Keith R. Gordon

Keith R. Gordon, broker for Altru® Real Estate with 32 years of experience in Florida. Keith will impart his extensive real estate contract knowledge, negotiation skills, and inspection report acumen to help you negotiate your best deal, close it on time and keep more of your hard earned equity. The art of getting the best price for your home is a combination of knowledge about appraised value and the understanding that there exists an "appraisal price envelope" for any given home. Another key to getting the best price is understanding that envelope and pushing the upper limits of that appraised value. Anyone can negotiate a market deal but that often leaves money on the table. Feel free to read some of testimonials from ALTRU PLATINUM PRO listings.

Can you afford not to have Keith R. Gordon represent you?

Because of our low closing fee and extensive real estate contract knowledge, your bottom line should far exceed the extra costs of the ALTRU PLATINUM PRO listing plan. Our fee is $499 plus 0.875% at close ($3,000 min). You only offer the buyer's agent a commission which is entirely up to you. Most sellers offer 3%.

Local Community Spotlight Marketing plus Realtor.com Showcase, World Properties, Homes.com, Truila, Zillow, and 100's More

When it comes to Internet marketing, we are Internet real estate marketing professionals. We start with our custom local community spotlight landing page which highlights your exact community, subdivision, or condo. We research every detail about your home or condo which draws extra buyers using our advanced search engine marketing. This, coupled with an enhanced listing on Realtor.com, Homes.com, World Properties, and hundreds more real estate websites makes marketing your home through GetMoreOffers.com a powerful Internet experience.

The Art of a deal

Getting people talking is the beginning of getting a deal done. The reason why ALTRU PLATINUM PRO makes your deal happen faster is because Realtors that call us and want to chat about making an offer speak with me. Realtors would rather speak and deal with another agent as opposed to a seller because it allows them to speak more freely about their buyer and what they want. It is all about them which is OK. When I act as your “offer conduit”, I help agents feel comfortable that we can get a deal done and they should bring their offer. I then coach my sellers how best to respond (counter). This happens 9:00am-6:00pm 7 days per week. We never lose a beat and help you get more offers.

East Coast, West Coast, Tampa Bay

Some sellers are concerned that I am headquartered in Tampa Bay and not close to the actual property being sold. Truth is, when I negotiate a "local" Professional deal in Tampa, Clearwater, or St. Pete, it is handled exactly the same way as deals that I do in Naples, Miami, Sarasota, Orlando, The Gold Coast, Jacksonville, Gainesville, or Tallahassee. We Realtors use fax, email, and the phone. No Realtor ever shows up in person and hands us an offer. I am closing a $3.5 million Miami deal and just closed a $564,000 Sarasota deal which I sold over the phone. When it comes to sales and professionalism, I get the job done!

Why a ALTRU PLATINUM PRO listing is better than full-service 6%

The truth is a 6% agent receives nearly 3% commission if another agent is involved, or possibly the entire 6% if there is no other “buyer's agent” involved in getting your home under contract and closed. Their incentive is huge. Is this an altruistic relationship or is this incentive working against you? They get paid a significant amount regardless of your net. They are motivated to reduce your price to get a deal done. Conversely, our incentive is 0.875% at close ($3,000 min) which is transactional in nature. Our goals are to maximize your net and deliver the best marketing, customer service and expert contract negotiations. Honesty, professionalism, and hard work is what we are about.

Price your home correctly with the help of the Broker

Keith R. Gordon will consult with you about the Florida real estate market and what pricing strategies are working best. When it comes to getting the most for your home, Keith's strategy assumes there are 3 buyers for your home right now. Keith's goal is to price your home competitively and draw out the best offer from the possible pool of buyers. Keith believes there is one buyer out there willing to pay more than the rest. To find that buyer, it requires extensive Internet marketing, accurate pricing, and intelligent negotiations.

Is the buyer's agent your friend?

No! They represent their buyer and your home is what they want for the least possible price. Keith will be there to represent you. His expertise will be there every step of the way to ensure the contract is worded correctly, that there are no expenses pushed onto the seller's side that belong to the buyer and we don't engage a buyer that can't close.

The inspection and who is paying for the inspection related repairs?

The buyer pays for the building inspection, mold inspections, and other buyer requested inspections. It is up the buyer's agent to schedule these inspections within the time frames mandated by the contract. Keith's responsibility is to impart his extensive building background and knowledge about inspection reports and reach an amicable settlement for possible repair requests made by the buyer's agent without losing the deal. Each contract has different language relating to how much the seller maybe be responsible for inspection related "warranted items".

Buyer Due Diligence

One of the most important aspects of negotiations is the buyer. Some buyers present "letters of qualification" that are not worth the paper they are written on. Keith will ferret out what buyers are real and the ones that might tie your property up and not close the deal.

Title

The seller decides on which title company to use in the transaction and pays for the title policy in most places. In other locations, the buyer pays for title and has the right to pick the closing agent or title company. Title work is very important. A poor title company can delay a closing. Keith has relationships with the most respected title companies in Florida.

Can a Seller request the buyer to pay all closing costs?

Yes.

Can a buyer request that the seller pay all or a percentage of the closing costs?

Yes. This a typical request when the sales price is $180,000 and less. Especially first time buyers.

Other benefits to a ALTRU PLATINUM PRO Listing…

Once you list your home with Altru® each Realtor® that shows your home will be given special consideration once we have evaluated their “Realtor® etiquette” and buyer skills via our feedback system. When we believe an agent has the right combination of skills, we then include those Realtors® into “your” Agent Activate® pool of available and qualified Realtors®. So when a buyer calls, the best agent will help sell your home and will be paid your "offered" commission, typically 3%. This saves you 50% in commissions!
