ADVANTAGES OF HAVING A BUYER/AGENCY AGREEMENT

Your Interests are Professionally Represented

Enlisting the services of a professional Buyer's Agent is similar to using an accountant to help you with your taxes, a doctor to help you with your health care, or a mechanic to help you with your car.  If you had the time to devote to learning everything about these things, you could do these services yourself.  But who has the time?  This is why you allow other professionals to help you in their specific areas of expertise.  I will take care of the hassles of everyday real estate transactions for you!  I let you concentrate on YOUR full-time job while I do MY job. 

You Get a Personal Specialist Who Knows Your Needs

As your Buyer's Agent, I get to know your real estate needs and concerns.  This type of relationship is built through open communication at all times.  I will save you a lot of time by providing you all the details about any home before you see it.  In addition, as your Agent, I will listen to your feedback and concerns about each home.

You Will Quickly and Conveniently Get the RIGHT Home

The advantage to signing a Buyer's Agency Agreement with me is that you will have a professional agent working to find and secure the ideal home for you.  It is nearly impossible to find a home that meets your needs, get a contract negotiated, and close the transaction without an experienced agent.  You won't need to spend endless evenings and weekends driving around looking for a home or trying to search your computer networks by yourself.  When you tour homes with me, you will already know that the homes meet your criteria and are within your price range.

What is the Buyer's Agency Agreement?

Entering into a Buyer's Agency Agreement has countless advantages.  When you sign the agreement, you are simply agreeing to "hire" a personal representative who, by law, must represent your best interests to the best of their ability.  All of this personal service is available at NO COST to you!  The Seller's Agent is responsible for paying my fee!  With me, you get a professional devoted to protecting your needs and to helping you make one of the most important investment decisions of your life - and you don't even have to pay the fee!  WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK!
