Jason Johnson - REALTOR ®
Yes, every Realtor says this, but the client really is the most important part of every transaction for me. Before I became a Realtor myself, I had several bad experiences with agents and that’s what I don’t want to happen for you. I used to be an investor, flipping and renting property, so I have hired many real estate agents in the past and I learned what not to do. Feel free to ask me about funny stories sometime.
That’s why, when you list your home with me, I have an easy exit listing. If you’re not satisfied with my work or think I am not doing enough to get your home sold, you can fire me at any time. Same goes for buyers. I never make you sign an exclusive buyer broker agreement. I want you to be so happy with me, you will never want to use anyone else again. Before becoming a Realtor, I had to pay $500 to an agent that did nothing to sell my house just so I could re-list it with someone else that could. To me that was just plan robbery and I don’t want it to happen to you.
I got my license in 2007 when the market tanked. Anyone can get into real estate when it’s going good, but I like a challenge, so I got in when the market dropped 50% and there was nothing but foreclosures and banks that did not want to do short sales. I loved this, because, unlike other agents, I learned the hard way to sell houses. Not like in 2005 when you put a sign in the front yard and waited to get 10 offers.
I’ve worked for Century 21, Keller Williams and Re/Max to learn what they all do best and combine it into my own real estate career. I would classify myself as a go getter, that’s why I want to earn your business for life. I’ve worked on large REO teams selling 300+ homes a year, and have done many short sales negotiations for myself and other agents. I’m a certified distressed property expert and a certified negotiation expert. I’ve also won the 2012, 2013 and 2014 Sacramento Magazine 5 star real estate award. Fewer than four percent of the 15,200 Sacramento area residents holding real estate licenses were selected.
The number one complaint about real estate agents is lack of communication. That’s why I promise to call you at least once a week with an update, even if there is none to give. I’ll also text, email and Facebook you as well to keep you in the loop. You will also have access to a private webpage that will keep all your transaction information for you to look up at any time. You will have everything at your fingertips, including paperwork you signed, contact information for the title company, home and pest inspections, and any other vendor involved in the transaction. Plus it keeps notes of everything happening in your transaction updated on almost a daily basis.
I know you have many choices when choosing a Realtor. In fact you probably get a weekly flier on your front door with the husband and wife team looking to sell your house now. While I’m sure they probably do a great job, I want to do a better job for you.
