    Carla is very good at her job and made the biggest purchase of my life easier. I spent 3 years in car sales and was skeptical at first that a buyers agent would be most concerned about making money on a deal, but she was the exact opposite. She made sure that my families needs for a house were considered and I trusted her as an adviser during this process. It was great having her in our corner. I am glad that we didn't go through a real estate agent, and would recommend her to any of my family or friends that were looking to buy a house.

    John was an outstanding property manager and realtor. While renting, he was our property manager and made everything so easy. He was extremely responsive to any needs we had. I never had to call or bug him - just a quick email and he would get back to me asap. When we went to buy our first home, John did a great job coaching us with the process. He listened to what we were looking for, provided us frequently with listings and was always quick to get us showings. The process couldn't have been smoother as first time homebuyers. Plus he's personable, caring and just an overall great guy. When we look to sell and buy our next house, John will be the first person we call.

Five stars as seen on Zillow: "We sold our house one week after putting it on the market during the housing crash - 2009. Jason's attention to details and respect for the homeowner is impressive. I have used Jason to purchase and then sell another home in 2010 to relocate to another state. My only regret about Jason was that he wasn't with me to buy my current home in Washington." Five stars as seen on Zillow: "Jason moved faster than any broker I have ever worked with. He had our home up on the market with full marketing collateral within three days. He then had our house sold within five days. All this in a down market! He's good at staging advice. His web work was top notch. He then helped us locate an excellent agent in the city where we were moving to. Overall, I was very happy. He is easy to work with, tells you the truth and does what he says he will do. What more could you ask?" Five stars as seen on Zillow: "Jason and Amber make a great team. They each know their strengths and complement each other perfectly! Jason is very knowledgeable about real estate, and it's obvious that he is invested in his industry. This is a career for him, not a job, and he's a professional! He's easy to work with, talk with, and does a great job explaining every aspect of the process. Amber is an expert at marketing! To say that she is creative is an understatement. She is always brainstorming and thinking outside the box. She is original and unique in the ways she finds to market a home. I would not hesitate to recommend The Gardner Team!" Five stars as seen on Zillow: "After listing our home under another agent for five months, we chose to change directions and relist under The Gardner Team. We were ultimately drawn to them due to their reputation around our community for excellent service and quick home sales. They got our house on the market immediately and helped us get it "market ready" within a couple of days. Within a few weeks, we had begun negotiations with a buyer and were out of our home shortly after. We continued working with the Gardner Team to purchase our next home as well, which was an equally wonderful experience. They helped us negotiate a deal we were very pleased with and got us in to a beautiful home. I have recommended them to many friends already!" Five stars as seen on Zillow: "They sold our condo quickly and at an excellent price, especially for this economy. The Gardner team is very, very supportive of their neighborhoods and the community at large. They are a joy and an informative resource. High integrity and family values!"

He stays on top of his transactions and does whatever is within his power to make sure they close on time and his clients are taken cared of. I would have no problem recommending Jason as a real estate professional to either a seller or a buyer." As seen on LinkedIn: “After a thorough selection process, we hired Jason and Amber at the end of 2005 just as the real estate boom was slowing. They showed expert knowledge and customer-focused service as they outlined a custom marketing plan and as they worked with my wife to properly stage the house. Jason and Amber set expectations and delivered results consistently and timely. From overview to details, they made it happen. This was the easiest home sale. Jason and Amber are the only team that I have ever recommended. If you need professionals and results, you need Jason and Amber.” As seen on LinkedIn: “Jason and Amber (The Gardner Team) are true professionals!

    My strong work ethic and love for what I do translates into a enjoyable experience for the buyers and sellers that I work with. Through open communication, timely responses and vast knowledge of the market my clients feel less stress and more in control. It really is a team effort, and I try to make it as fun and as stress-free as possible. With buyers, I like exploring the different neighborhoods and homes that may interest them. It's fun to see their face light up when they've found the one, and then going to the end of the earth to help them make it happen. With Sellers, I like educating them on the market and creating a game plan to get them the most money for their home. Each home is different, each situation is different and when one or more offers come in, I get excited to share it with them knowing this will put them one step closer to their next move.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What does a real estate agent do?

    Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

    • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
    • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
    • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
    • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
    • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
    • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
    • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
    • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
    • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
    • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

    What should you look for in a real estate agent?

    When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

    Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

    What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

    Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

    If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

    What do real estate agents charge?

    Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

    • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
    • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
    • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
    • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
