Cathy Carter - The Best Chandler REALTOR® You will Find

How often are you in contact with your Chandler REALTOR®? If you’ve hired a local agent to help you with the purchase of a new home in Chandler or help you sell your existing property, you may be wondering how often you should be in contact with your Chandler REALTOR®. Obviously, when you don’t hear from them for what you consider to be a reasonable amount of time, you want to be sure they’re still there working for you. How often then, should your Chandler real estate agent contact you or you contact them? Successful agents like Cathy Carter understand the importance of having excellent communication skills and welcomes calls from her clients, regardless of frequency. A real estate agent's job is providing a service, and that means taking care of their clients' needs and addressing any questions or concerns as they come up. 

Establish Plans For Communication With Your Chandler REALTOR®  

There really is no set schedule for how often an agent should contact you except that they should always keep you informed of pertinent information related to your home purchase or the sale of your property. However, once you’ve decided on the agent you wish to engage services with, it’s a good idea to set up in advance the parameters for "how often" and "how" you would like to communicate. Whether it’s daily or weekly phone updates, an email on an as-needed basis, texts for confirming appointments or short conversations, or voicemail messages -- its best to establish plans for communication with your Chandler REALTOR® from the get-go.

Some agents, when they are busy or out in the field, don't answer their cell phones and only return calls once or twice a day. If that doesn’t sit well with you, speak with your agent about it or find another one. A top Chander real estate agent like Cathy Carter is always available for her clients and never leaves her phone unanswered!

Reasons to Call Your Chandler Real Estate Agent

There are a lot of moving parts to real estate and If something is concerning you, no question you ask is a time waster or unreasonable. Real estate related topics a homebuyer or seller might have questions about and want to discuss with their agent include such things as property information, home prices, home buying or home selling steps, finding a mortgage or paying off a mortgage, home inspections, purchase offer presentation, counteroffer preparation, offer negotiation, comparable sales, repair requests, seller disclosures, closing process, and the list goes on. A good agent will welcome your call, and if they don’t have an answer for you right away, they will get back to you in a timely manner.

When Your Chandler REALTOR® Is Most Likely to Contact You

Whether you're a buyer or a seller, you can expect your Chandler REALTOR® to call you for situations such as when they've found you the perfect home in the right neighborhood; for scheduling a private viewing on a potential home; making an offer on a home; permission to have an open house at your home or give you feedback about the open house; a buyer wants to view your home or come back and see it again; an offer has been made on your home or your counteroffer has been approved/rejected; a prospective buyer has made an offer on a different home; a home inspection/photographer appointment is pending; a change is needed in your listing, or for any other pertinent information needed or that becomes available when buying or selling Chandler real estate

If you go several days or even weeks without hearing from your agent, you can certainly reach out to them, but that won’t necessarily change the fact that they have no news for you. Keep in mind that your agent’s primary work is behind the scenes such as attending other open houses and networking with other agents and brokers to spread the word about your Chandler home for sale. The wheels might be turning even though you might not be able to see all that's truly going on. 

The bottom line is that home buying and selling should not be a painful or stressful experience, nor should any buyer or seller ever worry about calling an agent if they have questions or concerns. Your agent’s job is to keep the lines of communication open as they protect your interests, advocate for you, and handle the complexities of the real estate transaction for the best possible outcome.
