Why Work with a Realtor?

How REALTORS® Help You

Buying or selling your home is a complex process, and choosing to work with a realtor gives you professional representation to help with every step along the way. 

Your realtor is a trusted advisor licensed by FCNB, with the experience to provide help with one of your most significant financial investments.

When you decide to buy or sell your property, a realtor will assist you to make the most of the transaction.

Lockboxes make it easy for agents to show your property, and only REALTORS® can access the full Home Price Index (HPI), a sophisticated tool to estimate house prices and trends.

REALTORS® CAN

Help you decide on pricing based on current market conditions, negotiate on your behalf with potential buyers or sellers, and communicate with other REALTORS® to broaden the selection of properties that meet your needs.

Give you insight on pricing through access to current market information, including recent sales.

Make recommendations from their network of professionals such as lawyers, insurance agents, certified home inspectors, movers, and contractors who can advise and assist you with the many steps along the way.

Offer you helpful advice and suggestions on how to prepare your home or business for the market.

A realtor's knowledge of various neighbourhoods and locations is also valuable

Are there re-zoning or future development plans you should be aware of? 
What amenities are nearby like schools, grocery stores, shops, parks and green spaces?
Are they within a range that’s comfortable for you?

For commercial transactions, REALTORS® will use their network of contacts to help you with analysis, zoning, appraisal, financing, and navigating through the requirements of municipal regulations.
