Finding that right agent is so important!  The good news is with the MLS system encompassing such a borad based geographic region, the neighborhood specialist is no longer the best agent for you!   In today’s technological world, a good agent can acclimate themselves to any region within about fifteen minutes with access to MLS data.  Don’t fall for that, “I need an agent in my neighborhood line”, when all NWMLS Member Real estate companies are truly global.
