I have worked with many real estate agents during my years as a licensed Realtor® and I have found that this field is home to all types of agents and personalities.
Did you know that approximately 1 out of every 220 adults in the US is a licensed agent (or was at some point in time). Yet despite the high number of real estate agents, I find that I can count on one hand the other agents that I would love to do business with again.
I’ve been seeing it more and more lately. FULL PRICE CASH OFFERS…and I’m not talking about investor offers on properties in disrepair. I’m talking about offers by owner occupants on newly renovated houses and well-maintained homes.
Have you ever hired a Realtor and regretted your decision? You are not alone. Not everyone loves their agent and the underlying reason is that some real estate agents are just better than others. The fact is 20% of the real estate agents do 80% of the business.
Just because you know a friend or family member who is a real estate agent, does not mean that they are the right agent for you. Do your research, get referrals and interview your real estate agent before you hire them. Make sure that they are going to work hard for you!
I am a real estate investor – fix & flip, buy & hold and wholesale houses – and a licensed PA Realtor®, soon to be licensed in NJ too. I live and breathe real estate! If you ask my husband, I probably talk about this stuff way too much. So here is an outlet for me to talk about real estate without talking his ear off.
