Why you NEED a REALTOR®!
The homebuying journey can feel a bit overwhelming, especially if this is your first time or it’s been a while since you last purchased a home. Not to worry, that’s exactly what real estate agents are trained to do; navigate and guide you through the process.
REALTORS® are fully educated in the home-buying process, backed by a Real Estate Broker who fully supports the transaction. They also have required state licensing education to stay up to date on the latest processes and are a part of the National Association of REALTORS®, committing themselves to further education and the utmost in ethics. We often say, “Buyers can find a home easily on a number of websites, but closing on that home is the expertise of the REALTOR®“.
