The Real Estate Broker’s Responsibilities
A real estate broker essentially assumes the role of advisor, market expert, intermediary and negotiator. As advisors, real estate brokers have recognized training and know the laws and regulations that govern housing and real estate transactions. They guide you in obtaining a mortgage and help you meet the competent specialists you may need. Your broker listens to you, understands your needs and makes informed recommendations in the decisions that need to be made throughout the entire transaction.
Brokers are market experts. They have access to exclusive search tools that allow them to propose properties that meet your needs, they promote your property for sale through their various promotional platforms, and they ensure that potential buyers are qualified.
As intermediaries, real estate brokers establish and facilitate communication between all of the people involved in the transaction.
Brokers are expert negotiators; they know how to conclude a transaction to their client’s benefit, whether they are buying or selling a home.
