When you begin interviewing REALTORS®, it is absolutely critical that you ask what kind of marketing services that they offer as all real estate agents are not alike in what they offer.

Will they...

Place a "For Sale" sign in your yard?
Probably, don't we all?
Place your property on the multiple listing service?
Probably, don't we all?
Advertise your home in the local newspaper?
Possibly, not all agents or real estate companies advertise in the local newspaper. Craft & Vish does - every week until your home sells.
Advertise your home in the Harmon Homes Magazine?
Possibly, not all agents or real estate companies advertise in the Harmon Homes Magazine. Craft & Vish does - every issue until your home sells.
Advertise your home on the Internet?
Possibly, the Multiple Listing Service automatically places your home on the Internet. Craft & Vish goes a step further. Not only will your home be placed on LBAR.com and Realtor.com , it will also be placed on Movingtolexington.com and its sister sites, with the web site address placed on the yard sign and in all advertising, allowing the consumer to go directly to your property. This is a definite advantage to you, the seller, as it gives the potential buyer quick information in a format that spotlights your home. The buyer doesn't have to search through a large number of homes in order to find yours possibly becoming distracted or even interested in another property he or she may find while searching.
Offer Virtual Tours on all Properties?
Virtual tours can be an effective marketing tool as it allows buyers to virtually "walk through" a home. Craft and Vish does - We have invested in the technology and software to enable us one, two or ten virtual images all at no additional expense to you.
Is your agent a member of the "Million Dollar Club" and do they send a direct mail piece introducing your home to Central Kentucky's Top Producers?
Probably not. Statistics show that in the past the top 20% of agents sold 80% of the homes. This has changed. Updated statistics show that 10% of agents sell 90% of the homes! Amazing, isn't it? List with a winner. Not only are we in the top 10% - we make sure the other top agents know about your property.
Will your agent send a mailing to everyone in your neighborhood announcing that your home is For Sale?
Probably not .Craft & Vish does - we will send a full color postcard to everyone in your neighborhood notifying them that your home is for sale. Is this a good marketing tool? Absolutely! Many neighbors are aware of friends, relatives, co-workers or acquaintances that would like to live in your neighborhood. Referrals are the best source of potential buyers
Will your agent hold an open house?
Possibly. Craft & Vish does - Open Houses are a great source of prospects. Just make sure your agent is focused on selling your home and not just looking for prospects to possibly sell elsewhere. When we hold an Open House - our number one goal is to sell your home.
Has your agent been selling real estate in Central Kentucky for at least 5 years?
This is a very important question to ask. Statistics show that the average "life expectancy" of a Realtor® is 6 months! Remember, KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, it doesn't matter how enthusiastic a new agent is - you can't afford to have someone practicing on your home or learning the ropes at your expense. Judy has had her real estate license since 1985 and her broker's license since 1987. Scott has many years of banking industry experience behind him that will surely be invaluable!
How do you track and obtain feedback for agents who show my home?
Every seller is anxious to find out what the prospective buyers and their agents are saying about their home. Milestone Realty Consultants has a unique system in place that takes care of this. All appointments are scheduled through our office and the agent is contacted within 24 hours to obtain feedback. Once the feedback is given, we place it in the computer system and generate a "feedback report". We then let you know what was said and mail you the report for your information. This allows us to make adjustments as needed to make your home more marketable.
Are you a Part-Time of Full-time REALTOR®?
Please think long and hard before listing your home on the market with an agent who is not full-time and experienced. Milestone Realty Consultants only accepts agents who are full-time. We work hard and depend on sales for our income - this is our profession! This is an advantage to you, the seller, in that we are constantly searching the market to find homes for our buyers. Your home is important not only to me, as your listing agent, but to all the agents at Milestone Realty Consultants.
How accessible are you?
This is a biggie! Isn't it frustrating to always get a recorder or voice mail? Craft & Vish have harnessed technology to keep us accessible. In addition to Cellular phones, we have immediate notification of voice mails, emails and facsimiles. Should we be with a client when you call we will be notified instantly and respond to your call, email or fax at our first opportunity. We strive to respond to all communications within two hours! Usually much much sooner.
