How do you choose a REALTOR®?
Everyone knows a real estate agent or has worked closely with one in the past. With so many choices, how do you know who to choose to sell your most prized possession, your home? I have the experience and training to market your property and negotiate your behalf. This is an overview of some of the service I will provide to you, the home owner.
Marketing begins with a thorough analysis of current conditions and recent sales. Real estate is a commodity like any other and prices can rise or fall rapidly depending on a variety of influences. Determining the right price for the time frame in which you want to move takes careful research. My personal listings are syndicated to many different websites across Canada, accompanied by professional media and an accurate description of the property.
Contract of sale negotiations
A buyer will usually be represented by their own agent. Their job is to obtain the lowest possible purchase price, and as your representative, my role is to find a balance between the asking price and the selling price. When everything works properly, your home will sell for market value and both parties will be satisfied.
Coordinating the closing
As the sale moves through the various stages of financial qualifications, due diligence, and final approvals, you can count on me to safeguard your interests and keep the sale moving to its conclusion so you can look forward to your new home, wherever that is.
Fiduciary duty to you
This is the highest standard of care in equity or law. As a REALTOR®, I am a fiduciary and am required by law to have an undivided interest in your transaction. A fiduciary is expected to be extremely loyal to the person to whom he owes the duty (the home owner or buyer). Fiduciary duties in a financial sense exist to ensure that those who manage other people’s money act in their beneficiaries’ interests, rather than serving their own interests.
