A pair of keys exchanging to another person's hand
It’s true, there are plenty of real estate agents that are vying for your business. So, how do you choose the right agent? A good real estate agent will be your guide through the entire buying/selling process so, when choosing a real estate professional, you will want to pick an agent based on your specific needs. Decide on what qualities are most important to you in an agent and seek out those attributes in your candidates.
Not only will you want an agent that meets your requirements but you will want to choose an agent from a reputable brokerage. Why? Because a good broker gives agents instant credibility. A good reputable broker will have standards that agents have to adhere to and you’ll want an agent who has integrity and a strong work ethic. This is why Blanchard and Calhoun's agents are so desired - they are well known in their community and have a great reputation.
Below are four reasons why you should consider working with a Blanchard and Calhoun agent when buying or selling real estate.
1. B&C agents provide exceptional customer service. At Blanchard and Calhoun, we believe that cultivating strong, long-lasting relationships is the lifeline of our business. For this reason, our real estate professionals adhere to a strict code of ethics. We operate on core values of honesty, trust, and loyalty while providing tailored services to meet our clients’ needs. We truly value our relationships and we are always grateful for our client’s business. We are not just a corporation, we are your neighbor and our clients are our family.
2.Our agents are local experts. The Blanchard and Calhoun Real Estate team know the CSRA like the back of their hand; which means they know important data for their area. Not only do they know the current market values and statistics but they have studied demographics and actively take part in their community.
In addition to being knowledgeable of the CSRA, they have a network for connections. Local experts know just about real estate service providers that not only includes mortgage lenders but plumbers, inspectors, roofers, and general contractors. Whatever your home needs are, a B&C agent can connect you to the right person.
3. B&C agents are Ninjas! In March, Blanchard and Calhoun hosted a four day Ninja Selling workshop for their agents. Attendees focused on improving their selling skills, strengthening relationships and growing their careers. The course doesn’t just focus on sales but teaches personal growth and the importance of relationships because we understand that our business will only grow to the extent that we do.
Ninja Selling is recognized world-wide as one of the most valued training in real estate sales. The system equips agents on building relationships and helping their clients achieve their goals. These courses teach agents how to strengthen relationships, be more productive, develop good habits, and become local experts.
Ninja graduates learned how to improve their quality of life by working smarter, not harder. By adding value for their clients while balancing work life. We are truly proud of our Blanchard and Clhoun, REALTORS® and the value they bring to the community. It's so exciting to watch their careers grow because graduates have applied what they learned.
4. We’re Local; We’re Global. B&C Agents can help you move anywhere. We understand moving, in general, can be stressful. Moving away or moving to a different state altogether, can be a complex task.

Our affiliation with LeadingRE also gives our agents several tools they can use to grow their business, such as Military on the Move, Luxury Portfolio, Institute and Testimonial Tree.
