Our obligation is 3 fold........we have a legal obligation to creatively market our listings. We are allowed to puff it up a little, but not lie. A good broker loves the house like his own. Our obligation to the buyer is to treat them like a brother..........truthfuly tell the facts with out emotions to sway their opinion. We are obligated to point out obvious defects, encourage them to hire inspectors and seek family/friends imput. Lastly, a broker that will last through the tough times will we a source of honest and reliable information and not focus on the bottom line....his commission. He has to build an integrity in his office and his community. Not all brokers will live up to these values.....and it also the the buyers/seller's responsibility to search the market for a broker that will a broker to fit your needs. Being a good home buyer means you too have a lot of homework to do.........keep looking.........you will find a broker of solid character..........Debbie

I was going to answer you, but I'm too busy counting my money while watching my 52 inch plasma TV in my mink.

Question 1) First, you do not mention what area you are trying to buy in... Question 2) Most real estate brokers are working their butts off to sell properties 3) Maybe the person you are working with is not a good choice.........

This is a tough market... you need to stay calm -- as a buyer there are many options out there......

If you are looking in the Westchester area I can help -- I only do listings for the immediate area and have a select group of customers.

Yes, because if some buyer bite the bullet and agrees to pay a price for a house, not knowing that it was overpriced, then the broker makes a lot of money by not being realistic. Does it ring any bell, Debbie?

Buyers are more likely to overpay for FSBOs.

I thought this was a place where consumers respectfully asked real estate professionals for their help. I guess I was wrong about that. My bad.

Guess this means that all the time I spend getting my SHS (Stupid House Specialist) designation was wasted. Sigh.
