Mackenzie Martin could wrestle a mountain lion with her bare hands!!! Ok maybe not but she is an incredible real estate agent. I recently learned that buying a first home is exciting but also terrifying. There are a series of professionals on whom you have to rely. Each step requires incredible amounts of research and good advice. Every real estate agent has the incentive to help a client complete their transaction. This does not necessarily take into account what’s best for the client. It is very important that your realtor is willing to advise you against a transaction despite the commission incentive. For this reason I think the most important characteristic in a realtor is trust. I trust Mackenzie completely. She listened to us and was willing to base the terms on our best interests. She did not ever pressure us, in fact she did just the opposite. She was willing to lose the deal and her commission in order to fight for our good. She is the best.
