The Local REALTOR® Difference If you are considering buying or selling property in Milton, there are some compelling reasons why you should work with a REALTOR® who is registered to a brokerage within the Town. Why? They have local connections; they know the local issues and the market. Simply put, they know Milton. A local REALTOR® will be able to market your property quickly to other local REALTORS® and their clients. They’ll have a network of contacts for other services that you may need, such as appraisers, inspectors, and lawyers. Your local REALTOR® will be able to advise you about Halton Conservation regulations or Niagara Escarpment Commission restrictions as well as future community plans and residential growth. Milton REALTORS® will know the latest trends in neighbourhoods and will be valuable when the time comes to negotiate. They’ll know whether a property will provide the environment you are looking for and whether it is suitable for your needs. A local REALTOR® is a great resource to save you time and money when it comes to buying or selling property. For the purpose of the MadeInMilton.ca web site and the Made In Milton public awareness campaign, a “local Milton REALTOR®” is defined as a Member of The Oakville, Milton and District Real Estate Board who is registered to a brokerage office that is located within the geographical boundaries of the Town of Milton, Ontario.
