[vc_toggle title="What is a Buyer Representative?" open="false"]A Buyer Representative works solely for you and has no legal or other responsibilities to the seller.* When working with a Buyer Representative, you have the advantage of personal representation, independent counseling, loyalty, confidentiality, and trust. On the other hand, while helping you present an offer and then negotiate and close a transaction, a general real estate agent has certain fiduciary responsibilities to the seller and agent of any property you choose.
*In a case where the property your agent is representing you to buy is also that agent’s listing, dual agency applies. Talk to your agent for more information.[/vc_toggle]
[vc_toggle title="Does a Buyer Representative make decisions for us?" open="false"]No. As your personal ally, advocating your best interests, a Buyer Representative is obligated to provide you with maximum information about buying a home, each step of the way. That means disclosing specifics about location, property values, offering price, negotiations, counter-offers, contingencies, financing, and the entire closing process. Armed with such vital and detailed information, you’ll be thoroughly prepared to make decisions that are right for you and your family. [/vc_toggle]
[vc_toggle title="What about negotiating the details?" open="false"]First, a Buyer Representative is fully qualified and highly skilled in the back-and-orth negotiations and financing queries that precede the closing of most real estate transactions. Second, a Buyer Representative is also experienced and committed to helping protect your best interests in the purchase. Representing you and supporting you – that’s a powerful combination!

[vc_toggle title="Do I need to get pre approved?" open="false"]YES. Before you start looking at homes it is very important to speak with a loan officer. After finding out how much you are approved for, I can show you homes that match that price range. It is easy to get caught up in features of home that are not in your budget[/vc_toggle]
