Jim Spowart, Realtor. Why I'm the only North Texas Real Estate Agent you'll ever need:
In addition to being a Graduate of Realtor Institute (GRI), I am one of approximately 16,000 Realtors nationwide who have earned the Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation, created by the National Association of Realtors to address the requirements of the full spectrum of buyers; from first-time buyers through the mature buyer or seller who is ready to downsize. I am also a Texas Veterans Land Board Preferred Realtor, so if you are a veteran looking for a home in North Texas, ask me about the special opportunities available to Texas Veterans (See the Special Financing Programs section of this website for more information).
I am a Buyer's Agent, and have demonstrated the educational and experiential requirements to be awarded the Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) designation, which is nationally recognized as specifically tailored to meeting the needs of buyers. I represent only one client at a time, so you can be assured I will be one hundred percent dedicated to serving only your best interests.
I specialize in new home sales, working with some of America's premier new home builders; specifically those building energy efficient homes in the area's best neighborhoods. I know the quality builders, and I know the communities and neighborhoods, and most importantly, I know the area market.
However; if you decide a new home is not right for you and your family, I can show you some of the area's finest pre-owned homes. Currently, there are lovely, well-maintained, and affordable homes available, and interest rates are at historic lows, so now is the time to buy!
Ebby Halliday is the eighth largest totally independent (non-franchised) real estate firm in the United States, and is ranked No. 1 in North Texas in closed transactions for 2012; closing 15,916 transactions, a nearly 20% increase over 2011, and nearly 45% more than our nearest competitor! We are on our way toward bettering this mark, with nearly $55 million dollars in sales during the month of March, 2013; the largest monthly volume in the 68 year history of the company, and a first-quarter sales volume of $1.1 billion dollars; another record!
When you're ready to begin your search for your new home, give me a call. Let me put the experience and resources of Ebby Halliday Realtors to work for you.
As part of the real estate sales process, I will be asking for certain information required for completing the necessary contract, addendums, etc. I will require such things as your full name, your legal address, phone number and email address.Your information will never be sold, traded, or given to anyone, and at the end of the transaction will not be retained by me for any other purpose
I will not be asking for any of your financial information. You will be asked by whomever you select for pre-qualification. and your eventual mortgage lender for this information. Other than the fact you have been qualified to purchase property, I have no need to know.
At the conclusion of the transaction (close of escrow), the information relating to the transaction that I am required to keep for a time specified by the Texas Real Estate Commission, is transferred to a CD and stored in a locked safe; accessible only to me. At the end of the required record retention term (currently 3 years), the CD will be destroyed.
As your Buyer's Agent, I will never divulge any information you have provided me in confidence (financial, personal, or otherwise) to anyone; especially the seller or seller's agent of any property you are considering.
