Realtors Vs Realtor (Consultants)
It is often assumed that all Realtors perform the same actions and act within the same capacity. When we hear of Realtors we think of salesmen and saleswomen who take you around to see the homes that you want to see. The sad reality is that some Realtors do perform that particular function only, and for those who only want to see a home that is okay. However, if you are searching for a home to purchase; it will be wise to partner with a Realtor who acts in the capacity of a Realtor and a consultant.
A Realtor who acts in the capacity of consultant usually understands the ins and outs of the entire home buying process. The truth is that although purchasing a home on the surface appears very easy; there is a bit of complexity involved. The laws surrounding the contract and the home purchase can either work in your favor or in the opposite. Therefore, choose wisely when picking your Real Estate professional. Also, keep in mind that year of experience does not instantly qualify or disqualify an agent. Some really experienced agents are still in their first year of Real Estate although it’s their 10th year in the industry. For clarification, some Realtors are still at the same level of expertise even though they have practiced Real Estate for an extended period of time. Ask your Realtor questions, a Realtor who acts in the role of an a consultant and a Realtor will gladly answer the questions they have answers for and get answers from other qualified experts for the questions that they do not have answers for. The most important Role of a Realtor is to educate you, help you through the home buying process and work to create an atmosphere were problems will not occur or where problems will get alleviated quickly.

However, when you are serious about purchasing a home it is always a good idea to meet your Realtor in the office first. The reason you want to meet the Realtor at the office is so that you have the opportunity to determine whether you want to work with the Realtor or not. Also during the first meeting, your Realtor will educate you on the home buying process, do needs analysis and show you what is on the market that fits your needs.
