“It’s never been easier to sell your home. However, we are shocked at how many sellers are leaving tens of thousands of dollars and sometimes six figures on the table by hiring agents who either don’t know how, or aren’t committed to, doing the work necessary to maximize a sale,” reports Linda O’Koniewski, CEO, Leading Edge. “If you want an agent who will squeeze out every dollar, make sure your agent has a plan to get all qualified buyers into a house, and then is savvy enough to negotiate on your behalf to create the best offer. Too many agents are simply messengers, not skilled negotiators who understand how to leverage each offer. Strategies matter, and that is what we specialize in at Leading Edge.”
