A real estate transaction can be an exciting thing to experience, but it can also be nerve-wracking and stressful. Your experience will largely depend on the circumstances surrounding your transaction and, perhaps more importantly, the agent you’re working with.
A great agent will not only get you over the finish line to the best of their ability, but they can also change your life for the better. Here are eight ways:
1. They’ll show you they care
In today’s fast-paced world, it seems like everyone’s attention is in short supply. A great real estate agent will show you that’s not always the case, by listening and caring about you and your needs. Not only will being a good listener to help an agent do their job, but it’ll also show you that even in business, there are still people out there who care.
2. They can save you a lot of money
There’s an old expression, “If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.” Hiring a great agent can save you literally thousands of dollars, as the right agent will not only negotiate effectively, but also know what pitfalls to look for as the transaction moves along, saving you money in the process.
3. They can help you see things in a different way
One of the most overlooked aspects of hiring a great agent is just how much of an effect they can have on your perspective. For instance, you might think that you’re looking for something in particular, but a great agent can take what you asked for and find something that’s even better than anything you’ve ever considered. A great agent is like an expert matchmaker.
4. They’ll do more than help you buy or sell a home
A great real estate agent will go above and beyond for you. They’ll help you find contractors, give recommendations on design (if you’re open to them), and even help you navigate the restaurants in your new neighborhood. Great agents provide so much value because they want to be your go-to resource for anything to do with real estate.
5. They can find you something that no one else can
Great real estate agents aren’t necessarily miracle workers, but they’re close. A great agent will surprise you with something no one’s ever thought of before, whether it’s finding a property that you didn’t know about, or a solution to an otherwise complex problem. A great agent is proactive and instead of sitting around waiting, will make things happen for you.
6. They can take a lot of stress away
One of the best things about a great real estate agent is the peace of mind that comes from working with them. There are lots of things that can go wrong during a real estate transaction, and a great agent knows this and will not only anticipate issues ahead of time, but will shoulder the burden and solve problems for you, making it a low-stress experience.
7. They’ll go to battle for you when it counts
The right agent is like a general you can depend on when the going gets tough. From searching for the right property or buyer, to negotiating, to pushing the deal through despite all obstacles standing in the way… a great real estate agent won’t back down from adversity and will battle for your best interests at all times.
8. They can become a friend for life
Maybe your real estate agent is already your friend, but if not, with a great agent you might eventually become one. Real estate is much more about relationships than it is about individual transactions, and great agents know this. They also usually have the kind of infectious personality that you always want to be around. So don’t be afraid to form a lifelong friendship with your real estate agent, it could truly change your life.

“Given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure you use, it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38
It is the season of giving! Thinking about what Christ has given for me, my response is gratefulness and awe! Let this Christmas season be a time of praying for others, listening to their stories and then trying to help with their needs! Sometimes just being there and listening to someone is all that’s necessary.
Be a gift; be “present” and give yourself away! That’s what Christ wants from us! I pray that in the busyness and hustle and bustle of the season that you take time to be quiet and reflect, be thankful and purpose yourself to share Christ’s love with others!
If you need help with anything, please let me know! Merry Christmas and God bless you!

Happy Monday, y’all! I wanted to share a word of encouragement on #ModelMondays
I know at times I have been hard on myself and others for making a “mistake” but that’s not how God wants us to treat ourselves or others! You see, I confess that I have perfectionistic tendencies, but only because I care about what I do! What I do is my passion and I bring 110% to what I do! Making a mistake can be a burden that I — and you — do not need to bear!
I saw this sign this weekend and it was a sweet reminder that as long as my heart is pure and my efforts are admirable, it’s okay to make a mistake! Action begets action and inaction gets us nothing! Fear can hold you back from all God intends for you! Do not let it stop you!
Gary Keller says in his national bestseller, “The Millionaire Real Estate Agent” book, “One of the secrets to great success is to change your perspective on failure. You see, everyone experiences failures before they ultimately succeed. Some let their failures stop them. Some keep trying. People like Edison, Ford, and Lincoln chose to view failure as a learning experience to build on and not as a permanent defeat.”
What an encouragement! God’s Word says:
That we are to forgive others when they make a mistake, that includes forgiving ourselves as well! So don’t be so hard on yourself or others and by all means, absolutely do not give up or quit (on yourself or others)!
