Some property agents specialize in the foremost elite, the luxurious property market. 

The luxury property market here within the Philippines is usually characterized by exclusivity, located in optimal areas, constructed and finished with high-end materials, and designed with uncommon architectural details and exceptional amenities.

Real estate agents who concentrate on luxury assets often deal with the High Net Worth (HNWI) or the Super Affluent Market with a net worth of $1M and above, excluding properties. For the super affluent, income isn’t any longer the most determinant but in assets.

Know The Important Details

 

One of the most important things that agents who deal with luxury real estate—or any realtor for that matter—can do for his or her clients is to listen to all pay attention to all the details. This includes key features of a property, location, amenities, and anything else that will help it sell. People who want luxury properties tend to want most of the same things everyone else does—a good neighborhood, access to shopping and community services—as well as some extra flourishes.

Luxury homes are usually large and exceptional, so you would like to bear in mind the features within the construction and finishes from the structural components additionally because of the finer appointments. 

Affluent clients can be demanding—perhaps even more than other customers. One of the better ways that luxury real estate agents can meet their demands is to be detail-oriented and prepared. Clients can always be more demanding if they are confused about something. Be specific, timely along with your information, and be the expert whom they can trust. Be organized and concise.

Jack-of-all-Trades

 

Do real estate agents themselves need to be wealthy and well-connected to find and work with affluent clients? The answer to this question is simple. No.

They do need to be experts in the market. They need to be able to talk intelligently on comparables. To be experts, these agents need to be familiar with the properties. This means seeing the homes that are for sale as well as any other inventory that has been sold.

Besides filling in clients about the real estate market, agents should be ready to share detailed information about the neighborhood. Agents also need to be experts in the area, including information about the non-real estate—luxury lifestyle and shopping center and recreational opportunities in the community— restaurants, golf, and so forth. A lot of the clients are going to have home offices, so they also need to know about things like internet services and flight information from local airports.

Develop a Highly Influential Circle

 

One method many real estate agents, brokers, and realtors use to build contacts and generate leads is through a real estate circle of influence strategy. This method focuses on generating leads through the people the agent already knows—family, friends, neighbors, classmates, business associates, and social connections.

Developing a circle of influence becomes very important to real estate brokers working with the affluents. Because most people buy, sell, or rent property at some point in their lives, every person an agent meets could become a client—not necessarily right now, but perhaps at some point in the future. Making an effort to learn about each person in your sphere of influence and maintaining regular contact with them can make a big difference. People may not be searching for homes, but often make quick decisions when the right property comes along.

Networking with other real estate brokers and professionals is also a good practice to help you connect buyers with sellers. Building a qualified team that can quickly address any property-specific questions and concerns can be indispensable.

Rely on a network of professionals to assist you, including inspectors, contractors, and engineers.

 

Ace the Marketing Strategies

 

Real estate agents use a variety of tools to market properties to potential buyers. In many cases, the marketing techniques are similar for standard or luxury properties. In general, you have the same tools—professional photography, floor plans, details of the home, surveys, history of the property, videos, and so forth.

In today’s time, the digital platform is where luxury real estate stands out from any other part of the market. This is often used to advertise luxury properties more than any other price point in the market. You’ve probably flipped through at least one website with a lot of high-definition photos of stunning interiors and well-manicured landscaping of some of the world’s most expensive homes.

Be Prepared

 

Breaking into the highly competitive luxury real estate niche can be intimidating. It’s important to be yourself and remember that you don’t have to be wealthy and well-connected to be successful in the luxury niche.

A person is not judged by the amount of money that they have in their checkbook. Some of the most genuine, giving and warmest people that some have had the pleasure of working with—and later became friends with—were luxury clients.

Boning up is one of the best ways to avoid intimidation. Know every detail about the property, know the comps in the area, know the community, and know your client.

Don’t be intimidated—be prepared. Get to know what is important to that client. Is their pet their favorite child? Are schools important? What are their hobbies and things that are happening in the lives that are important to them?

Building a career in the luxury real estate market can be emotionally and financially rewarding. If you’re just learning the field, watch how your agency’s most productive real estate brokers work with well-to-do clients. Another route to mastering the luxury market is being hired on to the sales organization of a highly successful luxury-market agent. You may end up staying with the team or moving on, but you will have learned from top people in the industry.

Successful real estate brokers that focus on the details, become experts on each property and the surrounding communities, learn about each potential client and listen for – and quickly respond to – each client’s questions and concerns.
