Since it’s the month of love, let’s talk about finding the perfect match…with your Realtor!
 
Finding a real estate agent that is the perfect match is extremely important.  Buying or Selling a home is one of life’s biggest transactions, so securing the right fit is crucial to establishing a solid partnership.  It can be a lot like dating!
 
Don’t fall in love at first sight!  Like dating, you should start slowly and survey all options before saying ‘I do’.  Sure, everyone looks good on paper, but do a little digging before you go on that blind date.  A quick Google search can tell you the realtor’s level of experience, area of expertise, and allow you to read reviews from previous clients.  Make a list of qualities that are important to you so that you can guarantee you will be compatible.  Like any good relationship, communication is key!  You want to partner with an agent that you can connect with easily.
 
Allow trusted friends and family members to play match-maker and ask for referrals.  If you’re not ready for a formal date, visit that agent at an open house for a casual way to meet them and gauge your first impression.  Ask them questions and get to know their personality.  This may lead you to pursue them further.
 
Put a ring on it!  Now that you found a realtor that has checked all the boxes, it’s time to secure your match.  Whether you’re buying or selling, the realtor you have put your trust in, will guide you along the way.   
 
“I Do!”  You’ve looked at houses, searched comparables and put in the time.  It’s time to sign on the dotted line and make things official.  You have found your perfect match to help you SELL your house or BUY your perfect new home sweet home.  It’s true love!
 

Happy Valentine’s Day!
