Buying or selling real estate can be one of the biggest decisions one can make. Choosing a realtor to assist you with this important process is very important as well. There are many good realtors available to represent you in this process. Asking yourself these important questions as you consider selecting a realtor may be helpful; Is this someone I trust and am comfortable working with? Are they going to represent me in a professional manner? Do they bring a broad base of experience to assist me with my goals? Are they concerned about me, or just the contract and the commission? If the answer to any of these is no, then hopefully you will consider John to represent you.
