How many investments in your life will be greater than the investment you make in your home? Not only are you investing considerable money (most residential home sales exceed $100,000 today), you also have quite an investment in personal time, resources, and the considerable emotional expense of both you and your family. Shouldn't this investment be a priority and be handled professionally?
For instance, if you had a tax or legal issue involving that much money, would you consider handling it without the assistance of a CPA or an attorney? I think not. The small investment made in professional service far outweighs the risk involved to do-it-yourself blindly. Shouldn't the same hold true for your home purchase or sale? Wouldn't it be foolish to squander your time and resources; sacrifice emotions and possibly waste your money just to save a modest professional fee?
Few professionals offer the dedication, depth of service and considerable added value that you will realize from your Realtor.® Only real estate licensees who are members of the National Association of Realtorsâ may display the Realtor ® logo.Realtors® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly and they subscribe to a strict code of ethics.

Due diligence, in-depth research, vast services, information and data, guidance, recommendation, and negotiation are key to the premier value you receive from your Realtorâ partner. You can expect your Realtorâ to:Counsel with you to prepare your personalized buying or selling plan Help you determine your buying power and/or market position Guide you to legal, financing and property evaluation options Assist you in your selection process -or - Help you to effectively prepare your home for sale Market your home using state of the art technology, effective techniques and efficient systems Work with you diligently and tirelessly until you find or sell your home Provide access to vast resources and tools that will assist in your home search or sale Prepare legal documents and facilitate the buying or selling transactionProvide leadership in negotiation and settlement to create a win-win agreement Facilitate the entire process and guide you through closing, move in or move out Provide extensive relocation services, if needed Continue as your real estate partner after the sale to ensure a smooth move and provide continuing resources and service long into the future Realtors® have access to the entire published real estate market and all resources, skill and tools necessary to serve you effectively and efficiently.
