22 People Involved in Every Real Estate Sale

Did you know, that on average, there are 22 different service providers involved in a real estate transaction?

A Realtor is the one lifeline people have in a transaction and trust in that Realtor is critical.  There are major differences between the agent known for cracking the whip versus the one who masterfully conducts the symphony.

Great Realtors collaborate, make everyone else feel great about their role in the transaction, and most importantly manage expectations.  Who you work with matters.

I’ve seen so many agents press buyers, sellers, and service providers on trivial items or non-consequential due dates, and many times losing site of the end goal, which is to close the sale.  The best of the best know when to push, how to pull, and when to give the other side the time they need.  Below is a list of the 22 roles usually associated with our transactions.
