An Agent’s Worth!

In an era where Google is a verb and Twitter a world-recognized noun, the Internet is everyone’s go-to for practically any need. However, some things will always require the human touch, like the home buying and selling process. Real estate transactions only happen when capable professionals — like your Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices agent — navigate clients through the intricacies of a transaction with attention to detail and care.

For Buyers:

As a buyer in today's confusing real estate market, it is important to have an agent looking out for you and providing you with all the tools and guidance to help you make the right decisions. All of my buyers are given 'Client Portal Access' to the MLS system (the same system realtors use) and the option of receiving a 'Real Time, Direct Feed' of properties from the MLS system, of the newest listings on the market that meet your specific criteria. This tool has proven to give my buyers a competitive advantage over other buyers, by learning about new listings and price changes quicker than many other buyers that use third party systems.

A Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices agent will:

  • Be available to show homes on your schedule.
  • Answer questions and keep you informed about relevant market updates.
  • Research and preview homes to eliminate those that don’t fit your requirements and highlight those that do.
  • Make the house-hunting experience easier by scheduling showings and providing you with transportation to appointments, if necessary.
  • Explain the advantages and disadvantages of each property you visit, and provide up-to-date information about the neighborhood including the school district, infrastructure and amenities.

For Sellers:

If you are considering selling, the first step is to request a Comparative Market Analysis. In short, this is a snapshot of the current market condition. More specifically, what your home would likely sell for in the current market conditions. This is a FREE service offered upon request with NO OBLIGATION to list!

To request a meeting to evaluate your home please contact me today!

A Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices agent will:

  • Take you step-by-step through the home selling process.
  • Answer questions and keep you informed about relevant market updates.
