Many years ago, a realtor hovered around a neighborhood and became the best and most knowledgeable person that you could turn to for information on the current real estate market. Today real estate agents use similar techniques, however, now Realtors have far reaching territories which require a constant effort to learn and understand the many different available markets.
People who are looking to buy or sell, typically go to the internet first for information. The web is an excellent starting place, but as with all efforts to learn, a time comes when you must rely on some help to determine the best course of action.
Today's Realtor no longer roams the neighborhood looking to snag any homeowner who is thinking about making a move. A successful Realtor goes beyond your neighborhood and learns the nuances of your area using complex search techniques to ascertain anything and everything available--to ensure that you are provided with the latest and most up to date information.
The internet really has changed all of our lives.
However, the one thing that the internet cannot provide, is a person who is attentive to the things that are important to you. Only a qualified and experienced Realtor listens to your needs and responds with guidance to help you make the best possible decision.
