Why Work With a Real Estate Agent?

My experience working with both buyers and sellers naturally evolved into a realization that my approach is very personal. As agents we have tools and processes in place to assist clients in achieving their real estate goals however, I learned in my early years of real estate that my clients rely on me to be their voice, to provide them a stake in their personal journey. Conversations and information gathering help me understand the individual goals of my clients. Sharing my past experiences, what is proven successful and examples where I had to get a little more creative, brings my clients to an elevated playing field. My value added is providing to my clients a more in-depth perspective and level of understanding than if they were heading on this journey without agent representation. I consider my relationship with clients continued and ongoing. There is no such term as past client. This is the foundation of my business model.
