Attentive Representation for Buyers


Platinum Club

I am a top producing Annapolis Valley REALTOR®. In 2016, I completed 91 successful transaction ends1 and listed 104 properties for sale.2  I hold a Managing Associate Broker license, and maintain the credentials associated with being a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®). I am a member of the RE/MAX Platinum Club.3 and in 2016 was recognized as one of the top 10 RE/MAX agents in Atlantic Canada. Time and time again, buyers reap the benefits of my experience, drive and professionalism.

 

Beginning Your Search


Buying real estate is more than just looking at properties and picking one that works. It's also about finding the right home, at the right price, in the right location - with a minimum amount of time and inconvenience; not always an easy task! The best way to achieve these objectives is to work with a professional REALTOR® who understands your needs, wants, time frame and budget; but most importantly, knows how to negotiate on your behalf to achieve the best possible outcome.

I worked closely with RE/MAX Banner Real Estate to build ValleyListings.ca, an innovative new website desiged specifically to assist buyers in their search for Real Estate in the Annapolis Valley. Much like REALTOR.ca, we provide access to every property that is listed for sale on the Annapolis Valley Real Estate Board MLS® system.

 

The Importance of a Buyer's Representative


HomeInHands

A Buyer's Sales Associate is a REALTOR® who works exclusively for you to assist in researching and purchasing a property. This exclusivity distinguishes a Buyer's Representative from the Seller's Representative (aka the Listing Agent) who is the legal representative of the seller and working in the seller's best interests. Before calling the number on the sign, consider retaining your own representation. It usually won't cost you anything! (In most cases, buyers' agents are reimbursed by the seller.)

 

Top Reasons to get a Buyer's Representative


  • Obtain invaluable details about the properties you're looking at: historic sales data, comparable properties, a second opinion of value, and potentially other information about the property that the seller's representative can't legally provide.
  • An exclusive buyer's agent can negotiate on your behalf and suggest what to offer based on experience (the seller's representative cannot do this - they must work in the seller's best interests).
  • A buyer's agent can help you find foreclosures, exclusive listings, expired listings and other properties that may not be listed for sale on the open market.
  • Discretion, confidentiality, loyalty, and obedience: the pillars of solid representation.
  • The services of a Buyer's representative could save you thousands of dollars!
