Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent


Smart Sellers Fare Better With Full Service Realtors

Sellers make two big mistakes when choosing a Realtor if they overlook the need for a full-service Realtor. The first is not realizing a full-service Realtor will negotiate a higher sales price. The second is not realizing a full-service Realtor will save them money. They make more. They save more. That's the bottom line, even though a full-service Realtor might charge 1% more than a discount agent. Sellers are still ahead.


Not only that, but my sellers will tell you the peace of mind my services bring is priceless. Meaning they can't begin to put a price tag on how good it feels not to fret and worry over the transaction. But don't listen to me, listen to what happened with my last seller.
