How does Vendor Advocacy work?
One of the most common questions Vendors ask is how much extra does it cost to have an Advocate.
The answer is there is no extra cost, not one extra cent. We share the commission paid to the agent just in the same way agents work together or when one agent refers a listing to another.
In other words, for introducing the sale to the agent, they share the commission. In return, I act as your independent voice to make sure your interests are properly looked after.
How do you know which Agent is right?
Selecting a real estate agent can be a daunting experience. The interview is not about you, it is all about the agent, it is their show time. The problem is if you have not been through this process before, how do you know which agent is going to deliver the best outcome when they all talk the same? Or which agent is game enough to tell you the truth about what your home is really worth before the authority is signed? This is when having an independent expert by your side really counts.
Rob is one of Melbourne’s most experienced advocates who is not only well connected with the best agents in town, but knows how they behave and how best to safeguard your interests. That means you can be sure that your agent does not under deliver on the sale of your house from the get-go.
