    Could you be making the biggest mistake of your life by using a listing agent

    The question comes to us by Jenny Smith of Sacramento California. Her question is in reference to using listing agents, could that be the biggest mistake a buyer could possibly make?

    These are the facts, the listing agent is in a signed contract with the seller. The listing agent knows the sellers bottom line. The listing agent knows the sellers true motivation and why they want to sell their home, condominium or town home.

    As a buyer, unless you have a buyer broker agreement with your real estate agent, you are not under a signed contract.

    Therefore, from the start, the listing agent has you in a position of advantage. In law-enforcement combat training to have someone in a position of advantage over you means they are more effectively able to counter and be the aggressor.

    When you hire your own representative, That agent that is on your team and your team alone. By this very action, you’ll have now put yourself in a position of advantage over the listing agent and the seller.

    Of course, we love to sell our sellers listings ourselves. But it depends on the seller, whether they are comfortable with the fact that we know their bottom line.

    When we are representing both the seller and the buyer on a single real estate transaction, we know both the sellers bottom line and the buyers maximum amount that they are able to spend.

    Finally, it’s going to come down to how much you trust your chosen real estate professional. Having our backgrounds securely fastened in law-enforcement, makes us question more than most people in the world. By getting the best representative you could possibly find, that will put your best interest above and beyond their own, is not easy with regard to real estate services.

    Do yourself a favor, watch Google, watch Bing, look at yelp, find that real estate agent that will best represent you.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA.
