I began my real estate career in January of 1979. At that time, a person started out as a licensed agent and had to be under a Broker for a two year period before taking the Broker’s exam and having their own real estate company. I did exactly that and in the two year period I took the exam and have owned my own company, Pickenbrock Realty, ever since. I incorporated in September of 2014.
Today, it’s a little different. One is first licensed as a Broker Associate and has the same two year restriction before becoming an Employing Broker in order to have their own business.
I have two particular traits that I think are difficult to find today. The first one is honesty, and that’s just the way I conduct my life, in simple honesty.
The second is an unusual amount of experience and knowledge. It’s not just in helping people sell or buy a home, and I have done hundreds of those over the years, but I’ve also helped certain sellers with properties in bad repair or who find themselves in either a poor physical condition, or a bad financial situation, and I knew that the seller would lose a great deal of their equity if they sold their home in that condition. So I’ve helped correct many different types of problems in homes from bathrooms, kitchens, floors, and you name it, I’ve done it.
I didn’t charge a penny for my labor, but I gained a great deal of experience and insight by doing this. Education is expensive no matter how you look at it. The areas that I didn’t do, were ones that require licensed professionals such as electricians, plumbers, heating and air conditioning contractors. I have a number of licensed professionals that I know who are honest, they do good work and don’t charge outrageous prices. I’m glad to share their contact information with you if you don’t already have someone that you trust.
The experience and insight I’ve gained has enabled me to give my clients who are selling their home accurate information on things they can do to help increase the price of their home, like what to correct before it gets in the hands of an inspector. A small repair can either kill the deal or end up costing about 10 times more than necessary.
Regarding my buyer clients, I can point out things that I would have never even noticed without having this experience, and I’m able to give the buyer a great amount of information on how to deal with the situation, especially in the negotiation of the contract.
If this seems good to you, I would be happy to talk with you about your personal situation, whether you are considering selling your home, or you are thinking of purchasing a home. In either case, I look forward in talking with you. Call me direct at 303-519-1182.
