Keller Williams Legacy Group Realty
About Amy

All Realtors are not created the same! If we were, we would all get the same results. Whether you are thinking of buying or selling there are actually huge differences between Realtors in respect to service, communication, and results! We take the responsibility of selling your home and finding you a home very seriously. Homes are most peoples largest asset and you owe it to yourself to make sure you have the right person to represent you through the transaction. As a Licensed Marketing Specialist (LMS) We are pros at multi-media advertising that generates widespread exposure, sales promotion, converting inquiry calls to appointments and then to offers, negotiation skills and, bottom line, creating energy & excitement around your home! We reinvest a bulk of your dollars in the most comprehensive marketing programs possible and service that is second to none. It's time to make the move and take advantage of the historically low interest rates. There has never been a better time to buy or sell then now! Lets put that "SOLD" sign in the yard!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Akron?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Akron?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Akron to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Akron is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
