Establishing Trust

Working with a Real Estate Team when you are buying a home  whether its your first or the next - your relationship with your realty team leader should not be an adversarial relationship. Trust between you, the Client, and your service team leader  your Realtor  should be the first aspect of the relationship to be established. Yet that often seems to be the most difficult and elusive part of the relationship to establish.

For the Client, this as an unusual, often daunting process, fraught with shifting emotions and financial ambiguities. Since most Clients only buy or sell one or two homes in their lifetime, and usually years apart becoming comfortable, no less schooled in the current market conditions, financial and credit requirements, home valuations, location concerns and so many more items on an ever-growing and increasingly complex check-list of dos, donts musts and must nots, means you must find a professional to educate and guide you. .. a professional you can rely on and trust.

For the Realtor this is their businessand in order for your Realtor and their Team to be successful in helping you achieve your goals and dreams, he or she not only needs to provide you with all the education, resources and a team of experts to support your needs, they also need to help you become comfortable in revealing both what you think and feel about the process and the outcomes you are experiencing. And that takes trust.

To start with, education and patience is key. Your Realtor has to provide you, not just with a list of homes to go and see, but with a step by step process and plan for helping you determine what price, style, condition, location and dozens of other large and small criteria options are needed to create a picture of the home that will truly fit your home-buying needs.

Very important from the start is your Realtors ability to help you establish your unique criteria using such programs as a HomeHunter ® service to help you begin framing your wants, needs and goals.
