Personal, Straightforward, Realistic and Honest
“My first meeting with Grace Sergio came about 11 years ago. My Husband and I were attempting to sell our home by owner. We felt by listing by owner, we could easily manage the task and save the realtors fee’s associated with listing thru a Licensed Real Estate Agent. For over a month of this “by owner” attempt, what trickled thru our home were unapproved, unscreened lookers, thinking back, as I write this, it’s shocking to think that we had not even considered that our personal safety or our home security could be compromised by allowing these strangers into our home, and we hadn’t even considered who would represent us or how we would manage the process if we had received an offer.
The day Grace had called and asked to “just meet” with us, she had made it very clear that her intentions were to introduce herself and go over our selling plan, she guaranteed me no pressure to list with her. I agreed that Grace could come by and present her sales pitch, but I was adamant to her that I WAS NOT interested in listing with her as I had friends and a distant family member who were realtors, I had also believed that our house would sell quickly without the assistance of a licensed realtor~(quite honestly, I had intended to hypnotize Grace and pick her mind to learn her selling technique which I would later apply to my “By Owner” listing)
After that first meeting with Grace, It was clear that Grace & the Sergio & Banks team was going to do and be more than just “a realtor” and I was shocked at how I instantly connected with her professionalism, I also quickly learned how personal, straightforward, realistic and honest Grace was.
By the time Grace had left our home, the person who was adamant about not listing with a realtor had agreed to list with Grace and the Sergio and Banks team. Within a week, we had not just an offer,~we had an offer from a buyer that was pre-screened and pre-approved~someone that was as serious about buying our home as we were serious about selling it.
I have always appreciated the hands on approach that Grace and her amazing team gave not only to us personally, but to our real estate deal from start to finish and for many years after! And now, with over eleven years passing, Grace has become more than my realtor, our relationship has flourished into a beautiful friendship and this is because Grace has always managed to stay in touch on a regular basis ~ no matter how busy she gets making the world a better place ~ one home at a time!”
Peace & Love;
