How did you decide to become a broker?
At first my curiosity
led me to the unknown to date field of trade in Bulgaria, and then the pleasure
of being in contact with clients and the satisfaction of results “left” me in
2019, still doing this.
What is the situation in the real estate market?
Extremely dynamic but also quite balanced. For the time being it is in the perfect middle point.
Is there a need for change in the brokers’ practices in Bulgaria?
Of utmost importance for the improvement of brokers’ practices is to regulate the broker-client relations during the first meetings in order to increase confidence in the broker.
Do you think that
technology can change the broker’s model in the near future?
Yes, but it will increase our role as consultants for the selection of the right property. Often clients are seeking an objective opinion and advice from their trusted consultant, and this is something that no system will not be able do with the same precision.
What are the most common mistakes of real estate brokers?
What are the most common mistakes of the users of brokers’ services?
They do not listen to the advice on how to give the property a more “marketable” look - sometimes even a basic cleaning and removal of clutter from the rooms is essential for the sale of the property.
What do you like the most in the broker’s profession?
The fast pace of the process, communication with clients and colleagues and, of course, the dynamics.
What makes a real estate broker really successful?
Objectivity, honesty, foresight, patience, daily information about market situation.
What is Galardo for you?
United team and daily improvement.
What are the places you would show to a person who is visiting Sofia for the first time?
Sometimes I see Sofia as an immense place, but if I really have to choose a few places, I would take them to the most obvious ones - the building of Sofia University, St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral, the pedestrian zone of Vitosha Boulevard, the park of Danov in Iztok and the National Assembly.
