Why You Need a Real Estate Agent

With the wealth of information and resources online about buying and selling homes today, you may be wondering if it’s really necessary to use a real estate agent.

Sure, you may be able to save on commission, but one small misstep in the process may end up costing you unimaginable frustration, and unexpected financial costs. And you won’t want to take any chances when legal contracts and significant amounts of money are on the line.

Agents deal with real estate transactions and these types of legally binding agreements all the time and we’re here to hold your hand through the entire process- from getting your home market ready to eventually closing the deal.

Here are 5 reasons you should consider working with an agent:

We take care of the work for you.

Buying or selling a home takes a lot of time and energy. More often than not, searching for the perfect place, or finding the best offer can turn into a full-time job. Luckily, that’s what I’m here for.

It’s my responsibility to handle the research, answer all the emails and phone calls, make appointments on your behalf and even read through all the contracts and paperwork. I’m here to take care of all the tedious, often time consuming work to make your life easier.

We know real estate like the back of our hand.

As a licensed real estate professional, it’s my job to know the industry inside and out. Real estate transactions involve a lot of moving parts and at times can get pretty tricky. I’m here to make sure that the process goes smoothly and that we avoid any potential bumps in the road.

We’ve got contacts.

Not only do I have access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), a database housing property listings in your area from various agents and brokers, but I also work regularly and have formed relationships with home inspectors, lenders, professional stagers, and even a neighborhood handyman. Whatever needs attention, I know someone who can help!

We’re natural negotiators.

I know the local market and won’t stop the negotiations until we’ve settled on a fair deal. I have a good idea of what’s reasonable to request on either end and can help advise you to avoid anything that may kill the deal.

I’m here to work as a middleman, representing your interests and making sure both parties are satisfied in the end. If necessary, I’ll even take the fall and be the “bad-guy” in the transaction, so that you don’t get personally involved.

We’ve got your best interest in mind.

As a real estate agent, I’m bound by law to put my client’s interests ahead of my own. And I do this not just because I have to, but also because I want to. It’s my job to make sure that you’re happy with the final deal. I base my business and my well-being on the satisfaction of my clients, counting on your referral and repeat business.
