Finding a quality Realtor can be tricky if you are not familiar with the area you would like to live. Typically most quality agents come from referrals from friends who have good experience with a certain Realtor. The fact is that most Realtors have left the profession since the economy has taken a downturn while leaving just a handful of agents who tend to do 90% of the business. In addition, each quality Realtor has a specific niche that they are good at. You will find waterfront & oceanfront specialists, community and short sale experts for example. If you are looking for a Realtor who specializes in the $1 million dollar range homes then you are best bet is to work with an agent that has professional web exposure and understands the local marketplace. Our team of Realtors have agents who specialize in this price range and can explain the nuances of buying homes in the $1 million dollar range. Depending on whether you are looking for a condo or single family home will change the search criteria as many single family homes will start just under this price point. You will also find a lot of short sales in this price point so make sure your Realtor has experience in negotiating short sales on behalf of his clients. Buying a home is a fun experience as long as you have proper qualified representation and an agent that is willing to work for you.
