I Have A Team For That

As you may have found in many aspects of life, sometimes a team of people can get can a job done faster, and more effectively. Real Estate is one of them.

As you may have found in many aspects of life, sometimes a team of people can get can a job done faster, and more effectively. Real Estate is one of them.

When you choose a Realtor to represent you in a Real Estate purchase or sale, you are not just choosing them, but their inner connected team of professionals. This may include preferred lenders, home inspectors, contractors to do repairs and updates, preferred title and escrow officers, CPAs, lawyers, etc.

The list can be endless. The point is, you need to know who these professionals are, and how to best utilize your Realtor’s connections.

I’m not, in any way, implying that you are required to use your Realtors preferred team members. The choice of who you hire is always yours! But your Realtors job is to advise you when it is time to bring these people into the transaction, and they interact with these professionals every day. Just like you ask trusted friends and family for recommendations, you are most likely going to ask your Realtor for theirs.

A very important part of Realtors duties, which is not spelled out in the code of ethics or Real Estate law, is relationship building. Realtors spend a lot of time working with many different people in their industry, and getting to know what kind of work they produce. If a Realtor recommends a person that does a poor job, it reflects poorly on them as well. So they make a huge effort to get to know the quality people, and build a working relationship with them.

What this means for you is that you have an entire team of people at your disposal! When it comes time to use one of these other professionals, ask your Realtor for two or three names in that category. Call each and ask them specific questions about what is needed from them. You can choose one with confidence because you picked the best from the best: your Realtor’s team.
