I still teach Accounting and Business Education as well as Computer Technology in High School and am a Texas Realtor and am proud to say that I would love to help you find your home but I have to admit, in Burleson, you will find everyone I know in the Real Estate Business to be above reproach. Our personal and Realtor ethics demand that we treat and perform honestly with all customers and clients. As much as I would love to represent you in your home search, there are many more just as honest and willing. Would be my pleasure to assist you in any way possible.
Interview 2-3 agents is my suggestion and see who you feel most comfortable with.
We'd like to be inlcuded in that 2 or 3 you interview and can even give you a list of questions to ask.
You can find them here:
We not only want your business, but that of all your friends, family, and co-workers. We're never going to cut corners to risk your future referals.
I think our JD Power awards for Buyer and Seller satisfaction should give you a start with confidence in our company, but in the end it is not the big company or the small company you have to deal with, but the individual....so you want to be comfortable with the person who will actually help you through the process.
Personally, I have worked for another broker, but I believe in the Keller Williams philosophy, which is God, Family, & Business in that order.
I am an independant agent, a REALTORÂ®, which means I have agreed to uphold a higher standard of ethics.
I agree that greed & dishonesty is a product of our society, ultimately, I believe that laziness is the the common charachteristic you will find within the greedy or dishonest person.
The size of the company is no matter, I encourage you to find a REALTORÂ® to work with, one, which is willing to listen to your goals, needs, & dreams then work hard to match you with the perfect, affordable home. Someone you know & trust. I service the entire DFW area &I am up for the task if you would like to call me to discuss further! Either way-best of luck to you!

your concerns are well founded and based in fact. I can say this because I've witnessed this over the course of my career. However, it matters not the size of the company , be it large (which will typically hire anyone with a pulse and a license) or small (where to I start?) when seeking an honest, competent agent...it has everything to do with properly structuring your interview with agents and making sure you have an out if you find out after the fact that the agent/broker is traditional in their methods, tactics and philosophy.
