When it comes to leasing, selling or buying a home, whether you are a rookie home buyer or have gone through the process many times, having a local real estate expert who is well versed in local neighborhoods you are looking to move into, as well as the trends of that area, should be your goal.
One great example of an agent who is in your corner and is always looking out for your best interests is one lady right here in Charleston. I am familiar with neighborhoods in the country as far as Darrell Creek, as close to the islands as Seaside Farms, as central as Watermark, as easy as Bowman Square and historic as d'town Charleston and so on.
I have relocated here many years ago from Buffalo NY and have never regretted it. Easy living, a million things to do, amazing food, arts, music, history, beaches, sports, etc. The list is endless.
In the TV series "Modern Family", Phil plays a realtor and his quote is also my motto:
"On my honor, I promise to aid in man's quest for shelter, to recognize I'm not just in the business of houses -- I'm in the business of dreams in the shape of houses. To disclose all illegal additions, shoddy construction, murders, and ghosts. And to put my clients' needs before my own."
It seems silly and funny but it is the truth. I will work with you as a team member to find just the right place and tell you my honest opinion about homes and neighborhoods. And when you have made the decision to enter the housing market, as either a buyer or a seller or simply want to lease a home, make sure you look for an agent who exemplifies these values and will help you through every step of the process.
