My duty is to guide your transaction through the process with care and expertise. As a professional, I must follow an extensive legal and due-diligence checklist before, during, and after your home sale. I start by researching the legal status of your property; to assure potential buyers that your home has a clear and marketable title and no hidden liabilities. Next is to determine a fair market value based on a number of factors including intangibles such as demand for a particular style. Marketing your home is more than professional photos; it’s also about exposure to potential buyers here in the Columbia Valley and across Canada. Your property is marketed though a syndicated network to thousands of property sites from coast to coast.
Did you know that REALTORS® are required by law to act as fiduciaries in your transaction? In a fiduciary relationship, one person in a position of vulnerability justifiably vests confidence, good faith, reliance, and trust in another whose aid, advice or protection is sought in some matter. It does not allow for any conflict of interest whatsoever and requires full disclosure of any potential conflict of interest. It requires complete honesty and disclosure of any relevant information from the fiduciary to the person to whom it is owed. It does not allow a scintilla of disloyalty to exist. That’s my professional promise to you.
Errors and omissions is a type of professional liability insurance that ensures buyers and sellers in British Columbia can easily and quickly settle problems that might arise from liability in the real estate transaction. By law, all REALTORS® must insure their practices with adequate coverage, usually not less than $5 million. Your trust in me is safeguarded with E&O insurance and the support of the BC Real Estate Association to ensure your right to remedy is protected.
