‘We will take care of everything for you, from A to Z’ – Part 1
Premium & Fully Comprehensive International Real Estate Servicing: elements that constitute a successful ensemble.
Investing can be an interesting, albeit often complex endeavour. Property investment, in particular, has been a steady propelling factor for both developed and developing economies, and often a prime choice among lay investors in an otherwise fairly challenging & complicated investment products market. The role of the realtor in this equation is key: match your needs to the right property and ensure (as much as is realistically possible) that you are content with your choice after the sale. However, is anything that simple, really?
Hardly ever. Especially when dealing with collectively planning and playing a part in how an investor’s (hence potentially a couple’s, a family’s, a business’) future is shaped. Obviously, this is not the sole responsibility of the realtor or agency servicing the client, some may even argue their role is limited, as is their responsibility in the outcome. Perhaps. But in today’s modernized fast- and free-flying information society means business structures involved in the area of services face a prolific yet potentially difficult challenge.
The making of a successful services-focused business highly correlates with the making (and keeping) of a content, ideally fully satisfied client base. A client base gratified enough they are willing to voice and hopefully spread the positive message about their customer experience, and who always remain eager to come back for more. In effect, if you are satisfied, you will talk about it and you may even refer others to an agency that has served you well. Unsatisfied customers were always a sign of bad service. Let alone now, when they equally have the means to discuss and project their negative experience widely, spreading the news faster, more efficiently and effectively to the four corners of the earth, through the web.
Throw in an international twist, where a business extends its operations and customer base beyond borders therefore now needing to address cross-cultural and in effect transnational issues involved in the making of satisfied clients, and things can get a tad more challenging. Thus, real estate agencies and property investment-focused businesses generally need to ensure their services are at the premium level unavoidably dictated by the level of responsibility their work entails for you, their clients. It is your voice that matters, and the outcome of your investment that makes or breaks us. International property investment services even bring in a certain added complexity to the range of tasks requiring successful planning and completion.
One need not despair, however. There are businesses out there who have developed their services in ways that allow them to perform the task brilliantly. Employing the design of fully comprehensive, flexible and well-informed cutting-edge services and infusing them with the level of responsibility and professionalism required to do so. Specific elements seem to augment the possibility of success in these cases, as dictated by clients’ as well as experts’ professional feedback so far.
In the second part of our article, we will present and discuss these elements. They have been repeatedly flagged as key factors to identifying the real estate agency that has been appropriately and adequately developed, organized and managed, in order to ensure your property investment is solid, wise and as profitable as possible in the current socio-financial climate. In essence, we will provide a specific and clear guide listing and discussing each key trait that will help you make the right choice, and enjoy peace of mind that your investment may, in fact, prosper.
