Don't Replace Your Agent With The Internet



With the influx of new technology and web based solutions, it isn't a surprise that everything is moving fast into the era of the internet. From sites like Uber to Grubhub, we generally can pull up our phones or laptops to order what we want with ease. And with every industry being revolutionized by technology, the same methods are "attempting" to be applied to the real estate industry. 
We could all agree that the simplification of the process through paperwork would be much appreciated by agents and buyers/sellers alike; but the attempt of replacing the agent by sites like Zillow and other third party resources, can lead to a snowball affect of disaster. Think about real estate being smack dab in the middle of fast food and a doctor. You can use your mobile device to quickly place your order for a $20 meal, but when it comes to getting a surgery, you'll want to put that phone down and visit a professional. Now think of your real estate agent being in the middle of all of that. You can use your devices to look for a home, look at market data the way you look at WebMD, knowing not to take it too seriously because you need a real professional's input, but it's fun and gives you a general idea of what to expect. But there in lies the issue, the data online is an oversimplified version of what goes into the process of buying and selling. The same way it oversimplifies medical diseases and surgeries, you'd still expect to get a professional's diagnosis.
Although a real estate agent isn't quite like a doctor, the industry in it's legalities, contracts, and processes is similar in the sense that it needs to be taken seriously. Looking for a house online and wanting to put an immediate offer on one can be exciting and fun, but the issues that require a professional's guidance comes after the initial contract is written up and the hard work comes into place to actually make the home your own. Same for sellers, if you decide to put your home on the market and want a website that will give you an automatic offer, how do you know you're not being taken advantage of in the price? But most importantly, how do you know you're not being taken advantage of in other aspects of the contract? Because there is a lot more to the sale of the home then just agreeing on a number. 
The next time you're digging through public sites for homes for sale, and getting instant home valuation estimates, keep in mind that this is a simple process to give you an idea of your market. A very general idea. But after you've found the perfect house, or after you've decided that the numbers make some sense for you to sell, call your favorite real estate agent and make sure they give you a more detailed look into the market and assist you through the full process, not just the exciting first parts. Because it's going to be in the middle of a contract when the lending is falling apart, or negotiations can't be made on repairs and emotions are at an all time high, that you are going to wish you had put down your laptop and had an agent fighting for you by your side. Use the internet, have fun with it's amazing resources, but don't let it replace your agent. We aren't in an age, just yet, where technology can do everything a professional can.

“Isabel went above and beyond what would be expected of a realtor. I was selling our family home for a uncle who was entering a nursing home. 100 years of accumulated stuff she helped me to manage. Even posting the free items on Craig's List for me. She also had a veteran's knowledge of pricing and strategy for us to get the best deal possible and identify the best potential offers and buyers. She made a very difficult task for me and my family a lot easier.” James Aiken

I am more than happy to recommend Isabel Orlandino, she has helped me buy three houses (two Single family homes, and one condo), and sell two of them. She is very knowledgeable, organized and trustworthy. I can't say enough about Isabelle's professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge/connections. She brings all these qualities to the table for her clients. Wish I could give her 10 stars! Thanks for all your help, Isabelle

Isabel helped me find a multi family for my parents 5 years ago. She was very accommodating with scheduling appointments around my hectic work schedule and was extremely helpful with finding and screening potential rental clients for the unit my parents were renting out. I will be in the market again shortly looking for myself and will once again connect with Isabel for guidance. She is my go to agent for any future purchases or sales.

I worked with Isabel on and off for the last few years. I finally purchased my home back on Aug 2016. Great experience!!! She is very professional, thoughtful and knowledgeable. She's very reliable and dependable. I've worked with other agents in the past, nothing comes close to the care I received from Isabel. I recommend her to anyone who's house hunting.

Isabel helped my husband and I find the perfect house to start our family. My husband and I were looking for a house a few months before our wedding. Isabel made it so easy and stress free. We were looking to stay in Medford and there was not too much inventory so we needed to be able to move quickly. Isabel found us a perfect size house in a great neighborhood. She was upfront and said she knew our budget and that this house was a fixer upper but for the price and neighborhood thought it was perfect for us and she was right. There was a lot of interest in the house but I think Isabel's knowledge, responsiveness, and the relationship she built with the listing agent really helped us get the house. We got the house under our budget, did the renovations, and now our house is worth double what we paid for it. We are incredibly happy with the service we received from Isabel and are in the perfect house for us!

In my function as a closing agent and Real Estate Attorney, I have worked with Isabel in the closing of numerous real estate transactions. She has the experience and knowledge to successfully list and market properties, and is accessible and responsive to her clients and colleagues. Isabel understands that closing a real estate transaction is a team effort. I highly recommend Isabel because of her dedication to both buyers and sellers. I have the utmost confidence that she will continue to do so in the future.

Isabel helped my husband and I purchase our home in 2012. She was able to show us a variety of homes that met our specifications. Isabel was knowledgeable when it came to any questions we had and responded in a timely fashion. We love our home and were very happy with the support and dedication we received from Isabel while purchasing our first home.
