It’s important that you choose an experienced agent who is there for you. Your agent should be actively finding you potential homes, keeping you informed of the entire process, negotiating furiously on your behalf, and answering all of your questions with competence and speed.
First, find an agent who represents you and not the seller. This is beneficial during the negotiation process. If you are working with a buyer’s agent, he or she is required not to tell the seller of your top choice. In addition, he or she is also focused on getting you the lowest asking price.
Also, when you use a buyer’s agent, you will see more properties. Not only are they plugged into their Multiple Listing Service, but they are also actively finding homes that are listed as FSBO, or homes that sellers are thinking about listing.
Dawns is a wonderful Realtor and property manager. She helped us buy our house and when we moved we asked her to help rent the house. We've known her since 2009, and have had nothing but good experiences with her. She made the rental process very smooth. If you need someone who knows the area, the local market, and is professional she's your lady.Jennifer Troutman Morrelli
