Find a Realtor who is going to find you the best deal and best home. I (personally) have an issue with the post that is buying you. As a professionally trained negotiator, (20+ years Army Intell, Interrogation, Counter Intelligence Agent, Law Enforcement, Etc..) I find it amusing when someone says, hire me, I am a professional in my field, and will NEGOTIATE the best deal for you, and oh.....I'm going to give you this and this and some of that....please please please call me...pretty please.
It reeks of desperation and that is not what you want on your side! (Here come all the thumbs downs for that one)
So here is how I tell folks to pick the best REALTOR.
Who cuts your hair? ...How did you find him/her?
Who is your Dentist? .......How did you find him/her?
Doctor? ...How did you find him/her?
Attorney? ...How did you find him/her?
See a pattern...?
Why should a REALTOR be any different. Ask your friends who have purchased properties. I am sure you will find a GREAT REALTOR. In fact, I know you will.
