Several years ago, I had a number of rental properties out of state that I wanted to sell. I contacted an agent and engaged him to handle the sale of my properties. I did my due diligence as well as I could. During our initial interview, I asked him about his experience. We talked about what he thought separated him from the pack. I asked how he planned to market the properties. I was satisfied enough with his answers to engage him on the only terms available, a 12-month listing agreement.
However, within days, I learned that he had only told me what I wanted to hear. He had no intention of following through on his promises. I soon became frustrated to learn that he felt his job was done once the home was on the MLS and a sign was up in the yard.
He didn’t hustle to get the property in front of buyers. He stopped giving me updates regarding what was going on with the sale of my property, essentially leaving me in the dark. He basically quit selling the day he got the listing.
With the contract in place, my hands were tied. I started wishing for a “you fire me” clause in the contract. And, I decided that I wanted to have a clause that could give that protection to every seller I work with.
This guarantee is exactly what it sounds like. Unhappy for any reason? You, the property owner, can cancel your listing after 24 hours on the market. There is no long-term binding agreement that could potentially force you to sell your home even if you’ve decided not to move.
There is no catch. I believe in my ability to sell your property. I am confident enough that I will prepare your home marketing launch with no upfront fees. And, you can still get out of our contract after just one day on the market.
Even with all the right marketing, it can still take more than a day, a week, or a month to sell your home. But, I believe that you will be so impressed with the service that I offer that the only way we’ll part ways is when you drive away in the moving truck.
When I first implemented my One Day Listing Guarantee, I thought that five to 10 percent of my sellers would fire me just because they could. However, not one seller has ever fired me. (A little side note: please don’t sign up just so you can be the first person to fire me!)
Most homes will not sell on the first day they are listed. However, my listings consistently sell for more money in a faster time frame than the market average. I believe that you’ll soon get to know my expertise and commitment and will trust me with the time it takes to get your property sold.

* As long as you are not under contract or in negotiations with a buyer, you can cancel our listing agreement at any time without any fees or penalty.
