All real estate agents are regulated by law. Therefore their professional information is public, search their licensing information and look for any complaints or if the person is a real licensee. Check to see if they are a REALTOR and therefore adheres to the NAR’s code of ethics. Certain designations also represent their specifications. For example ABR means accredited buyer representative, and CIPS means certified international property specialist.

When selling a home, be careful of agents who “buy the listing.” Meaning some agents will agree to a high price in order to buy the listing.

To maximize your profit, but not set a price so high it scares off buyers. Allow us to show you the unique differences between Elliot Lee and the rest.
