Did you know that 99% of Real Estate "buyer agents" are generalists?
When the consumer hears "buyer agent" they believe that they have an agent who is fully on their side.
Unfortunately - that is not true. Agents who list property for sale (represent sellers) call themselves a buyer agent when working with a buyer. But both they and their company also represent sellers. Your "buyers agent" can get into situations where they are suddenly half on the sellers side (called "dual agency") Their buyer client's information might be compromised with shared fax machines, overheard conversations, un-secure file cabinets and desk/cubicle spaces, and other issues (talking between agents / buddies) that exist in a traditional real estate office.
Each year - thousands of buyers across the United States unwittingly contact the listing agent of the home they are interested in purchasing. That agent is 100% of the seller's side. Worse yet - people sometime purchase the home through that agent - who is not representing their interests at all. Consequently - the buyer overpays and may not have the best home inspector or inspection credits among other issues (such as not having the negatives pointed out to them.)
As Exclusive Buyer Agents in the Chicagoland area, we are specialists, and only represent home buyers - so we have no conflicts of interest.
Buying a home is certainly one of the most important things you will do in your lifetime. You should put such a large financial decision for home buying - in the hands of a specialist - not a generalist.
As your unbiased coach and advocate - we protect your best interests.
You want an agent that points out the negatives, and the disadvantages of a property, and shows properties in an unbiased manner.
We show a wider array of properties than a typical buyer agent - including: For-Sale-By-Owner, Foreclosure / Bank-owned / REO properties, Pre-foreclosure / Short sale, New Construction, Auctions, properties yet to hit the market, and any property listed by any company in the MLS.
Our #1 goal is to help home buyers avoid costly mistakes and protect their best interests!
Unlike other buyer agents - the commission we receive is perfectly aligned with the buyer's interests - rather than the opposite. We make LESS when the home buyer's price goes up - and more when it goes down. Our clients are never out of pocket to us. And - we rebate all advertised bonuses. And if the payout by the listing side is greater than our agreement with our client, we issue a rebate to the client.
