Agents who command top dollar are those who believe their business practice supports it. They are generally the agents who believe in quality over quantity. They use professional marketing materials, employ the latest technology and maintain systems that consistently work, over and over. They negotiate hard, work hard for their clients and earn every dime. They never compromise on service to the client, and their reputation speaks volumes.
If you're wondering what sets a full-service agent apart from others, interview a few and ask to see their performance stats, specifically the list-price to sales-price ratios. You will probably see that full-service agents sport higher ratios, and higher ratios equate to more money for their sellers.
