Why stick with one Agent?
It's no secret that every potential buyer or seller in today's real estates market has a huge pool of agents to pull from to accomodate them in their real estate transaction. Although any licensed REALTOR in CT can legally facilitate a real estate transaction, it's very important to find an agent that knows the area that you are buying / selling in.
Ask agents what areas they cover. Small-town agents might work a multi-county area. Agents in a city might restrict themselves to certain neighborhoods or subdivisions. My specialty is particularly in southern Hartford County and surrounding areas about as far south as Middletown in Middlesex County.
Real Estate agents such as myself who specialize in a certain geographical area are really in tune with market conditions in that region and can give you realistic advice on the timeliness and worth of your potential sale or purchase. You are also more likely to get better service from an agent who does not have to commute a long distance to assist you in your real estate transaction.
Researching and showing properties is time-consuming, so you'll get better service if you find an agent you like (within a given area) and stick with that agent.
I have been that agent of choice for many consumers during my eight year career in real estate and would love the opportunity to represent you throughout your transaction as the true professional you deserve,
