Step 2: Choosing an Agent


Buying a home is personal and emotional. So the relationship with your real estate agent has to be built on expertise, trust and mutual respect. After all, they will be acting as your eyes, ears and voice throughout the process. They have a fiduciary duty to act in your best interests, to be completely transparent and accountable to you.

Here’s what a Royal LePage agent will do:

Educate you about the current market conditions

Discuss and analyze your wants and needs against your budget

Guide you to homes that fit your criteria

Coordinate the work of other professionals you’ll need during the process

Negotiate with the seller on your behalf

Make sure all the required paperwork is fully completed, accurate and that deadlines are met
