Sellers and Buyers

The value a Realtor brings in the transfer of real estate is significantly misunderstood.  Without a Realtor involved most sellers sell for less (avg 16%) and buyers often misunderstand contract fine print or over look some criteria that they regret later.  While these things can still happen with a Realtor involved the incidence is much less frequent.

I am a full service real estate consultant (see list of services below).  I’ve personally bought and sold over a hundred properties locally and invested both domestically and internationally.  As a Realtor I was in the top 3% of all list & sell agents in 2008.

More importantly, I put your objectives first and go at your pace.  I still remember working with a Realtor who did not care about me when I bought my first house at 27.  I never want to be THAT Realtor!
