Why You Should Work With a REALTOR® and not a Real Estate Agent… (yes, there’s a difference)
Lisa: What the (heck) is going on here, Vinny? You (screwing) up this case or what?
Vinny Gambini: I explained it to you already, didn’t I? It’s procedure. I’m bound to (screw) up a little.
Lisa: A little? You’ve been thrown in jail twice.”
“Most of us have seen that hilarious movie, “My Cousin Vinny.” Vinny passed the Bar Exam (after SEVERAL attempts), but never followed through with his practice and procedure requirements. When it came down to it, his lack of practice, procedure and training cost him a night in jail! Yes, it was his best night of sleep, but how did his Clients feel?
Hiring a plain ol’ Real Estate Agent (not a REALTOR®) is like hiring Vinny. While Joe Pesci can turn his mishaps into a wild and crazy courtroom comedy, a Real Estate Agent may not have such a comedic outcome.
Remember, a REALTOR® is not a used car salesperson trying to rip you off. A bona fide REALTOR® is the ONE person in your corner who will protect your best interest throughout the entire real estate transaction. Find a REALTOR® you can trust and hire him/her to represent you during your home purchase or selling.
A REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® who is committed and required to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics. We are held accountable.
Still not sure what to do?
