Can you share your commission with me if you represent me as your buyer?

I get this question all the time, and it is a valid question! Here is my response to it:

Are you looking for a realtor who…….

–          Will answer the phone every time you call or call you back within hours?

–          Will represent you exclusively and only have your best interest as a top priority?

–          Understands the market trends, inventory, and sellers’ mentality?

–          Is not pushy, but understanding of your specific situation?

–          Is aggressive when need be?

–          Has strong negotiation skills?

–          Understands the standard, required California purchase contracts and disclosures?

–          Will make time to show you any and all homes that you are interested in?

–          Will not push your file over to his/her assistant?

–          Will refer you to a lender who will get you in the RIGHT financing program?

–          Has a strong team you can trust behind him such as termite, home inspection, escrow officer, title, etc?

–          Will work around your schedule?

–          Is honest and upfront even if the answers are not what you want to hear?

–          Is 100% committed to finding you the RIGHT home?

–          Will be there to help/guide you even after you have purchased the right home?

–          You can count on to answer any and all questions you may have regarding the process until you feel comfortable?

So then let me ask you…..Are you looking for a realtor who has ALL of these characteristics or just SOME of them?  So then what is more important to you……working with a realtor who you can trust and know that they have your back or just any old realtor who gives you a couple thousand dollars back at the close of escrow?  Most buyers don’t realize that a strong realtor can save them tens of thousands of dollars where a weak or inexperienced one may cost them much more than they are actually given.
