Home Buying: Building a Reputation as a Superb Buyer’s Agent

So much of succeeding in the real estate business depends on your reputation. Here are three guiding principles to follow for building a reputation as a buyer’s agent that will bring in business.

  1. Be a clear communicator. If you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask the listing agent or buyer. Communicate with your buyers to educate them on the process and manage their expectations. Err on the side of over-communicating so that everyone is always on the same page. Being a clear communicator establishes you as a professional and builds trust with your clients and business partners.
  2. Respect sellers’ time and property. It’s key to maintain good relationships with local selling agents, so make sure to be polite, professional, and respectful. Work with your listing agent’s schedule, and when you’re doing a showing, treat the home with care.
  3. Get to know your clients. You don’t need to be best friends with every client, but taking the time to get to know their needs and motivations will help you provide the kind of experience they’re seeking.

Every buyer’s agent will have different advice on how to succeed and build a strong reputation, but most of the advice boils down to one of the three tips above. By focusing on communicating and building mutual trust and respect with sellers’ agents and clients, you’ll quickly establish yourself as a trusted partner for anyone looking to buy a home.

Joe R. Testimonial

I am writing this letter to thank you once again for helping me with my home financing, and to share my story – how you helped me. I first applied with a local lender and after 3 months was no further along with my financing. As it turned out, the loan officer left the company without telling me. I was left with higher rates because the lender never locked my loan.

I wish I had called you first because once you took my initial application you discussed all the options, explained the process and told me when my closing would be. You didn’t ask for a lot of documentation but did follow up on the few you requested. We were able to close on time with the interest rate I was initially wanted.

Thank you for a simple fast process … I will continue to send my family and friends to you.
