Quest for Gold

Wednesday 04 Apr 2018

Property is a big deal.  For most of us buying and selling a home is a life changing decision that is the culmination of a huge amount of planning, work and effort. It’s our personal Commonwealth Games ‘quest for gold’ moment, so makes sense that it’s not something you do without the right back-up and support team. 

For most athletes participating at the Gold Coast over the next couple of weeks it will be the biggest moment of their sporting career. Every step will have been planned, analysed and practiced. It will all be carefully directed by expert coaches, nutritionists and psychologists and in the end it can all come down to minutes, perhaps even seconds.

And in the end, even with all the training and planning and preparation the result can all come down to what happens on the day.  So it is with selling or buying a property. 

Choosing the right team is vital. The best agent is one with the right combination of experience and hunger.  An agent who knows the system but takes nothing for granted, leaving no option unexplored.

Then you need the truth.  It might be tempting to choose an agent that tells you only what you want to hear.  Surely there is no value in an athlete being told by an over-eager coach that they are the fastest if it isn’t the truth. 

The best coach will provide a realistic assessment of their athlete, provide options to improve the outcome and then work tirelessly and exhaust every opportunity with the motivation that the result achieved will be above expectations.  So it is with a real estate agent providing an assessment on the potential sale price of a property.  Consider the price evaluation provided by an agent with clarity and reality rather than wishful thinking.  

Morton agents consider every new listing as a ‘quest for gold’ opportunity.  Our team understand this may be their client’s one shot for property gold so like the best coaches in the business they put the hard work in to achieve the best possible outcome on the day.
