Broker / Owner at The Move Group
I became a Realtor so that I could be in a position to help prevent other people from experiencing my first-time home buyer story. As a 22-year-old college graduate, I decided to buy my first home from a for sale by owner seller without a buyer’s agent representing me. This home quickly became a lemon that consumed three years of my life and was ultimately deemed nearly a total loss (see “The Money Pit”). If I had worked with an experienced and knowledgeable real estate agent, I likely would not have purchased the home because a qualified, professional real estate agent will point out potential problems with a home and with a contract. I want to be that agent for my clients. Your home should be a joy in your life, not a nightmare.
