We work hard to earn the Buyers trust and we do fix whatever comes up 98% of the time! Joy Via Patricia Kennedy (Evers & Company Realtors): Earlier this week, I wrote Hey! Look Me Over! with advice on what to look for in a buyer broker. So what happens after you interview a few agents and find one you think will be a good choice? Most buyer brokers want you to sign some sort of agreement (0 comments)
