Why Use A REALTOR®?

logo web R blueAll real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR "®" logo on the business card or other marketing and sales literature. REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again. Our members abide by a strict code of ethics and have access to a wide variety of business services that are not available to non-REALTORS. This gives them a competitive edge in the marketplace, enabling them to provide superior services to buyers and sellers of real property.

A Guide to Buying and Selling a Home

REnews-laptop-mobile-phone-tabletLike finding the right house, selecting a REALTOR® you can trust and comfortably work with is paramount. Just as you wouldn't be casual in the selection of your doctor or your attorney, you shouldn't take the selection of your REALTOR® lightly. Indeed, the best way to find such a professional is through recommendations from family and friends. Of course, you should interview several REALTORS® before you choose one. If you're selling your home, you should ask the candidates how they plan to market your home, what pricing advice they can offer, and what other suggestions they can provide to further enhance the desirability of your home.

 In presenting a property to the market, remember that one of the most important cosmetic and warming elements of your home is its exterior landscape.   Consider it gift wrap. Whether you’re buying or selling your house, a REALTOR® member of the California Desert Association of REALTORS® can help you realize the American dream of home ownership.

With the utmost professionalism, a strict code of ethics and a passion for the business, members of the California Desert Association of REALTORS® use the latest technology to help you in a search for a new home or to sell your present home. Let members of the California Desert Association of REALTORS® use their know-how with the Multiple Listing Service to find the right house in the right community for you... or to find the right buyer.

Whether you're buying or selling, ask candidates about the transaction to evaluate their knowledge. Ask for--and check--references. And, finally, ask yourself whether you will feel comfortable working closely with this individual in the months ahead.
