“It is a lot more about deal-making, about writing up all offers and getting in front of your sellers; not telling them that they should accept the offer, but giving them choices and exploring why they should consider…and what the future might look like if they do or don’t accept the offer.”
In the last few months, there has been a fair bit of talk about the “changed market” but it’s been a challenge over in the west for some time now, where agents have needed to put their all into getting deals together. In this week’s edition of the Elevate podcast, Samantha McLean talks to Stefanie Dobro, a top performing agent with Caporn Young in Fremantle in WA, who has featured in the magazine many times.
In this podcast we unpack some of the tools Stefanie uses to put deals together, how she keeps her energy up (even if the chips are a little bit down), how to build trust, along with some tips to manage your time together amongst competing priorities.
