People often believe or think that Realtors don't know a whole lot - this couldn't be further from the truth. Majority of Realtors, including myself, are knowledgeable, competent, educated and very compassionate people.
People believe that you only need to hire a Realtor if you are in a rush to sell your home - This is not always true. Infact, if you're not in a rush to sell your home, then this is good for both you and your Realtor. This means that I, as your Realtor, now have the time to properly market and advertise your home, and to get you the best price for it!
I always get people coming up to me and saying that Realtors don't do a whole lot and charge very high commissions, and I'm confident that they’re not aware that majority of Realtors work 10-12 hour days, 7 days a week, often at great detriment to both their family lives and personal health.
It is important to note that Realtors need Clients (buyers and sellers) as much as Clients need Realtors; it is a mutually beneficial relationship; a relationship in which both parties win!
