Why Choose A Realtor®

REALTORS® aren’t just real estate agents. We belong to the National Association of REALTORS® and we subscribe to its strict code of ethics.


REALTORS® aren’t just real estate agents. We are members of the professional organization called the National Association of REALTORS® and we subscribe to its strict code of ethics.

  • A REALTOR® is the only real estate professional who has vowed to treat their clients ethically
  • A REALTOR® finds you a dream home and protects your right to it.
  • A REALTOR® negotiates the best price and uses the industry’s leading market data to do it.
  • A REALTOR® knows your neighborhood, the neighbors, and volunteers to make it better.
  • The REALTOR® Code of Ethics makes REALTORS® your advocate in one of the largest transactions you’ll ever make.
  • A REALTOR® isn’t just a home or business search, it’s a human connection to the best property for you.
  • A REALTOR® is supported by the nation’s largest professional trade organization, protecting your property and community long after the contracts are signed.

Buying a home is a big deal! A home is so much more than some lumber and shingles. This is probably the biggest purchase you will have in your lifetime. REALTORS® understand that! We are on your side as your advocate, and as an objective third party to help you stay focused on the issues most important to you. That’s Who We R.

If you need more reason, statistically your home sells for more. Depending on your market, agent listed homes sell for about 26% more than For Sale By Owner homes (2020 NAR) . And yes, some of that is because of our access as a REALTOR® to the Multiple Listing Service which is a huge marketing push out to other agents, buyers, and national websites. Another piece of that puzzle is experience in pricing, helping you understand how to get your property ready to sell, and being an expert in our hyper-local market.

As a REALTOR® we know how important it is to have people… the right people available to handle any kind of emergency. Need a great plumber? No problem. Need a recommendation for an attorney? Absolutely. Need to know where the closest dog boarding facility is? We have you covered. Need a rockstar agent down in Sarasota, Florida? Coming right up! Our digital rolodex is extensive,

Negotiations. There are always negotiations. Offers, counter-offers, counter-offers to the counter-offers. And then negotiations on inspection. And then possibly negotiations with appraisal. While the TV shows make it look flashy and fancy, often it is anything but! As a REALTOR®, we want you to have someone in your corner explaining your options so each change is laid out clearly and articulated precisely as intended.

Which brings up the next reason you should have a REALTOR® on your side – contracts, documents, and forms. We are trained to know which documents are needed legally to make sure both the buyer and the seller are filling out proper paperwork. Not every transaction is exactly the same, but we are at the ready to make sure you are covered legally and at the end of the day you have a property that is either bought or sold free and clear. When you have questions, we are just a simple phone call away and your contract questions can be answered. 

From beginning of the transaction, to the end we will be with you every step of the way. That includes through appraisal. Often this is seen as a huge storm ahead, but we have been over, around, and through appraisals and we can navigate calm or choppy appraisal storms for you. Let us handle the transaction so you can handle the move. You are always in the captain’s chair, but we want you to have the best First Mate REALTOR® – Beam Real Estate to be your guide!
