In this day and age there is so much information on the internet that anyone with access to the World Wide Web can become an expert on just about anything, right?  Here in Jacksonville NC, I encounter people all the time that believe that they know all they need to know about buying, selling and renting real estate.   There are lots of little things that until you actually have purchased, sold or rented a home here, you would not know.  It’s really in your best interest to put in some work researching area REALTORS and find a few you think you might want to work with.  Interview them, do your homework on whom you believe you can put your trust in for getting through the process.  It can be very stressful if you choose someone that doesn’t answer the phone when you call, or call you back in a timely manner, or respond to your emails & texts.  That can make your experience less than ideal.  And every purchase or sale is unique, you need an experienced REALTOR that will be there to answer all of your questions, concerns and guide you through all the steps of the process.  You should feel like you are their only client, or at least you should feel you are important to them.  You should never feel like you are bothering them, if you have a legitimate question that needs to be answered.  Of course, you also need to understand that while they should treat you as a very important person, we REALTORS do have some down time occasionally.  We have a personal life, children, grandchildren, spouses, etc. so, there will be occassions where we are unavailable.
