I have been selling homes in Halifax Regional Municipality(HRM) (Nova Scotia, Canada) for 28 plus years. I certainly know the market inside and out. We sell homes in and around the Dartmouth area which also includes Halifax, Bedford, Lower Sackville, Cole Harbour, Eastern Passage, Waverley, Mineville, Lake Echo, Porter's Lake. I am very familiar with most of the Halifax Regional Municipality. I have survived long term in this profession, averaging 60 plus homes sales per year, because of the excellent service I provide, my communication skills, and the professionals with whom I work.
Selling real estate is truly not the easy or glamorous job that some people think it is. Realtors must pay serious attention to detail and possess tremendous knowledge because we are dealing with housing components, writing contracts, negotiating, accounting, new construction, area knowledge, wells, septic systems, financing/mortgage details, marketing, advertising, insurance issues and so much more, plus we are on call 7 days a week. That takes serious dedication! Then there’s the issue of living on commission, having no clue what you are going to make at any given moment. That being said, I love my job and have the track record to prove I know what I am doing and I do it well. I am pleased to have a real estate partner Tom Madgett who has learned thru my mentoring and he has the same philosophy as I do. He has worked hard to become a top producing agen. We both believe in treating others as we would want to be treated ourselves!
