The Critical Role of a REALTOR in a property sale transaction: Problem Solving!

There are nearly 200 actions, steps, processes etc. in a typical real estate deal that a broker facilitates to help achieve a successful sale.

These are outlined in a published document " The Critical Role of the REALTOR® " in a property sale transaction.


Our most important role as your agent can be summed up by this one sentence ->

We solve problems that arise in real estate transactions.

Not every property sale is the same.

In a "typical" Real Estate Transaction the agent deals with variances that arise with any or all the following:

  • Negotiation of Contracts
  • Financing
  • Inspections
  • Insurance
  • Appraisals
  • Surveys
  • Title work
  • Deed
  • Escrow
  • Possession.

There are nuances in real estate transactions involving :

  • Bankruptcy
  • Divorce
  • Estates
  • FSBO
  • Short Sales
  • Foreclosure/REO
  • Contingencies
  • Multiple Offers
  • Less Common Financing (203K)
  • Land Contracts

This requires discernment on the part of the REALTOR to identify the need for further consultation or referral if beyond their scope of practice.

Experience comes not only in the number of years of practice in the business, but in the number and variety of successful closed transactions. You learn more from the problem transaction than from an easy normal cash deal.

We've been blessed over the past 14 years with a variety of difficult transactions, many scenarios that were not typical, yet closed successfully.

Here are a few stories from past clients describing our service.
