In today's show, we’re going to discuss one of the biggest challenges faced by property buyers today: how to choose a good property buyer’s agent when there are so many enthusiastic amateurs out there.
I’m going to be chatting with Veronica Morgan, an experienced buyer’s agent and buyer’s agent mentor about why having an experienced and skilled buyer’s agent has never been more important.
However, with so many self-proclaimed "experts" out there, it can be challenging to identify a qualified professional who can truly represent your best interests.
So whether you're a first-time homebuyer or an experienced property investor, join us as we explore the world of buyers agents and help you find the right professional to help you achieve your real estate goals.
Buying a home is often the most significant financial decision a person will make in their lifetime.
It involves a significant investment of time, money, and emotions, and it's not something most people take lightly.
And that’s one of the reasons more and more home buyers and property investors engage a buyer's agent to help them navigate the complex process of finding and purchasing their property.
However, what many buyers don't realize is that not all buyer's agents are created equal, and many are not experienced enough to handle such a crucial responsibility.
So how do you choose a professional experienced buyer’s agent?
That’s a question I’m going to ask my guest today.
Veronica Morgan is an experienced buyer’s agent and buyer’s agent mentor with more than 20 years of experience in the competitive property market under her belt.
She’s the co-founder of Home Buyer Academy, co-host of Your First Home Buyer Guide podcast & The Elephant in the Room property podcast, co-host of Foxtel’s Location Location Location Australia & Relocation Relocation Australia, principal of Good Deeds Property Buyers, co-founder of Suburb Help, and author.
- Why there are more buyer’s agents and why we hear more about them now
- The qualifications needed to become a buyer’s agent
- How buyer’s agents learn their role and get started in their career
- What kind of money buyer’s agents make
- Whether buyer’s agents are good for consumers, and how consumers are protected from buyer’s agents who aren’t as good
- How consumers will know the difference between a good or bad buyer’s agent
The reality is that the best way to gain these skills is to land a job in an agency and learn from industry veterans themselves.
However, getting your foot in the door can feel near impossible.
So, what can you do when you can't gain experience without experience?
This is where the Buyers Agent Mentoring Program comes in.
Industry veteran Veronica Morgan created the program to help new and aspiring buyer's agents learn the on-the-ground skills they don't teach in licensing qualification courses.
While many work hard to attain their qualifications, the reality is that the licensing course is not enough to prepare agents for the complexities of the real estate industry.
The Buyer’s Agent Mentoring Program offers a solution to this problem, providing new agents with the experience and knowledge they need to succeed.
With programs like this, buyers can rest assured that their agent is well-equipped to handle the responsibility of finding and purchasing their dream home.
