Do I need a "local" agent to list my home?

We haven't seen your signs in our neighborhood. Don't we need a "local" Agent?

    No, you don't. In Houston, like most major metropolitan areas, the vast majority of homes are sold using the latest technology including the Internet and MLS. Buyers come from all areas, not the "local" area or subdivision so there is simply no need for a Listing Agent to be "local". In fact, most of the better Listing Agents cover a large market area and have listings widely scattered about town. The important factors to consider when choosing an agent are experience, knowledge, competence, training and education, and the ability to utilize the latest technology. Knowing every street name and every neighbor in your subdivision is not a factor in getting your home sold.

If your office isn't close by, how can you sell our house?

    Easy. We are living in the electronic age. Listings are maintained "on-line" in computer databases so that anyone anywhere has access to them. Contracts are submitted and responded to by fax or email. Brokers, clients and customers communicate by telephone and e-mail whether across town or across the street. Most listings are "shown" to the Buyer by the Buyer's Agent who represents them. There simply isn't a need for today's Listing Agent to be located "just down the street" as might have been the case in the past. Certainly there are some issues of convenience that will come up. However, Lena Pullen has successfully listed and sold homes in many subdivisions and communities in both Harris and Fort Bend Counties without a problem.

Why should I list with you rather than one of the local “well known” real estate firms?

    Many reasons. Since every Realtor® operates as an Independent Contractor (not an employee) their name recognition has little impact on how the Realtor® gets the job done. Would you make the decision to buy or not buy a home you like simply because of the company and realtor’s name on the sign? Of course not. Some of these companies and their agents capitalize on their name recognition to capture business, not to offer better, faster or different services. I can offer more personalized services tailored to your specific needs. I have been in business for over 25 years providing many clients with excellent service. My goal is not quantity but quality.

Who is "Number One" in the business? Shouldn't we go with them?

    Everyone in the business, it seems, claims to be Number One. Look around and you will find that just about every Agent in town says that he or she is the "Top Producer". Well, so what? Do you really care if an Agent sold 100, 200 or 400 homes last year? And, if they did, what kind of personal service can you expect to receive for your "one" home? Quantity simply does not equal quality in real estate and Lena Pullen doesn't try to play in the quantity game. Excellent, personalized service is that gets the job done right, and is offered right here. Plus, you will save money as well. You make the choice.
