Frequently Asked Questions

We love your questions. Here are a few that are frequently asked.

Unfortunately, the internet does not tell you the whole story about properties. Often, internet listings are incomplete, and inaccurate, and the value of a property is based on more than material facts. My research tactics are more thorough and efficient than what a buyer can achieve on his or her own.

In addition, I will position you to be a more competitive buyer. When you are backed by the right team, your offer can appear stronger than those of competing buyers in your price range.


Finally, throughout your search I contribute a trained eye that is critical for comparing property options, and all of these buyer and investor services are granted at no cost to you.

Furthermore, the agency relationship is a contract that gives the REALTOR® a fiduciary duty for 6 specific standards.
