No matter the industry, professionals enjoy working with professionals… and the real estate industry is no different. When it comes to the many services needed during the purchase or sale of a home, your REALTOR® can be a great resource to connect you with other high-quality professionals.
Whether you need a lender, attorney, mover or other service provider, ask your REALTOR® for recommendations.
Some states have adopted regulations that require REALTORS® who recommend service providers to make sure the providers are licensed by the state. Additionally, the REALTOR® must disclose any relationship that they might have in any service provider they recommend. For example, if the REALTOR® owns a title company and recommends that you use it, they must inform you that they own the title company.
In most cases, your REALTOR® will provide you with a list of multiple service providers that they recommend. You can then make your own selection, but you are not required to use a provider recommended by the agent.
