A Single Piece of Advice from Buyer’s and Seller’s Agent

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Atlanta Partners 242866

The dual nature of Henry County real estate agents is unlike most other professions. A medical doctor who is a family physician in the morning doesn’t switch hats and become a surgeon in the afternoon—any more than a lawyer who pleads in court for a defendant can decide to become a prosecuting attorney that afternoon.

On the other hand, Henry County Realtors® may begin any single day in negotiations representing a seller, then spend the afternoon escorting a buyer client through a series of Henry County home showings. I’m happy to say this isn’t evidence of a split personality disorder. It’s perfectly normal: the Georgia real estate agent’s license I carry specifically permits me to perform as either a buyer’s or a seller’s agent. That’s noteworthy because each of the agencies carries distinct professional obligations.

The subject of the duality of being a real estate agent came to mind this week when I happened across an article on the topic of the 3 things you shouldn’t talk about with a seller’s agent. The author listed the 3 things: how much you like (or dislike) a house; the size of your budget; and (well, the last one wasn’t specifically what not to talk about)—just the advice to buyers to “let your agent do the talking.”

I can vouch for all three, but go it one further: the same real estate agent advice works for sellers, too. Your agent is there to expertly gather and dispense relevant information, at the same time preventing the divulging of any and everything that might weaken your side of the coming bargain. Doing so while maintaining a positive, upbeat tenor is an art—one that sharpens with practice. For sure it’s one place where there is no substitute for experience.

Whether your next Henry County real estate role will be as buyer or seller, I can be there to serve as your voice—as well to offer my experience, guidance, and advice you can count on. Call me!

In Florida we are presumed to be Transaction brokers, and may be dealing with both sides on the same transaction. And it works fine.
