How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents? First, there is my experience – I have been in the business for more than 12 years. Also, I provide individual attention to each client, and always “going to bat” for them. I am always available to my client, whether be a 10 p.m. telephone call or negotiating a contract at the beach. Agent availability is of utmost importance, as the homebuying/selling process is the largest investment many folks are involved in.
