Working With a Realtor

Working with a Realtor
Once you are pre-approved, it is time to obtain the services of a realtor. Engaging a licensed Real Estate Professional is one of the first and most important steps you should take in to finding the best property available.
By committing to your realtor, you will insure that you have instant access to every new listing and a skilled negotiator to act on your behalf and protect your best interest during the offer process.
You want someone who relates well to you, someone who listens carefully and understands your needs, someone who knows the market and has a reputation for integrity, honesty and results.
Choose a realtor who you believe will always put your interests first and is prepared to devote as much time as necessary into helping you reach your real estate goal.
Expect that a realtor who commits to working with you will want you to also commit to working solely with him or her. More and more realtors are now entering into agency agreements with their buyer clients. These agreements clearly set out the obligations of the realtor and the client.
Your home is a very important asset; probably the most expensive financial decision you will make in your lifetime -You already know it makes sense to go to a specialist to get the job done, similar to how you consult other expert advisers, such as lawyers, accountants,financial planners or mortgage brokers, a Real Estate Professional is your housing expert. It makes sense to find an experienced professional who can meet your short-term needs and your long-term financial plan. Make the most of it!
As a professional working in the real estate industry in Victoria for over 25 years, I would be happy to recommend one of the many excellent Realtors that I have worked with in the past.
