What Is a True Relocation Specialist?

There are a lot of “sacred” terms in real estate. We in the business toss these words around without much thought but does the average consumer know what they mean?

Just now I Google’d “Louisville KY relocation specialist“. Lo and behold, look what came up!

Now, a good portion of my business is helping people relocate to Louisville from outside the state or even outside the country, so I have a great deal of experience in this area. But what I wanted to write about today were relocation companies.

Some, like Cartus, negotiate with the largest U.S. companies to the benefit of both. But do the home buyers benefit? The answer, as you might expect is, “sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t.”

The laws are such that the consumer has the right to use whichever real estate professional they like without being forced into choosing a particular agent deemed acceptable by their employer. There are times when it’s financially in the best interest of the consumer to use that agent, but I’ve seen instances where it certainly wasn’t.

Bottom line is, “Get recommendations!” Find someone you trust, and ask them if their Realtor did a great job. I pride myself on first class customer service for all my real estate clients and as my moto goes, “Top agents put you first!”

If you’re considering a move to Louisville KY, I’d love to chat with you and see how I might best help you!
