I’ll be the first to admit that, with more than 1,000 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?
RE/MAX is “the most widely recognized real estate brand in the world” and “Canadian RE/MAX agents average twice as many transactions…than any others, making them Canada’s most productive agents.”
Backed 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.
Those averages have remained roughly the same for the last several years.
Here’s another fun fact.
Did you know that RE/MAX Niagara employs a 24/7 appointment center? Meaning that, should a buyer or their agent call about your property after hours, there will always (excluding holidays) be a real, live human being available to take their call and schedule a private viewing.
Why choose Brent Jones?
Ah, the big question…why me?
Well, for starters, here are the services I am able to offer for most residential listings (conditions apply):
- For Sale Sign
- 24/7 Appointment Center
- SentriLock Lockbox
- Advertising on MLS
- Professional Photography
- Buyer Agency Compensation
- Drone Shots
- Packing Materials
- Digital Ads (Google and Facebook)
- Email Marketing (1,000+ Local Contacts)
- Open House(s)
- Free Use of Utility Trailer
- Move-out Cleaning
- Print Ads
- Neighborhood Canvassing / Cold Calling
- Also List on TRREB
People often think that realtors drop a sign on your lawn and then wait for the phone to ring.
And, look…maybe some agents do business that way, but not me.
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.
(Swipe left and right above to peruse client feedback.)
By consistently helping buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals, I have been fortunate enough to achieve several sales distinctions from my brokerage:
- Executive Club: 2023 (So Far)
- 100% Club: 2022
- 100% Club: 2021
- 100% Club: 2020
- Rookie of the Year: 2020
- Best Social Media: 2019
- Ones to Watch: 2019
I’ve also had the good fortune to meet a number of my clients simply by…
- …organizing community events and fundraisers around town.
- …purchasing and giving away gift cards to numerous local businesses.
- …hosting a weekly online talk show called The Fort Erie Podcast.
But here’s the thing:
I began this post by mentioning that there are more than 1,000 active realtors in Niagara. The truth is that a lot of realtors have won an award (or several awards) for some achievement or another, and a lot of us get involved in our respective communities.
So, let me leave you with this.
Back in 2014, alongside my beautiful wife, Andréa, and our two dogs, Stirling and Gibson, we relocated from Toronto to Fort Erie.
We could’ve moved just about anywhere, but we chose right here.
In 2022, we welcomed our first child into the world: a daughter named Ellie.
I know that Ellie is kinda eyeing you suspiciously in the photo above, but she likes you…really, she does! She told me so. 😉
Today, my family calls 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.
- And 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.
I’ll schedule a time to come out and provide you with a free opinion of value.
I’ll also review with you how we can get your home sold fast and for top dollar.
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.
