Here are the most common misconceptions of real estate agents:
They only care about selling you a home
We go above and beyond for our clients. It’s about the process leading up to the transaction. Getting to know you, your timeline, and what’s important to you. We strive to achieve the results you want while protecting your interests along the way by being fully transparent, avoiding conflicts, and most importantly, keeping all your information protected.
Once the transaction is complete, you won’t hear from your agent again
Your agent spent the time getting to know you and helping you through the process, they may not connect with you as frequently but you are not forgotten! You may even get perks like client appreciation events and quarterly or yearly updates of market changes.
Real estate agents will do anything to make a sale
While some agents may have this reputation, many are incentivized to hold themselves to a certain ethical standard with their clients. Agents build their brand on their reputation and hope to obtain referrals through their past and current clients.
All agents are the same
Real estate agents have unfortunately gotten put under the umbrella of greedy sales people. The media definitely likes to gravitate towards the disgraceful stories that make it seem all agents are untrustworthy or sly. Even though there are agents out there who do fall under that umbrella, we are not all the same! Times have changed and so have REALTORS®.
It’s understandable that when someone has had one or multiple bad experiences with a real estate agent that they won’t want to deal with another one. If this is the case, it doesn’t hurt to have a conversation with a few different agents to find one that works best for you. Buying or selling is a big decision and you want to make sure you are taken care of throughout the whole process.
