In all candor, I’m still on the fence with some realtors. That said, I am now qualifying my skepticism with “if you get the right one, they are a huge help”. Chris is one of the “right ones”. She is 100% the professional – takes her job and the service she provides seriously and has a no nonsense approach.
As a buyer, I trusted her opinion because she was clearly knowledgeable and gave the unvarnished pros and cons to the deals we considered. I never felt pressured by her, and in fact, I think she kept me from making bad decisions. Obviously, 6% of the sale price goes to the brokers so that’s a mark up of sorts. However, because of Chris, I’m sure I got the best price possible for what I purchased — that confidence and peace of mind that the process is being handled by a professional is worth the commission. Highly recommended!
