Can your real estate agent trust you?

Posted on: March 5th,2014 By Rod Friesen

Realtors are generally normal people with kids, lawns that need to be cut, golden retrievers and mortgages just like you.

They have chosen a difficult but rewarding career.

Difficult because they are expected to always be on call and work many days of the week totally unpaid, willingly offering free advice and showing properties to folks who don’t buy.

Difficult because of the mountains of legislation and legal updates they need to be aware of so they don’t get sued while navigating a normal working day in the real estate business.

A trusted agent will jump on-line or step away from a turkey dinner with all the fixins’ to answer your question on the phone about the size of a second bedroom.

Don’t break your agent’s heart by being disloyal

You used good judgement in choosing your agent and you have promised to communicate all your thoughts, ideas and questions to them as you navigate this process together.

Believe it or not you have to trust each other through over 200 steps in a normal real estate transaction.

Great agents live by their positive reputation. Don’t worry.
Pushing you to sell your home for under market value or not representing your interests is not
beneficial to their long term careers in any way.

Allow yourself to trust your agent and stick with them through the ups and downs that always happen in the market.

This will go a long ways towards your agent trusting you.

It’s just human nature

A great agent that trusts you completely will always go the extra mile.
