Working with a Real Estate Agent (A Buyers' Agent)

A good Realtor® can show you more suitable properties, offer valuable advice, and coach you through the entire home buying process.  A Realtor® helps you find the home AND they help negoiate the purchase contract to help you own the home desired.

Do I Really Need To Use A Realtor®?

You can do your home search by yourself, but why should you? At Semonin we have hundreds of experienced associates and they will be at your side, making the process of finding the perfect home easier, faster and a lot more fun.  Let their knowledge work for you.  By the way, the seller is paying the commission of the agent working with you.

Whether your home search begins with Internet websites, driving around, speaking with friends and family or looking a print advertisements we can help save you time. A Realtor® can help you see homes faster and they work hard to provide up-to-date information about new homes on the market that fit your criteria.

Some people think that if they have several agents looking for homes on their behalf, they'll find a house more quickly. Like most relationships, the buyer-agent relationship thrives on communication, loyalty and trust. By working exclusively with one agent, you'll improve both the process and the results.

Finding The Right Agent For You

Chemistry is important. So are credentials. Above all, you'll want an experienced agent who has the resources of a leading real estate firm behind them, such as Semonin REALTORS.

Below are some helpful hints on finding and working with a Realtor® 

  • Ask friends, family members, neighbors or co-workers for referrals.  A referral is simply a recommendation of someone you trust who states, in their opinion, a particular agent will do a good job.
  • Trust your intuition.  That good ole gut feeling you get when you talk with someone for the first time is not something to take lightly.  Real estate agents come in all shapes, sizes and personalities.  Just like buyers and sellers.  Human nature strikes again so just pay attention to your intuition.
  • Share with your sales associate (real estate agent) as much as possible about your lifestyle, tastes, needs and dreams for your home.
  • Focus your search on a few geographic areas.  If you have lived in the community for years this is easier.  If you are moving into the Greater Louisville area then our real estate agents knowledge becomes even more advantageous to you.
