A Beverly  Hills International Realtor in action: check it out!

www.endrebarath.com

The international buyer and seller is highly active in Beverly Hills and the surrounding vicinity;  a successful realtor knows that it is important  to reach out to them and work with them.

As an example,  I am currently in escrow with a seller who lives in London, one who is in Italy, and one  who lives in  Budapest, Hungary. Next week, I am closing on an escrow with a  buyer who lives in Canada. Last week, I was negotiating a property where the buyer is from Taiwan. Needless to say,  these are all vacant lots spanning the greater Los Angeles area.

My best advice to potential buyers and sellers who do not live in the U.S. is that they find a seasoned Realtor who understands their wants and needs and can guide them to a successful close. How is this goal achieved?  The most important aspect one needs is a great deal of patience. The Realtor needs to be a thoughtful teacher and provide a great deal of clarification. Remember, buying and selling properties is different in California and in every area of the United States from their country.

Open and detailed communication is key. The international client needs to understand that we are the messengers, not the decision makers, then things will typically work out fine. Naturally, there will be times when this is not the case when we deliver a message that the international client does not like or does not  like or understand. They presume that we are the ‘bad guy’, when in reality of course we are not.

One major key I’ve found in making the transaction seamless has been the advent of technology. Thanks to the Internet and electronic communications such as DocuSign, email, WhatsApp  and texting to name a few,  our communication has been enhanced.

It is hard to believe that 25 years ago I had beeper and had to run to a payphone to respond to client calls when I was not in the office. Then I  upgraded to a  Motorola Phone I carried in a suitcase and stashed in between the passenger and driver seats of my car. I still remember how excited I was when the handheld Motorola came to replace my suitcase phone. I ran to the store for that upgrade that only weighed about a pound or so. Not mentioning the further smart phones that now have, suffice it to say we have come a very long way in helping clients all over the Globe.

Great post Endre Barath, Jr. I can relate to you, as I work with many clients from South America. I get many calls a week from prospective customers that want to invest in the area. You are right about us being like teachers, we have to educate them and provide all the necessary information so they can make their own decisions.

Endre Barath, Jr. - After reading your history in the business, I wonder how many trees were killed 25 years or more ago by ALL people and what impact all that paper and carbon paper served on our planet. But no need to answer... You have had a steady climb reaching new heights and meeting many challenges with perseverance. Your reputation in this business is impeccable. I wouldn't dream of dipping my toes into International Waters when it comes to the real estate business and that's why I'm glad I know you for referral business.
