1. Education and Experience

Let's face it. Many people think they know what they're doing when they're buying or selling a home because they've read some articles on the Internet about it. The reality is that most people eventually realize there is so much involved in the process they didn't know about and end up paying the price. Most real estate agents are familiar with market conditions. Information such as the average cost per square foot of similar homes, average sales prices, and average days on the market can have an impact on your selling or buying decisions. Agents can guide clients to make the best pricing decision for themselves because of their knowledge and experience.

2. Marketing

The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is an essential tool that real estate agents have ready access to. They also have experience with newspaper and magazine ads, Internet listings, and a network of other agents. You may have access to many of these tools, but a real estate agent has expertise utilizing them. These marketing tools will get you more exposure and likely help sell your home faster if you're a seller and assist you in finding the best deal on a home if you're a buyer.

3. Negotiation Skills

Agents aren't emotionally involved in the process as much as the buyer or seller, and good agents are skilled in the art of negotiating. They can also act as a buffer between you and the buyer or seller.

4. Paperwork

Purchase agreements consist of many pages of paperwork. Even the smallest mistake in paperwork can cost you thousands or even land you in court. A good real estate agent knows that scaling the mountain of paperwork to ensure there are no mistakes and nothing is missed is his job.

5. Questions After Closing

Many questions can arise after closing on a home, and a good real estate agent won't leave you searching for the answers yourself.

Ratings & Reviews

Kathy was instrumental in identifying a home along with an adjacent tract of land. She then quickly and deftly negotiated a complicated simultaneous closing on both parcels. She is an experienced broker that really cares for her clients and provides a lot of individual attention. I had a great experience working with Kathy and I'd recommend her to any prospective home buyer.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Southlake, TX.

Kathy was amazing -- not just in figuring how to stage the house for sale, and price it right for the neighborhood, but her photographer is fantastic. We put the house up right before I had to leave for Europe and she handled the offers electronically with me via email. We had an offer within a few days. The inspection had a few items to fix, and she and her colleague took care of making sure the contractors had access to the house while I was gone. Great service from start to finish!  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Northeast Dallas, Dallas, TX.

A Realtor must wear several hats: be a savvy business person, have the empathy of a psychologist and possess the fortune telling skills of Nostradamus. Kathy manages to put all those attributes together and more into one very impressive package. In selling my uncle's 35 year old home, Kathy navigated the twists and turns of the Dallas real estate market with the grace and fearlessness of Evel Kneivel vaulting his motorcycle 151 feet over the fountains of Caesars Palace. She got us more money for the property than we expected and did it with a minimum amount of hassle. There were many directions that one could take in putting my uncle's idiosyncratic home on the market and pricing it. Kathy's instincts were right on and the result was a quick and efficient sale. All parties involved, the seller and buyer, walked away with a smile on their faces - a rarity in the rough and tumble world of real estate.  More Less
