Have you always wondered what the difference is between a full service real estate team vs. using an individual agent? Well I can tell you the difference because I have been on both sides! When I first started my career as a single agent it was so hard to keep up with every detail, every appointment, plus have time to find my clients the best deals out there, keep up with paperwork - all of it! I felt like I was a crazy person running around but always behind. When I started a team - that was when I was really able to provide top notch attention and care to our clients.
