It is the People - Not the Name that Make a Difference
I was meeting some buyers to see some homes on the real estate market in Milton MA. There were a few homes they wanted to see and as luck would have it, they all had Open Houses scheduled. I arrived at the first one a little bit ahead of my buyers. I signed in, introduced myself to the listing agent & took a look around. He then asked me which agency I was with - and I informed him that I was with Buyers Brokers Only from neighboring Canton MA. I then added that I grew up in Milton MA, which I always do when I am in Milton (mainly to avoid being told all about Milton. I already know what they are trying to tell me.)
That's when I heard it - a slight disdain - "Oh, I've never heard of that company." Well, we are relatively new in real estate terms and we are a small company (although we are the largest Exclusive Buyer Agency in Massachusetts) - but really, does any of that matter? I just smiled and handed him my card. Then I waited for my buyers on the front porch.
It is the people that make a difference, not the name. I am a buyer agent who prides myself on exceptional customer service and providing value to my buyers. I have seen great agents who work for small outfits and those who work for the big names. I have also encountered those who were less than stellar who worked at both places.
So, regardless of the name, consider the service, representation and value that your agent will provide to you.
