The Importance of Good Representation

We are ready to be by your side and advocating for your best interests—every step of the way. 

First things first. Buying a home can be a stressful and trying time for even seasoned home buyers, but if you are unfamiliar with the area, or are buying during a personally stressful time it can be a nightmare. The most important thing to us is that we make the process a positive experience for you, and that you are happy with your new home at the end.

There have been many changes in the real estate industry the last few years—and there will probably be more to come! Beginning sometime around late August (2024), real estate agents will be required to sign a buyer-broker agreement with their clients. This form will outline how and how much agents will be compensated for their services. (A separate agency disclosure form detailing the duties of the agent to their buyer is already standard practice, but these duties may be in the buyer-broker agreement as well.)

The seller of a home may still offer a commission equal to the terms of the buyer-broker agreement to the buyer's agent, or a portion of that commission. In that case, the buyer would only owe the buyer's agent the shortfall of the agreed upon amount in the buyer-broker agreement. 

The  way that agent commissions will be structured or disclosed when the new rules take effect is unclear at this point. Rest assured that we are committed to transparency and are always ready to answer your questions about all of this—and if we don't have the answer we will find it and report back to you! 

Let's talk about your new dream home! We know that you are busy! We can meet you at your current home, our office, or almost anywhere else that is convenient for you. Alternatively, we can also communicate via phone, text, email or video conference should your schedule or current location make an in-person meeting difficult.
