“I like to do things my own way so I don’t need a broker. I have bought and sold 5 houses so I can do it on my own. I know how to negotiate. I will get a better deal without a broker. I’m in (name your profession) so I know how to do this.”...


“I like to do things my own way so I don’t need a broker. I have bought and sold 5 houses so I can do it on my own. I know how to negotiate. I will get a better deal without a broker. I’m in (name your profession) so I know how to do this.” These are some of the phrases we have heard about why people don’t want to work with us but today we are talking about why you should work with us and why these phrases and others sorta make us laugh. It’s a falsehood to think that a broker always wants the full commission for themselves, therefore putting you, an unrepresented buyer at the head of the pack. In a hot market, a busy broker needs to know that when an offer is accepted, the buyer will be qualified and the deal will close. It is the rule, not the exception that a broker would prefer to transact agent to agent. You might think you have an edge showing up unrepresentative but what could really be happening is that you sabotage any chance you may have in buying the property of your dreams.
