The Best Real Estate Agents in Pinellas County FL Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 


The state of Florida requires real estate agents in Pinellas County FL to be licensed by Florida Real Estate Commission which requires taking a course, passing an exam and a personal background check.

But the state license for real estate agencies is no guarantee that any particular real estate agent in Pinellas County FL is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying clients.

This makes it all the more significant that all real estate agents in Pinellas County FL who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous clients to verify high satisfaction, verified state real estate license, good complaint record, verified liability insurance, best business practices, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.




Real Estate Agents in Pinellas County FL Save You Money


To buy real estate or for real estate sales in Pinellas County FL you stand to make or save more money and avoid mistakes by relying on the guidance of professional real estate agents or real estate brokers.

Remember, it's a mistake to decide on a real estate agent based on who drops their fee or commission since obviously it's foolish to chase a discount on a commission when a good real estate agent saves you tens of thousands of dollars by selling your real estate at a higher price, or gets a seller to drop their asking price when you're buying.

Most real estate agencies in Pinellas County FL have a collection of Realtors or real estate agents who sell residential real estate, but there are a handful who make commercial, industrial, vineyard, ranch, undeveloped acreage, or agricultural property sales. The real estate brokers themselves (or principal/qualifying brokers), who have more extensive schooling than real estate agents, are licensed to act as the direct contact between you and your financial lender.

The best real estate brokers in Pinellas County FL will find real estate that matches your specifications, arrange showings, inspection reports, negotiate pricing in your favor, and assist you in making an offer on real estate for sale in Pinellas County FL. Independently, real estate brokers may also purchase real estate for future rentals or sales, in which case they might position themselves as the property manager.

Real estate brokers usually offer open or multiple listing services with their real estate agency or the real estate brokerage they represent. They can also deal directly with lenders to negotiate closing costs and financing options for your real estate purchase. They are required to process all necessary property disclosures for a transfer of property, including visual inspection, real estate agency relationship, negotiability of real estate commissions, and sales price information.

And since real estate brokers are required to have more experience than real estate agents, some hold special licensing that qualifies them to appraise the property you're selling as well as listings available. They can also perform comparative market analyses to determine where the value of your home lies in relation to comparable homes in a specific area of Pinellas County FL. They can conduct all advertising and exposure of your real estate listing, as well as guide you through the real estate sale or purchase. Some real estate brokers (as well as real estate agents) are registered Realtors in Pinellas County FL, which implies the distinction of affiliation with NAR (National Association of Realtors).
