WORKING TOGETHER
As my client, you can and should confide in me. This is especially important when negotiating. I can help you reach your goal only if I know what that goal is.

Should you discover a property that I have not shown you, let us know about it right away. I will make every effort available to show that property to you.

If you go to an open house, give the seller/agent my card. This will help keep that agent from hounding you for feedback on property that doesn’t interest you.

If other agents contact you, let them know that we are working together.
