My Mechanic Only Works Weekends - Usually - NOT

My Mechanic Only Works Weekends - Usually - NOT 

My Mechanic Only Works Weekends - Usually - NOT.  What if your mechanic only worked weekends? Would you choose to have your car worked on by someone who dabbles in car repair? Could you choose to let your needed tool of transport be handled by someone reading a fix-it manual, or watching a Youtube, or asking someone else for advice as they went along? Might you look for someone who has not been to the repair shop more than you have since you last needed service?  Probably not.

What about your hair dresser? Would you like to have your hair cut or styled or colored by a part time esthetician? Would you accept someone reading the directions from the package as a color-ologist? Do you want the one with the scissors to have been in the salon only once since you were there last? Probably not.

What about your carpenter? If a contractor has only built one deck in the last seven years, would you hire him to build your deck? Could you rely on his knowledge of the current code and building procedures for a deck in your town? Would you feel safe when your family or party guests gathered on the new deck?  Probably not.

Of course there's always the part time surgeon. There are many surgeons who only make cuts one or two times a year, just to have something to do in retirement. Not.

The world has become an environment of specialists. Real Estate Transactions are no different. A professional licensee is one who does more than dabble.

Real estate transactions happen in average peoples' lives only so often. When it becomes time to buy and/or sell, the process has probably changed from your last experience. Over my own decades of experience, the pages of forms have definitely changed, let alone the changes in privacy, seller liabilities, title questions, security, water, sewer and septicflood issues, licensee requirements, specific town ordinances, conservation issues, hazardous materials, etc.

I'd choose a real estate professional like I'd choose my mechanic, my barber, or my contractor, or my surgeon. I want them to have current daily experience that is relevant to my car or hair or deck or malady, and I want them to be a source of correct and current information. I expect them to know the process, to save me time and worry, and to provide the complete service that I need.

Real estate is one of the topics that people are comfortable talking about. So if you're looking to talk about something in social settings this season, choose real estate.  And remember:

Real Estate Professional - not just a hobby anymore.


If don't know how to choose an experienced real estate professional, we'd be glad to screen/interview professionals for you in any town, and make recommendations. It is common for people to not know what to ask when looking for an experienced real estate professional. We can also explain things like the differences between agents and brokers, Real-tors and non-real-tors.

The NAR research division reported in March of 2015 that people expect to own property for varying lengths of time:

When you're ready to buy or sell or both, we'd be glad to be a resource for you.  Merry Christmas.
