  1. How engaged are you throughout the transaction?

In a real estate transaction there are realtors, attorney’s, home inspectors, loan officers, bank attorney’s, title companies, appraisers that are all involved at some point in time. With a buyer or seller depending on all these people it’s important that there is a quarterback who is making sure everything goes smoothly and if it doesn’t there needs to be a solution maker. “You will be surprised how many realtors get the deal accepted, pass the info to the attorneys, and simply ask to be notified when the closing date is” says Anthony Garcia, Broker at Performance Residential Realty Corp. Even in a smooth real estate transaction there are issues that come up and it’s important that your realtor will stay engaged and take care of the issues as they come up. It’s also crucial that the realtor has the broad knowledge and experience to be able to have conversations with all the above mentioned parties to fix any problems that incur. A lot of times a realtor will not get involved because they just don’t know how to fix the problem there for they need to rely on someone else like busy attorneys to take care of it.
