Ian Watt: Hi good afternoon! It’s Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver.
I got an email from a client today and actually I did a listing
presentation on Saturday for her fantastic studio in the West End. And
she emailed me and said she noticed that I charged a little bit more
commission than the other realtors. And, well not to sound too pump or
to sound like cosmetics company but the reason why I do that is because
I'm worth it. I have a proven plan, I have had great sales this year. I
think we're in our 7th week already and I have 8 firm sales which is
pretty good in this market wherein there's only five or eight sales
reported everyday in the Downtown core. So I think I have a, I think
I'm worth the extra percent that I'm gonna charge. And don't be concern
about what I'm going to be charging. Be more concern about what I can
get for you. And you know what another thing is if I waffle on my
commission right now. I'm probably gonna waffle in the negotiation on
your property. So if I can hold firm on my commission which I think I'm
entitled to. I'm gonna hold firm to getting you the best dollar
possible for your property. My name is Ian watt. You can always email
me at email@example.com. Thank you very much and have a great day!
