A few weeks ago I randomly contacted a realtor with cbshome and we have been emailing ever since...When we
met with her yesterday, I really, really liked her ...she made time on her Sunday to show us some houses, so that was pretty good in my book.... BUT when I emailed my realtor in Wahoo about selling our house last week, she told me that she works in
the Omaha office 2 days a week (which I didn't know), and that she can help us find
a home in Omaha too. I imagine it would be nice to just work with one realtor
for buying and selling so it's all taken care of by one person, BUT I really like the cbs realtor we met with and I feel like she's very knowledgeable about the area we are looking to buy in....SO now I don't know what to do. Obviously I'm not going to have them both help us purchase a home, so I feel like I need to choose one now. Is it pretty common/more convenient to work with the same realtor you are selling with, to help you purchase a home? Or does it not really matter? Will it matter more that the one realtor doesn't do very much business in Omaha compared to the other? I'm worried that since she is only in town 2 days a week that if we needed to see a house ASAP that she might not be able to make it happen, know what I mean? We haven't been in the buying and selling at the same time situation before, as when we bought our house we moved here from FL, so I don't know much about the whole buying/selling process and how it fits together...but from what I gather so far, it is probably going to be a nightmare!
