Thanks, Larry, for emphasizing the importance of working a real estate deal through a Realtor. There are so many details to be figured out, with issues related to financing being the biggest.
Having someone to coordinate efforts with the lender of your choice is key. The more professionals you have working on your behalf, the better.
I would obviously love to be that Realtor. As you can see from the recommendations under my profile, I work tirelessly to help a deal happen if possible. In fact, my newest recommendation is from a local loan manager with whom I worked very closely to pull together a deal that had several obstacles, but we worked as a team and closed last week.
