Colorado Springs Realtor - Cherise's Blog: March 2011

I’ve Got You Now - You're Not Going Anywhere!

handcuffs

 Laughter resounds through the room as the handcuffs come out of the drawer while I pull up the buyer agency agreement. Sometimes the road to building loyalty and trust is paved out of a little bit of humor. I’ll try to keep it PG-13. You see, it seems like I’ve read many blogs lately in which there have been several instances of buyer disloyalty toward his or her Realtor®. In Colorado, a Buyer Agency relationship is the “hiring” document to employ the Realtor to negotiate on the Buyer’s behalf.

Nonetheless, it’s common for relocation clients to try to “shop” a few Colorado Springs CO Realtors before making a commitment with one individual agent through the Buyer Agency Agreement. That’s where the handcuffs come in handy.

I have no problem sitting down with a buyer to acquaint him or her to Colorado Springs Real Estate. In fact, after an extensive in-office consultation, I’ll even show a few sample properties with no “hand-tied” commitment. I believe in earning trust before enforcing a commitment, and I do think that the interview process between a buyer and Realtor® needs to be mutual. It has to be a good fit for both parties in order for the relationship to thrive.

But hang on … at that second meeting, out come the handcuffs to ensure that we have secured our relationship through the Buyer Agency Agreement.

All kidding aside, before I fully invest my time into providing the utmost service (QSC – Platinum Certified), it is my typical policy to have a signed Buyer Agency Agreement before moving onward in the buying process of Colorado Springs Real Estate with my clients.

So, the short of it is that I put the handcuffs back into the drawer. I’ve discovered that there’s actually FREEDOM not bondage in creating a strong foundational relationship with the buyer. They are happy when they know that they have a real estate expert on their side fighting on their behalf. I suppose the handcuffs will have to come back out to make Gordon write another blog for me!
