Choosing Your Realtor

Real Estate agents are quick to point out that home ownership represents the biggest financial investment most people ever make. So choosing the right real estate agent can make a critical difference.

A good agent will see that you are pre-qualified to buy before taking you on home tours and filter the listings for homes that meet your specific interests. An agent should help buyers determine what they can afford by introducing them to a home loan officer and get them pre qualified.

Good agents do not merely put a seller's home into the listings and put up a sign, they have a marketing plan and many ideas about how to aggressively market a home and find buyers. An agent should work hard for you when you are not there. The agent should be prepared with reports of what other homes in your neighborhood are selling for. An agent should be frank about the value of a seller's home. An agent should prepare sellers for buyers' many expectations and potential negotiations.

More than ever before real estate agents are responsible to know their listings and be aware of the laws to protect clients from bad decisions. Look for an agent who notices everything, supports inspections and has a quick grasp of housing regulations.

I look forward to providing you with the best real estate services available. After all, you deserve the best.
