Are Realtors All Dishonest?Joseph Talbot -- An Honest Realtor

I was doing some reading online today, about what some folks thought Realtors do for buyers, specifically.

One commenter said, “Realtors do nothing except collect a pay cheque”. I sure do wish this person was correct. I mean who doesn’t just like to get paid for doing nothing?

Another comment, by the same person, was, “Realtors are not honest”.  Unfortunately, that may be the case in some instances, but this could also be true if you were dealing with a lawyer, or a dentist, or your own boss. You’ll find dishonest people in every profession, but you’ll also find honest people too.


Ask Around – Honest Realtors Exist

That is why it’s a good idea to know who you are working with. The commenter also said that “every Realtor will always tell you it is a good time to buy”. That also may be the truth with regards to some Realtors. However, if you choose to work with me, you get 100% honesty. Nothing less. It sounds cliche, but I am an honest realtor.

I have a tendency to be a little too honest and have probably lost sales because of that. However, I sleep with a clear conscience.  If I feel it is a bad time for you personally to buy, I will tell you so.  I take into consideration all that you tell me and use my expertise to give you my professional opinion. That is why you hire me, right?

I may also tell you that the home you want to look at or have previewed is not right for you.  I’ll always tell you why, and back it up with the facts. It’s very important that you trust my professionalism and what I have to offer.


What Does Your Buyer Agent Do?

I do a lot for my buyer clients. I’ve met a number of buyers that have no idea what the process is, when buying a home, or even what to look for when considering a particular home.

  • Explain – There’s so much more than just spending a short period of time in a house and saying “Yep, I wanna buy this one”. Do you understand the contract and the agreement of purchase and sale? How about financing? There are a lot of different options.  Do you know how to think creatively outside the box to get the job done? I do!
  • Take Care of the Paperwork – How about the conditions, the amendments, the Notices, any waivers?
  • Deal with Issues as They Arise – What if you breach the contract to buy? What happens next? What if the home inspections reveal major issues? How do you deal with that?

As an Honest Realtor, I’m Here for You!

These are just a few things that I, as a buyer representative, do for you. I will explain the whole thing to you and walk you through the process with 100% integrity. I want you to be happy, and I hope that you’ll refer me to all your family, friends, coworkers, doctors, mechanics, and even your mother-in-law.

The only way you will find out if I am an honest Realtor is to work with me. I would be glad to provide you with a list of satisfied clients; happy references.
