Benefits of Hiring a Veteran Realtor
A large amount of research goes into what home a person will purchase or how much a seller could get for their home. Why not put the same amount of time and thoughtfulness into selecting your Realtor? This is one of the most expensive investments many will make in their lifetime. Using an old college buddy or a friend of a friend just because you have an old relationship or are an acquaintance, may not be the best move. Poor communication, inability to negotiate effectively, lack of market knowledge, not pricing your home properly, mis-advising, repair experience, or just not having their license long enough to know what they're doing are just a few of the catastrophes that could ensue and potentially cost you thousands.
It is highly advised that you hire a licensed agent who comprehends your goals, wants, needs, and expectations for performance. If your personalities don't click, there can often be a disconnect between what a buyer/seller expects or prioritizes and what the Realtor provides or caters. It is very important to interview Realtors whether you are buying or selling to make sure you are being heard and acknowledged by your hired professional.
