People tend to do business with those folks they know, like and trust.
I am not sure where I first heard this line but it has stayed with me for many a year.
And it explains alot. I have heard many times that I am going to do business with xxx. She just got her Real Estate license and our kids play soccer together. It may not make sense in the long term but if it works for you. Great.
You really should interview several agents and do business with the one who meets most of your criteria. I can provide a list of questions that needs to be discussed if you contact me.
You can trust me to keep your needs front and center in order to find your perfect home.
