Have you "lost out" on a contract recently? If so, did your agent tell you why?

I encourage you to ask your agent if they have a CNE or RENE designation behind their name. Just a simple designation can deliver Exceptional Experience and Outstanding Results to anyone wanting to put an offer in on a home.

Being a Certified Negotiation Expert is the ONLY negotiation designation that is recognized but the National Association of Realtors.

Being a CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert) or an RENE (Real Estate Negotiation Expert) means that your agent is qualified to write an effective contract that can give you an advantage over many buyers that may be interested in the exact same property you are!

What does a CNE do? A CNE or RENE has gone through a rigorous training and has learned skills in effective contract writing as well as verbal negotiations and can maximize a client’s potential in securing a dream home by ten fold. The negotiation skills a CNE holds can give you an advantage and leverage over other offers coming in.

For example, in many cases contracts are lost due to "cash offers", but what if you as a buyer cannot offer cash but you can waive inspection, or what if you agree to pay more than what the appraisal comes in at .... or another scenario would be topurchase the property "as is".  One thing to keep in mind is that not all cash offers win out because they are cash. Many times cash offers are a lower dollar amount than offers with a loan that is actually a HIGHER OFFER or even above asking price!  What if your agent includes an "escalating clause" that could beat out other offers just by a few simple words where otherwise might be set aside.

Having gone through the training myself I am proud to say I am a Certified Negotiation Expert in the field of Real Estate. I will do everything in my power to gain an advantage where I can when submitting an offer to help my clientssecure the home of their dreams. I work hard to increase my competitive advantage in the market place with this Powerful Designation. I give everything I've got and I consider each client past present and future a true privilege.
