A lot of people think that a realtor is a realtor is a realtor. But the fact is, some realtors will be a good fit you and your situation, and some won't. I know personally that many of the clients I work with as a Realtor are people who I truly think I "vibe" with, which makes success in selling their home almost guaranteed. But what happens when you end up with a realtor who you don't vibe with?
You may have seen signs, billboards, and banners with the advertisement "We Buy Ugly Houses." For somebody who doesn't know anything about real estate investing, this might seem like a strange statement. Who would want to buy an ugly houses? Who exactly is the "we" mentioned on the billboards and ads?
