Finding a REALTOR who understands all of your needs, wants, and dreams can be difficult. So difficult, in fact, that sometimes it seems impossible that just one person could fit all of your qualifications. This is where working with a REALTOR team, like the Rouso Group outshines using an individual agent when buying or selling your home.
In a REALTOR team, you (the buyer or seller) have a primary agent. The other members of the team can assist you whenever and whatever way possible—in short, someone will always be available to talk to you, answer questions, show you a home, or introduce you to the neighborhood. The team approach allows for greater specialization for each agent, and the benefits of this knowledge and specialization are passed on to you. With a real estate team, you’ll work with experts on all the different parts of real estate, and they use their expertise to find you the perfect home. Different members of the team will specialize in different areas of the home-buying process, and their deep knowledge will help you to buy or sell a home quickly and without complications. This specialization is a great service to clients that can’t be replicated by an individual agent. As we like to say in Chicago, the Blackhawks wouldn’t have won 3 Stanley Cups in 6 years if every player was a right wing.
Mark Greene, contributor to Forbes, sums it up by saying that a team can bring a competitive advantage to a buy or sell transaction by simply having more resources to tap, more people, more ideas, and more perspectives.
In Chicagoland, there are over 33,000 individual real estate agents but very few real estate teams. The Rouso Group stands out not only because of the team approach, but also because it takes all of the advantages of using a REALTOR team and expands these services to provide you with unparalleled resources and proven results.

"Lisa was extremely helpful and knowledgeable when assisting us with our home purchase. She's an experienced negotiator with excellent communication and follow up skills. She was also very good at explaining the different neighborhoods and school systems to us as well as amenities within various communities.
