Knowledge

It has been said that the 3 key factors in selecting a piece of real estate to buy are "location, location and location". The 3 key factors in selecting a Realtor to sell your condo are "knowledge, knowledge and knowledge". Bob and Travis are avid students of the Ottawa condo market. They strive to stay current on the direction the market is heading, what trends are emerging, and what it all means for you, the seller. We will use our in depth knowledge to assist you in making informed decisions when it comes to selling your condo.

Intelligent Marketing®

Bob and Travis use the concept of Intelligent Marketing® to promote their listings, which is the idea of determining the profile of the likely buyer for your property and then tailoring a marketing strategy directly to this group. As a busy condo owner, you likely do not want or need a high quantity of "buyers" that have not been pre-screened or qualified, traipsing through your home or investment property never to be heard from again. What Bob and Travis strive for is to bring a lower quantity but a higher quality of genuinely interested prospective buyers through. Our goal is to have this result in a quicker sale and more money in your pocket, with less hassle for you. Bob and Travis take advantage of all of the tools available to a home seller; a strong online presence, multi-media presentations of the property, print media and creative marketing.

Proven successful selling system

Selling a condo can sometime seem fairly easy, but it can also sometimes be complex. With years of refinement, our seller clients receive customized service, but it is all based on the backbone of our successful selling systems, and the use of our intelligent marketing® concepts. We ensure that our clients understand the process, and are ready to climb every step along the way, ensuring that documents are sent to the right people, that appointments are coordinated, the list goes on...

A team of 2 Licenced agents for the price of one

Bob Fraser and Travis Gordon are both licenced realtors® with Re/Max metro-city realty ltd., brokerage. With their involvement in the Ottawa real estate market, they have gained valuable experience, and worked through many tough situations and gained invaluable knowledge which is used to help their clients in their respective transactions.

Why 2 agents: to provide better service to our clients. Bob and Travis both have families here in Ottawa, and like most people, like to enjoy time off to spend with their friends, families, extracurricular activites, etc., so they can actually take a day off, but still provide their clients with service 7 days a week when necessary. If someone tells you that they work everyday, and will be there 24/7, although they may physically be able to do so, they most likely will not be able to perform at their highest level — it would be like asking a professional hockey player to play an entire game — it is impossible for them to perform at as high of a level as if they only played 1 minute shifts. The bottom line — we can provide our clients with service 7 days a week, and still be human!

Experienced Administrative support staff

To help ensure that our clients experience is smooth, memorable, and professional, we have in-house administrative support staff, and a client care coordinator to make sure that all of the little things are taken care of! We also have a centrally located office downtown, with satellite offices throughout the city with some of the most convenient office hours in the city, most of them are open Monday-Friday 8:30am to 9:00pm, Saturday 9-5 and Sunday 10-4. For after hours, we have a 24 hour/day 7 day a week paging service in case of an emergency, or time sensitive matter such as an offer on a property for a buyer or seller.

Negotiating skills and expertise

Dr. Chester Karrass once said "In business, you don't get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate." Bob and Travis bring superior negotiating skills to the table. With over 25 years combined experience selling real estate, they will assist you through the negotiating process, discuss strategy and the pros and cons of various negotiating tactics. The goal at the end of the negotiation is a win-win result for all parties, and a price and terms that you are happy with. One of the key tools Bob and Travis bring to the negotiation of your condo sale is more knowledge than the competition. By doing in-depth research when creating a pricing strategy, and working hard to know more than the competition, Travis and Bob are better prepared to defend that price when the time comes to negotiate.

Cutting edge technology

Online marketing for real estate is not the way of the future, it is the way of today. With almost 90% of all condo searches starting online, if you do not have a website, you may as well not have a phone. When we created the OttawaCondoGuide.com, we wanted to create a forum for sellers to educate themselves within the Ottawa condo market, but also to provide the best possible service to sellers in having the best online market presence, and presenting and marketing their condos in the most professional manner possible...
