Buying or selling a home? Here are the top 5 questions to ask your broker to ensure you’re making the right choice.

1) Local Expertise: How well do you know the local market?

From the first conversation, it should be obvious that your broker has an in-depth understanding of their local market. This doesn’t just mean spouting a few statistics about the average price per square foot in each area. A good broker knows no single metric can give an accurate representation of a home’s value. Your broker should attend open houses weekly, produce their market reports, dig up off-market listings, attend sales meetings, and have frequent conversations with the top brokers in their area. We do all this and more and ensure our clients deeply understand where the market is and how they stack up as buyers or sellers. Information is power in this industry.

2) Marketing Magic: What’s your strategy for selling a home?

Any broker can list your home, put it in the MLS, and advertise in the local paper, but that isn’t enough in today’s market, especially in Aspen where many buyers come from out-of-state and international destinations. Chris’s expert network, Sotheby’s Market Leaders - comprised of the top 43 agents in the nation’s biggest markets, provides unparalleled exposure ensuring your listing gets maximum visibility.
