Catherine Thoreson Realtor®
                        & Associates          

DO they provide DIRECT benefits rather than indirect benefits?

DO they know the difference between passive and proactive marketing?

DO they know how to implement effective "target" marketing?

DO they invest in your marketing by:

- hiring decorators to prepare your home for the market?

- completing a video tour for multiple internet locations?

- offering advertising in excess of that provided by their company?

- providing a unique website for your property to increase calls from the ad, sign and mailers?

- providing signs with direct phone numbers so that your calls don’t get lost?

DO they offer an "EASY EXIT" listing so that you are in complete control of your home at all times?

DO they use consumer oriented marketing that has proven results?

DO they know which publications result in the most buyer responses when placing your advertising?

DO they belong to a relocation organization that will provide the best qualified buyers moving to our area?

DO they have a " pricing strategy" that can be explained to bring you the most money?

DO they offer a GUARANTEE?

DO they do a whole lot more than anyone else, or just about the same?

DO they do the same things, but a whole lot better? Can they prove it?


There are many ways to decide, but one of the best is a comparison list. Consider the following:

“Thank you for all of your hard work in our recent real estate transactions. Your diligence and persistence paid off in selling our home. You were also very helpful and detailed in our purchase at the same time. You were able to make both transactions exceptionally smooth. Your work made the whole process that much more enjoyable. We really love our new home!”

                         -Carl and Susan

“I would like to thank you for the great service you provided regarding the sale of our home. Your marketing plan for our home was very impressive. You are very personable and someone we can rely on and trust. We would definitely recommend you as a realtor.”

                          -Chris and Sue
