BUYERS: "LOYALTY PAYS OFF"
Some buyers like to leave their name with three or four sales people. Although it may seem to be to the buyer's advantage to have a number of real estate agents to work with, it is usually a very ineffective approach. The assumption is that many real estate agents will produce more results than working exclusively with one. THIS IS NOT TRUE! YOU NEED THE TOTAL COMMITMENT OF ONE REAL ESTATE AGENT. My advice to you is to find a Realtor whom you feel will get the results you need. Tell this real estate agent that you will work exclusively with him or her ( SIGNING A BUYERS AGENCY CONTRACT IS RECOMMENDED ) as long as you see the effort required to get the job done. In this way, you will have a dedicated real estate agent who will take on the personal responsibility of handling all the details of your home purchase.
Realtors are paid on a straight commission basis. They don't receive a salary. They are not on an expense account. They don't get paid unless they SELL YOU SOMETHING. This is why working with more than one agent is not a good idea. None of the real estate agents know if their efforts will result in any income. If a Realtor knows that you will be loyal to them that is all the motivation needed to provide, a real estate agent, dedicated to getting the job done right.
