Why Work With a Real Estate Team Instead of a Single Agent?


Why should you hire a real estate team rather than an individual agent to help you buy or sell a home?

Why should you hire a real estate team instead of a solo agent? There are a number of benefits to working with a team.

On our team, we have eight people working for you for the price of one. First of all, we have a group of buyer specialists. These agents are solely dedicated to helping buyers find homes.

In our market, we often get military or career transfers who only have one week to find a home. They say, “We want to be looking at homes from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.” The good news is that we are able to help you do that thanks to our buyer specialists.

On the other hand, our listing specialists only work with sellers. Their whole focus is to make sure that the home sells. Listing specialists properly market the home and save our sellers thousands of dollars. Since our listing specialists are dedicated to selling your home, they can be very responsive whenever a potential buyer has questions about the home.

In addition to our agents, we have a complete administrative team. Our listing manager helps sellers by making sure all the marketing for their home is done properly.

Our listing and buyer specialists are able to focus solely on you.
Once the house goes under contract, our transaction coordinator steps in to dot the i’s and cross the t’s. The transaction coordinator helps you get from contract to closing.

Finally, we have the director of first impressions at our office to greet our clients and make sure they're being taken care of.

If you’re still wondering why we’ve assembled this team of professionals, think of it this way: When is the last time you went to your doctor’s office and saw the doctor at the reception desk? Does your attorney answer their office phone and book their own schedule, or do they have an assistant?

Just like other professionals, we have broken down the system into individual jobs. That way, each member of our team can help you have the smoothest transaction possible.

If you have any other questions about our team or you would like to learn more about buying or selling a home, just give us a call or send us an email. My team and I would be happy to help you!

Property taxes in Colorado Springs—how do you pay them, calculate them, and dispute them?
 

Colorado has some of the lowest taxes in the United States. They are calculated based on the county assessor's opinion of the home’s value multiplied by the assessment percentage and the tax rate.

Property taxes in Colorado are paid in arrears and are due on April 15. You can actually find all of this information and more on your local county assessor's website, whether you’re in El Paso, Teller, Douglas, or Denver County. If you disagree with your home’s assessed value, most assessor’s offices have an online protest process, which is very simple and easy.

You can protest your property taxes online.
If you have any questions about how to do this or you need any help, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
