The interview with Giacinto Forastefano
You have been awarded “best agent” in March. What is your secret behind repeatedly winning this award?
It is only thanks to very focused work. In addition, it helps to stay true to one’s values. In my case those would be absolute reliability as well as trustworthiness. But I think it is also partly due to the fact that I love what I do. I have real passion for my job. My customers can feel that and at the end of the day, it pays off.
What do your customers appreciate the most?
Above all, my customers appreciate my efficiency and competency as well as the fact that I am available around the clock. They are satisfied as it never takes too long before their properties are sold and as I always have an open ear for them.
What are the skills that a real estate agent needs in order to succeed in today’s market?
Above all, real estate agents need to be customer-oriented. This means that they need to be able to listen, they need to be trustworthy and they need to keep their promises. This furthermore entails being transparent and always acting proactively rather than reacting. It is also important to have an extensive regional network and to be well established. But most important of all is the willingness to always give 1,000%. My personal motto: “Nothing is impossible.”
Why have you joined RE/MAX?
I was sold by the overall package. With RE/MAX, you are part of an extensive network, and this cooperation allows me to offer my clients excellent full service.
How has your everyday work been affected by the corona pandemic?
More than anything else, the corona pandemic leads of an increased amount of work but other than that nothing has really changed for me or my team. We keep working just like before ...
What’s the current property market in the Oberbaselbiet like? What developments do you expect for the year?
Currently, there are less properties available in our region as we are still feeling the effects of the Covid months March to July/August of last year. In those months we did not receive any new commissions as customers were noticeably anxious and none of us knew what to expect. This is why many customers did not want to invite anyone into their homes. Other than that the development is really positive and we will keep doing our best in order for our two offices to gain more market shares.
What is your advice for property owners who are considering selling their property?
I would definitely advise them to do it now rather than waiting much longer. Currently, there are not many properties available on the market but there is a high demand, making this the ideal time to sell a property at the best possible price. We are happy to advise anyone thinking of selling. Just contact us for a free and noncommittal consultation.
