It’s time to get a haircut, do you seek an expert? If your car won’t start, is that when an expert mechanic comes in handy? How about chest pain, would you prefer the advice/help of an expert doctor? None of these are as expensive as buying/selling a house, so I feel confident in assuming you should be working with an expert agent then as well right?
