Finding and keeping that top-notch REALTOR®

When searching for a REALTOR® online, CONTACT TONYA PEEK AND TIFFANY SHARKEY FOR ALL YOUR NORTH DALLAS REAL ESTATE NEEDS 972-977-2254.There are some suggestions to help you find that true professional who will make all the difference for you:

  • Does the Web site offer adequate information about listed properties? Is it updated often? Are the agent and/or broker's office contact information readily available?
  • E-mail the agent/office and request specific information. You should expect a response within 24 hours.
  • Once an online relationship is established, request via e-mail that the agent call you or call the agent/office yourself to get more information. When you're comfortable, make an appointment to meet face to face.
  • Please keep in mind that good, professional REALTORS® are in demand and very busy. Providing advance notice of your needs and schedule will help you take full advantage of their expertise and services in a timely manner.

We want to be able to provide you with the full range of our professional skills, so communication is essential. To make the best use of everyone's time, buyers will be asked to obtain pre-approval before beginning the home-searching process. Also, you might want to ask about buyer's representation. This makes for a true REALTOR®-client relationship and gives REALTORS® the ability to advise you with their professional opinion once negotiations begin.

Be prepared to view a range of homes, including some in addition to the ones you've previewed online, because the REALTOR® will be knowledgeable and have access to more information about the market. Almost always, your REALTOR® will be able to find homes meeting your criteria that you weren't aware of. In short, a good REALTOR® will listen carefully to your needs, wants and time requirements, and weigh them accordingly to find you the best home for your money.
