Did you know that from start to finish there are more than 50 specific due dates and tasks on an average real estate transaction checklist? That means working with an organized and educated professional real estate agent when purchasing a home is extremely important. From pre-qualification to contract to close, I make sure my clients stay on track and get the help they need to make purchasing a home a smooth and hassle-free process. 


Whether purchasing a resale or a new construction home, there are many key reasons that a buyer needs to work with a professional real estate agent. The top 5 include:

  1. Real estate agents have access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) which is not available to the public. The homes you see on sites like Zillow and Realtor.com are not always up-to-date, and many times are already under contract by the time you see them online. Your agent has insider information and can see notes on the property that are confidential and not disclosed on consumer websites.

  2. When you work with an agent in a single agent relationship, their fiduciary responsibility is to you. That means you have an expert who is looking out for you and is contractually bound to do everything in their power to protect you.

  3. Your agent will help you coordinate the details, from finding a home, negotiating a price, writing a contract, submitting an offer, and complying with all legal regulations so that you don't have to worry about those things.

  4. Your agent will be your one point of contact to assist you through the entire process. There are many steps when buying a home including financing, inspections, the appraisal, shopping for insurance, transferring utilities, coordinating with the title company, and doing a final walk through.

  5. There is NO UPFRONT COST TO YOU to use a real estate agent when you are the buyer because sellers pay all real estate commissions. This applies to new construction as well!

  4. You'll receive personal, one-on-one attention and can get a hold of me easily by text, email, or phone call.
