My “Ah-Ha Moment”!

light bulb education property guidingWhy “Property Guiding LLC”?  I’ll tell you why.  It’s simple.  It’s easy.  It’s because of one reason.  EDUCATION.  After I got my real estate license I soon realized how little the general public knew about the real estate process…or as I like to call it, “the real estate maze”, because Lord knows it’s no simple process.  I’m not trying to say people aren’t intelligent enough to understand it; what I’m saying is that most people are either misinformed or not educated on the subject whatsoever.  Think about it, most of us will buy 1 or many more homes in our lifetime.  This is one of the largest purchases we’ll make in our lives and could possibly determine the outcome of our long-term wealth.  So, why do so many go through the “maze” blindly?  It’s a 2-in-1 answer:   They rely solely on their real estate agent &  Their real estate agent doesn’t educate them.

Herein uncovers the flaw.  When working with clients, lots of questions come up throughout the process…

1.)    Market & Housing Questions

2.)    Financing Questions

3.)    Inspection & Property Condition Questions

4.)    Legal Questions

5.)    Title Questions

…and the list goes on.  My clients expect me know just about everything just short of the meaning of life :)!  In all seriousness, when I work closely with someone there are expectations.  A client expects me to be knowledgeable, which I am confident in.  However, in no way will I portray myself as an expert in the last 4 of the above categories.  Although, when someone enters into a transaction, I firmly believe that they DESERVE experts in all areas of the process.  Follow me here…

Don’t you hate it when you call a customer service line and they pass you to 5 different people in 5 different departments, regarding the SAME subject matter at hand?  Yeah, we all do.  It was after quite a few closings that the light bulb finally went off for me!  That’s exactly what we do in real estate.  Got a legal question about the property?  Here’s my guys phone number.  Oh, you need a different loan?  Here’s a card, email this woman.  Etcetera, etcetera!  At the end of the day, I can’t be licensed in all the categories above, but I CAN finally offer my clients ONE place to find the answers.  (Here comes the shameless plug)  You can find it here, at PROPERTYGUIDING.COM!  (Patting myself on the back)  It’s a good thing that I know really great people in the industry that just so happen to also be experts in their field :).  Put us all together and this is what you get!  Smiling faces, kind hearts, knowledgeable noggins, ethical practices and a drive to keep learning!  Our mission is to educate.  We can now answer our client’s questions in one place without watering down the message or confusing you with a bunch of contact information.  So, thank you for visiting and re-visiting.  We’re here to be a resource for you!
