"Leaving Las Vegas"

I recently received the following question from a friend of mine and thought I would pass along the answer to all my friends. Also, if you have questions like this - send them to me!

Q: Joe - my daughter is “Leaving Las Vegas” and moving out of state and I was wondering if you could give me advice or help me find an agent I can trust to look out for her best interest. Do you know any agents in Chicago?

A: You came to the right place! And yes, I do know quite a few agents in Chicago. Over the past 14 years I have traveled all over the country speaking and coaching other real estate agents on how to be successful in building their business, providing great service while having a life while in Real Estate! Through this, I have formed friendships with realtors nationwide. (My database includes over 8,000 Realtors.) Please have her contact me so I can get a feel for her needs and personality. This way, I can match her up with an agent that will work best with her and one you can feel comfortable knowing she's with a true professional.
