Working with a broker
A real estate transaction is a complex and detail-oriented process that requires a thorough knowledge of the real estate market. It also requires the ability to manage the commercial, financial and legal aspects of a transaction, and the capacity to negotiate effectively. Real estate brokers are experts in these areas. Their services ensure that you successfully complete all of the steps involved in a transaction, in addition to guaranteeing you the legal protections provided by the Real Estate Brokerage Act.
