How Do You Choose A Real Estate Agent?
Buying or selling a house can be very stressful, especially if you have never done it before. Getting the right Real Estate Agent is one of the most important parts of the process.
The Advantages of a Good Real Estate Agent
- They can reduce some of your stress
- They will assist you with paperwork
- They can help you find the right mortgage/bank
- They will deal with all the legal issues
- They will reduce the amount of time you need to search for properties
- They will line up viewings
- They will offer support and guidance until the day you buy or sell
- They listen to all your needs
- They can prevent time wasting
A good real estate agent should understand the local market. They can tell you how long certain properties have been on the market, what prices compare with your own property, this will then help you decide what is within your budget and what your home might sell for. They should know if the property market is decreasing or increasing, offering you guidance on when is the best time to buy or sell. All of our ERA Cayman Islands Real Estate Agents have this knowledge.
The ERA Cayman Islands Agents
All the agents at ERA Cayman Islands have a strong local knowledge of the Cayman Islands property market. The Brokers/Owners of ERA Cayman Islands, Robert and Jeanette Totten, have been representing buyers and sellers in Cayman Real Estate for over 26 years.
Husband and Wife team Robert and Jeanette Totten are originally from the US but have been living and working in Cayman for over 30 years. During that time, they have bought and sold their own properties across the Island and have a high level of knowledge about areas and the best locations in terms of investment and budgets. Many of Robert and Jeanette’s clients have come back to them time and time again, putting their trust in them for all their real estate needs.
Jeanette has been President of CIREBA (Cayman Islands Real Estate Brokers Association) for many years and in fact was the first ever female President of the MLS Association. Not only do her clients trust in her but so do her fellow real estate colleagues.
Robert has a background in engineering and construction, which perfectly complements Jeanette as he is able to provide solid, practical advice on buying or selling homes. This means ERA Cayman Islands can offer a very comprehensive understanding of construction and development on the Island not just buying or selling existing homes.
John Pohlmann (otherwise known as Johnny) has been with ERA Cayman Islands for over 8 years and has been involved in high end real estate, property management and customer service for even longer. Formerly from Colorado he is now proud to call Cayman his home. John holds a degree in Business Law, so who better to help you wind your way through the maze of paperwork when buying or selling homes.
Paul Thompson has over 20 years in banking, insurance and mortgage consultation. Now he is the one to steer you through all the processes of buying or selling a home. Paul holds a degree in accounting so you know he will help you with all your financial questions.
Kristina King grew up in the Cayman Islands. She has a long-standing background in the restaurant industry and customer service. She loves to help people and ensures everything related to your property needs is met – she will go above and beyond.
Paul Watler was born and raised in the Cayman Islands. In fact, the Watler family can be traced back for generations. Paul started out in environmental science earning himself a master’s degree. He worked for the Cayman Islands National Trust for 10 years, protecting and exploring the local flora and fauna. This means that Paul doesn’t just have local knowledge when it comes to the property market, but he can also tell you what native trees are in your yard or if the soil is good for growing or flooding is a problem in your area. Now that really is knowledge worth having on your side.
