Researching to engage a Buyers Advocate? Here is what to look for.

Your Independent Buyers Advocate should be able to guide, support and listen to their clients. They need to have a firm understanding of not only their client’s buying motivations, but the intricate details 

 Before deciding on your Buyers Advocate, meet with them face to face (or via Zoom), to ensure they are a good fit for you. Making sure they fit your personality and have similar communication style to you, will make achieving mutual understandings far easier down the track.  

 I work so closely with my clients and it’s so important that we communicate well and work together.  

 For your initial conversation with a Buyers Advocate, consider the following;  

  • How experienced is the buyer’s advocate? 
  • Do they have a solid knowledge of the local area in which you are searching? 
  • What qualifications do they have? 
  • What are their most recent purchases? 
  • Do they own property themselves? 
  • Do they have the contacts to find you the property that best suits your criteria? 
  • Are they REBAA (Real Estate Buyers Agent Association Australia) accredited? 

Another important question to ask a Buyer’s Advocate is whether they are truly “exclusive  

An exclusive Buyer’s Advocate does not sell real estate or accept any fees from developers for representing their clients in a property purchase. They focus specifically on representing their client in a real estate transaction and must adhere to the strict standards outlined by REBAA. In other words, Exclusive is GOOD!!!
