What I Offer as a Strategic Realtor®

Christine Hutchinson, Strategic Realtor
Christine Hutchinson - Strategic Realtor

Christine Hutchinson is a Strategic Realtor® in the Ottawa Real Estate Market. What separates her from a traditional Realtor® is her integrated approach which always consists of assessing the overall situation first, evaluating all main options, and reviewing what would be in the best interest of the clients where her own situation or outcome or benefits are not taken into considerations at any given point. From there, a strategic plan is designed, parameters are elaborated with the clients, expected goals are set, and she becomes the clients' special advisor coaching them in buying or selling their home and executing the strategy.

Buying a home or selling a home strategically with Christine Hutchinson is a structured approach that delivers exceptional outcomes and redefined client experience. The feedback is unanimous.

My Strategic Approach to Buying a Home

Rooted in the DMAIC methodology I have mastered in my previous careers, I approach each new buying mandate entrusted to me with a structured, strategic mindset that not only enables myself and my clients to validate the right decisions are being made but also make strategic decisions on how this wonderful but stressful time searching for the home that will best suit them will be spent. On top of making decisions on the how, the model allows for homebuyers to understand the whys behind the overall strategy they will adopt, and control over the effectiveness of the chosen plan of action, and obviously and more importantly, the invaluable opportunity to tweak parameters to optimize results.

It seems elaborate and time consuming at first. Fear not. It takes no longer than skipping through it all and getting mediocre results with a less than desirable experience!

Define

Defining your objectives seems like the very first step any professional agent would take but remains the most skipped part of the entire process. Most assume your goal is to purchase a home. I beg to differ.

There are some internal factors contributing to your current situation you are trying to eliminate or change in your pursuit of happiness. You have identified that purchasing a home or changing home will help you accomplish that. These, are the objectives we need to define in order to set us on our humble path.

Measure

Once goals have been set, we enter the measure phase. I see this phase as a gap analysis between where you currently are and where you want to be, along with what it will take to get you there.

This is where we start reviewing that you can afford your goals, that you are willing and able to adapt to the current market conditions, and set the terms of our representation agreement.

Analyze

This is the step I love the most because I get to bring you innovative ideas that you may not have thought about.

I review all options that are susceptible to meeting your goals and we evaluate their potential.

We also discuss the risks and opportunities of each option and take a step back to review everything prior to making the big decision.

Once a strategy has been chosen, we put an action plan together with milestone to help monitoring the efficiency of the chosen strategy.

Implement

This is when we go live and execute the action plan.

Most likely, we will be hunting homes, viewing homes to make sure they are appealing to you and meet your needs and whishes, but also for me to review that they are in good conditions and have no red flags.

If we have defined your needs properly, were accurate in the gap analysis, and chosen an effective strategy, we will be submitting offers in this step and negotiating the perfect home for you and your family within the time frame established in the original action plan.

Control

Sometimes, market changes, or needs change and we need to adapt. This is why I include milestones in the action plan to measure the effectiveness of the chosen strategy. If we end up hitting the control phase, we will need to re-evaluate the parameters.

 

This would be seen as a corrective action. It could be that we haven't dug deep enough in the Define phase to uncover the true needs needing to be addressed, or due to market changes, the gap analysis is no longer accurate. It could also be that some parameters of the strategy need to be reviewed to optimized efficiency.

Knowing your true needs and motivations allows me to be the most effective member of your team; seeing homes and their potential in the exact same way you will.

Just as in any project, the more attention is paid to this step, the more focus the process is, and the more optimized the results are.

Defining your objectives seems like the very first step any professional agent would take but remains the most skipped part of the entire process. Most assume your goal is to purchase a home. I beg to differ.

I use a tool known as a gap analysis to evaluating your current situation and where you want to be. Then I evaluate micro-market conditions and we discuss your ability and willingness to adapt to these conditions.

This is also where we set up the terms of our agreement, finalize financing, and start discussing parameters for options.

Knowing what it takes to get you where you want to be is crucial, and too often left out. A thorough review of where you stand and where the market stands is vital in reviewing your options.
