Hiring an Agent to Help You Sell or Buy a Home in Silicon Valley

I’m a Realtor in Silicon Valley with many years’ experience under my belt. On top of that, I grew up with a Realtor mom and recall “the stories” from way back when. What stories?

I’m talking about the Bad Agent Stories.

As Realtors, part of our Code of Ethics (which is totally sacrosant) is to not “disparage the competition”. So I’m not going to name names.

But I have to warn you: please, please be careful when you hire, or you may get one of the Realtor lemons.  Unfortunately, at times I’ve run into a few agents who’ve worked deceptively. So my response is to warn you so at least my readers aren’t duped.
