Choosing the Right Realtor for the Job!

When you are looking to buy or sell a home you have a lot of decisions to make. Things like where I want to live, what price range am I comfortable with, commute times to work, friends, family etc.  Another big decision is going to be what Realtor do you work with? See, this to me can be an extremely important part of the process.

In the Real Estate industry there are a lot of part time Realtors. I want to say  about 80% of all Realtors are part time. The way I see it,  is how can you be part time and stay on top of all the new loan programs, market conditions, housing value trends and most importantly being available for your clients. Not to mention staying on top of the file for your clients, clearing title conditions and all the other tedious tasks that come along with a file.

See, buying or selling a house is a major life event and in most cases it’s the largest purchase and or investment one will ever make in their life. ESPECIALLY if you’re selling a house and buying another. That takes everything to a whole new level. You must be able to coordinate the transition as seamless as possible. If you are not completely organized as a Realtor, you can create a world of chaos for the client. It’s almost like needing a surgery and going to a part-time surgeon. Ok, maybe that’s a little excessive but in both cases, you’re dealing with a life changing event and I see it all the time primarily from the part timer. My favorite is the part time Realtor with a Fulltime Job.

In my eyes when you’re looking for a Realtor,  you really want someone that’s fulltime. Someone that can communicate with you at any time, answer or return your calls, stay in touch with the other agents, know what’s coming on the market before it hits (only in some cases), someone that can work mornings, nights, weekends and even the occasional holiday.

Brent has stuck by my side through the whole process. If I want to see a house, immediately he sets up a time and we are looking at the house. You can always get ahold of him. He is very knowledgeable too!


Brent is an amazing person, He helps in any way he can to his fullest! He isn't just doing his job, he goes above and beyond. With any question given, he has an answer every time and even if he did not know the answer, he would do whatever research needed so... (more)

Brent is very hardworking. Best realestate agent to have. He showed me tons of homes in my price range and offered his expert opinion and background of the neighborhoods we were in.
