Professionalism in the Athlete Relocation Business

chris-and-jada

Let me share another testimonial with all of you, and then I’ll explain the significance of it regarding your next athlete relocation.

“We couldn’t have been any happier with Ikem and his professionalism throughout our relocation process to LA.  Almost immediately, Ikem and his team provided us with leasing options based upon our requirements. He thoroughly explained the leasing process, attended every showing with us, and provided us with enough information to ultimately make our decision to buy our home.  Ikem, thank you and your team for the amazing work.”  Chris and Jada Paul

I want you to pay attention to several sections of that testimonial.  First, professionalism…..Sportsrelocation.com believes strongly in discreet professionalism.  As a professional athlete, you deserve to be treated with professionalism, and that’s what we provide.

Secondly, we provide options based on your requirements. We have no desire to suggest a home to you that does not meet your needs.  There are far too many homes out there waiting to be leased or purchased, and we are committed to finding the perfect home for you.

Thirdly, we are with you ever step of the way.  Yes, we attend every showing with you.  Yes, we provide all the information you need.  That’s what professionals do for professionals, and that’s what a good athlete relocation agent does.

If you have an athlete relocation in your future, please consider this testimonial we recently received:

“Moving to LA can be quite intimidating but Ike really made our move easy and comforting.  Our place was centrally located and combined the perfect amenities with a secured living environment which was perfect for our taste.  Ike was consistently available when issues arose and was very quick to come up with a solution.  My husband and I were very pleased with the attention we received from him.”  Andrea & Chris Duhon

I want to draw your attention to one particular portion of that wonderful testimonial, the part that says I was consistently available when issues arose.

We understand how daunting it can be to move to a new city, so we take the daunting out of the move, leaving you to settle in, get accustomed to your new area, and concentrate on playing the sport you love.

Important Qualities in Athlete Relocation Business

IMG_2320-e1404177031976

“Those of us in the spotlight learn very quickly who we can trust to manage our affairs.  We need discreet professionalism, and when it comes to leasing properties, I have found Ikem to be very trustworthy.”  Dwayne Carter Lil Wayne

“From Los Angeles to Miami, I look to Ikem and his team to handle my real estate transactions.  He’s got my back and I can appreciate that.”  Cortez Bryant

I do not share those testimonials with you to impress you but rather to point out a couple very important facts about athlete relocation and dealing with celebrities.

Dwayne’s comment highlights the importance of trust and discreet professionalism, two characteristics we pride ourselves on at Sportsrelocation.com.  How else would we stay in this business for over a decade?  Celebrities have to know they can trust their relocation agent.  They want to know that their financial dealings are not going to be splashed across newspapers and that their lives will remain as private as possible.

Cortez brings up the point that Sportsrelocation.com is affiliated in all fifty states and that we can handle real estate transactions anywhere.  He trusts us, he knows we have his back, and that kind of trust is rare in the world of entertainment and professional sports.

When it comes time for your next relocation, go with the people you can trust.  Go with Sportsrelocation.com.

Pro Athlete Real Estate Market is Specialized Niche

yolanda smith sports relocationHow does a professional athlete or celebrity go about finding real estate to buy?   Conversely, how do they go about finding a buyer for their home?

If you think about it, the pro athlete real estate market is a specialized niche.  Since we are talking expensive properties, we are talking about a very small, select few who can buy or sell them.  A professional athlete during the athlete relocation period does not pull out the Sunday Times and look at real estate listings, and they don’t “sell by owner” when they are trying to sell their property.

What it takes is a network of professionals who deal primarily in these types of listings.  It takes a real estate agent who deals exclusively with professional athletes and celebrities.

It takes the pros at Sportsrelocation.com to get the job done.

For over a decade now, Sportsrelocation.com has worked with athlete and celebrities, and our network has grown throughout the sports and entertainment industries.  We know the buyers and we know the sellers.  We know which properties will enter the market soon, and we know who is most likely to sell in the near future.  We have the contacts and we have the expertise.

That’s what a professional athlete does when it is time to buy or sell real estate.

Player Development Once Playing Days are Over

Yes, Sportsrelocation.com is interested in handling all facets of the athlete relocation process, but we do so much more for professional athletes.

What about when an athlete’s playing days are over?  What does he/she do then?  Take a finally-tuned professional athlete who has trained hard and played hard from high school through the professional ranks, and we are talking about fifteen to twenty years of training and competition, and suddenly that all ends…..what are they going to do to fill in that gaping hole that once defined their lives?

Sportsrelocation.com works closely with active and retired professional athletes nationwide in a team effort to help other professional athletes with the transition from active to retired.  We identify resources that can aid in this transition.  We put athletes in touch with professionals who can provide assistance.  We provide internship resources and we tap into our vast networking system.

This player development program allows the professional athlete to learn and prepare for the changes that are about to occur.  In effect we teach them how to channel their talents into new undertakings and find value on and off the field.

What is the Athlete Relocation Process?

IMG_2320-e1404177031976

“I just got traded.  What can you do for me? How does this athlete relocation process work?”

Welcome to the world of athlete relocation.  That was a typical phone conversation in our office at Sportsrelocation.com.  Although many of our clients have a vague idea about what we do, they aren’t sure how it all happens when they hire us to help in their relocation.

So let’s answer that question right now.

The athlete relocation process consists of the following steps:

  • We initiate the client intake process. This consists of meeting with the client and finding out what their specific needs are.
  • We establish a Plan of Action and communicate the proposal with the new client.
  • We coordinate the Plan of Action with the approved Sportsrelocation.com affiliate agent in the respective new city. Since we are affiliated in all fifty states, this is no problem.
  • We identify housing options for the client’s new living arrangements. This is always one of the top priorities.  The rest will follow once we have found suitable living arrangements.
  • We manage and coordinate all ancillary service requests. This is not limited to packing and unpacking household goods, transporting household goods, and transporting cars.

And that is the athlete relocation process.  Basically, in as few words as possible, we take care of practically everything so you can concentrate on the one thing you excel at, namely playing your sport.

How to Determine a Price for Your Home

20140915_083057 (2)

There are so many factors that go into determining the correct price for your home.  There is no simple answer when faced with the question of how to correctly price a home, but there are some guidelines that can be followed.  Let’s take a look at a few of them.

LOCATION:  You have all heard it spoken about real estate, whether you are buying or selling…location, location, location.  A home in San Francisco will most likely be priced higher than a comparable home in Des Moines.  Why?  Desirable location will generally raise the price of a home.  It’s as simple as that.

ECONOMIC CONDITIONS:  Looking back at the recession we just emerged from, it is easy to understand this factor.  A beautiful 5,000 square foot home in a desirable location would be priced lower than market value five years ago than it is today.  The state of the economy affects the laws of supply and demand.  If demand is down because of the economy, then prices will fall.

RISE IN POPULATION:  Simply stated, if the population increases in an area, chances are good that home prices will increase.  Again, it means a rise in demand and that will usually mean a rise in price.

JOB MARKET:  Closely related to the rise in population.  If the job market is healthy, and wages are rising, you can expect the real estate market to be healthy and prices to rise.

SIZE:  In real estate size does matter, but perhaps not in the way you would think.  Most people would think that a bigger home could demand a bigger price, and that is true to a point.  Once you get to mansion size, though, you are basically talking about shrinking the demand population to the point where you have very few buyers.  And as demand shrinks so do prices.

COMPARABLE HOMES:  This is perhaps the biggest factor in pricing a home.  What do similar homes in that area sell for?  Once you have established that, then you can make adjustments to the price based on the individual home you are selling.

Take all these factors into consideration and you have the basis for a good estimate of your selling price.

Work closely with your real estate professional and trust their advice.
