Selling your Los Angeles Home and Buying Another? Use the Same Agent

Los Angeles home sellers often contact me to help them find a home to buy or rent.

Knowing that they are obviously already working with a Realtor® my first question is, “have you asked your current Realtor® to help you?”

Today I received one of those calls from a lovely lady who said, and I kid you not, “Oh no.  He is so busy selling my home I didn’t want to bother him.”  Now don’t get me wrong.  I am certainly more than willing to help someone  who is buying a Los Angeles home, but the right thing to do is make sure that their present Los Angeles Real Estate Agent, Los Angeles Rental PropertiesRealtor® knows about it.

I know that many people don’t understand how we Realtors® earn our keep.  If we are not buying, selling, or renting properties we are starving.  We do not earn a salary, and most of us don’t have sugar daddies.  So, if I were that listing agent and found out that my client had bought a property through another agent I would not be happy.

Conversely, if a prospective home buyer came to me, as this lady did, asking about a property with the intention of eventually having her agent write up the contract, guess who would not be happy.

I informed the buyer of the ways of the Realtor® world, which included the fact that she should not be doing the work herself.  I like to think that we do work for our money and are not just paper pushers.  She should make sure her listing agent works with her on her search.  I am sure he will be only too happy to oblige.

So, if you have a Los Angeles Realtor® already, they are going to be able, and will be extremely happy to, help you with your next real estate transaction.  And it is really the right thing to do.

Of course if things don’t work out, you know who to call.
