Get to know Bessie Thrasher
I have been selling real estate for 28 years. I was a multimillion dollar producer with ABR, GRI,CRS designations in St Louis Missouri and moved to Tampa Florida in 2003 and now in 2010 I am back to St Louis selling in both states. Real estate is good all the time because there are always people wanting to sell and buy. This market challenges us but so did the market in 1982 with 14% interest rates and a bottoming out in the market in 1989.While Florida and St Louis have very different markets, their similarity is you can get a terrific buy in either market place. Many of my St Louis homeowners are buying second homes in Florida. I love going to the NAR convention to learn new ideas and meeting other agents to whom I refer my clients when they move from here.
The greatest compliment is when my clients refer their friends or relatives to me. That means I have done a professional job and people are happy. It is not all about the buck but in making sure the buyer or seller is treated well. It does help that I have a lot of knowledge and experience however, I am relentless in making sure the buyer or seller is happy.
The Tampa Bay area is a wonderful place to work and live. What a vibrant city. The second home market is alive and well with many great buys. I was born and raised in St Louis ( a great family area) and moved to Tampa in 2003 then I moved back to St Louis in 2010. Now I selling in both states, taking advantage of the great buys in Florida. Since I have been selling 28 years, I deal with everyone from first time home buyers to savy investors. They all need real professional help and someone who is knowledgeable of all the ins and outs of buying and selling real estate.
