Are You New to North Carolina?

New folks move to North Carolina - seemingly daily. So - how do you choose a real estate broker?

Notice - I said Real Estate Broker - Not Realtor. A Realtor must be in a Broker (in NC), but all brokers may NOT be a member of the National Association of Realtors.

Among the stampede of newcomers are people who are new to the real estate industry. Perhaps s/he has purchased a property before (or not). So - wouldn't you want to take your time and interview the person who will help you make one of the biggest purchases ever?

Yes - referrals are nice. But know this: a referral usually costs the Buyer (or Listing Agent) a portion of their commission. So - the work performed on behalf of the referring person may have been more generous - and different. 

Not necessarily lackluster. Just - different.

BTW: Are you asking about experience? Is s/he working in a team? Will the same Buyer Agent who shows you the property be the same person with you throughout the entire purchasing process?

Maybe - you should ask....




As of today all of our listings have sold or are under contract. What might surprise you about real estate is how different Buyers and Sellers may think!
