In several areas of the world, licensed real estate agents are not many, but, sometimes we have some that are not quite useful. When we say the are just in motion means they are unable to help sellers or buyers to arrive at a mutual, satisfying and considerate business decision because they do not take their roles, duties and responsibilites seriously. Even if most customers and clients have diverse goals, needs and priorities, there are some expectations that a right real estate agent must know and they are that they have the legal and ethical role of doing the right thing at all times and not doing only what they think is expedient and easy. With all these factors constant, keep reading this article as we consider, review, discuss and examine some roles of real estate agents and facts behind why clients and customers should be entitled to good, relevant, responsive, responsible service.
One top trait that good real estate agents should have is fiduciary. On a moral and ethical ground and according to the code of ethics for many realtor companies and several real estate laws have informed their real estate agents that they owe a fiduciary responsibility to their customers. It means they must protect the privacy of their client and not disclose personal information, reasons, a prospective client details which might not sit well with the homeowner. However sometimes there’s a fine line of doing this, and this is the rightful responsibility of revealing things that should be considered or material issues etc. Some of these comprise of material deficiencies or concerns that are known to have an impact on the values. Ethically being protective of the needs of the client comprises of non-disclosure of the financial information of the seller, the schedule of the client in case it is related to needs.
Integrity is also another quality and here real estate agents should show an obvious commitment to keep total integrity despite being tempted to use shortcuts. Service-oriented is a trait that professional real estate agents must-have.
The responsive trait is shown when a real estate agent is able to convey a message, answer questions and concerns from potential customers and also know how to separate responsible and responsive real estate agents from many others. The real estate agent you select must get feedback and develop ideas and recommendations.
Before contract any real estate agent to market, represent and sell a home for you, you should first interview many of them and pick the one you feel will adequately meet your needs, goals and priorities.
