What to Expect From Your REALTOR When Buying

What to Expect From Your REALTOR® When Buying

Your REALTOR® Explains the Process

A REALTOR® will guide you through the ins and outs of the buying process, including current market conditions ranging from legislations, to transactional procedures, and everything in between.

REALTORS® are upheld to very strict standards set to prioritize the interests of the buyers.

REALTORS® Assess Your Needs

One of the first questions a REALTOR® will ask is, ‘Why are you moving?’ A REALTOR® will also explore any time constraints you might have (perhaps imposed by the need to relocate for employment), your financial situation and any future plans. They need a detailed picture of your wants and needs in order to serve you better.

When the scope of work is out of a REALTOR®’s realm of expertise, they will direct you to qualified professionals to aid in the purchase of your home.

A Plan to Find Your Dream Home

A REALTOR® will help you recognize what you’re looking for in a new home. An outdoor pool? A double-car garage? A fenced-in yard? A particular building design? What about the neighbourhood? Proximity to schools or work? A REALTOR® will compare your needs, wants and budget with what is available on the market and make recommendations that save you time and effort.

Your agent will also accompany you to view houses and help you assess their suitability and price. As an expert on a property, a REALTOR® can provide facts on the neighbourhood, the cost of utilities, the condition of the home’s features, and so on. In other words, he or she will work with you to achieve your dream.

Access to Properties for Sale

Multiple Listing Service® or MLS® is an exclusive service accessible through a REALTOR® website and it can be a valuable home-searching tool. Through MLS®, the details of a wide variety of listed properties are made available to the REALTOR® you work with. That can save you a tremendous amount of time and effort in your pursuit of your home search.

REALTORS® are further obligated to uncover any details regarding a property as to ensure no misrepresentation of the property and avoid any errors.

REALTORS® are Skilled Negotiators

REALTORS® are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with sellers. Tempers can flare and heels can dig on. Your REALTOR® is an expert at smoothing things out.

REALTORS® are experienced in arranging fair deals. Your Agent will assist in negotiating an offer, acting as a mediator to resolve potential conflicts between you and the seller, and draw up a legally binding agreement.

Honesty and Integrity

Most real estate professionals in Canada are members of the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) and only members of CREA can call themselves REALTORS®. When you work with a REALTOR®, you can expect strict adherence to a Code of Ethics. And that code is very important to you because it assures you will receive the highest level of service, honesty and integrity.

Legal know-how? They know how.

A mishandled document can ruin a sale, or lead to legal action. Your REALTOR® has the training and experience to recognize potential problems early and the resources to help you find solutions and get the process back on track quickly.

REALTORS® are required to remain up-to-date on requirements for transactions to take place. With their guidance and network, they will be able keep the home buying process a positive experience.

As a REALTOR with several years of experience and a Building Technology background, I understand the complexities of buying and selling real estate. I take pride in providing excellent customer service based on honesty and professionalism. My knowledge in design, construction and building inspection can make a significant difference for buyers who need insight and guidance finding the right Home in Salmon Arm or the Shuswap.   My technical skills and understanding of the real estate industry, combined with my commitment to hard work and customer service, have enabled me to exceed my client's expectations and consistently achieve successful outcomes. 
 
Royal LePage professionals understand that a house is only a home if the people who live there feel safe. I unanimously agree and proudly support by donating a part of my commission to helping individuals and families find safety from domestic abuse. Since its founding in 1998, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has proudly grown to become the largest public foundation in Canada dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and domestic violence prevention. Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company with its own charitable foundation. 
 
 
My clients can trust that I will be honest with them about their home or the home they are considering buying and its current market value. I strive to create a realistic set of expectations through an open dialogue and always provide the resources and market intelligence needed to ensure my clients can make well-informed decisions.
 
My real estate services are focused in the market area surrounding the Shuswap Lake in British Columbia, including Salmon Arm, Blind Bay, Sorrento, the North Shuswap, Enderby, Armstrong and Sicamous, so if you're in the area and search for "Realtors near me" or Royal Lepage Salmon Arm and I'll definitely show up. However, if your needs fall outside the Shuswap region, I have access to a broad referral network and can help my clients wherever their needs are. My services cover various real estate types, from single-family residential, condos and townhouses to vacant land and mobile homes. Homeownership provides a haven for families to grow and prosper, symbolizes stability and achievement, and often represents the most significant single investment people will ever make. I am passionate about the real estate industry and the positive impact I can make on the lives of my clients, all the while being patient, open-minded, empathetic, and showing genuine concern for your needs. I am eager to share my knowledge and expertise and look forward to working with you!
