When you are ready to either buy or sell your real estate investment, you might think that it won’t be challenging to do it yourself. With the information and endless resources found on the internet and so easily accessible, listing a property or searching for one to buy could be very well something you could do on your own.

You May Be Right right – it is certainly something you can do by yourself, but that doesn’t mean you should. Buying or selling a real estate investment is a serious transaction that involves a lot of emotional and financial stress. REALTOR® are trained and highly-skilled experts professionals who can make the process a much easier experience for you, 

You're trusting a REALTOR® with your most valuable possession, your home, REALTORS® take this responsibility very seriously. Here's what we promise you:
  1. Your REALTOR® is a trained professional

    REALTORS® take extensive pre-licensing courses in order to obtain credentials for practicing in real estate. Rather than spend the time trying to research or learn the ins and outs of real estate, a REALTORS® already has the knowledge and experience necessary. They understand the complicated jargon that comes with real estate. Save yourself some time and hire someone who is already well-versed in the field.
  2. Your REALTOR® is continuously trained

    REALTORS® stay up to date on the ever-changing industry of real estate. The laws, standards, regulations, and practices in the world of real estate, are constantly changing, and stay informed on these changes.

    REALTORS® must adhere to the extensive Code of Ethics of the Canadian Real Estate Association. Several provinces have additional codes of ethics governing real estate professionals. Your interests must always be put first.
  5. Opportunity for recourse

    Should you have concerns about the professional behavior of a REALTOR®, provincial regulators and your local real estate board or association take these matters very seriously and work quickly to resolve any issues.
  6. Your REALTOR® has access to a local Board's MLS® System

    A Board's MLS® system is the single most powerful tool for buying and selling a home. Your REALTOR® can provide you with exclusive features of the Board's MLS® System, such as immediate notification when new properties are listed. They also have greater access than you do and are able to see listings before they go public.You don't have to wait for it to be posted on a web site.
