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.

Jim has refinanced my mortgage

Jim has refinanced my mortgage 3 times over the last 10 years. 2 of the 3 times were very difficult circumstances and Jim was able to find a program that really helped me moving forward. The transactions were quick and painless. Jim helped me stay calm and take one step at a time through the process. Jim would follow up and touch base to make sure I was doing well and to see if I had any questions. I know I can trust Jim to take care of me and put me in a safe and secure financial position. I always recommend Jim to my family and friends!
