Moving is never easy, especially if you are relocating to an entirely new city, state, or even country. When you’re ready to make your move, choosing the right Scottsdale Arizona real estate professional can make your transition much easier. Here are a few tips to choose a good real estate agent.
Experience Your home is often the largest single investment and so it makes sense that when selling or buying this “investment” you want the best person for the job. An agent should have your best interests at heart, be your fiduciary, and hold your information in confidence. That agent should work to pay for their own commission by using good negotiation skills both during the contract negotiation and during the appraisal process. Understand the best methods to gain more value keeps client business and earns new business. That is the experience I bring to you and your home.
Network An agent should be held in high esteem by their network of agents and vendors. An agent should have a “network” of vendors that are reputable, licensed, and work to earn their business. Having a key list of vendors in the business helps transactions run smoothly for estimates and repairs. And with years of experience, that vendor list grows and changes with time. Trusted vendors are the key to a good business model. My network of vendors is long, but a short list is always handy. Knowing key officials in the building industry is also a big plus in maintaining knowledge of building codes, inspection codes, and more.
Professional Organizations Volunteering with the US Green Building Council since 2009 has earned me the respect of my peers and more knowledge gained than the average real estate professional. Having key players at the ready due to formal relationship has been a tremendous benefit. Co-founding Pinnacle One Group (POG) as a housing based service organization in 2005 has brought me some of the best relationships with key vendors.
When the time comes for you to make Scottsdale your home, think of what is important to you in choosing the right real estate agent. Making the transition and Relocating To Scottsdale will be a great experience and a smooth relocation as I work with buyers and sellers alike in the process. Making Scottsdale your home is my business and I’m very proud to serve as your real estate professional!
