The Crux of the Matter
Most real estate transactions go fine, but almost every one has a challenge or two. These challenges are often routine, but sometimes not. Because the real estate agent has divided loyalties, one side or another may doubt where these loyalties truly lie. Mistrust develops. This can take a small problem and blow it out of proportion. At that point, it becomes a crisis.
Having a real estate advisor on your side as your advocate removes the mistrust and helps keep things on an even keel. If a challenge develops, you know where your agent stands. Plus, the seller pays for it, not you!
Our Commitment To You
Our agents are educated in the legal aspects of real estate practice and licensed by the Province of Alberta to provide real estate services. We earn our living by serving the needs of home buyers and sellers with integrity.
A large part of our work is performed “behind the scenes”; previewing homes, researching comparable sales, gaining market knowledge, evaluating changing legislations and maintaining our professional credentials. For every hour we spend showing you homes, our team will have spent up to ten hours preparing. We are constantly acquiring information that will help us to better serve you.
How Buyer's Agents Are Compensated
Real estate agents are not paid a traditional salary: They work usually on commission, which they receive only if they initiate and complete a transaction for you. We are compensated only when all of your needs have been satisfied and you take ownership of your new home. Services provided on your behalf are not compensated unless you purchase a home through us. Real estate commissions traditionally are paid on closing day from the seller’s proceeds, not out of your pocket. Most often, buyer's representation is a service that is FREE to you, which protects your interests.
Your Commitment to Us
We will invest substantial time and effort in locating your home, and will represent you with unequalled integrity throughout the purchase of that home. In return, we request your loyalty, a commitment that you will work with us exclusively, in selecting and purchasing your home.
