Working With a Broker

Given the amount of money involved and the complexity of the transaction, the sale or purchase of a property deserves careful planning and ongoing support. The road that leads to the sale or purchase of a home may include obstacles along the way and stressful situations (legal documents, negotiations, multiple offers, etc.), but the presence of a real estate broker provides you with an objective ally on your team – someone who has your best interests at heart. Doing business with a broker means significantly boosting your chances of completing your transaction successfully, while enjoying unparalleled security and peace of mind.

Selling with a broker

With state-of-the-art tools and industry-leading knowledge in your geographic area, a real estate broker is able to get a fair price for your property. In addition, your property will benefit from unparalleled visibility by being posted to Quebec’s 13,000 brokers (and their thousands of buying clients), as well as on Centris.ca, the most visited real estate website in Quebec. You also benefit from the support of your broker, as they will accompany you through all of the stages of the transaction, from the initial marketing of your home to finalizing the sale at the notary.

Buying with a broker

Thanks to their experience and expertise, your real estate broker will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of each property you visit and will ensure that you pay fair market value for your new home. They negotiate in your best interests and – thanks to their vast network of contacts – they can guide you to competent professionals such as mortgage lenders, qualified building inspectors, notaries, etc. Your broker also lets you take advantage of all the protections offered by the Real Estate Brokerage Act. So why would you buy a home without the help of a broker?

Why use a real estate broker?

A real estate transaction is a complex, delicate process which requires a thorough knowledge of the real estate market. In addition to managing all the commercial, financial and legal details, you must be able to negotiate effectively. Real estate brokers who are members of a real estate board are experts in the field!

Not only will you successfully navigate every step of your transaction thanks to their services, but you will also benefit from the legal protections set out in the Real Estate Brokerage Act.

Here is why you should use the services of a real estate broker.
