Henrico County Home for Sale SOLD

Henrico County Home for Sale SOLDThe RVA Home Team with Jefferson Properties is once again proud to have assisted another client in purchasing the home of their choice! This Henrico County home for sale has SOLD!

I will never forget speaking to this couple for the first time. They had called me after finding a property on my website and wanted to set up a tour. I explained buyer agency representation and, as it turns out, they were very familiar with it. They informed me their previous agent had told them about it BUT they were mis-lead as the agent told them the agreement had to be for a full six months. That simply isn't true. Yes, it is Virginia law for a buyer agency agreement to be in place before touring or having a substantial conversation about a particular property, however it can for for ANY duration of time. My soon-to-be-clients were so turned off from this past experience that they were simply calling listing agents of properties they had interest in, so not to be bound with another less than honest agent.


A Richmond VA Realtor must earn trust.


Obviously gun shy, and rightfully so, I had to win the trust of this couple. I told them I was not the listing agent of the property they were inquiring about and I outlined how buyer agency agreements really worked. After an honest conversation, we all decided that we would work by a 24 hour buyer agency agreement. We toured approximately 4 homes before they had decided to sign a longer agreement with me. All this couple needed, and deserved, was someone with integrity to assist them. As with all of my clients, I promised if at any time they were not completely satisfied with my performance, I would happily terminate any agreement we had in place. Do unto others.


As luck would have it, we never did sign that 3-6 month buyer agency agreement as that 4th property ended up being the perfect home for them to purchase! We wrote up the contract and had relatively smooth sailing throughout the transaction. It is always a pleasure to work with reasonable clients and a professional Realtor on the other side of the deal.

Shannon, I recently ran into a similar situation with buyers. They really didn't want to sign the buyers agreeement. They finally agreed. Now that we've gone out several times, they are wondering why they ever hesitated. Sometimes buyers just need the chance to get to know us.
