The Real Estate Agent/Broker: Your Magic Bullet
Information may not be reliable

Sometimes it can be hard to figure out where to start when buying a new home, especially for the first time--or, when selling if you haven’t kept a good relationship with your previous agent.

Sometimes it can be hard to figure out where to start when buying a new home, especially for the first time--or, when selling if you haven’t kept a good relationship with your previous agent. There are a lot of things to consider, to say the least!

The best way to navigate this complex process is to hire someone who knows all the ins and outs of the process. Real estate agents who are also licensed brokers are the full package. Real estate agents complete some education and training, but not nearly as much as a licensed broker. In order to earn your broker's license, you have to complete nearly four times the amount of educational hours, and pass a licensing exam similar to the bar exam for lawyers. When you work with someone who is both an agent AND a broker, you have a package deal that offers you not only sales knowledge, but also the best financial path to get you into your dream home, or else to help sell your home to the ideal customer for the ideal price.

When finding or selling a home in northern California, Sacramento area realtors are not hard to find. But there are only a handful of agents that also hold a broker's license. Those with a broker's license have the advantage of more education, more extensive and overall knowledge of the industry, and can integrate both the sales side and the financing side information to make your experience not only the smoothest but also the best value.

Buying or selling a home means interacting and working with a bunch of different people who handle different parts of the process. The first time you buy or sell, you may be overwhelmed with how many different people are involved in this process. When you choose a real estate agent who also will be the broker in the real estate deal, it means you have one person you can trust with nearly everything throughout the process. They will work to get you the best deal and the best value because they are working both sides of your contract. They can often work out a better deal for you because they do not have to split their earnings with someone else on the deal.

Of course, you want the best person dealing with your real estate matters. A real estate agent/broker is the most highly qualified and best educated. Brokers are held to a higher professional quality which will certainly benefit you in your buying or selling process.

Combination realtor/brokers are harder to find as it takes a lot of work to get to that level.
