With the growth of online tools, companies are quickly building products to serve the real estate community. After all, it’s a lucrative industry, home buying and selling will always be a thing - even if it does slow down, and companies around the world are diving in to make as much money off consumers as possible.
What are they selling? The ease. The ease of buying or selling a home online. The catch? You actually don’t benefit from these online quick-sale services. In fact, you could find yourself out of tens-of-thousands in cost difference. If you’re in the market to buy or sell, and are considering foregoing a real estate agent for an online service, be sure you read the fine print. You’ll often times find that you aren’t benefiting at all. Will they buy your home upfront to resale, so you don’t have to worry about the headache? Sure, but you may have been able to get $50,000 more for your house using a Realtor. Can you see and purchase your dream home through said services and “save” on agent commissions? Sure, but you’ll probably be overpaying for the home anyway.
The real estate industry is heavily regulated for licensed professionals to ensure the consumer is always getting the best representation for the best savings. These online services don’t require regulation and licensing, therefore, they can get away with fine print “scams.”
Be sure you do your research. A Realtor is there to make YOU the most money. Quick online services are focused on making their business the most money - not focused on how much you can sell your home for or how much you can save when you buy. Licensed professionals exist for a reason, be sure you don’t lose more than you can afford to by using a gimmicky online service that dubs buying and selling an “easy” process. Any good agent will make the process easy, minus general lending issues that may arise.

Laila Sarvarian believes a key to success in real estate is the building of personal relationships and the constant expansion of her network of not only potential clients, but lifelong friends. Managing Dallas’ largest outdoor fitness program over the past seven years with Camp Gladiator has allowed Laila to grow her personal network exponentially. Her success as a fitness instructor is a result of her knack to provide advice and assistance delivered with a friendly smile and infectious personality. It is these same qualities that allow her to provide her real estate clients with exceptional service as they navigate the DFW Metroplex’s real estate market.
Born and raised in Dallas, Laila left Texas briefly to comple te her degree in communications at the University of Oklahoma before returning to her Texas roots. She enjoys all that Dallas has to offer from listening to live music at the Arboretum, picnicking at Klyde Warren Park or dining at the many restaurants in Trinity Groves. Having been a lifelong resident of Dallas, she has seen the city transform into the exciting environment it is today and is able to offer her clients expertise in a number of neighborhoods.
After assisting a local homebuilder with everything from site selection to design, Laila’s interest in real estate was peaked and she sought out one of Dallas’ most reputable realtors, Rogers Healy and Associates, to partner with to launch her real estate career. While she continues to change lives through her work with Camp Gladiator, Laila strives to do the same with her real estate clients. Laila recognizes that buying or selling a home is a big life event for her clients and she works hard to ensure that her clients have a trusted partner in her that will work hard to not only meet but exceed their expectations, all with a smile on her face.
