To find the right agent, we utilize several networks including the prestigious CRS® Directory (The "Ph.D of Real Estate"). Also used are the long-established national and regional franchise & realtor office groups. If necessary, we dig to find the small "boutique" specialty agents. In short, we find the right agent regardless of company affiliation.
CRS Description >
Very good question! Unlike attorneys, REALTORS® are accustomed to sending & receiving referrals and sharing the fee. You will not pay any more for the services of the agent we locate than you would pay by going to the agent directly. On extremely rare occasions, exceptions might occur if your agent requires a retainer or extra marketing fees for a "Mega-Mansion" or other special properties. You will never be responsible for paying any agent a fee unless you’re willing to sign a contract to that effect.
We will work with you both to determine if the problem can be solved to the satisfaction of all parties. If your expectations can't be met, we will offer to locate another real estate agent who may better serve your needs.
Virtually every real estate agent in the country can, and many do, offer this service. What makes .Americasfinehomes. different? "National Real Estate Referrals" is our specialty!
