There’s often a perceived disconnect between Realtors and builders. With custom homes, both the builder and the realtor work with the home buyer, but usually have different agendas they bring to the table.
That’s not how we work with Realtors, though. We value Realtors. They do a great job of keeping up-to-date with trends in homes and buying habits, and that’s expertise that we definitely appreciate. We respect the time, training, and knowledge it takes to be a quality Realtor.
Because of that respect, building and maintaining connections with Realtors is a high priority for us. Those relationships tend to become mutually beneficial referral sources, as well.
We know that custom homes can take a long time to complete, especially if there is an issue with the land or title. When Elements work with Realtors, we make sure they get paid their commission when the slab is poured and not at the final closing of the house. It’s just one of the ways we show our appreciation for the good work they do.
