Traditional Solo Realtors vs. a Team of Realtors, with Emilio DiSpirito

In this segment, Emilio discusses the differences between traditional Realtors and Realtor teams.

Weekly, customers come to us at the DiSpirito Team and ask us, what is the difference between a real estate team and an individual agent? Is there an unbiased place to get information to their real estate questions about whom to hire on the web?

Recently, one of our clients reached out and and shared that he does not believe there is such a place to find equitable content for homeowners on which is the best way to sell his home.

“I’ve searched the internet for hours upon hours not finding anything relevant to my questions. You will find nuggets of information scattered here and there, but there has not been one reliable resource online that has answered any of my questions such as, when selling my home, which type of agent and service will truly earn me the most? Will selling my home for sale by owner vs using a Realtor or a Team of Realtors net me more? How about a discount brokerage vs. a traditional Realtor or Team? Not anywhere is there such information and it’s frustrating to say the least.. can you point me in any direction?”

This video, is our effort to assist homeowners in getting a straight forward, “non-salesy” approach to questions that our clients and many other consumers have.
