Why do I need a real estate agent?

Thinking of Buying or Selling a home in this hot real estate market? There are a minimum of 87 possible legal documents amounting to hundreds of pages of forms, notices, agreements, disclosures and contracts that may or may not be applicable in your purchase or sale. See the list below!
Realtors® are trained on if, when and how to use any one of these 87 different legal documents in a variety of different circumstances. I’ve observed way too much frustration over the years, headache, liability and lost money when people try to figure this out on their own or who don’t have an experienced professional at their side.
Give your Realtor® a call and let them walk you through all of this.
