There's more to being a realtor than opening a door and pointing out the features of a home. More to it than showing comparable listings and sales. It's becoming part of your team that helps you reach the goals that you have for yourself and your loved ones.
I view a big part of my job as being a sort of "financial advisor" that listens to what you want and need, bring expertise and objectivity to the process and help you plan for today and the future. For most, their home is their biggest purchase and major part of their financial portfolio and I believe that it is my duty to take that responsibility with all the seriousness, professionalism and respect it deserves.
