Types of Agents
There are basically 4 types of Professional Agents that can assist
you with your new home purchase. Buyers Agents, Sellers Agents,
Relocation Specialists, and those that do it all.
Buyers Agents-Buyers agents work exclusively with
buyers purchasing homes. Without the added stresses and time commitments
of listing agents, these professionals devote all of their time
to getting the best for their clients, the buyer. Statistically
exclusive buyer agents pay less for homes because they are negotiating
against the selling agent.
Sellers Agents- Exclusive Sellers Agents
only list property. This is the professional whose job it is to
sell your home and sell it fast. They usually work with a handful
of advertising companies to show your house in print and on the
web. These professionals are specialists at selling homes.
Relocations Specialists-Buyers agents
with a twist for out of town moves. This is the Professional whose
job it is to relocate your group or family as smoothly as possible.

task of moving as smooth as possible.
