Not all real estate professionals are created equally and it can be quite overwhelming to get involved in real estate for the first time. You need a seasoned veteran to help guide the way. Using a Real Estate Investment Advisor, instead of a traditional realtor, enhances your experience and allows you to get more out of your investing. Here are some differences between a REIA and a traditional realtor:

  • Realtors tend to be transaction based, helping you to buy or sell specific properties. At Hutton Radway we want to build a long term relationship with you. We will help you set goals and help you reach them.
  • Realtors tend to specialize in specific locations. At Hutton Radway, through the use of a proprietary search tool, we have access to investment properties all over North America.
  • Realtors tend to specialize in certain real estate types (i.e. single family homes or condos). In fact, according to a National Association of Realtors survey, 8 out of 10 specialize in residential sales. Darcy has experience in almost all genres of real estate investing and can help you no matter what type of property you want to get into.
  • The majority of Realtors don’t actually invest in real estate themselves. That same NAR survey shows only 36% own a residential investment property and only 10% own a commercial property. Having personally owned 92 properties over the past 17 years and having done everything from flips to rentals to condo conversions to land development to new construction, Darcy certainly has the hands on experience you require.
