What Does a Real Estate Agent Do?

What does a real estate agent do? I turn dreams into reality. In July of 2022, I began helping a potential Buyer who found a home on the internet - that's where the process commonly begins.

They needed a trusted advisor to act as their eyes and ears in Florida.

They were out of state in Connecticut and looking for a second home for snow-birding and eventual retirement, knowing exactly where they wanted to be and with a specific budget in mind.

Over the course of several weeks, I researched each property they would send me, sent them available seller disclosures and documents, scheduled showings and shot walk through videos to give detailed onsite assessments of properties that were good candidates for them (real estate photos seldom tell the full story of a property).

We wrote a few offers in what was at the time a very strong Seller's market, and we got under contract, but personal circumstances forced them to cancel, and to put their dream on hold.

We kept in touch over many months while their online searches continued. In February 2024, the timing was right and the perfect unit came on the market just a couple doors down from a unit we had previously offered on, in a building overlooking the golf course. I immediately scheduled a same-day showing, shot a video walk through and advised on an offer price. We got a contract by the end of the following day.

Next came scheduling onsite inspections and carrying out the numerous steps guiding them to a successful closing, while coordinating with the Seller side, the Title company and the Condo Board.

Since no property is perfect, I negotiated repairs for some inspection items related to insurance, and the Seller agreed to fix those while providing a credit for the remaining ones.

They closed earlier this week, culminating a journey that began over a year and a half ago. They will begin remodeling using one of the general contractors I provided to them for quotes, and they will soon have a wonderful second home for their family to enjoy for many years to come.

It's incredibly rewarding to be a part of these life moments, and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to help clients achieve their real estate goals.  If you're considering buying or selling in Florida, I'd be honored to be your trusted advisor.
