Why would I need professional services?  

While buying and selling a home on your own is the best way to avoid costly commissions, some jobs require or are made easier by the help of a professional, or Pro, as we refer to them. These services include a lawyer during the contract negotiations and at closing, a homestager in case you want some help making your home looks it’s best, or a moving company to help you on the big day!

Visit the Find a Pro section to see the full list of Pro types listed in the directory.
