A professional real estate agent works to minimize the stress involved in the process and to make your closing as smooth as possible. The agent will monitor the progress of the loan application and check on the paperwork. He or she will remind the sellers about any repairs that need to be made before the closing and will assist both parties in coordinating the closing and their moves. The real estate agent will also help ensure a smooth transition by reminding the sellers to arrange for final utility readings and the buyers to set up new utility account.
