Buying Real Estate in Charlottetown PEI?Michael is your Charlottetown PEI Real Estate expert with almost 20 years experience.
What is a Buyer Agent?
You’re driving through Prince Edward Island or surfing the Internet when you see an incredible home for sale. Eager to look inside, you call the real estate agent on the sign or listed on the web…WAIT. The real estate agent affiliated with the listing is working for the seller. Whenever real estate agents list a property, they pledge confidentiality and loyalty to the seller. Although they are ethically bound to deal honestly and fairly with you, it’s their job to act on seller’s best interests… not yours. Even if they don’t advertise the fact, most real estate agents work for sellers; representing the seller’s interest, not yours; and negotiating real estate sales with advantageous terms for sellers. If you want to buy real estate in PEI, Canada, how can you be sure your real estate agent is acting with your best interests in mind?
Let us introduce you to The Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®)…
Benefits of Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®)
1. 100% Allegiance.
ABR®’s, who work solely for buyers, have 100% allegiance and dedication to you, the buyer, from the onset of the relationship through the closing. It’s our mission to represent the best interests of the buyer, which means we are exclusively focused on you, the buyer, from initial search and evaluation of properties to your closing on your dream home or investment. Accredited Buyer’s Representatives (ABR®), also referred to as Buyer Representatives or Buyer Brokers are consumer advocates who always represent the best interests of the buyer in Prince Edward Island Real Estate. As Exclusive Buyer Agents for PEI Real Estate, we’re on your side 100%, every step of the way. Read why experts agree that Buyers Agents are the best choice!
2. Free and Specialized Service.
ABRs, who represent only 1% of all real estate agents nationwide, are true specialists in the buying process, and in Prince Edward Island, our service is free to buyers. In the past, all real estate agents represented sellers, and home buyers had to fend for themselves. Today, some real estate agents, such as Michael Poczynek (ABR®) at Century 21 Northumberland Realty, have offered a service to advocate solely for buyers, giving buyers a chance to have their own professional and highly skilled representation. Michael Poczynek is the only ABR® credentialed agent in PEI. Michael also has the prestigious CNE® (Certified Negotiating Expert) and MCNE® designations (Master Certified Negotiating Expert).
3. No Conflict of Interest.
ABRs, who never work with sellers, never have a conflict of interest between you and a seller. When you work with traditional real estate agents, you run the risk that they might also be representing the seller, leading to conflict of interest which most likely won’t benefit you, the buyer. Meanwhile, Michael spends his days focused exclusively on the needs, objectives, and issues of buyers.
4. Searches Tailored to You.
ABRs, will show you any listing from any seller with complete candor – including MLS listings from any company any broker, For Sale by Owner, REO / bank-owned, and foreclosures. While traditional agents might be tempted to steer you toward a specific home or listing that belongs to one of their sellers or company, we never face that conundrum, and only show you properties that are ideal for you. Since we are constantly reviewing all the real estate listings available (from companies, individuals and organizations), we know the real estate market better than most.
5. Candid Property Evaluations.
ABRs, who assist buyers in property evaluations, can be completely candid about any property, making it their job to point out negatives as well as positives to help you make a fully informed decision. When we take pictures or produce a video of a property to show you, we don’t Photoshop them for you. We want you to see the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of every property — so you won’t have any surprises later.
6. Buyer Negotiation.
ABRs, who only represent the buyer’s side in real estate transactions, are especially trained and skilled in negotiating the best contract, terms and price for you, the buyer. As a Prince Edward Island Buyers Agent, I always work to get the best price and terms for you, the buyer, not for the seller. This may not be true of traditional agents who represent both buyers and sellers.
7. Highest Quality Service.
Perhaps most importantly, ABRs give today’s home buying consumers the high quality of service, advocacy, and information that you truly deserve. Read more below about our services here at Century 21 Northumberland Realty.
