What is a Real Estate Broker

What Does a Real Estate Broker Do For Me?

Broker: A Broker represents the buyer or seller when purchasing real estate. A Real Estate Agent or Realtor must hold their license with a Broker.

When representing a Buyer—The Broker becomes the buyer’s agent, with a written buyer representation agreement and will assist you with locating the property that will match your needs as well as lender requirements. This means finding a home in the location, size and price range that meets the buyer’s goals. Once the buyer is satisfied with the property the Agent (Broker/Realtor) will assist with negotiations and completing necessary documents for the real estate transaction. The buyer’s agent represents the buyer’s interests.

When representing a Seller – The Broker becomes the Seller’s agent, with a written listing agreement and will assist you with gathering information by conducting a CMA (Competitive Market Analysis). They will offer advice on how to make your home ready for sale. Complete necessary documents pertaining to representation. Market your home by placing real estate signs, listing your home on MLS (Multiple Listing Service), websites and various print advertisements. The seller’s agent represents the seller’s interests.

Intermediary – A Brokermay act as an intermediary between buyer and seller. With written consent to act as an intermediary, and may not disclose confidential information.

Excellent post. I would like to add the the best real estate broker goes above and beyond for their client, walks them through each and every step of the process, and fights for them when it comes to the negotiations.

As a leading real estate broker in Weston MA (http://www.teriadler.com/real-estate-weston-ma), this is one way that my real estate company differentiates ourselves from the rest of the competition. We truly care and our customers appreciate it. As a result, we get a tremendous amount of referrals and Word of Mouth.
