In our hyper-connected, internet-accessible world, the ability to search an online database of listings is not confined to realtors.
A good realtor gets out into the community, visits dozens of homes each week, networks with other realtors, listens and acts on his clients' concerns, knows the neighborhoods, schools, transportation options and the strengths and weaknesses of an area or a specific home, as well as the microeconomics and macroeconomics that drive home prices, interest rates, and lending practices, and, of course, helps buyers locate the perfect home.
A great realtor employs all of those skills, and uses constant effort and diligence to fully understand all of the variables that come into play when determining the value of a home, matches the right buyer with the right home, negotiates to get into contract, and stays on top of the countless details throughout the escrow process. A great realtor can recommend many different types of specialized contractors to help sellers prepare their home for sale or provide accurate cost estimates to buyers considering a specific home.
And when the "deal is done," a great realtor does not disappear.
I am always available for you, my client, and to your referrals. I believe real estate is less about "selling" and more about consulting with honesty, integrity, exceptional customer service, hard work, clear and timely communication, and the unyielding commitment my clients have come to expect of me. My clients refer me because they understand the value I add to the buying or selling process while adhering to the highest ethical standards in the industry.
As an Intero Real Estate - Berkshire Hathaway Affiliate realtor, I am aligned with one of the most respected names in real estate to attract buyers locally, nationally, and internationally to the front door of a seller's home, using a wide variety of state-of-the art marketing tools and media exposure, and an unmatched national network of real estate marketing resources.
I look forward to earning your business!
