Why Use a REALTORĀ®?

Real Estate transactions today typically exceed $150,000, and are usually the largest financial investments in a person's lifetime.

Why wouldn't you use a professional?

Only real estate licensees that are members of the National Association of REALTORS® may also call themselves REALTOR®. They are bound by the Code of Ethics to treat all parties fairly and honestly, and to strive to preserve a higher degree of knowledge of the buying and selling process.


At HomeSmart Connect, as REALTORS®, we shoulder the responsibility to protect your best interests and guide you every step of the way throughout the buying or selling process.


Here are a few examples of what you can expect us to assist you with:

  • Completing a Market analysis and Market Value Assessment

  • Advertising your property to Buyers and other REALTORS®
  • Assisting in the preparations to sell your home
  • Interior Assessment
  • Exterior Assessment
  • Gathering Community Information
  • Preparing the Contract and any additional documents
  • Helping negotiate any Counter offers or other terms of sale
  • Identifying Buyer Qualification
  • Following Loan Process
  • Opening escrow and depositing Earnest Money
  • Coordinating Home Inspections

  • Obtaining Home Warranty policies
  • Maintaining deadlines and timelines for performance from both parties

  • Conducting walkthroughs
  • Determining if all negotiated items have been completed
  • Reviewing the Settlement Statement prior to closing

As you can see, this list is just the foundation for successfully buying or selling your property. There are even more aspects to every transaction, and it is in your best interest to use a REALTOR®.
