Why I Used a Landed Partner Agent

Emily Eshman | 13 Oct 2021

After nearly four years working at Landed, the time came for me to step into the shoes of our customers.

I was ready to buy my own home in Denver, and started by looking for a great real estate agent.

Fortunately, I was able to look at the list of Landed partner agents. These agents, already real estate pros in their communities, have also taken the time to become experts on how Landed works.

It’s a tough market out there in many cities, but my homebuying journey ended very happily and I give credit to my amazing Landed partner agent.

Here are three reasons I recommend you use a Landed partner agent, too:

You need a pro. A real estate agent not only helps you get your offer accepted, they also help you identify a sound investment. In my former role leading our Landed partner agent program, I sourced and onboarded many agents from many cities. In the process, I met incredibly successful agents who were trusted partners, advocates, and coaches to the homebuyers they helped. Landed partner agents also fully understand our down payment program (where Landed partners with essential professionals so they can reach a 20% down payment).

Specifically, you need a local expert. When I decided to dip my toe into the Denver real estate market, I knew I needed to look no further than Landed’s partner agent network. I chose to work with Andrea Price Valenzuela, given her track record of successfully getting offers accepted in the highly competitive market. She also seemed like a great fit for me (we built trust and rapport quickly), and as a Denver native who has spent her entire career in real estate, she had an extensive knowledge of all things Denver. We have Landed partner agents in all the communities we serve, and these agents can give you a leg-up in a tough market, and help you find a great home.

You also need someone who truly cares. Andrea truly cared about my homebuying journey. She helped immensely throughout the process of making offers, and didn’t disappear after one was accepted. She was there to help all the way through the closing and is still a trusted confidant I can rely on when I have home questions or need related recommendations. Your Landed partner agent will care about your needs and make sure buying a home is as easy and low stress as possible.

I had always felt confident in the strength and effectiveness of the Landed partner agent network I was helping to build, but this firsthand experience solidified and reinforced how much support, education, and joy Landed partner agents can bring to the homebuying process.


Over 90% of customers who have used a Landed partner agent say they would recommend their agent to family and friends. Reach out today to learn more about Landed and our Landed partner network.
