Buyer Brokerage Relationships in Georgia
Do you want to be a Client or a Customer?
Realtors are licensed professionals trained to help consumers buy, sell, or lease real property.
The Business relationship between Realtor®/Broker and consumer can take many forms. Buyers are either Clients or Customers. Clients are entitled to a higher level of service than customers.
If you are a CLIENT, your agent owes you Honesty, Confidentially, Obedience, and Loyalty!
- Pay full attention to your needs
- Tell you all that they know about the seller
- Keep information about you confidential
- Focus on choices that satisfy your needs
- Provide material facts as well as professional advice
- Provide price counseling based on comparable properties and their professional insights
- Protect and guide you
- Negotiate on your behalf
- Attempt to solve problems to your advantage and satisfaction
If you are a CUSTOMER, an agent owes you Honesty!
- Provide just the material facts
- Give no advice
As a Buyer you deserve representation. The Agent listing the house has a contract to represent the Seller. They can show you the house and write up an offer but they are representing the Seller, not the Buyer. If you want representation as a Buyer you should select a Realtor® to represent YOU. A Realtor® can show you property from any Agency.
Realtors® are independent contractors. You can use another Realtor® in the same Agency; one person represents the Seller and the other represents the Buyer. Dual Agency is when the same Realtor® represents both parties, I do not do this. I will represent you as a Buyer if another Realtor® is the listing agent at Watson Realty Corp, private information is kept separate. I am here to represent YOU.

If you already have a Realtor, stick with them. Jumping from agent to agent does not give you the best results. You will form a relationship with your Realtor and work together to find your new home. You only need ONE Realtor and I may be the ONE for YOU.
