47 Doubling Road Under Contract: Chris Fountain Again!

Great Scott! Did I read that headline correctly? Yes friends, it is true, broker Chris Fountain has done still another deal as his streak continues uninterupted. This time it’s

47 Doubling Road.

Lately it’s beginning to feel like he’s the only one selling stuff!

Chris’s latest triumph, 47 Doubling. Started at $3.395M, reduced to $2.995M, now has contract. Pictured: maid’s quarters, lower level (this is one FANCY place!)

  1. It’s like I keep telling my wife – every [Chris Fountain] blog entry is like having a personal conversation with his customers (and internet buddies). As a potential customer, by the time you meet him, you know him like an old friend (or hate him if you’re a useless liberal :). It’s a great business model in a industry where your opinion is your only added value.

      You had me all the way to the line: ” Its a great business model in a industry where your opinion is your only added value.”
      The broker’s opinion is certainly a component of the value added, but EXPERIENCE is the most important contribution. The reason direct (no broker involvement) deals usually fall apart is because there was no one there to put out the inevitable fires that pop up every time human beings transact with each other. Cars and collectibles? Fine, sell ’em yourself. Property? Use a broker.

  2. In the handful of real estate transactions I’ve been involved with in the past few years, each were made worse by brokers on both sides. One was such an idiot the principal dealt with me directly and bypassed his own broker. Moral of story is choose your broker wisely. These Fountain guys at least seem to know what they’re doing!

    • Anon:
      Aw, shucks (blushing)…but yes, I too find myself amazed when I discover that the broker on the other side is an actual hindrance to the deal. In defense of my trade, I will say that most are not. You want and expect your broker to represent your interests, but if he/she “protects” you, the seller, from low bids, or, in the case of representing a buyer, encourages extremely low bids that end up going nowhere, time after time, then that broker is a useless obstacle.
