Here is what our professionals and partners have to say...

“I love the bonus entitlement section. Most realtors won’t know this and depending on the types of clients they work with, they may never be asked. However, I also don't want to be like most realtors, I don't want to tell a client, to go ask your lender. If my client came to me after receiving the wrong answer, I also want to know that it’s wrong so the client doesn’t make a bad decision. When a potential client asks you, "Can I buy a second home in Texas" I love knowing that I can answer that beyond the other 10+ default answers like, go ask your lender, DM me and I can do it for you, etc. Being able to explain it, give an example or even solve their question over a forum is a huge win for them and you. Add in the ability to discuss one-time restoration, how it works, and the pros and cons of both is a huge advantage.”

Jason Rivera, Keller Williams Realtor DRA 02055758

Melissa Schilling Ashcraft, Realtor at Texas Luxe Real Estate
