Frequently Asked Questions

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Elgin?

On average, the top performing 5% of seller's agents generally command a higher selling price (+9%) than the average real estate agent.

So, whether you're buying or selling your house, your odds of making more money on the transaction are higher if you work with a top performing agent.
