It will be best for you to choose one Realtor to work with exclusively. I will be committed to helping you find your home. I will negotiate on your behalf and will work to protect your interests. I am paid solely on a commission basis when the transaction has closed.
Feel free to attend open houses. If you would like, I can e-mail you open houses that fit your criteria. When you are asked to sign in at an open house, you can sign in with my information or you can leave my card. I will give you a stack of my business cards for this purpose.
If you visit any sales centers please be sure to sign me in as your Realtor/Agent. Some sales centers will not cooperate with me (allow me to represent you) if you have not indicated our relationship at your initial visit to the sales center.
FOR SALE BY OWNER
If you see any FSBO’s that you are interested in, please give me the address and/or contact information for the sellers. Most FSBO’s will agree to cooperate with a Realtor. I will be able to schedule showings for us and will be able to represent you fully in order to ensure that you are offering/paying market value and that your interests are protected.
If you see a sign or drive by a property you are interested in, e-mail or call me with the address. I will check and see if it fits your criteria.
MIDWEST REAL ESTATE DATA
(MRED, FORMALLY CALLED MLS)
We will be setting up searches for you thru MRED (MLS). You will be automatically updated whenever a new property becomes available that meets your
criteria, or upon any price changes within your search. Brokers are able to input their listings into the MLS and we agree to cooperate with each other thru this database. Therefore, we will have access to and can show you properties that are listed with other companies, just as these other companies can show any listings that we have. Furthermore, MRED is the database that most other sites pull from (Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow, or other real estate companies’ websites), so you can rest assured you will have the most current available listings thru our search! Please note, our search will be set to NOT send you properties that are under contract, but some websites will still advertise listings in some stage of under contract. You can call/ text/email us anytime to double check on an address if you don’t see it in your search!
