Would you go to trial without a lawyer?...most likely not. And, the same holds true for entering into a Real Estate transaction without a Realtor. A Realtor is your advocate and represents your best interests throughout the entire purchase process...especially when it comes to new construction.
With new construction, the sales agent for the builder is representing the builder and ensuring the builder receives the most money for each home they build. Your Realtor will not only negotiate sales price, but also upgrades, builder fees, closing costs and financing fees on your behalf.
Your Realtor is your advisor when it comes to the contract and associated obligations. It is important you fully understand the new construction process and building phases to know when you should schedule key inspections and what opportunities you have to request any building plan changes or upgrades.
A Realtor is familiar with all of the various builders in their market area and can educate you about each builder's reputation and previous client reviews. Additionally, a Realtor can provide you with each builder's standard options and upgrades as well as the measures and materials each builder uses to ensure energy efficiency.
Honestly, most builders actually prefer to work with Realtors...this helps to ensure the client's needs and expectations are met or even exceeded, and provides for a smoother purchase process for all parties.

"Trenton was just the opposite and exceeded my expectations above and beyond all others. He had more knowledge, skills, and expertise then any of the agents I met or worked with that had several years of experience. He acted quickly and in the same day of us speaking, he found EXACTLY what I was looking in the first list that consisted of two homes. I liked one of the two homes, and he made time the next day to show me the home. I loved it and made an offer immediately, which was accepted three days later...on my birthday. I closed 35 days later, only because the Seller's needed more time to find their new home. "
