Real Estate Agency for this Pullman Washington Realtor®

Lori Cofer Realtor® Pullman WA Our real estate market in Pullman Washington is picking up activity more and more.  I know yesterday was a bit hectic with a mutually accepted offer to get to title, a luncheon, a walk through with a buyer who is getting ready to close shortly, and two new buyers back to back to look at homes.  Regardless of how hectic it is I always give each client I have my very best and full attention.  Why?  Well there are lots of reasons, including my dedication to provide the best service I possibly can.   But the first and fundamental reason is I am in THEIR  AGENT.  

What exactly is an agent?  An agent is who is  empowered to act for or represent another.  To represent that client, I need to give them my best.  It isn't always an easy task as we have many clients....but when we are with that client they are the ones we are working with. For example, I do not answer my phone unless it relates to that clients needs.  But they also know I return my calls as soon as I can.  I treat each of my clients according to the golden rule.

 

My clients know about agency up front.  We take the time to discuss just what real estate agency is according to the Law in Washington State on our first meeting together.    They understand my personal decision not to practice dual agency. I work for my buyers only with the only exception being if they are interested in one of my listings.  As the seller has already hired me, I am happy to show them the home but if they should be interested in that home I provide several agents that I feel will take excellent care of them to assist them through the negotiation process to close.   And most greatly appreciate that and respect that.

 

And I find that they build a level of trust with me as a result that better enables me to do a better job for them.  They understand my motives are to help THEM.  After all I am THEIR agent.  My heart is with them and I find as a result, their heart is with me   And for that I am truly appreciative.  I have some of the very best clients there are here in Pullman.  And I am thankful that many of them chose to stay in touch as I miss them once they get settled into their new homes.  Thank goodness for facebook!
