Q: What question are you most frequently asked about buying and selling real estate?
A: “Is this a good deal?” is the question we’re asked most often. Our response is consistent: What is a “good deal” to you? Sometimes, it’s just getting the house or the neighborhood; sometimes it’s getting the best price. Every buyer is different. We dig deeper to find out.
While we always want our clients to love their home, we also help them understand its value as an investment: the appreciation and return they might expect or the income it could generate as a rental property. We counsel them on the benefits and cost of improvements and how to prioritize spending. Our advice is always honest and tailored to their needs. Acting as trusted advisors when they buy is the best way to ensure that we’ll be their agents when they’re ready to sell.
Q: What is one of the significant changes in real estate you’ve experienced during your careers?
A: Today, buyers and sellers have myriad online resources at their fingertips. First-time buyers, especially, tend to do lots of research before they contact us. But nothing can substitute for the value of our expertise, experience and personal relationships with our clients. We work diligently to help clients identify the best path forward and to show them that it takes much more than a search engine to buy a house in a competitive landscape. Having a true professional in your corner can’t be replaced by a website or an app.
