The secret is out. Southwest Florida is the jewel of Florida and golf here is terrific! There are no "mulligans" when buying in a golf course community. That's why you need to work with a true professional, someone who knows the differences between the communities and which one will best meet your needs. When winter temperatures up north dip into single digits, more and more golfers migrate to the warmth of the Gulf Coast. It can be intimidating knowing how and where to look for that ideal golf community. There are more than 85 exclusive golf course communities in Collier and Lee Counties alone. Steve is a buyer's agent. He represents the purchaser's best interests through all phases of the real estate transaction. Working with a buyer's agent does not cost the buyers any additional money and it does not affect the price of the home. Like most traditional real estate agents, the services of a buyer's agent are included in the commission paid by the seller or developer. That means that buyers who use a buyer's agent can rest assured they are fully represented throughout the entire real estate transaction. Money Magazine states: "Choosing a real estate agent to represent you should be one of the first, and perhaps the most important, step buyers should take before shopping for a home." Steve has earned the Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) designation, which is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. The Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC) of the National Association of Realtors awards this coveted designation to real estate agents who have met the specified educational and practical experience criteria. Only about 2% of all real estate professionals in North America earn the buyer's agent designation.
