One of the most important parts of selling your home—besides finding the right price—is getting the right buyers through the door. A skilled agent will be able to use their full arsenal of marketing resources, including social media profiles, real estate databases, print advertisements, local contacts, websites, and more, getting as many eyes on your property as possible.

If you’re a buyer, you may not think marketing resources apply to you. But since we have connections with other realtors in the area, we can often get the inside scoop on which homes are being listed well-before they hit the market!

Skilled Negotiations

If something comes up during the inspection or you run into an issue with the closing date, you’ll need to negotiate with the other parties involved. Oftentimes, this doesn’t just mean the buyer or seller, but also their agent, attorney, lender, and more.

During negotiations, it’s crucial to have a skilled realtor on your side. Not only will they always be representing your best interests, but they can also remove their emotions from the equation, keeping things professional at all times.
