Page 106 Summer 2011 Call the GuruAre you in awe of Marco, Florida's crown jewel? Do you want to know what to buy? Call me, the guru, direct at 239.592.3000, 24 hrs. I will interview you over the phone, at your place, over lunch or the Starbucks is on me. I am an expert listener. No pushy salesman - no sales pitch - just facts. Marco sells itself and I will help you make the wisest decision. There is something for everybody in all price ranges, categories and some, would be fi nanced by the owner.Welcome Summer visitors If you are visiting us from abroad, there are misconceptions many people have about Realtors and how real estate works here, since it is quite different from Europe and other areas.If you are interested in purchasing a condo, lot or business you should work with only one Realtor. Why? Because we all work together here and have access to all available proper-ties through our Multiple Listing Service. You don't have to call each ad you see in a paper or magazine. Realtors don't sell only properties listed by themselves. Any Realtor can sell you virtually any condo, home, townhouse, villa, cottage, vacant lot, business or commercial property. So call the Realtor you have chosen with ads in your hand and he will do all the research. The seller pays the Realtor's commis-sion. When you work with only one Realtor, it is a time saver, because it avoids being shown the same property by more than one agent.Make known your desiresBe candid and frank about your require-ments. Set the price range in which you want to buy. Ask lots of questions. Be open-minded. Take time to view a home or condo. Don't judge a home simply by driving by the exterior. You will be spending more of your time inside the home so let the Realtor show you the inside before you make a judgment. Listen to your Realtor's suggestions about the different areas and different types of property.If you should become dissatisfi ed with your Realtor for any reason or have a personality confl ict and the problem cannot be resolved, you can go to another Realtor, but be courte-ous and inform the fi rst Realtor so that he or she will not continue looking for property for you. Many buyers think we Realtors make too much money, but our commission is usually divided four ways - between the listing broker, listing sales associate, selling broker and sell-ing sales associate.Use your multi-talented Realtor A Realtor brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the business of buying or selling a home. In fact, a licensed real estate profes-sional provides much more than the service of helping you fi nd the home of your dreams. Realtors are not just sales agents. They are expert negotiators, seasoned fi nancial advis-ers and superb navigators around the local neighborhood! And they're members of the National Association of Realtors* (NAR) and must abide by a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice enforced by the NAR. A professional Realtor is your best resource when approach-ing the buying or selling of a home.Feel free to call me on my direct line cell phone 239.592.3000 or stop by our main of-fi ce at 307 N Collier Blvd, just one block north of Residents' Beach and San Marco Road.
