Choose a Real Estate Agent

Buying a property requires making many important financial decisions, understanding complex issues and completing a lot of paperwork. It helps to have an expert in your corner when undertaking such a large purchase. We can guide you through this process, and also provide you with access to property listings before they hit the general market.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing your real estate professional:

  • Look for a full-time agent – one who has experience completing transactions similar to yours.
  • Interview a few agents: Are they familiar with the area in which you are interested?
  • Ask how much time the agent will have for you, and if they are available at night and on weekends.
  • Ask about their credentials and education: A good agent will continually strive to improve and gain knowledge of the latest real estate trends and hold the highest designations in their respective fields of expertise.
  • Does the agent return your calls promptly? Time is money when attempting to buy a property.
  • Ask for a list of properties they have sold or a list of references.
  • Choose an agent who listens attentively to your needs and concerns. Pick an agent, with whom you feel comfortable.

    Erin was excellent! He made the home buying process for my wife and I simple and stress free. His expertise and knowledge of the historic homes of Jacksonville allowed us to feel confident in our decision to buy a historic home. We interacted … More with multiple realtors prior to meeting Erin and I must say he was by far the most impressive. His authenticity and genuine interest in findings us the right home really set him apart from others. I highly recommend working with Erin King.

    Talk about a stress-free experience purchasing my first home! Having Erin King as my realtor was the best decision. He knows his stuff and helped me get a great price on my dream first home in a seller’s market. He did a tremendous job … More negotiating. There’s no pressure with him and he’s not going to let a buyer settle for a home that isn’t the right fit. There were no surprises throughout the closing process as he keeps his buyers in the loop. Even when a minor issue came up with the appraisal, he called me with his plan to remedy the problem and it was fixed that week. Erin truly looks out for his clients, alerting of any red flags but is reassuring about bumps during the process that can be easily handled — that’s why his wealth of knowledge and experience is such an asset, he’s seen it all. A bonus: he’s really nice and funny! Great person to work with. I highly recommend him.

    This was my first time buying a house and Erin made the entire process seamless. His knowledge and attitude allowed me to decide on a house with confidence and the fact that he is on your corner during the entire process, does make you … More very at ease. Buying a first house didn't have to be scary. Who knew!

    Erin is by far the best realtor I worked with. I really enjoyed working with him. He has a wealth of knowledge about the housing market as well as home inspection. He is also a great negotiator. Was able to close on my house in 28 day … More and i had zero sleepless night. Didn't have to worry about a thing. Everytime I had a question he always had an answer and always returned my calls promptly. Erin is my realtor for life. I Will be referring Erin to all my friends and family members.

    My experience working with Erin was by far the best I have ever encountered with a realtor. He quickly identified important aspects that I wanted in a home and was able to narrow down key properties to consider. In addition Erin’s displayed … More strong knowhow through his extensive knowledge of the areas and market I was considering. Balancing pros/cons and keeping me well informed at every step. By leveraging his strong listen skills and attention to detail we found my dream home in a very short time. Erin continued to support me throughout the sales process and well after to ensure my expectations were met and exceeded. I would absolutely recommend Erin to any of my colleagues, friends and family on future home purchases.
