Listing agents do so much more than just listing or marketing your home - although those are very valuable and important parts of our job. We also help our clients navigate the closing process. Reviewing preliminary title reports, coordinating inspections and appraisal appointments, septic certifications, negotiating inspection and appraisal outcomes, maintaining complete communication between the lender, escrow, and agents, assisting in a smooth transition after the property closes and records. We are also a source for all the people you don't know, such as: insurance agents, lenders, inspectors, home warranty providers, as well as a host of other community vendors to help you settle into your new location.
In addition to all of these things, listing agents are often counselors and sounding boards. The process can be stressful, so our job is to limit your stress throughout all aspects of the process. :-)
