective eligibility and evaluation criteria that are associated with real estate agents who provide quality services to their clients. The award process is conducted annually in each market.Recent homebuyers (all area residents who purchased a home over $100,000 – $200,000 within an eight to 36-month period, depending on the market size) are asked to evaluate real estate agents with whom they have worked and evaluate them based upon ten criteria. Recent homebuyers may evaluate up to two real estate agents in order to measure the experience associated with the purchase and sale side of a move. Self-nominations are not accepted.In order to be named a Five Star Real Estate Agent, an individual must hold a current real estate license and be in good standing. The final list of Five Star Real Estate Agents includes less than 7% of the real estate agents in a market.

You’ve heard the three most important factors in real estate–location, location, location! While it’s true that where your home is located is of course critical to determining value, there are two other factors you CAN control to help you get the most for your property: PRICE and PRESENTATION.

PRICE

So many people have cost themselves THOUSANDS with a faulty pricing strategy. In fact, we have helped many people who tried to sell on their own–For Sale By Owner, or FSBO–after they did not get their price and the home languished on the market. The market and pricing are fluid, and everyday, things are changing. Part of the value THE TRUGMAN TEAM brings to our clients is to continually assess the competitive picture. The insight we provide to our clients helps them optimally price their homes to attract showings and offers.

PRESENTATION

We utilize the services of a professional designer and stager to help our clients who are listing their home for sale to present what the home offers in the best possible light. The way a home appears should change immediately once the owner switches from living in the house to putting the house on the market. In other words, the home should switch from reflecting how the owners live, to how someone would imagine themselves living in this home!

As a professional team of realtors, we put these concepts into action, based on our experience and practiced eye in viewing the Rockland real estate market.
