Tips for Buyers

You probably already know that it is important to use a BUYER’S AGENT realtor to help you negotiate the best price and terms for your new home.  What you may not know is that an ACCREDITED BUYER REPRESENTATIVE (ABR®) is the prestigious designation for the nation’s top Buyer’s Agents, as awarded by the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council of the National Association of Realtors®.

Advantages of Using an Accredited Buyer Representative

As your ABR® Buyer’s Agent I am fully committed to YOU as a buyer.  As opposed to working with the seller’s agent who must remain a neutral party between the buyers and sellers, here are the advantages I can offer you as your Buyer’s Agent, at NO COST to you:

  • Advice and counsel
  • Confidentiality of your bargaining and financial position
  • Promotion and protection of YOUR best interests
  • Negotiations of the best price and terms for you
  • Recommendations on reasons not to buy when appropriate
  • Passing on information which may enhance your bargaining position
  • Assisting in writing the offer with YOUR best interests in mind.
