Listening to your needs and carrying you through the sales process quickly, stress-free, with superior service. – The Ryan Hicks Team
What’s the difference between a house and a home?
A home not only checks off every box on your ‘wants and needs’ list, but it’s also located in the perfect community that your whole family will love. As a REALTOR® with over 20 years of experience, I understand the importance of finding the perfect home for your family. That’s why I take a consulting approach to real estate. So I can guide, advise and provide you with the necessary leverage and tools for a successful transaction and a happy, satisfying close.
What’s the difference between a real estate agent and a Realtor?
In order to become a Realtor, an agent needs to be a member of the National Association of Realtors®. As a member, a person subscribes to the standards of the association and its code of ethics. Essentially, the NAR holds agents to a higher standard. Membership with NAR also comes with access to real estate market data and transaction management services, among other benefits. Not all agents are Realtors®. Ensure that yours is!
Do I pay a fee for buyer representation?
No. Both the buyer and seller agents are compensated from the seller’s proceeds.
