If I had ever doubted that which real estate agent one chooses to sell one’s home matters, my recent experience with Art Lewis reminded me that it does, in this case to the tune of about $50,000. Before deciding which agent to use in selling my high rise condo unit downtown, I contacted an alternative to Art, someone who has sold many units in the same building. It became apparent that agents differ in the pricing strategies the adopt. Some, like the alternative agent, like to price low, or underprice, hoping to receive multiple offers that then bid up the final selling price. That was not Art’s approach and I decided to use him. This was not only because of his pricing strategy but also that he is a consummate professional in everything he does. The outcome was that I received roughly $50,000 more as a result of my decision than I would have received had I chosen the other agent. I have no hesitation in referring anyone I care about to Art Lewis. He is superb.
