Why You Want Outside Representation from Jeff Schmidt
There are many benefits to working with Cabo-based real estate agent Jeff Schmidt. Since he’s not directly affiliated with these high-end developments, he can look outside the box and offer honest insights.
Realtors who work for these developments are working on behalf of the developer; as a result, they may be more inclined to close deals at prices set by the developer instead of market prices. As an outside agent, Jeff provides a different perspective and will give you real numbers and unskewed facts. He can compare similar properties at multiple developments, which is something that development agents typically don’t do. Weighing the costs, advantages, and your needs as a property owner, Jeff will help you make the choice that’s right for you.
Since these communities are so exclusive, their properties are rarely listed on the MLS. Jeff has given clients tours through these high-end developments. He can answer your questions and concerns, and can also get you access to these exclusive properties so you can experience them for yourself.
