It's important to work with an experienced agent that has knowledge of how to navigate the current market. Buying or selling your home is one of the most crucial financial decisions you will make in your lifetime. We know that everyone has many choices when it comes to choosing a Realtor, just make sure you ask the right questions and hire a competent one! For example, there is a choice to review offers on receipt or have a review date. Every community is different, but currently the best way to guarantee the highest and best net profit is to have a review date. If your agent says otherwise, ask why! We care about others and want what is best, even if it's not working with us. We're here to help and are happy to consult on any issue.
