Why Do I Personally Call Every Buyer?

Written by Joel Gerber. Posted in Real Estate



Purchasing a home is a BIG deal! For most individuals it will be the largest purchase of their lives. As a closing attorney, I take being a part of such a significant life event very seriously. So why do I call every buyer on every closing? There are actually several reasons.

First, there is nothing more important than speaking with a buyer early in the process to introduce myself and to answer any questions he or she may have. Learning that the purchaser is a first-time homebuyer, buying a second home or moving from another state helps me understand that buyer’s particular situation on the front end of the transaction. I also provide the buyer my cell phone number so they feel comfortable calling me anytime throughout the process. By speaking with the buyer prior to the closing I truly believe that it reduces the general anxiety that a buyer normally feels attending a closing. When I walk in the closing room both the buyer and myself know that we have spoken and are genuinely excited about finally meeting in person for the first time.

Joel’s Listing Agent Checklist

Written by Joel Gerber. Posted in Real Estate



In 2017, at the request of a number of selling agents, I drafted Joel’s Selling Agent Checklist. I believe it was well received by all. At that time it was my intention to also draft a listing agent checklist. Well . . . approximately two years later I have finally completed that checklist. It was true in 2017, and still true today, that a single real estate transaction has so many moving parts and no one closing is the same. One of the single most important attributes of a successful Realtor is organization. While many of you have certain procedures in place to ensure you are organized, I wanted to offer a new tool for you to use.
