You loathe typical real estate agent bios. Don’t worry, I do too. They’re like cardboard -- stiff, bland, and identical to every other bio out there. Instead of boasting ad nauseum about awards and accomplishments you’re not interested in, I’m taking the novel approach of actually giving you what you want -- real answers to questions you’re probably wondering right now.
Will you return my calls and emails?
Yes. Without question.
I realize this is one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents. I get dozens of calls and emails daily, and I work hard to reply as quickly as possible.
I’ve met many Realtors who are jerks. Are you?
Depends on who you ask. If you ask certain agents who have stood between my clients and their real estate goals, they'll probably say "yes". A handful of people think I leave golden footprints in the sand. Those are the two extremes, and most people's opinion falls somewhere in the middle. Here's what I can tell you: I'm honest and candid. I take pride in being approachable and friendly. And if you need a quick real estate brain, or a strong dose of honesty, you’re in the right place. Loyalty to family, clients, and friends is one of my core values.
Do You Have experience doing exactly what I need?
Until you tell me what you need, there is no way of knowing.
These are "strong suits" of mine:
•Working with 1st Time Home Buyers
•Residential Home Sales
• Market Knowledge
If your goal or situation isn't represented on that list, don't worry. Contact me anyway. If I can't help, I can get you referred to another agent who can.
What kind of work are you really good at?
On a personal level, I am very involved in the community. I am on the board for my daughters High School Soccer Booster Club, I am the team manager for the local club soccer team, I was also Umpire in Chief at our local Little League at one point.
On a professional level, here are the skill-sets that I’ve developed over the years: • Listening. Unfortunately, it’s a lost art these days. • Negotiating • Outside Networking – (I have someone to help with any need)
What do clients think of you?
My clients are better suited to answer this for you. Here’s what some of them have said.
First, Todd listed our condo for us, and with his strategic marketing, we had an offer within 24 hours, and we're under contract in 48. Quick sale! Then with that fast sale, we needed to find a place. Todd worked tirelessly with my wife and I on our house hunt. He gave good recommendations, and had our best interest in mind, and worked with our awkward schedules. With his help, we found our PERFECT house. I would definitely recommend Todd for anyone looking to take the stress out of an already stressful situation. Also very accommodating to our 2yr old. Our son made a friend in the process. (Mr. Todd)
Todd quickly found a home that had the key features on our wish list and in one of the areas we were interested in living. The process from offer acceptance to closing was smooth and seamless. Todd provided insight about the surrounding area plus contact information facilitating setting up utilities and getting multiple quotes on competitive services like home insurance.
Todd Swenson was great in the entire sale, from beginning to end. He was helpful, supportive and knowledgeable.
Todd goes above and beyond to get the job done.
