Why Work with a Buyer's Agent?

Real Estate Agents Working Exclusively for homebuyers

Exclusive Buyer Brokerage represents only homebuyers - never sellers. It's a true fiduciary relationship of transparency & trust, usually at no cost to the Buyer.

For many people, buying a home is the single biggest purchase of their life. Making an offer and negotiating with a seller can be one of the most difficult and stressful parts of the home buying process.

You want an expert to represent you and your interests. Your Buyer Agent negotiates on your behalf throughout the entire transaction: saving you time, money and avoiding potential problems.

Navigating Due Diligence

Navigating due diligence

The Due Diligence period is the buyer’s obligation to thoroughly investigate a property within a specified time to determine whether the buyer remains satisfied with the property before finalizing the purchase. The purpose of the inspections is to make sure there are no major unknowns or significant defects in the home.

Your Buyer’s Agent manages the contract process and paperwork allowing the buyer to focus on learning everything about the property before the purchase is made - connecting them with professionals such as inspectors and contractors, saving time and money.

Buyer’s agents are area experts with insider knowledge

Well-connected Buyer’s Agents have access to properties not yet on the market. In some markets, real estate transactions are completed before some properties ever hit the market. In neighborhoods with low inventory levels, you want and need an area expert.

Buyer’s agents are top price negotiators

Top Buyer’s Agents have gone through this many times. They’ll help you figure out the best bidding and negotiation strategy - so you can get the right home at the right price.

Committing to a Buyer’s Agent

Right now you are a customer and we can talk about real estate in general. If you choose to enter into a buyer’s agency agreement with us, we would be able to give you our opinion on value and have fiduciary responsibility to you as our client.

Typically there is no compensation required from you to have representation. Compensation typically comes from the seller’s proceeds.
