We're here to help.
Choosing your REALTOR® is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make, and it can be overwhelming. Most people have no idea what to ask the REALTORS® they are thinking of hiring. We want to provide the tools for you to interview REALTORS® with confidence, and to make informed decisions on the best REALTOR® for you.
Below you will find a list of questions for you to ask any REALTOR® you are interested in hiring. Also included is some basic information on what’s involved in a successful sale, and an introduction to the Chris Holm Real Estate Team.
Thank you for considering our services, and we hope you find the included information useful. Whether you feel we are the best fit for your needs, or whether you decide to work with another REALTOR® or real estate team, we thank you for your time and wish you a successful sale of your home.
Successfully selling your home for the most profit requires a solid partnership between you and your REALTOR®. Who do you want on your team?
No matter who you choose to list with, your interview process should include the following questions to ensure you get the service you deserve.
Your home will sell at the highest profit in the shortest time when all 4 pillars are strong, sound and properly balanced.

MARKET - We can't control the current trends, but we can take advantage of them and price to suit.
PRICE - Finding the right price is the single biggest factor in the success of your property sale.

Every homeowner has a story – and we are great listeners. Maybe you need a long closing date to tie up loose ends before you move. Maybe you feel your home could use a bit more work before you list, but you’d be open to selling if the right buyer came along before you finished.
In addition to the standard Multiple Listing Service®, which we use to efficiently promote your listing as far and wide as possible, we also offer an Exclusive Listing Plan. With a bit more creativity, we can introduce your home only to the most serious buyers who are willing to work with your specific goals and preferences.
Instead of being at the mercy of the market, our Exclusive Listing Plan® puts the full control in your hands. It also gives you the opportunity to feel out the market before committing to the MLS®. With this service, we have had
great success in helping clients achieve sales on their terms.
Your story should decide how we proceed with your listing. We want to design a plan and marketing strategy that fits your specific needs, so that you feel safe and cared-for throughout the selling process.
RE/MAX controls the majority of the Okanagan real estate market. Within the Vernon RE/MAX office alone, there are over 70 REALTORS® who control about 40% of the North Okanagan real estate market between them.
We hold weekly in-house meetings in which we share information on upcoming listings, as well as what our buyers are looking for. This mutual support among the Okanagan’s busiest REALTORS® results in more attention on your listing and a faster, more efficient sale of your home.
We believe in giving your listing the very best chance of success right from the start - and first impressions are everything. This is why we also include professional photographers, videographers, and social media specialists as part of our dedicated listing team.
Pricing your home correctly takes extensive experience and local market knowledge - we have that. We know how to appeal to the highest number of buyers, while protecting your bottom line and keeping to your goals and timelines.
First impressions stick. Good photos are extremely important. We provide expert advice on how to stage your home so that it shows at its best, and provide 30+ high resolution interior and exterior photos of your home.
The final price and terms on the sale of your property comes down to your agent's negotiation skills.
