Here in the U.S. Real estate sales are conducted very differently than they are in Europe. You do not normally contact the listing agent to inquire about the property they have listed. Instead, you work with ONE realtor who shows you all of the property that you have an interest in. And that one realtor represents you as you look at each and every property until you make a decision which property to purchase. Then that same realtor will put in your offer for you and ultimately help you to negotiate the purchase of whichever property you choose. We can represent you on any and all property you have an interest in within the state of Florida.
I look forward to working with you!
