What Are The Differences Between Working With A Team And Working With A Single Agent

Homes In Woodbridge VA Are Selling Fast, So You Need An Agent Ready To Jump When A Good House Hits The Market

Until twenty years ago, the vast majority of agents worked alone, or worked with an admin assistant who home prices in Woodbridge VAwould take care of processing paperwork.

Then in the early 1990's, top selling agents began hiring Buyer Agents and Showing Agents to help handle their workload.  

I hired an admin assistant after just two months in real estate back in 1990.  Marilyn took care of processing paperwork so I had more time to be face-to-face with buyers and sellers.

I hired my first Buyer Agent in 1991.  Katie ran with buyers, showing homes, writing offers and negotiating contracts.  

Patty replaced Marilyn in 1993 as my admin assistant, and she also took on the role of Relocation Coordinator.

Having staff gives me time to take listing appointments and help buyers with house hunting.new homes for sale Woodbridge VA

Let's look at the single agent, working alone.  

You're a client of a single agent and you want to see houses tomorrow afternoon.  

You call your agent and find out that she cannot help you because she is working with an out of town buyer who has three days to house hunt, secure a house, and fly home.  So you have to wait until a few days until your agent is available to see you.

My team is now up to five people; Four agents and one administrator.  If you want to see houses tomorrow afternoon, it is highly likely that one of our team members will be available to show you homes.home theater Woodbridge VA
