WHY YOU NEED A

in today’s market more than ever!

With homes moving so quickly in the market, it is more important than ever to have representation. Local agents know the market, understand the comps, and have the connections and skills to help you sell and buy a home aster. Without representation, it is easy to get caught up in the moment and skip some of the obvious measures that will protect you as a buyer or seller. Hiring a Realtor helps mitigate these risks and allows you to have confidence in your real estate decision!

REALTORS OWE A FIDUCIARY RESPONSIBILITY TO THEIR CLIENTS. THIS MEANS A NUMBER OF THINGS: A Realtor is contractually bound to put his client’s interest above all other interests, including his own. As a licensed professional who is deemed to have skills and expertise superior to those of an average person, a Realtor is obligated to use those skills when pursuing his client’s affairs. Unless illegal, it is the responsibility of an agent to follow the instructions of his client even if the agent does not necessarily agree with said instructions. When discussing a client’s transaction with an outside party, a Realtor is obligated to keep confidential anything that could hurt his client’s bargaining position (except for material facts or anything that could be deemed misrepresentation)
