Why should you use a REALTOR®?
When the time comes to sell your beloved home, you may think of entrusting a REALTOR® with your most valuable possession. This happens to be one of, if not, the largest transaction of your life. REALTORS® take this responsibility very seriously. Here's what we promise you:
Your REALTOR® is a trained professional
REALTORS® take extensive pre-licensing courses in order to obtain the most recent credentials for practicing in Real Estate.
Your REALTOR® is continuously trained
REALTORS®, being the highly trained professionals they are, must keep pace with the ever changing laws and regulations revolving around Real Estate. They must take continuing education courses to upgrade their knowledge on a broad range of Real Estate related issues in order to be able to continue to advise consumers on their Real Estate matters.
Your REALTOR® does everything by the book
A REALTOR® must be registered under provincial laws that govern exactly how Real Estate can and cannot be traded. These regulations are your legal guarantee of professional conduct.
Your REALTOR® is an ethical businessperson
REALTORS® must adhere to the extensive Code of Ethics of the Canadian Real Estate Association and their local Boards. Simply put, your best interests must always be put first.
Opportunity for recourse
Should you have concerns about the professional behavior of a REALTOR®, provincial regulators and your local real estate board or association take these matters very seriously and work quickly to resolve any issues.
Your REALTOR® has access to a local Board's MLS® System
A Board's MLS® system is the single most powerful tool for buying and selling a home. Your REALTOR® has access and can provide you with exclusive features of the Board's MLS® System. Among the many features, one of the most important ones includes the feature of immediate notification when new properties are listed as-per your requested search criteria. You don't have to wait for it to be posted on a web site!
