Find an El Cajon Realtor

An El Cajon realtor is an expert on the local variations in neighborhoods, prices, schools, transportation, healthcare, and recreation. In other words, let a person who is a professional in the real estate field give you the benefit of all the training and experience that is implied in the designation, "realtor." For example, an El Cajon realtor can explain that the list price is merely the seller's advertised price, and may only be a ballpark figure for what the seller is hoping to get.

For a lay person, real estate terminology can be confusing, and the general public is certainly not knowledgeable about the applicable laws. The easiest way to start looking for a good realtor is to go online and search for "San Diego realtors," or some other relevant category. Read their websites, choose a few realtors who appeal to you, and arrange personal interviews.

What to Look For

You might notice immediately that there are different designations for those who are in the business of San Diego County real estate. A "salesperson" or "realtor-associate" (RA) must work under the supervision of a broker. Only someone who has met the requirements for training and experience may use the word "realtor" and use the logo "R."

Aside from credentials, realtors should not only be committed to sharing their expertise for your benefit, but should be willing to listen to your needs and preferences. After all, you are the one who will be living in your lovely East San Diego home, and you are the one who must fit your new home into your budget. If higher education is important to your family, a realtor should be able to inform you about Grossmont College and other local possibilities. Look for someone who is friendly, caring, and dedicated to serving you well.
