Why hire the Ramon Sanchez Real Estate Group instead of an AFA?


In case you don’t know, AFA stands for “average frustrated agent.” Why do we call them average frustrated agents? Because according to the National Association of Realtors, the average agent sells no more than three to six homes a year. Another statistic is this: their average income for the year 2015 was just $39,000. 


From that $39,000, they also have to pay taxes and expenses to run their business. Those two things alone can cut that $39,000 in half, leaving them in reality with just under $20,000 at the end of the year. We, on the other hand, don’t have that problem. We’re self-employed, so we get paid 100% on all our commissions.


If you’re a seller, there are three specific reasons to hire us:


We have an 80% hiring rate with sellers. When we meet with 10 sellers, eight of them end up hiring us. Once I go through my presentation and show my potential clients how to certify and price their home, they believe my team and I are the ones to get the job done. 


“Our traditional selling skills get homes sold.”


We use traditional selling skills. For every 43 contacts that we make, we generate a sale. That ratio comes from knowing how to prospect and garner referrals. We still utilize open houses, marketing, and a $3,000-a-month budget for our sellers, but traditional selling skills are what get homes sold. 

I always speak the truth. You might not like it, but I’m always going to speak the truth to you. The reason other sellers wouldn’t hire me is usually either because they’re not realistic about their price or they’re just trying to test the market. 






For buyers, there are also three specific reasons to hire us:

We have a 90% hiring rate with buyers. When we meet with 10 buyers, nine of them end up hiring us. The ones who don’t usually do so because they either can’t qualify or they’re dealing with some kind of legal entanglement.

We provide both a homebuyer guide and a buyer presentation. From these two pieces of literature, we teach our buyers real estate 101. 

Traditional selling skills. I know, I already said this, but it applies to buyers as well. We’re always on the phone calling homeowners to see if they want to take an offer from one of our buyers.


Whether you’re a buyer or seller, I’d love for you to get in contact with me so I can prove to you why my team and I are the best.

I look forward to speaking with you!
