Purchasing a home may very well be the largest investment you will ever make.   A
Realtor is there to offer opinions, advice and expertise.  To attain this level of
service a Brokerage Agreement is required.  A Realtor is also there to assist you
with negotiation , the writing of contracts and special stipulations.  They are trained
in the legal terms of the contract and have access to many resources.

During the process you will be guided every step of the way in searching for a
home, inspections, appraisal, insurance and home warranty to name a few.  Your
Realtor is also there to resolve issues that arise and move you to the closing.

The difference between a Realtor and a Real Estate Agent is that Realtors are a part
of the National Association of Realtors.  They endorse a strict code of ethics which
requires them to uphold a higher level of knowledge in the buying and selling of real
estate.  They are obligated to treat all parties of the transaction honestly.
