Buyer's Agents & Seller's Agents

What's the difference between buyer’s agents and seller’s agents? Can they be the same person or do I need my own agent?

Our East Bay real estate market doesn’t dilly-dally. Homes are open for one or two Sundays (and for private showings), and offers are usually the week after the last open house. There is much that goes on behind the scenes prior to a home coming on the market -- for both buyers and sellers.

With the guidance of their agent, sellers determine the best course to prepare their home for sale. This includes reviewing the sellers’ needs, sprucing up the inside and the outside, pricing analysis, and preparing disclosures.

Meanwhile, the buyer’s agent helps the buyers narrow their search, shows them many homes, educates them regarding market pricing and understanding disclosures, and develops a strategy for their clients’ offer. It is important to me the buyer has an informed offer because it usually takes your very best offer to "win" the property.

Buyers’ agents and sellers’ agents represent the best interests of their respective clients. At the time of the offer, the agents begin negotiations, and continue to negotiate on behalf of their client through the escrow process. I am proud to represent my clients with the highest ethical standards. I put great value in your trust and my fiduciary duty.
