I’ll be the first to admit that, with more than 1,600 active realtors in Niagara Region, you could throw a rock in just about any direction and hit one of us.
So, if you’re thinking of selling your home, why should you choose me, Brent Jones, to list it?
If you’ll indulge me, I’d like to answer that very question for you:
First, let’s start by exploring…
Why choose RE/MAX?
Well, when you think of real estate, which company first comes to mind?
Might it be the one with the red, white, and blue balloon?
Taken directly from our corporate website, RE/MAX is “the most widely recognized real estate brand in the world.” In fact, “Canadian RE/MAX agents average twice as many transactions…than any others, making them Canada’s most productive agents.”
If you’ve ever seen my truck rolling around town…
…you’ve probably noticed these magnets on its doors.
Backed up by recent data, “Nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX.”
Why choose RE/MAX Niagara?
More specifically, I am employed by RE/MAX Niagara Realty Ltd., Brokerage. That’s a mouthful, right? I’ll refer to my brokerage as RE/MAX Niagara for the remainder of this article. Promise.
RE/MAX Niagara agents close almost double the dollar volume of our nearest competitors.
Same goes when reviewing unit sales.
Agents working with RE/MAX Niagara were responsible for, on average, 17.95 transactions in 2018, whereas the typical agent in this area was responsible for only 4.56 (roughly one quarter).
That’s pretty cool, right?
Here’s another fun fact.
Did you know that RE/MAX Niagara employs a 24/7 answering service? Meaning that, should someone call about your home after hours, there will always (excluding holidays) be a real, live human being available to take their call and schedule a viewing.
Why choose the Rosettani Real Estate Group?
Within my brokerage, I am a member of the Rosettani Real Estate Group. Captained by Ray Rosettani, a name synonymous with excellence in real estate, our team consists of five full-time realtors and one full-time administrative assistant.
That’s right. You’re not just hiring me as your agent. You’re getting an entire team.
More specifically, you’ll be working with me as your primary point of contact, Holly Mackinnon (Johnston) will assist you on the administrative side of things, and Ray Rosettani will lend his experience, contacts, and guidance as needed.
You may already be familiar with us.
Maybe you’ve seen our newspaper ads.
Maybe you’ve even received a piece of direct mail from me or my team, delivered right to your front door.
Listing with the Rosettani Real Estate Group means that your home will receive the exposure it deserves, which includes being prominently featured on our expansive network of partner websites.
Through a series of (not inexpensive) digital display ads and targeted audience ads, our team receives thousands of monthly internet impressions.
Why choose Brent Jones?
Ah, the big question…why me?
Well, I’ve often said that a career in real estate reminds me of this quote:
You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.
Real estate is a results-focused, performance-driven business, and choosing to work with the right realtor makes all the difference.
To me, a career in real estate means that I only succeed when my clients succeed.
Put another way, your success is my success.
Of course, “success” could mean any number of things.
For example, in recent history…
Then again, I began this post by mentioning that there are more than 1,600 active realtors in Niagara. The truth is that a lot of us have won an award (or several awards) for some achievement or another.
I don’t say that to be dismissive of realtors’ accomplishments, including my own…just that there’s more to choosing the right realtor than taking inventory of his or her milestones and trophies.
For instance, please consider this:
Odds are fair to good that you stumbled upon this post by clicking on a Facebook ad.
In fact, you’ve probably seen other ads of mine before. That’s because I spend a small fortune on digital marketing every month.
For instance, I regularly run Facebook ads to promote new listings and open houses.
You’ve likely seen social media posts for some of the homes I’ve sold, too.
Perhaps you’ve seen ads (both online and around town) for various community events I’ve organized.
I learned a long time ago that people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.
That’s why my top priority is always to put people first.
To care not just about the dollars and cents of each real estate transaction, but to care about the human beings involved, as well.
And, just as important, to care about (and engage with) the communities we call home from Fort Erie to Port Colborne and everywhere in between.
It’s been my experience that, when you take care of your community, your community takes care of you, too.
One way I like to regularly contribute to Greater Fort Erie is by producing and hosting a weekly, internet-based show called The Fort Erie Podcast.
Have you listened to it before?
Hundreds of local listeners tune in each week for new bite-sized episodes (under fifteen minutes), highlighting upcoming community events, local news, and interviews with business and community leaders.
Each episode also contains a segment highlighting hot new local listings.
List with me and I will be sure to highlight your property on the show, too.
Aside from featuring (interviewing) small business owners on The Fort Erie Podcast, I also like to support local (in both Fort Erie and Port Colborne) by purchasing restaurant gift cards and giving them away to my email subscribers.
At some point, you may have entered one of my gift card giveaways and now you get regular email updates from me.
My mailing list is more than 1,000 email addresses strong and is strictly comprised of local subscribers.
What does that mean?
Well, when I list your home, my entire email database will be notified that your property has hit the market. Each subscriber will receive a personal invitation from me to book a viewing or to tell a friend about it.
And more potential buyers looking at (or hearing about) your property means more viewings booked, more offers coming in, a faster sale, and a better final selling price.
You don’t have to take my word for it, of course. Have a peek at what clients say about working with me:
Brent has been nothing short of amazing during this exciting time…our home had an offer which we accepted the first day our listing was up. We would recommend [him] to anyone buying or selling a home!
Brent had my house sold in one week and…went above and beyond to help with anything that I needed. He did such a great job of promoting my property and communicating with me every step of the way. I would recommend him 100 times over. He was a pleasure to work with and by far the best realtor I’ve had.
Thank you very much, Brent, for everything you have done for us. You have gone above and beyond anything a normal real estate agent would do. I really appreciate the way you…looked out for [my mother’s] house and her interests. Many, many thanks! You’re the best!
Brent helped us sell our home in less than a week. Would recommend him. He is awesome!
Brent is an excellent realtor. He is very knowledgeable in both selling and purchasing. He made the whole process stress-free and easy. Everything that came up he dealt with immediately. He was always available to answer questions before, during, and even after we sold and purchased our new home. He is also very active in the community, doing anything he can to help the community. Thank you, Brent, for all of your hard work.
I cannot rave enough about working with Brent. He’s the most self-motivated, hard-working realtor I’ve ever worked with and…bringing on Brent to sell your home is like hiring an experienced marketing agency. He’s an active advocate that keeps you in the loop with regular texts, emails, educational reports and more. Brent listened to me, shared frank and honest feedback with me, and worked for me to get my house sold. I could not be happier that I chose Brent and gladly recommend him to everyone I know.
Lastly, let me leave you with this.
We could’ve moved just about anywhere, but we chose right here.
Today, my wife and I call Ridgeway home, and I proudly serve buyers and sellers from Fort Erie, Ridgeway, Crystal Beach, Sherkston, Port Colborne, and Stevensville.
Look, I don’t drive a fancy car.
I don’t own a Rolex or Ray-Bans.
I don’t show properties wearing a three-piece suit, either, despite how glamorous a career in real estate is often made to look on HGTV.
I’m just a down-to-earth, honest, hardworking, small-town realtor, and I’m eager to deliver results for you and your family.
So, if you’re ready to get started, call (or text) me at 905-626-8826, or simply click the big red button below:
I’ll schedule a time to come out and provide you with a free opinion of value. As in, what I realistically think we can list and sell your home for.
I’ll also review with you the three Ps of getting your home sold fast.
If you’re satisfied, all I’ll need is a few signatures and we’ll be off to the races.
Here’s to your unlimited success, dear homeowner. I look forward to connecting with you soon.
