I have been posed this question as of late.
Which is better to use.
Here is my take...
As a small independent Broker, I can and do give great personal service.
I know my listings intimately.
My clients are not just a number.
When I see a new client, it will not be the only time we meet, I am the only person they will see.
I am a FULL MLS Realtor and I can see every detail and listing that the big boys and girls do.
So I pose the question back to the person asking...
Do you want to be a number, or do want someone who remembers your name?
The choice is yours!!!!
