Home is where the heart is, and just as you wouldn't trust your heart with any doctor, you wouldn't trust your home - one of your most valuable assets - with just any realtor.
When you're sick, you want the best doctor, from the best hospital, with the best reputation. You want someone who has book smarts - went to medical school, has all the appropriate accreditations, and reads up on all of the latest medical journals.
But book smarts is not all you want.
You want a doctor who also has street smarts. You want someone who has experience in the field, understands your history, and knows how communicate the best options for your situation. And lastly, you want that doctor to have a team that supports his or her efforts and lets them do what they do best.
Believe it or not, you want the same characteristics in your realtor. And that's exactly what you get from me, and The Home Advantage Team. We are the #1 team in Arlington, Mass. With more than 25 years in the real estate industry and in Arlington, you get a team with book smarts that comes with understanding the nuances of buying and selling real estate, and street smarts of knowing a town's culture, people and attributes that your average Joe would not be privy to (speaking of, Not Your Average Joe's on Mass. Ave. has a great new menu that debuts today, Wednesday, 5/18).
Being a realtor is not rocket science. Nor is it brain surgery. To be a great realtor requires a mix of credibility, integrity, smarts, and people-skills. Because there is no one-size-fits-all approach to buying or selling a house, each client receives a personalized approach that aligns with their particular wants, needs, style, timing, likes and dislikes.
