The Importance of Choosing the Best Core Service Team
An essential part of the Real Estate process is guiding her clients to make the best decision for their investment by making sure the professionals, such as the Mortgage Lender, Home Inspector, and Title company, that her clients choose are as committed to the success of the transaction as she is. Nicole truly feels that the team of people her clients utilize set the tone for the entire process.
“Whether you are buying or selling, there are a lot of moving parts to each transaction, and there are professionals in charge of each of those parts, so it’s important that all of us professionals work together as a team. And as the saying goes, ‘a team is only as good as their weakest player’, that’s why I can never stress enough the importance of carefully choosing the Inspectors, Lenders, Title Clerks, etc. that a Buyer or Seller allow to be a part of their experience.”Get Started
