Any seasoned, successful real estate professional will tell you that client connections do not end on closing day. Keeping up with your clients and making sure they feel supported beyond the sale is how you score repeat clients, referrals, and a good night’s sleep knowing you’re on top of your game. With an abundance of competition and a market that won’t cease fluctuating, every added bell and whistle can bring you closer to your vision of ruling the real estate kingdom.
For David Morris, Nevada’s top RE/MAX agent, success is directly correlated to providing high-quality services to his clients, his partner, and his team. He does this by surrounding himself with top affiliated companies, including American Home Shield (AHS®), which enables him to extend his quality of service.
A national leader in the home warranty sphere, AHS offers exceptional coverage to both buyers and sellers, providing top-of-the-line protection while a home is on the market, and post-sale. This helps the client feel supported and safe, and provides the agent with an assurance that they’re doing all they can to offer a complete service package.
“Working with AHS allows me to show a seller or buyer that I am offering another service of value to them,” says Morris, who has been in the real estate industry for 35 years, covering the Reno, Nev., market. Morris notes that his favorite part of his job is not only helping clients achieve their real estate goals, but assisting in problem solving along the way, and after. This is where a great home warranty company comes in. For Morris, none other than American Home Shield will do.
“Listing a home with an AHS home warranty gives the seller some comfort during the sales process,” says Morris. A home is, after all, the largest and most important purchase most consumers will ever make. Offering protection will turn you from agent to all-star. “Buyers like having the back-up of an insurance plan after spending all of their time, money and energy to buy.”
Morris stresses that covering last-minute issues helps clients know they’re being cared for.
“Knowing that they were covered by the plan makes for happy customers,” Morris says.
Aside from making his clients happy, what is Morris’ favorite thing about working with AHS? Their fast response time and impeccable customer service. American Home Shield has a shiny track record; with the nation’s largest service contractor network, the company is able to assign a contractor to a received service request within 15 minutes on 90 percent of service requests—and that’s a number both you and your clients can feel good about.
