Why A Realtor

Buying or selling your home can be a daunting task. With endless paperwork, and the constant pressure of trying to make the right decisions, the process can be overwhelming. REALTORS® are here to help!

A REALTOR® is so much more than just a real estate agent. A REALTOR® is actually someone who is certified by the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) and can be identified by the registered certification mark. This mark ensures that your real estate agent is a member of CREA, adheres to the strict REALTOR® Code of Ethics, can list on the MLS® service, and also ensures the quality of service you receive.

All Brantford Regional Real Estate Association members are certified REALTORS®. As a member of CREA, the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA), and the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO), BRREA is dedicated to providing our members and community the best in service and care.

A REALTOR® provides many services that are beneficial to the buying or selling of your home.

  • Professionalism – Along with adhering to the REALTOR® Code of Ethics, a REALTOR® understands the importance of this process to your life and livelihood. Clients are treated with care and respect, and support is always given where needed.
  • Resources – REALTORS® bring with them a plethora of resources for your real estate transaction. Along with providing the right contacts for services you may require (lawyers, home inspectors, etc), a REALTOR® has the inside knowledge of the real estate industry and can work it to your advantage.
  • Knowledge – Based on industry information, market trends, and knowledge of the area, a REALTOR® can help you determine the price of your home, whether or not a home is overpriced, the right time to sell, and much more! A REALTOR® is your expert in any real estate transaction.
  • Experience – Every REALTOR® brings their years of experience and skills to your real estate transaction. One of the most valuable skills they can bring to your transaction is the ability to negotiate. They can negotiate the inclusion of extras into your purchase, such as appliances, and even help you close the deal effectively and profitably.
  • Marketing – A REALTOR® knows where, when and how to effectively advertise in the real estate industry. With new technologies emerging all the time, they can give you the advantage you need to sell your home quickly.
  • Objective – Buying or selling your home can be a deeply personal transaction. Sometimes this can cloud judgment or effect the decision-making process. A REALTOR® can provide an objective third-party voice needed to make your real estate transaction successful.
