1. Trained and Experienced Professional
REALTORS® must complete a series of extensive pre-licensing courses in order to obtain the necessary credentials for practicing real estate. All REALTORS® are also expected to continually upgrade their knowledge on a broad range of real estate related issues to ensure that they are able to provide clients with up-to-date advice.
2. Negotiation Skills and Confidentiality
The best REALTORS® are able to remove themselves from the emotional aspects of the transaction in order to negotiate on your behalf. All professional REALTORS® are specifically trained to present their client’s case in the best light possible, as well as to withhold confidential information from competing interests.
3. Ethical Business Practices
All REALTORS® working in the Langley area must adhere to the extensive Code of Ethics of the Canadian Real Estate Association, as well as the additional code of ethics set by the province. REALTORS® also need to be registered under provincial laws that govern how real estate can and cannot be traded.
4. Neighbourhood Knowledge
Using a local REALTOR® means they will possess intimate knowledge of the area and have industry knowledge about your particular neighbourhood. A good REALTOR® will be able to identify and provide you with information about comparable sales, as well as schools, demographics, and crime in the area.
5. Professional Networking
REALTORS® often network with other professionals, many of whom provide services that you will need to buy or sell a home. While a REALTOR® may not necessarily recommend a certain individual or company over another, they will know which vendors have a good reputation for efficiency, competency, and competitive pricing.
