A HOME BUYER can hire a real estate agent to assist them in the purchase
of property. This means that the agent is working for the buyer as a 'Buyer's Agent'.
The job of a buyers agent includes: advising clients on the financing
process, meeting to identify needs & wishes, locating properties
& arranging appointments, viewing properties, making an offer,
negotiating a price and other terms, assistance arranging for
inspections, coordinating communication with the client's attorney and
other parties involved with the transaction, and more... all the way to
closing the deal! Whether you're a first time home buyer, relocating, downsizing or
looking to buy a vacation getaway, I will assist you through all the
steps towards home ownership. I also provide my buyer clients with a Timeline &
Checklist, so they'll know what to expect and when. Further,
as an Accredited Buyer's Agent (ABR), I have gone the extra mile to
provide superior representation services for my buyers. The ABR
designation is considered a "benchmark of excellence in buyer
representation". The Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC) awards
this coveted designation to Realtors who meet the specified educational
and practical experience criteria.
When a buyer engages the assistance of a buyers agent, they should call that agent whenever they wish to see a property. Your buyers agent will arrange viewing appointments for you and can show you any property that's available for purchase no matter where it's being advertised or listed. When a buyer asks for my
help with locating & purchasing property, I may request that they sign
an 'exclusive buyers contract'. Signing this contract simply formalizes
our working relationship & can be canceled at any time if the
client is not satisfied with the services that I'm providing to them. Obtaining the services of a buyers agent does not cost buyers any out of pocket expenses.
FIRST TIME BUYERS: I take extra special care of my first time home buyer clients. My clients are encouraged to take their time and not rush the process. I will work hard to make sure that you are well informed and have the opportunity to ask questions every step of the way. Please contact me even if you're not sure that you're ready to buy a home. I'd be happy to meet with you, show you how the process works, explore the options and discuss the current market. My 'no pressure' approach is meant to be informative but casual, so that you'll be confident and ready to go when the time comes.
