How can we represent you?
Buyer’s Agency—The Realtor® represents the buyer’s best interests during the home buying process by explaining every step, maintaining fiduciary responsibility, reasonable care, loyalty, and confidentiality while negotiating for the benefit of the buyer.
Seller’s Agency—The Realtor® represents the interests of the seller during the home buying process by holding fiduciary responsibility, reasonable care, loyalty, and confidentiality while negotiating for the benefit of the seller.
Transaction Broker—The Realtor® must use reasonable skill and care while assisting both the buyer and seller throughout the real estate transaction by performing terms of written and oral agreements, fully-informing all parties, presenting all offers, assisting parties with contracts and closing documents without being an advocate of either party. Use of property disclosures and known adverse material facts must be used during the transaction.
What are the benefits of signing an Agency contract with my chosen Realtor®?
By approving an Agency contract, broker representation is determined. The broker shall protect your best interests, and provide representation not only when negotiating the purchase of a home or sale of a property, but all through the process.
How are Realtors® compensated?
Typically, the buyer’s agent is compensated by the listing broker, who offers an advertised co-operative commission percentage. The seller pays the listing broker upon the closing of the property. Buyer’s Agency does allow for the Buyer to pay the Buyer’s Agent directly if they so desire.
