Never sign a Brokerage agreement that doesn’t allow you to terminate the contract unconditionally if you are not satisfied with your Agent. All of Jordan and Sheldon’s Seller Agency Agreements come with a written Guarantee that if you are not satisfied, you can cancel the Seller Brokerage Agreement. Jordan and Sheldon will also go through your NET sheet to show you what to expect for a net price after legal costs, GST and commission.
Jordan and Sheldon will go through the process of selling the house step by step and let you know what to expect from showings, what kind of deposits to request with an offer, what is the correct amount of time to allow for conditions, which conditions are acceptable, when and how conditions will be removed, what to expect on a home inspection, details on how to handle your mortgage regarding pay out penalties etc. and how Jordan and Sheldon will look after getting your paperwork to your lawyer for an easy no hassle closing.

Your home goes onto Calgary’s MLS System. Agents begin to request showings. All showings are coordinated by Jordan or Sheldon, so you will never get any surprise showings. Our marketing is in full effect by creating interest by both buyers and agents with buyers. Showings are followed up for feedback so you can be kept up to date on what the agents and buyers are saying about your home!
An offer is received on your home; Jordan and Sheldon will guide you through the offer to give you the very best advice on how to handle all the details and will point out any “red flags”. Once you are comfortable with the offer to purchase on your home, Jordan and Sheldon will guide you through the offer and counter offer process. Once a contract is agreed to, Jordan and Sheldon will work with you to make sure all conditions are removed and smooth out any problems with a home inspection etc.
Your home is SOLD and Jordan and Sheldon make sure that your home’s contract is conveyed to your lawyer with all the correct documents and it closes on time with no surprises. You can let your lawyer know where they should send your cheque or electronic funds transfer to. On possession date, most agents will want to do a walk through just prior to closing, typically at noon on possession date. Jordan and Sheldon will look after the distribution of keys to the buyer once your lawyer has authorized release of the keys.
