FINDING THE RIGHT REALTOR FOR YOUR “DREAM HOME”
Finding the “perfect agent” is very import when buying or selling property, which is probably the most expensive item you will ever own. It makes the difference between a smooth graceful experience vs. a long, disjointed upsetting experience. There seems to be a bit of a perception that getting a realtor is like picking out a piece of jewelry…”just someone I like”. Granted, you want to like your realtor but real estate and lending today is a tortuous path. I can accurately say that 20 per cent of the deals go straight forward and done; the other 80 per cent have little hiccups, medium hiccups and/or large hiccups. This is when you know that you made the right decision getting a very knowledgeable, experienced realtor. With 15 years of experience as a realtor, I offer you an expertise that only a small per cent of realtors achieve. Fifteen years as a realtor is hard to find and represents 5 % of the general real estate agents.

As the saying goes, knowledge is power. In real estate, when buying or selling the most expensive item of your life, those words were never more true. Yes, get an agent you like, definitely. But, you want the knowledge and expertise the gets the job done no matter what the hurdles. You do not want someone that digs their head in the sand or experiments to determine how to fix a situation. This is your life, this is your money and most of all, this is your treasured possession. Get the job done right!
