New Home Specialist | Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch FL | David Barr Realtor
I get these types of calls now and then. Another Realtor contacted me for information about some condos in one of the new home communities I serve. This Realtor said "I found you online" and "Aren't you the builder"?
It's a pretty sad situation when someone with a real estate license doesn't know who the builder is for a new home community. I think it's even worse that these people can't get off the couch and go to visit these new home communities on their own, for knowledge sake.

If you're looking for a new home, you should demand more than someone who just drives you to the sales center and lets the new home sales associate take over for them. The new home sales associates know their product very well, but usually can't tell you about competing properties or local attractions and amenities.
It may seem like a strange question, but I think you should ask any Realtor you may be working with if they have been to the community you're interested in, and if so, when was their last visit.
Or, you could select a Realtor who frequently visits the 50 major new home communities in Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, and The West Villages and provides you with video updates and model home photo galleries (me!).
