    What’s the Difference Between a Team and an Individual Agent?

    Here’s how a team differs from an individual agent.

    We at The Parsons Real Estate Team are exactly that: a team. This means we work differently than an individual agent.

    An individual agent tries to handle every little thing involved in a home sale, which can be hundreds of tasks—meeting with photographers, talking to escrow companies, etc. So many people are involved in a home sale. That’s not even mentioning the advertising side of things. You’d think that the advent of the internet would’ve made things easier, but it actually means we have to coordinate even more platforms.

    It’s hard for a single agent to show properties—or, if they have a listing, to show it themselves. A lot of listing agents will just stick a lockbox on the door and let other buyer’s agents show the home. The problem in this situation, though, is that those buyer’s agents don’t know much about the home and the potential upgrades you’ve made to it.

    “We want to ensure we’re giving the best customer service and not dropping the ball anywhere.”

    A team like ours, on the other hand, has specialists for each phase of the real estate transaction. For example, Tia, our transaction coordinator, handles all of our paperwork so that nothing gets missed. Tom, our marketing liaison, schedules photos and showings. This frees up our agents to meet with clients, attend inspections, and show properties (including our own listings), which we find very valuable. We want to ensure we’re giving the best customer service and not dropping the ball anywhere.

    If you have questions about this topic or want to know more about how we can market your home, don’t hesitate to call or email our office. We’d love to help you.
