Why Take a Chance?

When you are deciding about which agent to choose for the sale of your home or the purchase of a resale or a new build, what goes in to your decision about which agent to choose? There are lots of good, solid agents out there to choose from, including my team. Some are referrals from family or friends, some are based on reputation and experience, and some are chosen strictly by chance.

Let me make my case for why you should choose my team.

First let’s look at the stats: In 2015 we sold 72% more homes in your area as compared to our closest competitor. In overall perspective, we sold 240% more than the average of our top ten closest competitors in your neighborhoods. In 2014, we sold 2.5 times as many as our closest competitor and 4 times as many as the average of the top ten competitors. Interestingly, the closest competitor and the average of the closest competitors are not the same from 2014 to 2015. Our team clearly and undisputedly has the most sales in your neighborhoods over the past 2 years and more than double the number of sales of our closest competitor.

Now let’s look at what the actual customers have said about working with our team.

These are taken from the 4 most current reviews I have received on Zillow.

“Al was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. He sold my house fast and without a hitch. I would recommend Al highly to anyone with Real Estate to sell or buy.”

Of course friendly is an arbitrary trait, knowledgeable and professional are important traits to consider when selecting an agent. “Selling the home fast and without a hitch” also speak to the years of experience, reputation among other agents and skill required to successfully close your home.

“Al and Terri are very helpful in the buying and selling process. They are quick to respond and answer all questions in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend them for buying or selling.

Quick to respond and helpful are also very important traits to consider. If we are selling more homes than anyone else in the neighborhood and can manage to answer our phones, texts and emails, then we believe this should speak to our work ethic, time management skills and should be the standard of care for all agents. It also may accurately reflect that we don’t have much of a life other than work!

“Al Gage is great to work with.

Not only is he very knowledgeable and professional he goes out of his way to ensure that you get the best experience possible. His wife Teri is an absolute doll. They both made this experience so much easier than it could have been. Our house was on the market for 4 days and had multiple offers at full price. I would highly recommend them to anyone.”

This one again mentions knowledgeable and professional but also includes going the extra mile and getting top dollar for their home in a short period of time.

“Realtor Al Gage went above and beyond to help us get our house sold. He was honest in his suggestions for what needed to be done to get top dollar for our house. With us being from out of town, Al recommended stellar contractors to help us facilitate carpet and painting.”

Above and beyond again speaks to work ethic as well as a true caring for our clients. Honesty is also one of the most important characteristics you are looking for in an agent.

Some of the other comments listed on my reviews from clients signing independently and verified by Driggs Title are:


“Very Impressed!!”

“Amazing process!”

“Al was very pleasant and patient! He absolutely had our interest and questions totally covered at all times. Al has been awesome!”


Regardless of whether you rely on reviews or statistics, it is readily apparent that our team offers the best service, professionalism, performance and reliability in the neighborhood that you live.
