With the growth of online tools, companies are quickly building products to serve the real estate community. After all, it’s a lucrative industry, home buying and selling will always be a thing - even if it does slow down, and companies around the world are diving in to make as much money off consumers as possible.
What are they selling? The ease. The ease of buying or selling a home online. The catch? You actually don’t benefit from these online quick-sale services. In fact, you could find yourself out of tens-of-thousands in cost difference. If you’re in the market to buy or sell, and are considering foregoing a real estate agent for an online service, be sure you read the fine print. You’ll often times find that you aren’t benefiting at all. Will they buy your home upfront to resale, so you don’t have to worry about the headache? Sure, but you may have been able to get $50,000 more for your house using a Realtor. Can you see and purchase your dream home through said services and “save” on agent commissions? Sure, but you’ll probably be overpaying for the home anyway.
The real estate industry is heavily regulated for licensed professionals to ensure the consumer is always getting the best representation for the best savings. These online services don’t require regulation and licensing, therefore, they can get away with fine print “scams.”
Be sure you do your research. A Realtor is there to make YOU the most money. Quick online services are focused on making their business the most money - not focused on how much you can sell your home for or how much you can save when you buy. Licensed professionals exist for a reason, be sure you don’t lose more than you can afford to by using a gimmicky online service that dubs buying and selling an “easy” process. Any good agent will make the process easy, minus general lending issues that may arise.

For David, the decision to pursue a career in real estate began as a cross-section for his many passions in marketing, sales, technology, and design. With his past industry experience in marketing and branding, he is uniquely qualified with the resources to market and sell your properties and extract the greatest value in the process.

He is dedicated to never stop serving his clients until they achieve their real estate goals and dreams in life. He wins by helping others win.
"I want my clients to know that I have their back and they can come to me anytime with any request, not just about real estate. Where you live and where you call home couldn't be more crucial and pivotal to your happiness and well being. That is why I make it my top priority to walk my clients seamlessly through the whole process. Aiming to alleviate the common stressors or headaches, and negotiating to get the best value possible in the transaction for my clients."
