Why is it better to work with a Real Estate Professional?

We asked our agents their personal input on what are the advantages of working with a Real Estate Professional rather than trying to sell a property directly, or commonly known For Sale By Owner (FSBO). These were their answers. Notice the similarity? Mike, Lisa, Alvaro & Rebeca agree in one thing: our commitment to your needs. This is what we do on a daily basis and what has made us the Number 1 Coldwell Banker office in Mexico for the past 10 years!

By listing with a professional agent you will receive much better exposure for your property; websites, printed media, social media and direct mail are just some of the tools we use.

All the steps involved in the closing of your sale will be handled in a proficient and timely manner while keeping you informed of the advances throughout the process.

 Lisa Welsch


When we asked Lisa why list with a professional, this is what she replied:

An exclusive listing with Coldwell Banker Riveras will maximize selling experience by giving you:

  1. Maximum exposure to the marketplace.
  2. Estimated net sheet – so you will know what your estimated proceeds will be.
  3. Negotiate with the Buyer’s Agent –
  4. Let you know when your property is shown and clients feedback
  5. Determine the most effective list price which will help you attain your end goal while factoring in time, capital gains tax, and your net proceeds
  6. Report on the progress of the sale
  7. Assist you with all paperwork
  8. Sell your property at the highest and best price the market will bear.
  9. Council you on how to have your home prepared for showing
  10. SELL your property

Alvaro Colindres


Alvaro’s experience has earned him several recognitions as top producers in the last years, and this is his input on why listing with a professional real estate agent is better than trying to do it on your own.

In my experience, it’s even more important to list a property with a Real Estate Professional in a Destination Resort community like Todos Santos. Visitors who are looking for a primary or second home usually start their search on the internet via the Broker or MLS websites, and when they arrive at their destination, they tour the properties that matched their search criteria. A buyer is always less confident with exploring an option that has no one to back up or help them prior their arrival.

Since the realtor knows the market and is familiar with the laws and procedures, the advice of an experienced realtor can ultimately save time and hassle for a speedy transaction.

When you place a sign on your property with contact details and a prospect calls, usually they just ask for the price and that is the end of it. Our purpose is to turn that prospect into a client by qualifying them, meaning following up, touring and answering all his/her questions. This process requires perseverance, budget and especially time. Time and around-the-clock service are just a couple of things a real estate professional will do. Relax and let us be there for you.
