How To Ensure Your Real Estate Company Cares About You
Well, it's that time of year when we start to see the migration of agents who change from one real estate company to another. Why?
Because most real estate agents are not productive ... and they have scores of real estate brokers singing siren songs to persuade them to make a move.
What Is A Real Estate Company?
Most people who buy a home or sell a home don't realize it, but the majority of real estate companies are in the business of recruiting and retaining real estate agents and are specifically not in the business of helping consumers buy and sell homes.
- Why should this matter to you? Well, if you are needing to sell a home or buy a home, it is likely that the agent you are dealing with is a "lone ranger" and won't have any real support from his or her real estate company. Sadly, they care more about retaining a real estate agent than they do about you as a customer of their business.
- What can you do about it? Choose to interview the agent you plan on hiring to help you sell a home (or buy a home) at the real estate office. Ask to have the broker speak with you as well, and see how the whole office works together. Whether buying or selling, you'll be spending a lot of money for their service; demand the best.
- How do you find one? In the "old days," you might have asked your friends for some names of people in real estate. Today, there is a smarter way. Ask Google! See who Google keeps referring your way from the local real estate company and real estate agent pool. If you ask enough questions, you will find the right answers.
Choosing A Real Estate Company
When choosing a real estate company for the job of selling a home or helping you buy a home, do your homework!
Real estate agents are sales people, it is normal for you to like what they have to say. But talk is cheap.
Find out from their real estate broker how they will ensure that you get premium service, whether selling or buying. And find out all of the services the real estate company provides to ensure that you don't just get a real estate agent. We like to say "why hire a real estate agent when you can get an entire real estate company?"
