He's Not Forrest Gump, but Mr. Woodstock Definitely Goes the Extra Mile!
By Cyndi Braun
When selecting a real estate agent, you could call a friend-of-a-friend, someone who sold a house in your neighborhood, or the guy whose picture appears on interstate billboards. You might search for an agent online. But how do you choose the best of the bunch?
A good way to choose the best agent is to consider local expertise, commitment to clients, and experience.
If you live in or around Woodstock, the choice is clear — Dana Possick, also known as Mr. Woodstock, your local expert.
Specializing in Woodstock
Whatever the issue, the best solution is to call a specialist. When you need help with taxes, you call an accountant. If you have a legal problem, you call an attorney. If you need help buying or selling a home in this area, you call Mr. Woodstock.
Possick has shown, listed, sold, rented, and managed homes in nearly every Woodstock neighborhood. In the past 17+ years, he has sold more than 700 homes. Early in his career, he learned that if he focused on one geographic area, he could offer clients a level of expertise and service that other agents couldn’t match.
“Some Realtors go everywhere, but I’d rather be an expert in this specific area. I know the ins and outs of each neighborhood. I know the houses, the roads, and the traffic patterns. I know the construction of the homes. I know the entire community,” said Possick. “If you’re buying, you want a specialist who knows what neighborhoods will suit your needs best. And if you’re selling, you want an agent who knows how to sell your home and community.”
It should come as no surprise that Possick’s An Introduction to Woodstock, Georgia and Mr. Woodstock promo video has more than four thousand views on YouTube.
Going the Extra Mile
By going the extra mile with his clients, Possick offers a level of service beyond expectations. He prides himself on his attention to detail and availability. He’s easy to reach by phone or email, and he encourages clients to reach out to him before, during, and after a transaction since his goal is to be a lifelong resource, not just a salesman.
When working with buyers, he helps them make good long-term decisions by pointing out potential issues while viewing homes. He tells clients to consider the practical before the aesthetic.
“I don’t say, ‘Look how pretty that is? Can you see yourself drinking coffee on this beautiful deck?’ Instead, I look at what future expenses might be, and I ask questions like, ‘How old is that air conditioner?’” said Possick. “I want to protect my buyers from buying somebody else’s problem.”
Clients selling their homes benefit from Possick’s marketing background, real estate experience, and knowledge of Woodstock. But, most of all, they benefit from his desire to help them through every step of the process.
“When you sell a house, you’re marketing, branding, advertising, and negotiating, but you’re also serving as a liaison for the homeowner,” said Possick. “I am here to serve and guide my clients. I am a counselor, concierge, and coach.”
Guiding Through Experience
Possick has a bachelor’s degree in business. He earned his real estate license in 2001 and his broker’s license in 2004. A life member of the Cherokee County Board of Realtors, he earned the Platinum Award the last three years. He has continually been a top producer in Woodstock since 2003.
He excels as both a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. Clients include all ages and incomes, from starter homes to investment properties to luxury homes.
“I want to help people find the best house for them. I want to help homeowners prepare their house and market it,” said Possick. “When it comes down to it, I just want to help people.”
When Is the Right Time to Call a Realtor?
If you’re interested in buying a home, contact an agent as soon as you decide you want to buy a home, even if it’s a year away. Waiting until you have already found a home you want to see is a big mistake. There are lots of steps that should be taken months in advance.
If you’re planning to sell your house in the next year, contact your Woodstock expert now to do a walk-through and put together a to-do list, so you aren’t overwhelmed later.
If you have any real estate related questions, it’s always the right time to call a realtor.
Real estate transactions are like a box of chocolates...You never know what you’re going to get. But, with Dana Possick, aka Mr. Woodstock, you’ll get a local expert who is committed to his clients and has years of experience.
