Recently while at a family gathering, you told an aunt you and your husband were thinking about buying a house in Spring Texas. Your aunt’s response was “You need to call your cousin, Joe. He’s a Realtor®”. Cousin Joe’s a Realtor? When did this happen? Last you heard he was working at Home Depot. Your aunt’s response was “Yes, Joe does still work at Home Depot. That’s his full-time job but he sells real estate part-time”.
1) Will Joe be able to show you homes when it fits into your schedule? Or will you lose the house of your dreams to another buyer because you have to schedule around Joe’s full-time job?
2) How much real estate experience does Joe have? How much of a disadvantage does his real estate experience put you at? Is his real estate experience equivalent to 50%, 33%, or 25% of a full-time Realtor®?
3) As a part-time Realtor®, is Joe aware of the latest rezoning of Klein schools and of new construction projects? Things that can and do impact the future resale value of your Spring Texas home.
4) Is Joe up to date on the recent changes made to the residential real estate contract? If not, you are in a weaker negotiating position.
When deciding upon which Spring Texas Realtor to hire, ask yourself who is going to do the best job at helping you with your largest financial purchase? Is that person someone who practices his craft on a daily basis and does it for a living? Or is it someone who sells real estate for supplemental income?

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.
She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all.
Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result.
I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
