The Rise of Markets, The Fall of Agents

Who Will Sell You Your Next House?

Yes, this summer in DFW there will be a mad dash for homes. Agents will rise and...will they fall?

One big thing to ask yourself is who will represent you in this process. Many will take to Zillow, Trulia, or Realtor.com to research and find what they are looking for. This new approach takes away a part of what an agent is supposed to do for you, which is fine. You will shop around, get an idea for what you like and get a general idea of how much the home you want should cost.

What does the agent have to offer after you begin to shop around late at night when you should be sleeping, or while your at work on a "break"? An agent's value comes in evaluating different areas for appreciation rates, projecting future value based on foreseeable market conditions, negotiate, and guide you through the homebuying process.

This is where we are with all the new technology. Unfortunately, gone is the lost art of an agent bringing more to the table.
Today's best agents hide behind their teams.
Today's best agents go on listing presentations day-after-day and collect large portions of their buyers-agents' commissions.
They do not show their clients properties.
They do not provide one-on-one experience.
They can not provide you with the best level of service.

On a daily basis, it is a struggle to connect with other realtors who are always in meetings or away getting their nails done. Today, I have six potential sellers around DFW that want to sell their homes but only a quarter of the realtors I called even answered their phone. Half of them transferred me to an assistant. My apologies but an assistant will not be able to tell me if the agent, or agents, have buyers looking in the areas or price points that I have sellers in.

What will your agent do for you?
