Why Should You Use a Buyer’s Specialist?

Buyer’s Specialist versus Listing Agent – what’s the difference? 

In a real estate transaction, a buyer’s specialist is a real estate agent who represents the buyer, whereas a listing agent represents the seller.

As a buyer you might ask yourself, “Why hire someone to represent me? Can’t I just speak to listing agents at each property I visit?” While this is certainly true, it is often an unwise choice. Alex Cortez, a Realtor with Wailea Village Properties in Kihei, HI, had this to say on the subject: 

“It’s in your best interest as a buyer to get an agent who is there to represent you. Think about it this way: If you were getting sued, would you hire the same attorney as the person suing you? Of course not. You need someone who will diligently fight for your interests and rights.”

At Hamilton & Company, our Buyer’s Specialists are not only prepared to represent you well, but they are also willing to go the extra mile to ensure a smooth transition.
