When you are deciding who you want to market and sell your property, be sure to ask if they are a REALTOR® or sales associate/real estate agent. There are differences between REALTORS® and sales associates/real estate agents.
A Realtor is the only one who can display the logo REALTOR®
A REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®. As such, the main difference that you hear a lot about — but are likely confused about — is that a REALTOR® must subscribe to the REALTOR® Code of Ethics.
But what does this mean to a consumer? The Code of Ethics is strictly enforced. It contains 17 Articles and various underlying Standards of Practice. It’s not just a bunch of rules that agents swear to uphold and adhere to. The Standards are much more restrictive and confining as to conduct than those governing agents who simply hold a real estate license.
The most important attribute of a Realtor is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. In addition, you also want to look for a Realtor that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.

Why use Tony Vadala as your Resident Realtor® to list your Property in Forest Park?
All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the National Association of REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR® logo on the business card or other marketing and sales literature. REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate.

“Communication & Trust is a strong foundation to success”
The selling process generally begins with a determination of a reasonable asking price. I will give you up-to-date information on what is happening in the marketplace and the price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties. These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle.
The next step is a marketing plan. I will recommend repairs or cosmetic work that will significantly enhance the salability of the property. Marketing includes the exposure of your property to other real estate agents and the public. In many markets across the country, more than 50 percent of real estate sales are cooperative sales; that is, a real estate agent other than yours brings in the buyer.
I will be the marketing coordinator, disbursing information about your property to other real estate agents through a Multiple Listing Service or other cooperative marketing networks, my dedicated website Forestparkrealtor.com along with many open houses for public viewing. I generally try to hold open house once a week for my listings.
Advertising is part of marketing. The choice of media and frequency of advertising depends a lot on the property and specific market. For example, in some areas, newspaper advertising generates phone calls to the real estate office but statistically has minimum effectiveness in selling a specific property. Overexposure of a property in any media may give a buyer the impression the property is distressed or the seller is desperate. I will know when, where and how to advertise your property. There is a misconception that advertising sells real estate. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® studies show that 82 percent of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, family and personal contacts.
When a property is marketed with my help, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. I will pre-screen and accompany my qualified prospects through your property. When I list your property, I will install an electronic device that records all entries in to your property, who entered and what time. I immediately revisit your home after another agent has shown it to their buyer to be sure all is secured. If you property is vacant, I will conduct a daily/nightly check to insure your property is safe and secured. That’s the benefit of having a Resident Realtor.
The negotiation process deals with much the same issues for both buyers and sellers. I will help you objectively evaluate every buyer’s proposal without compromising your marketing position. This initial agreement is only the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and financing — a lot of possible pitfalls. I will help you negotiate a legally binding, win-win agreement that will be more likely to make it through the process.
Monitoring, renegotiating and closing:
Between the initial sales agreement and closing (or settlement), questions may arise. For example, unexpected repairs are required to obtain financing or a cloud in the title is discovered. The required paperwork alone is overwhelming for most sellers. I will objectively help you resolve these issues and move the transaction to closing (or settlement).
