More on being a realtor...
In North Carolina, when you hire a realtor, you are hiring a person who has fiduciary duties to you.
“Fiduciary” means trust, and a person with a fiduciary duty has a legal obligation to maintain that trust. For example, lawyers have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interest of their clients.
NC Realtors have Six Fiduciary Duties to their clients: Loyalty. Reasonable Care and Diligence. Confidentiality. Accounting. Disclosure. Obedience.
Overwhelmingly, buyers are represented by their own agents-realtors (as are sellers). Buyers need an agent's expertise and education, guidance and advocacy.
Buyers are responsible for hiring and paying their broker agent's commission. Buyers have always paid their broker's commission indirectly by way of their purchase funds. In 2024, we can expect that more and more sellers will opt NOT to pay the buyer agent's commission. The buyer will be expected to bring those funds to the closing table. This is a seismic shift in the real estate industry. Let's connect! I will be glad to role play and work out the best way for you as a buyer consumer to solve this new wrinkle in buying a home.

"I would like to give Pierrette my highest recommendation and that is something that I hold in reserve for " efforts carried out above and beyond" the call of duty! She helped our daughter shop and shop for the house that fit her needs and when they found it, she guided her through the first time buyers experience with a gentle and steady grip. The market in Ashville moves fast, but Pierrette took that to new heights and record breaking speed by getting the due diligence, loan approval, inspections, and the works done a two weeks and we closed in three. That's right, I said 2 & 3 weeks and without a hitch at closing. There were special circumstances and I wouldn't ask her to do it again, but when push came to shove she and her team were ready. She was so sweet to our daughter and displayed her integrity and courage when things got tense and tough as they do in the pressure filled world of home buying!
When you are serious about finding the perfect home, call Pierrette and relax!"
