Insured, Fiduciary Representation for Sellers
Marketing your home is only one of the services that I provide to you as your representative. There are three additional services that are just as important. These are negotiating the sale, coordinating the exchange process, and errors and omissions insurance.
I am a trained professional in the art of negotiation and will use my skills and resources to ensure that you receive a fair price and favourable terms. Sometimes the buyer’s agent may use aggressive tactics which can distract sellers from their true goals. It’s comforting for some to know that they have a trustworthy professional on their side at all times.
An accepted offer is only the first step toward a successful sale. The buyers may impose conditions on the contract, like financing or a home inspection. I will guide you through the process and work with the buyer’s agent to overcome any challenges that might arise and cause the contract to be nullified.
When all of the conditions are removed, it’s time to celebrate but also time to prepare for moving into your new home. Our office has relationships with reputable real estate service providers like mortgage brokers, movers, and others that may wish to contact. Realtors® are forbidden from taking commissions from third-parties so you can be assured that my recommendations are impartial and in always in your best interests.
And finally, you can rest easy knowing that the entire process and all the paperwork has been double-checked by my office for accuracy and completeness. Errors and misunderstandings sometimes still happen and it’s good to know that your entire transaction is insured by the Errors & Omissions Corporation, which is a component of the BC Real Estate Services Act.
A note about trust and integrity
All Realtors® are legally required to work from a position of fiduciary duty, which is an obligation to manage your home sale with the same care and attention that I would give my own transaction. You might recognize it as The Golden Rule, or, treating others as we would want to be treated ourselves. You can read more about the REALTOR® Code of Ethics here.
