If you have just purchased a vacant lot, cottage, cabin or custom home and you used a broker, keep using this broker. What i mean is your broker is full of knowledge with respect to referring a builder, landscaper, designer etc. They know who you can trust and who will give you good customer service. I have seen clients try to find these people on their own and sometimes they don't find the right people. Also, your realtor will be familiar with the rules and regulations of your community and of the governing bodies. So if your using a realtor in the north carolina markets, definately continue using them.
