Real Estate "AGENCY" in MI

When Searching for Property for sale, Buyers MUST UNDERSTAND the nature of Real Esate"Agency" in the State of Michigan.

Not unlike attorney/client or doctor/patient relationships, real estate agency goes above and beyond "friendship," "family," or even "customer" relations. Counsel, Representation, and Confidentiality are the Big Three Responsibilities We undertake by signing you on as our Clients.

All Agents are duty-bound to fulfill Three Fundamental Responsibilities to Their Clents.

They are:

1. Agents are to PLACE THE INTERESTS OF THE CLIENT FIRST.

Your Best Interests Come First. All of the Realtors actions must hold up to this basic and important 'litmus' test. We are working for you.

2. Agents are to SHARE WITH THEIR CLIENTS ALL INFORMATION THAT CAN BE GLEANED THAT IS TO THE CLIENTS' ADVANTAGE.

Any information that We can find that is to your advantage, we must share with you in a timely manner. TEAM MIKE can glean a LOT of information - it's our specialty!

3. Agents are to MAINTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY IN PERPETUITY.

Any Confidential Information that you share with your Agents is kept confidential, in perpetuity. We are working for you, always.

Remember, until you have committed to a Realtor (which is FREE), they are not bound to Your Best Interests as they CAN and SHOULD BE.

8 Big Time Buyer Mistakes

Until you enter into a Buyer-Broker Contract with a licensed Realtor, and he or she is your Agent, Realtors are usually required to work on behalf of any Seller whom has property listed. In order to list property, Sellers must also understand the nature of Agency and enter in to a contract with the real estate Broker who holds the listing.

The beautiful thing is, in order to gain the fiduciary advantages of hiring a licensed real estate agent to represent you as a Buyer, DOES NOT COST YOU A DIME.

You want a Realtor working for you!
