Jeff Fisher of remax fine properties. it takes more than just a license to sell and buy homes in phoenix.
If you think of the housing market in the Phoenix area you know that it is vast and complex. With all of the different parts of town you could choose to live and the dozens upon dozens of design styles to choose from you could literally lose your mind while trying to decide.
On the flip side of that is choosing a realtor to help find what’s right for you and to help guide you in the home buying process. If you want this process to be as painless as possible then you know that need to find someone who knowledge of valley and of the many rules and regulations that go along with it.
One name that stands out above the others is Jeff Fisher of RE/MAX Fine Properties. He specializes in great properties for buyers and sellers. Before Jeff decided to become a Realtor he worked for the City of Scottsdale As the Director of the Planning and Zoning department. Because of this he knows Scottsdale like few others can imagine.
After his 20+ years in working for the city he then went to work in the banking industry at First National Bank of AZ working directly for the President doing residential loan due diligence.
Being armed with all of the many years of combined experience in both of these two industries he knew could well on his own as Realtor and working for himself.
Being a Realtor isn’t an easy thing to start out in if you don’t have a large immediate circle of friends and family and business relationships to draw from. Sure anyone can go get their license and hang their name somewhere but can they actually sell? Jeff knew that he had the skills and background relationships to hit the ground running and he did just that. He used his circle of influence to be able to talk to seasoned pros and try to gain some insight but even then he still had people that would hold back key pointers because they didn’t like having him as competition. They knew his background and they knew he could become a force, which he has done over the years.
He states that even after all his years as a Realtor it is easy to lose sight if you don’t keep engaged in the market and to what is trending and what the clientele is looking for. Client engagement is probably the number one factor in being at the forefront of this industry. Knowing the neighborhoods and the surrounding communities is also key to helping people find the home they are looking for.
On the flip side “working with sellers can sometimes be a challenge as well” he said. He says that occasionally there are sellers that don’t want to modernize their properties before putting them on the market. He has had sellers that want top of the market value for their homes but have outdated styles that won’t fetch those prices without an update and end up staying on the market for years because they won’t listen to what the professional has to say. “It’s like going to a doctor or a lawyer and taking his advise.” Why wouldn’t you take the advice of an industry professional when dealing with probably the single largest asset that most people will ever own.” This goes back to knowing your market and what is going to sell and what won’t.
So why would a client choose Jeff over all of the many choices in Realtors in the valley? His municipality and banking experience for one are enough to set him apart but also his philosophy in “Properties Promoted Properly”. He relies heavily on social media to help his buyers and sellers to get the job done. Gone are the days of posting door knockers and posting ads in newspapers. If you are not taking advantage of the free use of these platforms then you are not going to be engaged and you are going to miss out on much what can be done for your clients. With the millennial generation beginning to take over the market, you have to be in their wheelhouse and that done through social media.
When asked what he does differently at his open houses aside from the social media marketing Jeff says the uses doughnuts. Who can refuse a quality doughnut every now and then?
With start of the new year and looking into the future, Jeff would like to grow by 50% with both buyers and sellers and if the market projections for the upcoming year are any indicator he should be able to do just that. Already the current inventory is low so it’s a sellers market making it very advantageous to have a home on the market right now.
You can find many people here in town with real estate license but won’t find many with the background, experience and credentials that you will find in Jeff Fisher With RE/MAX Fine Properties . With a proven track record and a finger on pulse of the market you can’t go wrong no matter what part of the valley you are interested in.
