When choosing a real estate professional, it’s important to look for the registered trademark, REALTOR®. All of our REALTOR® members are proud members of the Missouri REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®.
The use of technology has brought the world to our finger tips. Often we can push a button and an item arrives at our doorstep. Buying or selling real estate is a bit more complicated than pushing a button, and that's why you need a REALTOR® by your side.
REALTORS® continuously increase their education in order to better serve their clients. They are knowledgeable in all areas of real estate from purchasing programs, zoning restrictions, green initiatives, building codes, and market data.
It is best to know what the market is doing in your area. A REALTOR® has the data at their fingertips. They know the average prices, days on the market, square footage, and improvements to your property that should be done to enhance your investment. All of these things can help your decision making.
It's all in who you know, and REALTORS® are constantly networking with others in the real estate industry and often beyond that.
A REALTOR® may already know of a buyer or seller that is right for your needs.
A REALTOR® will help with the negotiating process. They are able to conduct the negotiation without emotional attachment. They are trained to keep their clients' interests and confidentiality in order to achieve the best possible deal for everyone involved in the transaction.
The days of one-page documents are gone. A real estate transaction can take mountains of paperwork from contracts, disclosures, title work, amendments, inspection notices, and more. A REALTOR® has the forms and knowledge to easily guide you through the system and help keep you from being hit with court time and legal fees.
REALTORS® must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics that was adopted in 1913 by the National Association of REALTORS®. This is to ensure that consumer's best interests are always met and that agents will act with integrity and honor through cooperation with other real estate professionals.
