( — August 12, 2018) — VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – A Virginia Beach Realtor addressed on Monday a major confusion that potential home buyers and sellers have about using a big real estate company or searching for a top real estate agent.

When you are looking to buy or sell a house most of the time you will need assistance because there is a lot of paperwork and legal stuff required to sell or buy a house. So that means even if you find a house on Zillow you are still going to need someone to represent you.

So how do you know who to choose?

You might feel safe going with one of the big names like Keller Williams Realty, Century 21, RE/MAX, Coldwell Banker, etc. You figure that if the company has been around for a while that they must be good at what they do, right?

The other option would be to search for a top earning Real Estate Agent or Realtor in Virginia Beach, Virginia Beach. In case you don’t know, a Realtor or Real Estate Agent are basically the same thing. They have both been certified to be a Real Estate Agent in the state of Virginia.

“The only difference is a Realtor has taken an ethics class and is a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and Virginia Association of Realtors (VAR). They are typically held to a higher ethical standard then a normal Real Estate Agent,” said Austin Frangoules with Austin James Team.

If you decide to go with a Top Real Estate Agent in Virginia Beach you will find that you will end up getting better results then trying to just go with a Big-Name Company. Why is that you might be thinking:

The reason is when it comes to buying or selling a house a deal can easily be held up for a number of different reasons. For example, there could be a problem with the title on the house. See what Austin has to say:

“We ran into a big problem, it had title issues. Somewhere down the line the title didn’t pass down right. Two people that inherited a house never signed. Everyone at my company was saying to just submit it to the title insurance and wait a couple months to see what happens.

No, no! Why are we going to wait a couple months? Who do we need to find?

I got the two names and drove to their house personally and negotiated with them to get them to sign over their right to the house. It took a couple days, but I got it done. So now the person trying to sell owned 100% of the home and they could close the deal,” said Austin.

You can see with the example from Austin’s case that without the Realtor tracking down the title problem and fighting to ensure the deal would close the house may have never sold. Everyone else he talked to said to just wait but he didn’t accept that and fought for it.

If you find a good Top Real Estate Agent or Realtor to represent you then that is what you should be looking for. Someone who is looking out for your best interest and is going to put in the hard work to make sure that the house you want to buy, or sell doesn’t get lost at the last minute when a problem comes up.

At the end of the day it comes down to the individual person you are hiring to represent you. They may be working for a big company but not have the drive, work ethic or passion to be there when you really need them. The only way to know is to check the reviews the individual real estate agent or realtor has received or ask for references.

He has lived in Virginia Beach his whole life and is ranked in the top 3% of Real Estate Agents in the local area and all of Hampton Roads for the past three years. He works with Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices for real estate services and he has received the following awards:

– Top 3% of Buyer’s Agents in 2016

– Top 33% of Listing Agents in 2016

– Top Agent in October 2016 – $1,939,900 sold

– Rookie of the Year Award in 2015
