You Pick

michigansalespersonWhen you feel you are ready to make that real estate purchase, or you know it is time to sell that Michigan real estate, who are you going to call?

That is a good question with all the different real estate companies out there. There are many well known national companies with recognizable names like Remax, Coldwell Banker, Real Estate One, Centaury 21 and so many more. Then there are the lesser known names, some small offices with one or two people, some with many sales people and many locations. There are a lot of options to choose from.

Are you better off with the well known name companies with large advertising budgets or a small office that advertises personal service? There are pros and cons for both.

I have come up with my own take on the subject. Don’t pick the company for its size, name or lack of name. Make your decision based upon the person – not the company he or she works for. A person who demonstrates that he or she is knowledgeable about the market, the location, the type of property you have or are interested in. Nothing substitutes for his or her first hand experience.

I know many will disagree with my simple take on this subject, but over the years it has worked for me.
