WHY USE AN AGENT

Something like 90% of deals in Denver and Colorado Springs are being handled by 10% of the active agents. What does this mean? It means there are a few agents who are killing it. And a lot who aren't.

So right up front, please do not just go with your friend who just got their license. It's the best decision you'll make. You need to ensure that you're getting professional and experienced advice.

 

So what does a great real estate buyer's agent have to offer?

 

A LEVEL HEAD

  • Act as a calming force during a highly emotional process

  • Buy you beer or coffee during stressful times

  • Patiently answer your questions for the third time when you feel you really need to understand a point

 

NEGOTIATING POWER

  • An experienced agent knows when to push and how to give their client the best chance of getting what they need.

 

GUIDANCE

  • Recommend reputable lenders to get you pre-approved and establish realistic search parameters

  • Provide trusted advice and manage your emotions (seriously, this is important)

  • Structure a property search around what's important TO YOU  

  • Search listings daily and as they come on the market to find properties that match your criteria

  • Schedule appointments and accompany you on showings

  • Prepare your offer, review disclosure forms and loan information and deliver the contract

  • Manage deadlines so your earnest money is protected

  • Quickly relay communication from buyers to listing agents

 

ACCOUNTING
