Why we ask you to use who we recommend…
As a real estate professional, we have many resources we can turn to. A lot of times these resources are individuals. They might be a loan professional we have used, a general contractor we know, or a title company we have a relationship with. Part of the reasoning for recommending these companies or people is simply because we like them and trust them. On the flip side, there is a huge benefit to you as our customer.
Our first and most important priority is to our clients and to the transaction. We would never ask you to use someone that didn’t provide superior results. Why would we? Then you would never want to buy a house from us again. Why would we want to put the transaction at risk? Our clients at risk? Our reputation at risk? It just doesn’t make sense.
Now, if a client wants to use someone THEY like and trust, that usually isn’t such a big deal. We understand you might know people that you trust and want to use. That is fine. The issue comes in when we, as the real estate professional, can’t guarantee a timely or correct performance from someone we have never worked with. This can be an issue. If this someone you wanted to use doesn’t return phone calls, or follow a certain way of doing things, this can cause untimely delays or issues. Ultimately, this would jeopardize the transaction and the purchase. Possibly even to the point where it couldn’t be fixed. This isn’t what you want is it?
If the other agent wants an update and we know how the process works with a crucial person or company because we have worked with them before, it is going to make the transaction that much smoother. Smoother is always better. The real estate transaction is an uneasy balance at all times. You don’t want to do anything to rock the boat. One too many side to side leans and the boat just might tip over.
