Finding the Right Main Line Real Estate Agent- Sage Advantage (Why Sage?)

People searching for help with Main Line Real Estate have a ton of choices when it comes to selecting an agent to help them. Should it be a REALTOR®? A broker? An agent with the largest company? A specialist in buyers? The one with the most recent sign on your street? One working with luxury homes? And what do those things mean, really? How can someone make the choice that is right for them? Sage has some suggestions for Main Line home buyers and sellers.

A. Forget about specialized “designations” – Find the agent that you trust the most to explain the process and do right by you.

Main Line Real Estate Agent

Research an agent like you would a financial planner or a doctor. Read reviews, contact references, meet in person and ask hard questions. Remember, this person is helping you with what is likely one of the top financial decisions of your life. Sage is made up of Main Line Real Estate agents that put the clients’ needs first—ahead of friendships with the agents in the same office, ahead of the house with the highest commission, ahead of the “deal.” If we think the house is not right for you, we will tell you that and move on to a better one. If we think you are pricing your home for sale in a way that will hurt you in the long run, we will tell you that too.

At Sage, we have specialized training as well—we are attorneys and architects and have taken classes on buyer representation, seniors and luxury homes. But the trust factor is the most important thing of all.

B. Get a contractual obligation – Sign a contract that says the agent will haveMain Line Real Estate Agent a fiduciary duty to YOU. You may have to agree to use them exclusively for some period of time. At Sage, we ask that you use us and no one else, but only as long as you want. Unhappy? Terminate the contract. Few, if any, companies make that offer. But we treat your deal as if it were our own—that is what “fiduciary” means. At Sage, we commit to do our best for you.
C. Beware the “market share” speech – Agents who tell you their company has most of the listings in the area or they have sold umpteen million dollars of Main Line Real Estate are describing things that are very likely not in your best interest. Sage can help you buy just about every home listed no matter who the company is that lists it. And our agents can help you sell to all the buyers out there who are in your market because practically 100% of Main Line Real Estate is offered through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). We can all sell or buy any house. And we are not co-workers of the agents who will be on the other side, so we can fight tough for you.

Remember: A company who has a lot of listings might steer you to theirs and an agent who lists all the homes in your area is not necessarily doing a bang up job for every seller.
