Buying or selling a home is often one of the largest financial transactions a person makes. It is important to consider the kind of legal relationship you might be entering into with the real estate agent you choose to assist you. The term “agent” is often used interchangeably with a real estate salesperson, broker, licensee or the real estate firm they are employed with.  The challenge of buying or selling a home can seem so daunting.  The best place to start is by choosing a good Realtor who you trust and enjoy working with. Ask their advice through each step of the process and leverage their experience. A good Realtor will keep you focused on the things that will help you throughout this process.
