Realtors are an essential part of the real estate process in Florida. However, in some cases, realtors can often find themselves in a tough spot, as they have two contradicting roles; one as a salesperson and the other as an advisor or consultant. Realtors certainly aim to provide support to both sellers and buyers throughout the real estate process, however, it is important to consider that they only receive payment once they close a deal.
Considering there may be some things your realtor may not tell you, it’s important to have an experienced real estate attorney on your side.

So how can one know if a realtor is providing the most honest advice and best service? Buying and selling a home is a financial and emotional investment and moving is costly. Your realtor won’t tell you, but it’s important to interview potential realtors before committing to one. For example, it is helpful to know how many clients your potential realtor works with at a particular time and how well they know the areas, which you are interested in buying or selling real estate. Realtors do not want to be questioned in this way by potential clients however it is crucial to hire a knowledgeable, honest and available adviser.
To help you become more confident in the type of property you are interested in purchasing or to understand prices in areas you are selling, Zillow can be used as a tool for real estate “window shopping”. Realtors often look down upon Zillow, however some may not tell their clients that it actually can be helpful to use to develop a greater idea of what the client is interested in.
Lastly, your realtor might not be happy about this, but the truth is, your real estate attorney has a more important role than your realtor! Hiring a real estate attorney will ensure your legal options are protected and that all documents are completed precisely. Often times they will also provide guidance during the closing process.
