Consider the Advantages of a Local Realtor

Consider the Advantages of a Local Realtor – Looking to purchase a home in a particular city can be a daunting experience. There are many factors to consider such as neighbourhoods, schools, community centres, transit and many others. Using a local realtor to find the perfect home for you and/or your family does have its advantages.

The Region of York is made up of nine communities (Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King, Markham, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Whitchurch-Stouffville) and has become a melting pot of people. Having an agent who knows each community inside and out is imperative when looking to purchase a home. RE/MAX Benczik Team Realty has over 28 years of real estate experience buying and selling in York Region and has a diverse team that can speak 10 languages.

Having knowledge about a community is one sign of a good local realtor. However, using a local realtor who lives and has its business in the community is the sign of a great local realtor. Leslie Benczik has lived in Markham for 47 years and grew up in the community of Unionville. His business, RE/MAX All-Stars Benczik Team Realty, is located in the heart of Markham on Historic Markham Main Street. All of his team members live and work within the community ensuring that the business’s expertise is York Region.

There is a lot of conveniences when using someone who lives and works in the area you want to buy. You will have a lot more flexibility for scheduling appointments to visit properties, as travel considerations will not be an issue.

The relationship a realtor has with their peers is an important part of the real estate process. The local realtor that has grown to be the trusted name people can count on will receive respect from their fellow realtors. Also, the listing realtor may have already had dealings with the realtor in the past and could enjoy working with them. This could benefit you, as the sellers may prefer to work with the local realtor they trust.

If you are moving to a new city, you will want to ensure that the local realtor has full access to the local listings available. This not only includes listings being delivered through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) but having access to those properties that are not advertised to the general public. At RE/MAX All-Stars Benczik Team Realty you can view properties that are “Coming Soon” or “Exclusive” to the team.
