6 things to not say to your real estate agent

  1. “I’m looking for a penthouse on the ground floor”
    Any kind of penthouse is our dream home because we love the views that usually accompany it! However, placing a penthouse on the ground floor limits that. As much as we do our best to exceed your expectations, unfortunately, this is one feat out of our hands! A penthouse is a type of property that is located on the top floor of a building and comes with a lovely terrace. If you’re unsure of the specific terms for properties don’t you worry. Just tell us what you have in mind and we will sort out the rest.
  1. Can you drop me off at XYZ estate agency’s office on your way?
    We are all about customer service and doing whatever we can to make you happy! As much as we love vying for your attention and a healthy competition, please don’t break our little lion hearts! We don’t mind being exclusive with you!
  1. I love this place! Let me get back to you by next week.
    Your home is your kingdom and deciding where to live is a big decision! Yes, we understand one needs a bit of time to evaluate and ponder, however, this is Malta! Demand is greater than supply and if you truly have fallen in love with a property, we advise you to take it immediately! It is our objective to match you with your ideal unit and don’t want to be the ones to tell you that the property in question is gone.
  1. I did not check your website as it must be outdated.
    Technology may not be every lion’s best friend but it is definitely ours! Ensuring that our website is updated and has the latest listings is one of our main priorities.  Sit back, relax with a cup of coffee and search for your home from the comfort of your bed! Each day will bring about a new experience as the Gold Lion website is updated daily.
  1. Show my property to prospective clients when I am around.
    As much as we would love to hang out with you at every viewing, it may not be possible. We understand that your schedules are busy, so let us take care of this so you may enjoy more free time. Flexibility is crucial so that you may find the right tenant/buyer and get the best offer.
  1. I wouldn’t mind being paid to look at pretty properties all day.
    We wish! Our lions devote all their energies in making appointments with both owners and prospects, ensuring the legal requirements of all properties are fulfilled, researching the market, comparing properties, arranging inspections/viewings, inputting properties in the database, preparing contracts and countless more administrative tasks. Yes, we do get to admire pretty houses however, we pour our hearts and souls into our work!
