Why use a REALTOR®?
Many consumers consider selling their home directly but eventually turn to REALTORS®. Smart home sellers realize they need the expertise in pricing their home, making connections with REALTORS® working with buyers, arranging safe showings, and coordinating with other professionals in the sales process.
Only about half of all real estate agents are REALTORS® - the top half, in our not-so-humble opinion. They help people buy and sell residential or commercial properties, vacation homes, and land; they conduct appraisals; they operate in the United States and in other countries; some specialize in auctions; and others are buyer's representatives.
