Top Las Vegas Real Estate Agents

One of the hardest things about moving to a new city is not knowing whom to call when you need help. You used to have a trusted hair stylist, car mechanic and dentist, but they are all back in your old neighborhood. Now that you’re the new kid on the block, you’re stuck having to develop new connections and it can be tough knowing who to trust. The right real estate agent can not only help you find a great place to live, but they also have great recommendations on other local service providers to help you get settled in your new home.

The following four real estate agents may not the most famous in Las Vegas (that title would probably go to some of the reality television stars of shows like Flipping Vegas or House Hunters), but all of them have come highly recommended by locals in the Las Vegas community. Read on to learn what makes these Vegas home experts special.

What sets you apart from the competition?
Las Vegas has over 12,000 agents with over 80 percent of them being “part time.” We have been full-time agents for 10 years and have spent years learning how to care for our clients on a “one on one” basis––never passing them off to an assistant. We pride ourselves in focusing on their specific needs. Whether we are negotiating a $100,000 or a million dollar transaction, we treat everyone with the same attention to detail.

What do you think people should know about relocating to Las Vegas?
I think people relocating from other cities are always surprised to learn that even though we are a 24-hour town, we still have regular neighborhoods with churches, schools, shopping, etc.––just like anywhere else. The weather definitely is a plus, however. With the sun shining over 300 days a year, who wouldn’t want to live here?

What sets you apart from the competition?
I believe that real estate should be about great customer service and building relationships––it’s about so much more than just selling a home!

One of the most common compliments I get from my clients is simply that I listened when other agents did not. I am very patient and take the time from the start to educate people about the current real estate market. I very much encourage questions––the more educated people are, the better the choice they’ll make.

What do you think people should know about relocating to Las Vegas?
Las Vegas is still one of the best places to buy a home and with so many programs available to help you buy, such as down payment assistance, there is no reason not to do it!

There’s also so much to do here: from snowboarding in the winter, to hiking and camping in the spring, to riding jet skis and wakeboarding in the summer. It really is a great place to live.

What sets you apart from the competition?
I was born and raised in Las Vegas, and my family has been here since before The Strip existed. There is no one that knows this city better.

There are over 14,000 real estate agents in Las Vegas, and the average agent sells just four homes per year. I sell 10x that amount. I am currently the Sales and Listing Specialist with the Corporate Services Division of Coldwell Banker Premier Realty. What that means is, I have a high level of accreditation with both relocation companies and major corporations. I am experienced with all types of transactions.

What do you think people should know about relocating to Las Vegas?
The first rule of home buying is to speak with a lender. You must do so to know how much you can afford and what you need to begin preparing financially in order to complete a purchase. Las Vegas is unique in the lending world, as there are some down payment assistance programs (with a value of up to 4% of the purchase price) that can be utilized for some home buyers. A good real estate agent and lender can guide you towards the best options for your scenario.

What sets you apart from the competition?
Very few real estate agents actually have a solid understanding of the real estate market and its trends. While other agents rely only on an automatic MLS search to blindly send common properties to their clients, I provide my clients with hundreds of properties that are rarely even seen by other agents and customers.

I also have a degree in International Business, which gives me the background I need to be heavily involved with foreign investors.

What do you think people should know about relocating to Las Vegas?
Las Vegas is unique in that it is still a fairly small town and yet it has a lot to offer. You can enjoy world-class entertainment, the best restaurants in the world, and an outdoor lifestyle that only Las Vegas can provide, all while living comfortably in a carefully in a master-planned community, high-rise condominium, or spacious ranch home.
