Meet Carol Haddox of Coldwell Banker Premier Group. She’s here to help you find homes in Washington, MO, but she’s also Movoto’s Top Agent in 2011. We recently asked Carol to give a little insight on how she interacts with clients:
Name: Carol Haddox
Brokerage: Coldwell Banker Premier Group
Location: Washington, MO
Movoto Agent Since: January, 2011
What is your strategy for success with Movoto Clients?
I usually try and follow up with all clients as soon as possible. The clients are surprised that a real person is calling to help them with their needs.
How do you handle clients that are maybe hesitant to meet with you?
I really don’t run into that problem much because most of them have made an inquiry and want help. I have found that the vast majority are serious buyers.
How do you explain the importance of getting prequalified to new clients?
I simply explain to them that it’s essential to submitting an offer in today’s marketplace. Sellers expect to have a prequalification letter. So if they’re serious about buying a house they need to take the steps necessary to achieve that goal.
What was your favorite Movoto Client and why?
No fair, this question I can’t answer because I enjoy all of them. I helped one woman who’s mobile home had been destroyed by a tornado find another one. I helped a gentleman relocate to Missouri from California. We had one week of intense house hunting to find the right fit. Currently I’m working with two different young ladies to buy their first home. They are all unique and different.
What has been your most memorable Movoto Client Experience?
I guess my most memorable experience was when I showed a couple a few condos they had inquired about, but also included a quick stop through a new construction unit. They decided they liked it and I turned the whole transaction over to the builder and their agent. I showed up for the final walk through and we closed the next day. Not a bad deal.
Do you have any funny experiences that you would like to share?
I recently found a squirrel loose in a vacant house that had chewed up lots of the trim work. I don’t know if that’s funny, or scary, but we sure had a good laugh after we got outside.
What is a favorite quote that you live by?
Basically, I try and follow the “Golden Rule”. Treat others as you would like to be treated. That works for me.
