When Portland, Maine REALTOR® Shawn Losier states that he wants to be “Your Real Estate Consultant for Life,” it’s not “wishful thinking”… it’s his prediction of the relationship he will earn based on prior experience from an ever growing number of clients who have been seeking his guidance again and again since he was first licensed in 1998
With his professionalism, market knowledge, and negotiating skills, Shawn offers his clients an unsurpassed level of care. For Shawn, fiduciary duty goes beyond the financial aspects of buying or selling a home and include handling transaction’s in a manner that relieves the stress and uncertainties that so often surround life-changing events like buying a home.
In fact, stress and uncertainty were actually two of the factors that led Shawn to a career in real estate. When he set out to buy his first home, he couldn’t find any agents to help him, because he says the price point was so low that there was little incentive for agents to go that extra mile.
After being forced to represent himself in that first purchase he decided to become licensed, so he could help others in the same position. Today those first time buyers, no other agents wanted, are his clients, friends and his advocates. Over the years he’s assisted with the sale of many of those first homes and with the purchase of move-up homes – often more than once. And of course, he still enjoys helping first time buyers accomplish their dreams of home ownership.
Shawn attributes his clients loyalty to his negotiation skills, frequent communication and extensive knowledge of the Portland area market. They also appreciate his problem-solving abilities and technological savvy, as well as his written Satisfaction Guarantee Agreement. In testimonials his clients do mention those factors, but what shines through is their knowledge that he truly cares about the outcome for each of them.
He wants each of his clients to get not only “the best deal,” but “the right deal,” and he works tirelessly to make that happen.
Shawn’s care for others extends beyond his clients to his fellow REALTORS® and to the community at large. He’s served as a Director of the Board of the Greater Portland Board of Realtors since 2006 and served as its President in 2011. He consistently chairs a number of Board committees and participates in many others.
He’s also a leader in several Fraternal and beneficent organizations such as the Freemasons, and offers his service in support of their many charities. A member of the Stroudwater Christian Church, he’s lead guitarist in their Worship team and also volunteers and serves on the Board of the Westcustago Youth Chorale. Always concerned for the welfare of those less fortunate, he lends financial support to “Samaritan’s Purse” and the “Raising the Children of God” foundation.
Due to his commitment to both clients and community, Shawn received the Realtor Spirit award in 2014, 2015 REALTOR® of the Year award for the Greater Portland Board of Realtors, and was nominated for the 2015 REALTOR® of the Year award for the State of Maine.
My philosophy about real estate is that I am here to help two parties (buyer and seller) find each other and complete a transaction with a minimum of fuss and headache. I am busy enough to be happy and successful, yet not so busy that I can’t take a personal interest in every client. The sale of your home is as important to me as it is to you. That is my commitment to you!
After Going On the Market:
I follow up with every buyer agent who shows your home. I will provide their feedback to you as soon as it comes in.
Extensive Internet Exposure
I have invested heavily in the Internet to market my listings. This marketing generates substantial traffic and e-mail inquiries, and is my third largest source of sales. All listings have a virtual tour, interior pictures and descriptive captions.
All of my listings have Virtual Tours and are posted to Yahoo Real Estate, Craigslist, MSN, and over twenty other popular search engines and our own web site. Virtual tours consist of both still photos and panoramic “tours”, and will include pictures of every photogenic room in your home, the exterior, any view, the street scene, and the neighborhood attractions (parks, restaurants, shopping). I can post up to unlimited photos on each tour!
Creative Solutions/Objective Opinions
As I get to know your home better, and the feedback starts coming in, I may find that the market is objecting to something that neither of us thought of. Or, I may discover special features in your home that should be showcased differently. Either way, I take great pride in my creative solutions – this is, making adjustments as we go along in response to market feedback and conditions. If I see something that needs to be changed, I will tell you – whether or not I think it’s something that you want to hear. Many agents seem to assume that their clients are not open to suggestions, and I work on the assumption that that’s part of what you’re paying me for!!
I am up to date on the latest real estate technology. I have a professional quality digital camera with a wide angle lens, so that the photos of your home will be sharp and attractive. I have a high quality laser printer that produces amazing graphics and pictures for your home brochures. I make extensive use of e-mail, and I update my web sites several times a week.
My Personal Professionalism
I am a full time real estate agent. Representing my clients is my top priority. I am responsive to inquiries by both buyers and other agents. I am respected in the real estate community as a “quality agent” which means that other agents will be happy to show my listings to their buyers. They know that I am professional, fair and creative which makes their job just a little easier.
As a REALTOR®, I am a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and am bound by their Code of Ethics. I am also committed to upholding the expectations of my company, Green Tree Realty.
However, I personally offer my own Listing Services Guarantee to you.
My service guarantee is simple. I do what I say I’m going to do, when I say I’m going to do it. If you are unhappy with my service, you may terminate our agreement. No questions asked.
Is there anything else that is important to you? Just ask.
I truly appreciate your business.
I look forward to helping make your next real estate transaction a pleasant and painless experience, and hopefully even a little fun!
