It takes preparation, patience, and excellent communication. I listen to my client’s needs and do my homework to become familiarized with the houses I show them. Being a good real estate agent also requires empathy. It can be overwhelming and frustrating when homes don’t meet clients’ expectations so all of the preparation is done to avoid that overwhelming feeling.
How Do You Find The Right Properties For Your Clients?
I have to understand their wants, needs, and constraints. I ask them to complete a personalized questionnaire to collect their base requirements like budget, city, neighborhood, and size. Then, throughout the home buying process, I take notes during showings to compile additional information and refine options. The biggest thing for me is asking for three requests they can’t live without.
What Is The Biggest Challenge You Face When Showing a Home?
When I show clients a really great home, they get excited to see it, making it difficult to tell them about it! It can be pointless trying to give a presentation when my clients are too busy falling in love with their potential new home. I tell them to have a look around, take it all in, and then after a few minutes, we can regroup so I can answer their questions. This makes for a much more personal showing.
Have you Ever Had a Difficult Client, and How Did You Handle Them?
I showed some waterfront homes to a couple that were well within their budget but lacked basic amenities. Then I showed them some cottages that were out of their price range but had everything they wanted. They eventually realize that they need to adjust their expectations, then we work together to prioritize their wishlist. I’ve learned that it’s easier if the client can recognize that their expectations might not be realistic.
How Does Technology Help You Do Your Job?
The growth of social media has come to play a significant part in the real estate industry. When it comes to finding the right home, communication is critical. I use tools like Facebook, Instagram, and, of course, my website. I stay in contact with buyers who are actively looking and send text messages out every time I list a new property they would be interested in. Additionally, when it comes to getting a home ready to sell, I work with my home staging and virtual tours team as well as my videographer and photographer, who are great at getting my homes for sale ready to be listed.
What Measures do You Take to Keep Yourself Organized?
My workday is usually filled with meetings and showings. I pride myself on my punctuality and respect for my clients’ time. As a visual person, I wouldn’t be able to get through my day without taking lots of notes and then I proceed to add them to my CRM. It links to my professional calendar and also adjusts my scheduler when new appointments are added to my agenda.
What Does a Typical Work Week Look Like For You?
Working as a real estate agent is something that I am incredibly passionate about, and I understand that this role requires me to operate outside the natural workweek hours. Being there for my clients means taking their calls and questions no matter the day or time.
How Do You Determine a Client’s Needs?
After my prospective clients complete the survey, I ask them to define their ideal home. What items can they not compromise on, and what can be overlooked? I also ask clients what adjectives they would use to describe their dream home. The questions allow me to personalize my search further and choose homes that may have factors that they didn’t consider.
What Made You Choose a Career in Real Estate?
I’ve always enjoyed the challenge of selling properties and helping buyers find the right place to live. Creating a better quality of life while positively impacting others and my Georgian Bay community is how I’ve always approached my role as a real estate agent and will continue to do so in the future.
What Is Your Real Estate Focus
I focus on Waterfront Properties in Wasaga Beach, Collingwood and Blue Mountain. I love helping clients find the right home for sale including cottages and waterfront homes in the Georgian Bay area and Muskoka.
Georgian Bay and the surrounding areas have so much to offer! It is truly a great place to experience all of the 4 seasons (sometimes all in one weekend if you’re lucky!). Whether in the Georgian Bay area or out in Muskoka cottage country Emelie Hausler is your Real Estate agent to help you gain a greater sense for local life.
A little About Me
Coming from a small family farm in South Western Ontario, I’ve learned the importance of solid relationships, the value of honesty, and the power of a great work ethic.
These are the things that make me who I am and help me thrive within the booming Georgian Bay real estate industry.
My main objective as a real estate agent in Georgian Bay is to ensure that all of my clients have a stress-free yet unique experience. I do that by providing honesty, fairness, and understanding in everything that I do.
I go above and beyond my client’s wants and needs, and I ensure that they can rely on me any time of day or night as a trusted friend would.
After all, my priority is always my client’s happiness and making each real estate investment whether they are buying or selling, as straightforward as possible.
