reasons to hire a full time agent
There are many benefits to selling a home with a full service Realtor, but rather than tell you, I’d rather show you a real life situation. It means more, I believe, when you’re looking at an actual transaction because you can put yourself in the seller’s shoes and better relate. This particular seller in Antelope called me in early January of this year to say she wanted to sell her home. I was at our vacation home on my Hawaii wor-cation on the day the seller called, and not coming back home to Sacramento anytime soon.
Before you end up working with Sacramento Realtors who are not full-time agents without your knowledge, you can fix that by asking your agent if she is part-time. We have more than 5,000 Realtors in the Sacramento Valley, and not all of them are full-time. I don’t think there are any agents who begrudge another person the opportunity to supplement her income, but some of the problems inherent with being a part-time agent can be very challenging for a full-time agent to deal with. If full-time agents struggle with this kind of relationship, what does that say about their clients?
