I feel your pain. I went through the same thing until I discovered The Wilkins Group. Burt and Emily Wilkins are fantastic. I have worked with Emily Wilkins in a search for an investment property in Ocean City. She is highly motivated, detail oriented, knows the market, and will answer all questions and inquiries in a very timley and knowledgable fashion. You can find The Wilkins Team at Goldcoast, Sothebys International Realty in Ocean City. They are really a top notch outtit. Good luck!

Wow! That's the 1st time I've heard that one. Ocean City has dozens of aggressive Realtors. I have been in the real estate business in Ocean City for decades, and have made a very good living....responsiveness to my customers and clients is the most important factor in my success. The law of averages will tell you that there is good and bad in all walks of life. If you want a good , attentive realtor , ask for references before you get started with someone, check their track record. The real estate industry has a steady flow of new licensee's who last 1 or 2 years(because they don't have a clue). I will always take on new customers, and take good care of every one of them...go ahead , check my references...there are hundreds. If I can't help you, I will be glad to hook you up with a person who can.

Hi, Erin. It's a shame you have had such a difficult time. I am happy to assist you. I work mostly with buyers so am very aware of their unique needs from the initial internet searches, to visiting homes, to market research (in order to arm buyers with knowledge), to negotiating, contract, and all the way through each step to closing. For Realtors that deal with buying and selling homes daily, it can be easy to lose track of the client's individual needs, but I make it my highest priority to take the time required to make home buyers and sellers feel comfortable in all aspects of the purchase process. I like to empower my clients with knowledge and give them some control in the process, since after all, it is their home purchase. In that vein, I would like to offer you the opportunity to get in the driver's seat of your initial home search. Please visit my website at http://YourShoreTownAgent.com and log into "My Home Finder". From there, you can set up your search for the perfect home with all of the criteria you wish. If you would prefer to have me set up a search for you, I am happy to do so, just be in touch. I look forward to working with you.

Building Relationships. Realizing Dreams.

Erin, as a home buyer, I assume you want new listing updates. Let me first say this. Not all agents are tech savvy and setting up an auto email campaign is not rocket science. You just have to find an agent that knows what he/she is doing. Maybe you have to interview a few agents and see who is a good match for you. Oftentimes, buyers and sellers alike will work with the first agent they meet and not be selective. BE selective. It matters when you are working with an experienced agent that knows the inside and out of a community and their MLS, forms, etc.

If you share with me your wish list, I can find an agent that knows what he/she is doing.
