Why Choose Mike?
If you’re visiting this page, you’re probably asking yourself, “Why should I choose Mike Puckett to be my Realtor?”
That’s an excellent question. In fact, it’s a question I’ve considered many times and I believe there are several reasons why I think you should choose me to be your Realtor:
1. I’m Honest
I believe that everyone has a right to an honest Realtor regardless of the price of the home they would like to sell or purchase. Some real estate agents may want to find the home that offers the best commission with the least amount of effort. I will take whatever time is necessary to find the right match for YOU.
For Buyers, I will be honest with you about a property and will openly share my observations and opinions. For Sellers, I will be honest about setting the price for your home. I’ll give you my honest opinion and share my expertise on what will help sell your home and what the challenges might be.
I promise to point you in the direction of fair, legitimate, and honest vendors whether in a title company, mortgage broker, or inspection service. And if I’m not the right person to help you, I’ll admit it and introduce you to somebody who is.
2. I’m a Negotiator
One of my primary roles as a Realtor is as negotiator. I’ll work with buyers and sellers and their reciprocal agents and clients to negotiate the best deal for YOU. I consider it very important to make sure you are making a wise decision on your investment. I know many of the mistakes people make in real estate and my goal is to keep you from committing any of those mistakes. I want to make sure you aren’t just pleased with the look and feel of your home, but your satisfaction as an investment or as a sale.
I’ll also help you through the home inspection process, which can be one of the most difficult phases of buying or selling a home. I’ll guide you through what should be fixed or not fixed, what needs attention, what’s fair or not fair, etc. Too often, this is where transactions fall through and they shouldn’t. Good negotiation skills are critical.
3. I Am Experienced
Prior to becoming a Realtor, I bought and sold nine homes of my own. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer, single, head of a growing family, an executive transfer, or an empty-nester, I have experience in each of these situations and will bring that experience to you.
After more than 30 years of working for the same company, I became a Realtor and have invested in continuing education, certifications, and formal training in order to serve you well. I’m proud to have been recognized as a Top Performer multiple times in my real estate career.
Moreover, my skills from my earlier career help me in real estate every day, whether it’s achieving customer satisfaction, dealing with vendors, negotiating, understanding financing, or being a leader. I’ve seen it all and I know how to get you through the process of buying or selling a home smoothly.
4. I Am Knowledgeable
I grew up in Indiana, moving around the central and eastern United States several times before returning to the Hoosier state in 1988. Since then, I’ve closely followed what’s happening in and around Indianapolis.
I can help you find or sell a home anywhere in the Greater Indianapolis area, but I have an especially good understanding of the northwest side of Indianapolis including Pike Township and the Traders Point areas. I have bought and sold many homes in Zionsville and Brownsburg and lived in Zionsville for more than a decade – these are communities in which I specialize.
5. I Care
I love to help people and it’s one of the reasons I became a Realtor. If you are my client, I will take care of you like a friend and I hope you will consider me a friend too. Buying and selling homes can be stressful, even maddening at times, but we’ll strive to have fun along the way.
Because I care about my clients, I am willing to spend time with you and I have the time to offer; my children are grown and I love what I do! I’ll show you as many houses as you want to see and I’ll spend as much time with you as it takes to make sure you are satisfied. I’ll go out of my way to make you happy.
If you choose me to be your Realtor, I promise you all of these things and more. Find out for yourself and give me a call or send me an email.
