THE MORE EXPERIENCED THE AGENT WHO REPRESENTS YOU IS, THE BETTER THE RESULTS YOU WILL GET!
The reason you want an agent to help you is to protect your interests & ensure you purchase the best home possible for your needs at the best price possible with the fewest problems or inconveniences. A STRONG AGENT MAKES YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE & LISTENS TO YOU!
ALL AGENTS AREN'T EQUAL...in fact they're not even close. There are HUGE differences!
A New Agent
A new agent is new & may somewhere down the road have enough knowledge to help you properly but for right now they have no tools, experience or network to get you top results. Not the worst agent to select, but definately not the agent who's going to get you TOP RESULTS.
A part time agent has often been a Realtor for years. These agents buy or sell a couple of homes a year & have no professional network, very little current market knowledge & are milesbehind the times on everything. They rely solely on their relationships with clients (family & friends). Likely a good person with good intentions, but again this won't be the agent that fines you the best home for the best price.
I'm this agent. I've bought & sold 15x more homes than Calgary's average agent, have extensive experience, a closet full of tools, tons of connections, professional market knowledge & have worked with some of the best Real Estate investors around. Finding you the right home is just part of what I do. I also ensure you get the best mortgage deal available, work with proven professionals along the way like lawyers, home inspectors & any other trade we may require.
I personally work with you one on one at all times to ensure you & your family get the best possible service & the full value of my extensive knowledge & experience. I'm here to find you the best house not just a house. If I see problems with a property you'll know about it. I'm here for you at all times and today is the start of what I hope will be a long term relationship. When it's EXCEPTIONAL RESULTS you want I'm your agent..
An agent team is where a lead agents hires either a discount agent, a new agent, or a unsuccessful agent to work under their name. You'll likely get to deal with all these agents throughout your association with them & know one will ever really know what's going on. The promise is more agents better service, but isn't it better to deal directly with one agent (the best agent) & get their full attention at all times? Dealing with a team usually places you & your family in the hands of the least qualfied agents when it comes down to service & negoiations. Do you think an agent team can do a better job?
My goal is always to ensure I find you the best home possible in your budget.
