Long Grove Realtor- Choose the best for you

Long Grove Realtor- How to choose the one for you?  

Long Grove Realtor

You have come to that time in your life when you will be downsizing, transfering, upsizing, etc.  Part of this moving process will involve choosing a Realtor who meets your qualifications.   As you are aware, if you are buying or selling real estate in Long Grove, there are many excellent Long Grove Realtors to choose from.   Here are 5 Tips to help you find the one best suited for you!

1   Choose a Long Grove Realtor you can trust

There are certain professions where trust is of the utmost importance and included in this list is realtors. A good realtor is someone who you know will do his or her best for you.

 No -brainer! The high level of integrity and complete honesty bred into me enable you to put your trust in me to help YOU with your next real estate  purchase.  I will provide you a list of my past clients in order for you to feel comfortable with the way I handled their last real estate transaction.  

2   Choose a full- time Long Grove Realtor

These days, it seems that almost everyone has a friend who is  a realtor. Some realtors sell real estate as a hobby, and others do it as a full time job.  I do it  almost 24/7- ask my family.  During your search for the perfect home, a realtor will be looking for your home on the multiple listing service that meets all of your criteria.

I go way beyond that.    Many times when I have a buyer in a specific price range and they can’t find their dream home,  I will always go above and beyond   I  started a Facebook page which includes 250 top Local Realtors to discuss and share knowledge about homes before they are listed on the market  I'm also a member of another private group that publicizes home before they go on the market.  

3   Choose a local Long Grove Realtor.

It is important to choose a realtor who knows the area like the back of her hand.  Your realtor should be completely versed in the schools, subdivisions,school districts, boundary lines, commuting, type of water the home uses, conservancy laws, etc .

Let me give you an example.  Suppose a school district changed boundaries within the last few years.   Many listing realtors are relying on old school information, and submitting incorrect schools or incorrect spelling of schools on the MLS sheets.  This is happening more frequently today, especially with the influx of foreclosures and bank owned property on the market.  The seller’s bank hires the Realtor and this realtor may live and work hours from the property.  If a buyer’s realtor does not know the area, they will incorrectly rely on the listing agents mistakes.

When you are negotiating on behalf of your client, it is always better to be the one who is more knowledgeable about the area.  If you are representing the buyer and the seller won’t budge on the price, you always have the advantage if you have seen the inside of the comparables and the reason that they sold for the price they did. A local realtor has the upper hand in the negotiations.

I  have lived in Long Grove for 24 years.    I am the top broker with the Long Grove office of  Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage( located next to Sunset foods)


4. Choose a Long Grove Realtor who is Internet Savvy.  

Whether you are selling or buying a home,  a Realtor who can navigate through the internet will become very helpful in the process.

I am actually an internet geek- so that when I list homes,  my websites featuring their properties can be found on the first page of Google!  

5. Choose a  Long Grove Realtor who knows the market!  Below is a Summary of the homes that closed and went under contract in Long Grove in September 2015.  I have been in every one of these homes!
