Finding the Best Buyers Agent in the Portland Metro Area
Today, I read this post: When Parents Attack, by Jared Christiansen and realized he was one of the best buyers agents, well . . . maybe not in the Portland Metro area, but in his local market.
Realizing that finding the best buyers agent in the Portland Metro area is top priority to many buyers, I could feel the frustration in Jared's post.
Sadly, when searching for the best buyers agent some buyers overlook what we're trying to tell them.
Jared writes about the frustrations. The advice he gave to a potential buyer client boiled down to: "Hey, thanks for giving me 10 homes you want to see. (Potential buyer found them on the Internet).
"But . . . they're all out of your price range."
If you are a buyer in the Portland Metro area, wouldn't you want the best advice from the buyers agent?
Just because a person might know how to change a tire or change the oil on their vehicle -- when they need more then this . . . they go to a knowledagebe, reliable mechanic when the "check engine" light goes on.
Just because a person can search listings, see the price drops and how many days on the market a property was listed . . . the best buyers agent will do more then just find properties in the Portland Metro area to tour. The best buyers agents are knowledgeable and reliable.
As a well-seasoned real estate buyers agent in the Portland Metro area since 1999, my clients realize I do the following. In no particular order:
My buyer clients in the Portland Metro area realize I do more then just open the door and show property to them. They want their agent to be the best buyers agents in the Portland Metro area. They realize that just because they found a property on the Internet, they want my best real estate practices to analysis the property and they want me to provide consultation. As a result, my buyers agent real estate practice continues to thrive and I am one of the best in what I do.
Finding a home to tour is just a small segment of the real estate services I provide my buyer clients.
Many buyers (as in Jared's post) believe that's all we do -- show property. Sure, that's part of it . . . but nowhere nearly close when it comes to the all-encompassing REPRESENTATION we provide. The best buyers agent I know, here in the Portland Metro area and in other markets across the nation, offer advice.
PLEASE LISTEN TO US!
In Jared's case, had his consultation been LISTENED to instead of being met with confrontation, the buyer would have had one of the best buyers agents representing THEIR best interests.
When Jared was consulting them on why viewing 10 properties that were listed at 20% ABOVE the first-time home buyer's PRE-APPROVAL was NOT in their best interests, they weren't listening.
