If you are considering selling or buying a home there are many reasons why you should work with a realtor. Selling and buying a home can feel like an overwhelming exercise. There is so much to do and know. A realtor can spend the time to educate you and ensure that critical steps are not missed.

In addition, working with a realtor can save you time and money. Working with a realtor gives you the advantage of dealing with a market expert who can guide you through the complexity of contracts, negotiations, and inspections.

4 Tips when selecting a Realtor:

2. You should feel comfortable with their professional work style and knowledge

3. You should feel that they are 100% committed and dedicated to making your real estate dreams come true

4. Interview multiple agents and go with your instincts – to select the one that fits best with your needs and personality

Questions to Ask:
