Why do you need a real estate agent anyway?

It’s a good question.

In today’s digital age, there are so many online resources and DIY guides, you might wonder if hiring a real estate agent is still necessary—or worth it.

We know we’re biased, so we’ll let the numbers speak for themselves:

  • According to Nerdwallet, buyers who used an agent successfully negotiated a median home price that was 9.6% lower than unrepresented buyers.

  • According to the last National Association of Realtors (NAR) survey, homes sold through real estate agents sold for approximately $100,000 more than those sold by owners alone.

What exactly do real estate agents bring to the table?

Whether you're buying or selling a property, the expertise and support of a professional real estate agent makes a significant difference—and it’s not just in the math.

Our dedicated support will reduce your stress and free up your valuable time, too.

Don’t go it alone. Partner with a real estate agent who cares about your unique situation.

What else do we provide?

Expert knowledge and experience

You don’t have to be an expert to make excellent real estate decisions; you can count on us. 

"Lindsay Brown helped me buy and more recently sell my condo. She is the most responsive and reliable person I have ever met. If I could list her as my emergency contact I would. She is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and dependable." - Hope Lanphear, Slocum Home Team Client

Our years of experience in the real estate industry give us knowledge and information you might not have on your own—and that’s okay. It’s our job to know everything there is to know about real estate and the Rhode Island market.

That way, we can help you make informed decisions and avoid costly pitfalls that you might not spot otherwise.

What are the best moves you can make in this market?

Put our expertise to work for you.

Stress Reduction

Buying or selling a home is one of the most significant, exciting, and empowering things you’ll ever do—but without a real estate agent (or with the wrong one), it can also be incredibly stressful.

"Jan went above and beyond our long difficult process. She of course had no control over the obstacles that came along our journey, but her patience and dedication did not go unnoticed. She helped with anything she could as it was hard for us to deal with certain issues from a 16 hour distance from the property. She even helped a loved one with some warm soup while sick." - Naysha Berrios, Slocum Home Team Client

An excellent real estate agent reduces your stress by handling all the details and complexities of the process. They manage the scheduling of showings, communication with potential buyers or sellers, and ensure that every step progresses smoothly. This allows you to focus on your day-to-day life while knowing that a professional is taking care of your real estate needs.

Market Insights and Pricing Expertise

Setting the right price for a property is crucial, whether you're buying or selling.

For sellers, an overpriced home can sit on the market for too long, while underpricing can mean losing out on potential profit. For buyers, an offer that’s too low will lose you an opportunity, while one that’s too high will lose you money.

Great real estate agents use their knowledge of the local market, recent sales data, and their own experience to recommend a competitive value. We understand how to balance market conditions with your personal financial goals to achieve the best outcome.

Not sure what to do? Let’s make a personalized game plan to reach your goals.

Personalized Guidance

Every real estate transaction is unique, and a one-size-fits-all approach never works.

An article titled “how to sell your house” doesn’t know the nuances of your situation. We do. 

The best real estate agents provide personalized guidance tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. We take the time to understand your preferences, financial situation, and long-term goals, offering advice and strategies that align with your best interests.

Access to Comprehensive Listings

It’s true—you can see plenty of property listings on Zillow or Redfin. But only real estate agents have access to the most comprehensive and up-to-date databases, including the local MLS (Multiple Listing Service).

Because of this access, we have information about properties that may not be publicly listed—including those that aren’t on the market quite yet. As a result, we can provide you with a broader range of options that match your wishlist and make sure you don’t miss out.

Skilled Negotiation

In real estate, negotiating the best deal requires skill, experience, and finesse. Great real estate agents are trained negotiators who can’t wait to advocate on your behalf. Whether you’re trying to get the best price for a property you’re selling or negotiating terms for a home you want to buy, our expertise will get you where you want to be.

A Professional Network

Experienced real estate agents have an extensive network of professionals that can be priceless during the buying or selling process. From home inspectors and contractors to mortgage brokers and attorneys, they can connect you with trusted experts who provide essential services. This network ensures that you have access to reliable professionals who can help facilitate a smooth transaction—no matter what your goals are.

Let’s chat about your goals for the future and how we can make them a reality.

Legal and Paperwork Assistance

This is the boring stuff. Buying or selling a home involves a substantial amount of paperwork, including legal documentation. The sheer amount can be overwhelming—even more so if you're not familiar with real estate laws and regulations. That’s why you need an experienced real estate agent with a strong support team to guide you, ensuring that everything is completed accurately and on time. With our support, you’ll avoid mistakes that could delay the process or even derail the deal.

In conclusion...

While social media and DIY guides might tempt you to navigate the real estate market on your own, the benefits of hiring a truly expert real estate agent are undeniable.

Our expertise, negotiation skills, and comprehensive support make your journey more efficient, less stressful, and ultimately more successful. Whether you're buying a home, selling one, or investing in real estate, a knowledgeable agent is an invaluable ally in achieving your real estate goals.

Where can you find the right agent? You already have.
