Advantages of Sage Realty, Exclusive Buyers Agents

Our History as Exclusive Buyers Agents

EXCLUSIVELY FOR BUYERS
Sage operates beyond the typical buyer agency rules of:

  • confidentiality and
  • full disclosure

For many years, we practiced an obscure form of agency, wherein we were known as exclusive buyers agents. Sage only represented buyers and developed practices, procedures, forms and attitudes tailored just for buyers and their special issues. Recently, we moved to a more recognized agency called simply buyer’s agency, for our buyer clients, because we decided to accept listings under certain circumstances.
Sage is committed to showing buyers all available homes, pointing out their features (good and bad), providing financing advice and submitting offers in the best light for the buyer. And we still do that for our buyers.

Why this is Good for You

NO DUAL AGENCY

Many companies whose agents are permitted to practice what is called “dual agency” tell you there is no problem with their agents being on both sides of the transaction. Except that the duties of full disclosure and confidentiality are in direct conflict. Which one do they choose? Do they tell the seller that you need to move by year-end? Won’t that affect the price?

TRUE CONFLICT – FREE REPRESENTATION

If you sign up with a large company, the house you go to see may be listed with one of their agents. A friend of your agent, perhaps. Or maybe the listing agent also may want to represent you. This is very likely not a benefit for you. A recent survey found that most home buyers felt this was a potential conflict of interest and might hurt them. We know that can happen – we have seen it. Don’t let it happen to you. Call Sage for conflict-free help. We never let our agents work on both sides, so your buyers agent works exclusively for you.

What Else We Do For You

All buyers receive top quality service from skilled Realtors® (and Sage is managed by a trained real estate attorney) and specialists in representing buyers.

This means:

  • Absolute confidentiality and conflict-free advice
  • Home search techniques of the highest caliber – on par or exceeding those of the national companies
  • Full disclosure of our compensation for each property
  • Your right to terminate the contract at ANY TIME
  • Personal, attentive service emphasizing YOUR interests above everything else
  • Clear and honest explanations of the entire process
  • Experienced and skilled negotiation techniques during the offer and acceptance phase and
  • Careful attention to the details up until, through and after the closing

NO COST

Think of the buyer’s agent as the only real estate professional who is required to treat your deal as if it were his or her own exclusive purchase. And it usually costs you no more than if you used the listing agent – they just share the same commission amount from the seller.

What If You Have A Home To Sell

If you have a home to sell, we are there for you with special protections against conflicts.

How We Can Save You Money

We can get you the best deal because we know how to submit an offer for a home that is attractive to the seller and at the same time meets your needs. With Sage, you will be sure that the price we recommend as your offer is high enough to get you the house but not so high that you are overpaying.

How We Get Paid

NO MINIMAL FEE OR COMMISSION RATE
We do not charge you a fee. We will show you any lot or home no matter how low the commission to us. We will always tell you the commission offered to the buyer’s agent.

How We Make It Fun

Most people dread the home buying process. We make it fun because we take away the mystery and the confusion. By the time you’re ready to buy, you’ll feel like an expert.

Want an Exclusive Buyers Agent?

While we do offer our services to sellers as well as buyers, Sage offers each client exclusive attention and advantage. Buyers never have to worry that we will prioritize anything above their best interests.

 

What Our Clients Think

“Linda was great. Professional, attentive, enormously patient, and, as a first time home buyer, she taught me more about real estate than I ever imagined I would know. Also, and more important to me, there was no hidden agenda – as a buyers broker she was never directing me towards one property over another for her own personal gain (dual brokers are obnoxiously notorious for this in an effort to double their commissions) in fact it was the opposite – she’d often take me to properties where the buying agent commissions were lower than the industry standard. And she’s a real estate lawyer to boot which came in very handy.”
