The Importance of Selecting Your Real Estate Agent
~Scott Gordon Realty Inc.
Working with the right Real Estate agent can save you hours of hard work, difficult negotiations and possibly heartbreak. Educated Realtors like those at Scott Gordon Realty and Exclusive Estates assist in the buying process ensuring a smooth transaction by negotiating with the sellers, keeping track of deadlines and due dates. In cases of multiple offers on a home, one missed deadline and your dream home could slip away.
With many years working with buyers and sellers a good Realtor can help point you in the best direction for your home purchase. You may possibly be in need of a single family home for your growing family, a vacation home or a condo to accommodate your busy lifestyle. An educated Realtor knows about local market conditions, neighborhood locations or other specialized factors that are important in the decision making process. A good Realtor takes the time to listen to your needs and adjust the home search accordingly.
One of the first things to consider when searching for a Realtor is the kind of home you are looking for. An agent specializing in acreage and horse farms would probably not be the best suited to help you find your vacation Beachfront home or condo. When searching for your new home or vacation home in Palm Beach County Scott Gordon Realty and Exclusive Estates agents are the best in the industry and have the experience and expertise in Oceanfront and Country Club properties to assure a smooth transaction.
Start your search for an agent utilizing several different routes: ask friends, family or associates for their personal recommendations, talk with the Realtors at well known and respected agencies like Scott Gordon Realty or Exclusive Estates and finally look at what agencies are selling the homes in the niche you’re searching for.
Set up interviews with a few agents, listen to your gut feeling; searching for a home can sometimes be a long process and you want to feel comfortable working with your agent. Avoid high pressure agents, explain what you’re looking for and ask what they feel the best strategy would be. Their concern and dedication to your home search is crucial.
Experience is also important but do not discount a newer agent with a higher level of motivation and commitment. A bonus to using a new excited agent is you can be sure if they don’t know the answer, they will go the extra length to find out.
Look for an agent with a strong team and supportive Broker behind them. Scott Gordon Realty’s sales team in Manalapan is supported by Broker Scott Gordon. Exclusive Estates managing partner and Realtor Jeffrey Ray supports the Palm Beach office.
Always make sure you’re working with a licensed REALTOR- A realtor is a member of the national association of Realtors (NAR). These agents agree to be held to a higher standard of practice known as the REALTOR Code of Ethics.
Best of Luck in the Search for Your New Home!
