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?

My wife and I moved from California after job relocation and selected Jill after reviewing her website and learning more than we thought about the Houston area.
When we met Jill, she first came across as honest, professional, and caring. She lived up to the expectation. She helped guide us in choosing the best community, SummerWood, for our situation. Jill was never pushy, impatient or unprofessional when we turned down several homes which fit our initial description. Several times we moved the goal line and changed our preferences and each time time Jill asked for clarification, gave us a professional opinion and went to work.
Our home closed before we could arrive in Houston and Jill kept our key and ensured we were catered to until we moved to Houston.
When we thought were were going to have problems with closing before my assignment started, it was Jill who went ahead and researched temporary housing for us (without me asking). She worked with our lender and represented our interests until we could arrive in Houston.
When we did move in, we got a welcome mat at our front door, gift card to a restaurant, and a list of vendors we would need to begin life in Houston.
My wife and I definitely view Jill as the Realtor to work with. She is friendly, intelligent, and she dresses nice too. Too much to list, all around nice lady. Met her husband too and I'm still trying to decide who is nicer. read less
