Real estate is often compared to a roller coaster ride. This is as a result of the frequent and sudden emotional ups and downs that buyers, sellers, and sometimes even lenders, agents and support staff experience. The real estate industry is notorious for being a high stress environment.
A great and responsive agent can work to settle these ups and downs by solving problems and explaining situations, which can help complicated deals from falling apart. This is one reason why a good agent is the best tool that a buyer or seller can have. At the end of the day, an agent can be the difference between a deal coming together or falling apart.
