Shaking hands at closing doesn’t have to be your last interaction with your Texas REALTOR®. In fact, you may want to keep in touch for a while.  Here are a few instances when you'll glad you kept his or her number on hand.

  • To tap into a valuable contacts list. When you need help with repairs or maintenance, your Texas REALTOR® can recommend service providers she or her clients have worked with.

  • To learn about your community. Your Texas REALTOR® will know the location of nearby businesses and information about local agencies, like the school district and city or county offices.

  • To solicit general homeownership knowledge. This could even include the process for filing for a homestead exemption or protesting your property tax appraisal.

  • To learn about your new home. If your Texas REALTOR® can’t answer your question about the property—like which day the trash is picked up or which utility companies the sellers used—he or she will know who to call or where to look to find the answer.  

A Texas REALTOR® has access to a wealth of knowledge, resources, and experience that can benefit you in your transition from homebuyer to homeowner. If you haven't added one to your team, find a Texas REALTOR® now.
