Whether or not you've ever seen an episode ofModern Family,or know whoPhil Dunphy'scharacter is, the concept of knowing that you have someone in your corner who is looking out for your best interests is something we all want.
When it comes to buying a home, whether you are a rookie homebuyer or have gone through the process many times, having a local real estate expert who is well versed in the neighborhood you are looking to move into, and the trends of the area, should be your goal.
For those who aren't familiar, the characterPhil Dunphy is a Realtor with a huge heart who always strives to do the best for his family and his clients.
In one recent episode, Phil even shared the oath that he created and holds himself to:
"On my honor, I promise to aid in man's quest for shelter, to recognize I'm not just in the business of houses -- I'm in the business of dreams in the shape of houses. To disclose all illegal additions, shoddy construction, murders, and ghosts. And to put my clients' needs before my own."
While this might seem silly, and it was definitely written with humor in mind, the themes of helping someone achieve the American Dream and putting a clients' needs above your own are not to be taken lightly.
When you make the decision to enter the housing market, as either a buyer or a seller, make sure you look for an agent who exemplifies these values and will help you through every step of the process.

"We enjoyed working with Melody from the moment we met! As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions, and were a little “green” on the whole process. Melody spent a big chunk of her Saturday morning with us going over the market, the home buying process, and answering all of our questions; no matter how silly. We related to her very well, and felt like she just “got us”. She was great about sending listings, responding to any and all emails, and coordinating showings of homes with us. She had a great understanding of what we were looking for, and even helped us realize things we didn’t even know we may need or want in a home. We found the perfect home for us rather quickly, and Melody was very quick when negotiating our offer, and following up with the selling parties. She referred us to a great lender, a wonderful settlement company, and our entire process went smoothly thanks to her professionalism and follow through. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better and will be referring everyone we know to Melody, as well as calling her in the future when its time to do this fun process all over again!”"
