There’s so much that goes into buying a house: finding a great real estate agent, combing through listings, competing with other offers, and the psychological freakout that often accompanies actually putting down the cash for a home. But buying a house is one of the best investments you can make, and a really talented, attentive real estate agent can make the process a LOT easier for you.
