Why Hire a Realtor?

Given the proliferations of services that help home buyers and sellers complete their own transaction, you may have
considered whether you should go it yourself instead of working with an agent. However, there is no substitute for an
experienced professional, and taking on all the responsibility yourself could be costlier than an agent's commission in the
long run.


According to the National Association of Realtors' 2017 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, only 8% of home sales were
accomplished as for sale by owner (FSBO), and of those, 40% knew their buyer personally. FSBO home sales had a median
price of $190,000 in 2017, compared to the agent assisted home sale median price of $250,000.


Beyond the price advantage of hiring Brooke to work as your agent, homes listed by her get more exposure and her sellers get more support.

 

Here are some other considerations:

 

  • She's a trained and licensed professional.

  • She has oversight from brokers and state licensing officials.

  • Her job is to advise you the best way to reach your goals.

  • She knows how to present your home and deal with buyers.

  • She knows how and where to market your property effectively.

  • She knows how to overcome typical snags that occur in real estate

  • She understands state-required disclosures and looks out for your best interests.

  • She understands personal safety and security for your belongings during showings.

  • She knows the best resources to make transactions go more smoothly, from bankers to home-stagers to contractors.

  • She has insider access to the most accurate and comprehensive data - the MLS, the only data repository that has the most up-to-date listing and sales information.

  • She knows how to negotiate.

  • Her job is making real estate transactions successful.

  • Her continuing education keeps her clients up-to-date on housing issues.


With a real estate professional like Brooke in your corner, you'll have a partner by your side to advocate for you and advise you through the entire home sale process.
