We got an email from one of our buyers saying he wanted to see a house at this address this weekend. We searched the address on MLS...the house was not for sale..and there was nothing close to that address on the market.
Thinking there was some address confusion we called the Buyer...he found on the "Z" site....it is a "For Sale By Owner" listing. We have a Buyer Agency contract with the Buyer....and called the Seller. The Seller was happy to honor our contract and commission. They were not working with an attorney and didn't know that the Seller pays for the title and transfer tax....we told them we could suggest a lawyer if they wished and have a title company that we use regularly that would be happy to help them.
The conversation with an appointment to see their home and the Sellers feeling that Real Estate agents really weren't "the Bad Guys" but professionals that were there to assist both parties in different ways to accomplish their goal of buying and selling.
We'll see if this is our Buyer's dream house...If not...we scored one for "professinalism" with a Seller....and that too is important to us, and to the integrity of the real estate profession.
If you or anyone you know is looking for Realtors with integrity who get the job done....Call the Hansons...we are honored to be of service.
