This week we sat down with one of our Team Leaders who manages the Attard shop with his team of agents and we asked him a couple of questions. He has been working with Sara Grech for over 11 years now, her “bro” Sara would say! Alexis Cachia has been loyal before Sara Grech licenced up with Engel & Völkers in Malta in 2012 and this for many reasons, Alexis goes on to say.
He feels that the strong sense of respect for each agent within the company does well whilst giving everyone a sense of belonging. He believes that all this is a result of professionalism and the training programme which guides all the agents in the right direction. This is what makes us stand out from the crowd. “There is nothing nicer than the truth. Honesty prevails” he goes on to say and that is the way we conduct our business internally and externally giving us all a tranquil approach to our career.
With such a strong background in real estate and with the E&V brand, we went on to ask a couple of more questions about the current market:
Is it the right time to sell your home?
After the slowdown in the market things have already started to turn around and we have had a very good start to January 2020. The market is stabilizing, prices are decreasing, and the market is heading in a different direction when compared to the past couple of years. 2020 is looking very promising.
Why should you use a real estate agent?
A professional estate agent can save the customers valuable time and money in various ways. Our agents work in specific areas which means we are experts of those streets and towns. The agent knows everything about property sizes, prices, and which property has the best value, which is well located and its price per square metre. We can guide our clients by saving them the time and effort and offer a full explanation report for the best valued property. We agree on terms and prices to help both parties accomplish what they want and both parties walk away happy. We are rendering a service for a commodity that has a lot of meaning both parties and will do our utmost to solve issues when these arise.
How do you benefit from the farming system at Engel & Völkers?
”Farming” is our success and the more the agent focuses the more success is achieved for our buyers and seller. An E&V agent spends time doing research within their areas and they draw up market reports that in turn help their sellers and buyers, landlords and tenants. This platform enables agents to give the right value on properties when doing valuations.
