When we started looking for a house, I realized that brokering my own deal was going to be difficult. However, I realized that things might be a lot easier if I could find a great real estate agent. We looked high and low, and we finally found an agent who we felt comfortable working with. When we sat down with him, it was amazing to see how much of a difference working with a trained professional made. We were able to choose which kind of house worked best for our budget, and it was great to find ourselves on the right track. My blog is about how to communicate properly with your real estate agent, so that you have as good of an experience as we did.
