Choose a REALTOR® in Greater Vancouver & BC

PAGE INDEX : Your relationship with your REALTOR® | How to Find a REALTOR®.

Selling your home is complex and one of the largest financial transactions you'll make in your lifetime. A professional REALTOR® will save you time, energy and money.

Your relationship with your REALTOR®

REALTORS® work within a legal relationship called "agency". The agency relationship is between you, the client, and the company with which your REALTOR® is licensed. It is a requirement for REALTORS® to disclose to clients the representation you will be receiving. This disclosure is usually done with the aid of a brochure entitled Working with a Real Estate Agent. Signing the brochure does not obligate you in any way. For more information about the agency relationship, read "Understanding Agency Relationships with your REALTOR®".

As a seller, your REALTOR® will:

  • Prepare a comparative market analysis and advise you on your home's market value.
  • List your house through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS®), a database of properties for sale that all REALTORS® can access.
  • Advertise your home, hold open houses and show your house.
  • Advise you on offers you receive.
  • Negotiate the sales contract.

[Top of Page]

How to find a REALTOR®

  • Get referrals from your family or friends.
  • Contact a local real estate office.
  • Go to open houses in your area to meet some local REALTORS®.
  • Check For Sale signs in neighbourhoods to get names of local agents.
  • Check the Yellow Pages in the phone book.
  • Use the Find a REALTOR® tool to search for REALTORS®.

When choosing a Realtor, look for an agent who:

  • Understands economic trends and the market.
  • Knows your local area.
  • Listens attentively and instills confidence.
  • Provides you with a written evaluation of your property.
