Looking for a GOOD Real Estate Agent

My husband, daughter, and I moved to the area from Austin last September. We had a very short amount of time to look for a home, so we decided to move into a rent house. Our lease is up in August, and we are ready to start looking for a home.
Since we are unfamiliar with all of the areas surrounding Dallas, we need a good real estate agent that will work hard to help us locate a house that is perfect for us.
We are especially interested in a pre-foreclosure or foreclosure sale.
If you know any good real estate agents/brokers in the area that fit that description PLEASE let me know!!!
Thanks!

What can I do next?

You will not be sorry if you call Russ Ambers ###-###-####). He has been doing this for a LONG time, and truly takes his time with each client. If you are looking for the kind of service that seems to have become a thing of the past - call Russ.

We have used Eloise Martin (Coldwell Banker) and she is great! She is one of the top real-estate agents in the area. She is also a family friend and has helped my parents buy & sell, and my friends buy their first home. She was listed in "D Magazine" as one of the best in Dallas. She's one of those realtors who is more focused on finding you the perfect home (and watching out for you to make sure you don't get a bad home with hidden problems) than those realtors who are just out to make a sale. She's also very active and generous in various nonprofit organizations

Our realtor is Mike Askins ###-###-#### and has been listed in D Magazine as one of the best realtors in the DFW area. He has an awesome program. If you purchase one of his listed homes you actually get MONEY BACK TO YOU to go toward closing costs or what ever. It would definitely be worth giving him a call to find out if he has something listed in your price range and in the area you are looking at.
Here is his website

Good luck to you!

We used Nancy Russell of The Russell Group for 2 moves....she's the hardest working lady you'll ever meet. Not pushy at all!! She has her own group of people that work for her....she's associated with Ebby which is outstanding. Also, she's always ranked one of the top realtors in Dallas every year. http://www.ebby.com/agent/nancyrussell

I think everyone knows a real estate agent these days and I see you've gotten several referrals but I'll give you one more. My dad is an independent broker, primarily representing buyers, and is very knowledgeable of the area. He's baased in McKinney but has sold houses all over Dallas. I know I'm probably slightly biased, but he is the most honest person who will look out for you and make sure you're getting a good house. Former clients of his still call him to ask his advice on everything from the best refrigerator to purchase to real estate questions. If you're interested, his name is David Bush and his number is ###-###-####.

HI A., I actually AM a Realtor! My office is in Flower Mound, I live in Little Elm, and I worked for a builder for three years selling new homes in Frisco/Plano, Little Elm, and also way out in Forney. I am very familiar with many areas. If you'd like to email me or call I can help you casually start looking now, so you do have a better idea of exactly where you want to be before your lease is up! Happy to Help!

I would recommend Carolyn Jenkins, an Ebby agent. She helped us find the home that was right for us, and help us sell our previous home rather quickly. She is friendly, easy to work with, and really has her clients best interest at heart. My hubby and I were VERY picky on what we wanted, as we were upgrading and looking for very particular things in our next home. She was SO patient with us. Her husband Ron also works with her, handling all the paperwork, etc. They were both so pleasant to deal with, and made the process of buying/selling go so smooth! Also they gave us a 1% rebate back at closing, all you have to do is ask if you decide to use them. They were recommended to us from some close friends who bought their first home using Carolyn and Ron. Here is a link to their website. Good luck and wish you the best. If you decide to use them, tell them S. L. referred you.
