I think the most common question I get asked is, "why should I use a realtor, I can do this on my own?" While this is very true, you can buy and sell property on your own, let me tell you why you should use a realtor.
First, Realtors are educated, most if not all have countless hours of class and real experience that give them the upper hand when it comes to real estate. It's not something that is taken lightly, we take education courses constantly to insure that we are well versed in the current market and upholding the law. We also go through code of ethics training to make sure that we are holding ourselves to high standard when it comes to handling the public. Anyone can go through real estate school, but only those who have gone on in their education and follow the guidelines can say that they are a REALTOR.
As mentioned above, we are held to a higher standard, we call it our Realtor code of ethics. Every year we take a class to remind our selves that in this business you have to be professional, courteous, kind, and caring. Our code of ethics is pages long, it describes in great detail what we can and can not do. If their is ever a question, we can certainly find the proper way to handle a situation in the code of ethics hand book.
Realtors have benefits! When you choose a realtor to sell your home, we have the power to get it in front of as many people as possible. We have a database that houses the majority of the homes available, and anyone who is a follow realtor has access to that information. We have the power to hold open houses and market them amongst the realtor community, insuring that the most people are aware of your home on the market. We have unlimited contacts and connections, everything from title agencies, lenders, colleagues, and you just never know who knows someone looking to buy your home.
Speaking of resources, Realtors have one for everything, financing, title, lawyers, agents in other states, literally if you need it, we have it. We know who you need to talk to and when, and a good Realtor will tell you when to consult someone else for proper answers. We all work together in order to make sure that we are supplying you with the most accurate information available.
So next time you are thinking about if you should choose a Realtor to handle your real estate needs, remember that Realtors are people that are there to make the ride from or into home ownership smooth and seamless.

"Way to many to mention. We flew down from Ct. and he picked us up on time at Hampton Inn every morning to look at homes for sale. He stayed in touch even after we went back to Ct unable to find a home we loved. Came back again and Conor took us to new development in Tarpon Springs, which we loved and purchased a lot and he helped with keeping in touch with us pictures etc as we had to return to Ct. Conor kept watch over the building process for us. He is kind, compassionate and extremely trustworthy. We can't believe we were fortunate enough to have met him. He is our friend now."
