Tuesday Tactical: 3 Objection Handlers for High-End Homeowners w/Michael LaFido

The luxury market is largely insulated from economic shifts, so there has never been a better time to break into the space. But many agents often feel like the luxury market is high stakes, especially when they are faced with objections. 


The only way to handle objections effectively is to prepare for them in advance. If we can go into appointments with sellers knowing how to respond, we can position ourselves as the obvious choice for the listing.


What are some of the common objections raised by sellers, and how can we respond to them?


On this episode, Founder and CEO of the Luxury Listing Specialist Designation (LUXE) and host of the Luxury Listing Specialist Podcast, Michael LaFido, returns to the show to discuss 3 common objections and how to handle them. 


Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode 


How to handle the experience objection

Agents new to the luxury market are often worried about being asked if they’ve sold a high-end property before. If not, the best response is to leverage agents in our networks who have sold luxury homes.


How to handle an objection about local knowledge

Often, sellers will ask agents if they’ve sold properties in their area before. If we aren’t local, it’s a good idea to have testimonials and past videos on hand to show the value we bring.


What we can do about price objections

When a seller has been given an unrealistic selling price by another agent, they’re likely to object to a lower suggestion from us. Combat this by asking the seller to have their home appraised.
