Real Estate Agent Endorsements
As an appraiser, I come in contact with Real Estate Agents on a daily basis. The number one way that I’m in contact with agents is thru verification of data. Real estate agents are appraisers' links to the thoughts of the buyers and sellers. Without understanding what triggers the decisions of buyers and sellers and verifying specifics of a deal that do not get recorded into public record, we cannot reliably apply comparable sales to our subject properties.
In the process of contacting agents, some come across as more knowledgeable and willing to help appraisers. From this, I can speculate that these agents are more likely to be helpful to their clients. As a way to give back, I am providing links to some of these agents on my website:
