South Florida REALTOR® Elizabeth Echeverry-Dangond believes that trust and communication are the cornerstones of any successful relationship – including the relationship between a real estate professional and her client.
That’s probably why so many of her clients turn into long-term friends, and why so many of her new clients come to her as referrals from those friends. They all know that she has her clients’ goals and best interests at heart.
She’ll protect them, guide them, and give her honest opinions even if the outcome is “no sale.” They also know that if they have a question or a concern they need only call, text, or email. If she’s not instantly available, she’ll get back to them within the hour.
Before starting work for either a seller or a buyer, Elizabeth takes the time to listen and understand her clients’ wants, needs, and goals. Then she tailors both her assistance and her methods of communication to their desires.
Sellers need to know what to expect when they put their homes on the market. So while she keeps her promise to limit her listing presentation to 20 minutes, she’s always willing to explain the entire process and go over all the steps that come between the offer and the closing. When offers come in, she takes time to go over them in detail, explaining what each clause and contingency means to them and preparing a net sheet so they know their “bottom line.”
Properly priced homes sell faster and for more money – so Elizabeth is meticulous in preparing a detailed Comparative Market Analysis before recommending a price to her listing clients. She uses MLS statistics, her own knowledge of specific homes, and her 17 years of experience to make accurate comparisons. Then she presents her client’s homes to the world via photos, detailed descriptions, and virtual tours posted in the Multiple Listing Service, on a number of popular Internet real estate portals and on her own website. Thanks to the Internet and her virtual tours, potential buyers all over the world are invited in to view Elizabeth’s listings.
For first time buyers, Elizabeth offers a consultation to explain the process in detail. She wants her clients to know what to expect at each step from the home search all the way through closing.
Since Elizabeth is bilingual, if clients need the process explained in Spanish, she can do that too.
In today’s fast-moving market, being ready to act when you find your dream home often makes the difference between success and failure, so Elizabeth assists her buyer clients in becoming pre-approved and having all their financial information in place before they begin the search. She also advises them on what to do – and what not to do – once they’ve been approved.
Elizabeth is known in real estate circles as a problem solver. Her communication and negotiating skills, her persistence, her creativity, and her reputation for integrity lead to solutions where many see only obstacles.
When not helping her real estate clients, Elizabeth enjoys biking, reading, and spending time at the beach. In keeping with Elizabeth’s belief in the value of clear communication, she and her husband teach free Couples Seminars to help couples learn to enhance their relationships through better communication.
