How I can assist you...
What is a Realtor?
The Realtors function is to provide real estate services to their clients and facilitate legally binding arms length transactions in real property. Unlike typical sales people, Realtors are bound by fiduciary duties that legally bind us to act in a clients best interests as well as provide an honest duty of care to clients and customers. We become your agents through a legal principle of agency representation.
Why use a Realtor?
More and more people today learn about the real estate market and have become saavy to the nature of it. Many individuals seek to minimize the fees associated with real estate transactions, some even choosing to act on their own! Your home is your greatest investment and the amount of liabilty present is a great risk to the most important financial asset you have. When you engage a Realtor and you pay the related fees, you are engaging a machine of protection for yourself, your assets and investments. You are covered safely under the umbrella of the Realtors insurance, governing bodies, related boards, provincial as well federal statutes and experience. We are all mandated to protect you and the real estate marketplace. Your fees keep this machine running and when mistakes or misrepresentations occur you are covered.
