Becoming A Pearson Agent

teamWhether you are new to the real estate field or are a seasoned a gent, there are many good reasons to talk to us about being your broker.  Some of those reasons are:

Honesty.  We pride ourselves on treating our agents and clients with honesty.  We take our ethical responsibilities seriously and believe that we can be successful and engage in honest dealings at the same time.

Agent Contracts.  Our contracts are drafted in a straightforward, easy-to-read and understand, manner.  There are not reams of fine print and restrictions that make it difficult for our agents to function under a sea of rules and regulations.  And there certainly aren’t any “gotchas” or hidden fees in our contracts, like “desk fees” or “technology fees”.

Our Word.  When we make a deal with our agents we don’t go back and rework it again and again to try to gain some advantage.  We are quite aware of this practice with some of the other brokerages.  Pearson believes that a broken promise to agents ruins the trust that agents must have with their broker.

Opportunity.  Pearson Realty offers myriad lines of business, including residential and commercial sales, leasing and management.  We are able to offer these lines of business because we have the experience and the legal resources to perform professionally, regardless of the setting.

Mentoring.  For new agents, we are both able and willing to provide the information and support that new agents need to be successful.  Our comprehensive written materials provide a step-by-step approach to real estate.  Our commercial team is not an exclusive club and seasoned agents are encouraged to expand beyond residential sales, to become equally proficient in commercial sales and leasing.

Counsel.  Pearson Realty uses in-house counsel to assist in the variety of contract issues which can arise.  You no longer have to worry about whether you are saying or writing the correct thing within contracts.  We provide the tools necessary to build confidence in your deals.

Wealth Building.  Through our agents’ efforts and the opportunities that Pearson provides, we can show you ways to build upon your success to create personal wealth.   No honest broker guarantees success, but Pearson will support your efforts with opportunities and advice.

Investors.  Pearson works with agents who represent real estate investors or investment pools.  If you wish to create a syndicate, we can show you the ways that work best, manage risk, and increase the opportunity for profitability.

On the Side.  Pearson Realty does not mind if real estate is something you do on the side or full time.  We will adjust to your schedule and the only thing that ultimately matters is that you devote enough time to serve our clients’ needs.  

Second Career.  If becoming a real estate agent is a second career for you, we want you to come work with us.   People with a mature and a pragmatic approach to sales are highly desired.  

In short, Pearson Realty will offer a true team approach that is short on smoke n’ mirrors and long on honesty and opportunity.  If that’s the kind of broker you have been looking for, you found us.

Residential Services

Pearson Realty’s approach to residential real estate is to focus on the client’s objectives, assist in overcoming all obstacles, and to perform in a professional and friendly manner.   We know that every deal and every home is as unique as the buyer or seller.  No two are alike and we will not treat them that way.

We also know that although we’re talking about a house, what really matters are the people who live or will live in that house.  For buyers:  Does it fit your lifestyle?  Is it within your budget?  Is the price fair?  Will it feel like home?

And for Sellers: What can you expect?  How will your house show?  Do you need help with fix-ups, decluttering, and staging the house?  How soon do you want to sell?

We at Pearson Realty will take the time to care about you and to assist in solving every problem that you may encounter to make your home buying or selling as smooth and pleasant an experience as possible.

Special Services for Seniors

Why Us?
Pearson Realty has the experience and the knowledge to assist with the special needs of seniors and their families.  We have an appreciation for the value of seniors’ homes as it relates to their ability to create or perserve a nest egg that can finance retirement, assisted living, or other investments.
Upon request, our in-house legal counsel can review relevant documents such as wills, trusts and powers of attorney to determine a smooth path through the sale process that conforms to both your needs and the terms of existing documents.  We may suggest that other actions be taken to protect you and your family during and after the process.

Finally, although we listen to children and caretakers to gather information about the sale of your home, we acknowledge and never forget we work for the homeowner.  They are the decision makers and we will make sure that it is their wishes that will guide any transaction.
Getting Around
We understand that some seniors have difficulty getting from one place to another.  Be it old knees or the use of a walker, we know that coming to our office might be a challenge for some of our clients.  So we came up with a simple solution, we will come to you.
When documents need to be signed or discussions need to be held to make sure that the deal continues to move rationally forward, we will come to you to do business.  Imagine sitting at your kitchen table with our settlement agent and notary brought to you.
To show that we mean what we say, call us and we will come to your home for our first consultation about your home for free.  No high pressure, no slick sales talk.  Just us dropping by for a cup of coffee and a conversation to help you sell your home.
We keep our senior clients involved and informed.  We do not patronize them or act like age has removed their ability to size up a deal and make a decision.  You will be treated with the respect you deserve.  And if someone is helping you, we will keep them informed regarding the status of the sale and what they need to know to make their assistance more effective.
The best sales scenario is when everyone is informed, cooperative and pulling oars in the same direction to achieve a successful outcome.  We will do our part to keep the ship moving in calm waters.
We will be honest with you regarding the potential value of your home either in its current condition or with some cosmetic changes that can greatly assist in making your home attractive to potential buyers.  We will provide referrals for performing any repair that might be advisable employing our proprietary network of service providers who perform work economically and in a timely manner.
We won’t try to sell your house on the cheap to get a quick sale.  You have spent a lifetime building up equity in your home and we respect that effort, so we will try to maximize the value you receive on sales.
If the homeowner has passed away, we can assist the executor of the estate in selling the home even if the executor is living out of state.  We are familiar with the steps necessary to probate an estate and although we do not perform the services of a probate attorney, we can guide the sale of the home so that the executor’s job is made simpler.
We will even assist in developing the inventory for probating personal property located within the home.  Stated simply, we will see the job through from beginning to end to assist the family, the executor and the heirs in performing what needs to be done.
