OUR NAME SAYS WHO WE WORK FOR
(It doesn’t say ‘WHY” or “HOW”)
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
There’s an unspoken fact that real estate agents in California are trained to list properties and represent sellers. Historically, listings drive sales and income for agents. Not hard to figure where their interests lie.
Most agents are either: 1. listing agent under a formal contract to represent a Seller, or 2. a sub-agent of the listing agent that “brings” a buyer to purchase. Things are not starting out well for a buyer.
In the authorized listing agreement there is a reference to “CBB” or Courtesy to Buying Broker – how much the seller has authorized the listing agent to pay a sub agent.
The BUYER IS NOT FORMALLY REPRESENTED.
If they were, there would be written agreement between the Buyer and their agent as to the duties, responsibilities and authority. Just like the Seller’s agent. But……..NOPE!
ERGO, “Caveat Emptor” BUYER BEWARE!!! Incredible that the largest, most complicated transaction in the life of most people is handled by individuals whose allegiance is to the Seller – and by written Contract!! WOW, WOW, WOW.
Don’t think negotiation is important? Ever been to divorce court? We have!
Seven years ago, we became a Buyer Broker with all of the responsibilities and duties it entails. Because of our experience in investment banking, real estate, lending, building, developing, escrow, title, etc. we felt uniquely qualified. AND YES, WE USE A WRITTEN AGREEMENT WITH OUR CLIENTS.
If you guessed that WE DON’T “SELL” HOUSES, you’d be correct. It would be a violation of our representation agreement with our Client. If you guessed that WE ARE TOTALLY BUYER-LOYAL; LOVE TO FIND SUPERIOR DEALS AND NEGOTIATE HARD FOR OUR CLIENT, you would be correct.
EXPERIENCE COUNTS! We approach every transaction as though it’s for us – because, as investors, sometimes it is! We’ve owned everything from starters to multi-million-dollar homes. We’ve had the hiccups and turned that weakness into a strength. Very few things we haven’t seen or experienced. Problem solving is not an integral part of the process….. IT IS THE PROCESS!
AND…………..WE DISCOVERED SOMETHING JUST AS IMPORTANT!
In San Diego County, there are 560,000 residences that are NOT occupied by the owner. And, 96% of these people ABSOLUTELY hate renting!!
MOST AGENTS IGNORE THEM. WE LOVE THEM. Out of every 100 would be Buyers, 40% cannot qualify for a loan today. We call them a Buyer with challenges regarding a loan – A “CHALLENGED BUYER”
So, over the last 7 years we developed ways for renters to become owners! Many different methods, terms, and combinations all of which do not entail getting a loan to close a transaction.
SO WHERE 99% OF AGENTS SAY “NO”, WE SAY “LET’S TALK”
IF YOU CAN REMEMBER 1 THING – IT’S THAT WE’RE ON YOUR SIDE
