Why would I want a Buyer’s Agent? Great question. And, it all depends on what kind of experience you want.
Let’s say you are going into a National Park with breathtaking views and some real danger. Do you want a map to just explore on your own? OR would you rather hire an experienced personal guide to help you avoid the crowds and make the most enjoyable use of your time? After all, you are only going to make this “home buying” journey once every 7 – 10 years on average. Let’s get it right the first time!
Our business model is set up to serve those who want the best experience possible. We believe this mindset is also what has caused GPS technology to far surpass the experience paper maps can provide. Turn by turn directions and wrong turn recovery abilities make trips with GPS guidance a far superior experience! Just sit back and enjoy the ride. That is our philosophy.
One rule that applies to all professions: You simply don’t know what you don’t know. It is hard to seek out a picturesque waterfall if you do not know it exists.

So, what is an Exclusive Buyer Agency Agreement?
It is simply a written agreement whereby we agree to invest time with you to find a property for you to buy and you agree to make sure we get paid by working exclusively with us. The reality is that NO piece of paper is strong enough to make someone be loyal. It may cause someone to keep their word though. Our goal is to be on the same page as our clients – not to lock someone into a relationship they do not want to be in. Our expertise is hard-fought and our experience is expensive. We bust our tail to make sure our clients get what they want and are well coached along the way. Agents can also play several different roles in real estate sales. The category for these roles are called “agency”. Here is a link to the various types of real estate agency in Georgia.
How long is an Exclusive Buyer Agency (or Brokerage) Agreement for?
Generally around 90 days. It really depends on you and your goals. Our goal is to make it long enough so that we can focus on finding the right property without having to keep renewing the agreement to stay in compliance with the law. Ultimately, YOU are in control over how long it takes you to buy your new home.
Who pays the real estate commission?
Our Exclusive Buyer Agency Agreements state that the Seller pays the commission. There is no obligation on you to pay any portion of our commission.
