When it comes to buying a home, whether you are a rookie homebuyer or
have gone through the process many times, having a local real estate
expert who is well versed in the neighborhood you are looking to move
into, as well as the trends of that area, should be your goal.
great example of an agent who is in your corner and is always looking
out for your best interests is one of the main characters on
ABC’s Modern Family, Phil Dunphy.
those who aren’t familiar, the character Phil is a Realtor with a huge
heart who always strives to do his best for his family and his clients.
In one recent episode, Phil even shared the oath that he created and holds himself accountable to:
my honor, I promise to aid in man's quest for shelter, to recognize I'm
not just in the business of houses -- I'm in the business of dreams in
the shape of houses. To disclose all illegal additions, shoddy
construction, murders, and ghosts. And to put my clients' needs before
While this might seem silly, and it
was definitely written with humor in mind, the themes of helping someone
achieve the American Dream and putting a client's needs above your own
are not to be taken lightly.
When you make the decision to enter the housing market, as either a buyer or a seller, make sure you look for an agent who exemplifies these values and will help you through every step of the process.
