Keep your expectations high!

Your expectations are right where they should be: high. Buying a home is one of the most important financial decisions in your life. Entrusting that process to a hobbyist who’s not equipped or not interested in looking out for your best interests is a risk you can’t afford.

You understand that well. A good buyer’s agent is your full-time advocate. That means complete transparency throughout the buying process. You value constant communication and expect to know every detail about the properties you tour as your agent does. What’s more, you value expertise and candor, no matter how tough it is to hear.

As you continue on in your home-buying process, always keep in mind that you want to be making the most informed decision possible. Buying a home is an emotional decision, which is why you need an objective advocate on your side. With complete information you can decide based on facts. Not just feelings.
