DO YOU WANT TO SELL YOUR APARTMENT?
Are you looking for a real estate broker who will represent you, the seller, disclosing very clearly any Dual Agency and make it subject to your approval?
Would you hire the same attorney representing the buyer? Would that be a wise choice?
The same applies to real estate brokers.
Be wary of Dual Agency
Dual agents cannot fully perform all their fiduciary duties for the seller and for the buyer at the same time. Undivided loyalty, and full and fair disclosure are not possible for when a Dual Agency is created. Both seller and buyer are giving up their right to the agent’s undivided loyalty. Once you agree to dual agency, you need to be careful about what you say to your agent because your agent may use the information in a way that is not in your best interest.

An easy solution: hire us to be your seller’s broker
You will have the guarantee that we won’t be Dual Agents unless there is properly disclosure and prior authorization and agreement.
Having us as your own Seller’s Agent gives you a HUGE advantage, in fact according to the New York State Disclosure form for Buyer and Seller, “A seller’s agent is an agent who is engaged by a seller to represent the seller’s interests. The seller’s agent does this by securing a buyer for the seller’s home at a price and on terms acceptable to the seller. A seller’s agent has, without limitation, the following fiduciary duties to the seller: reasonable care, undivided loyalty, confidentiality, full disclosure, obedience and duty to account. A seller’s agent does not represent the interests of the buyer. The obligations of a seller’s agent are also subject to any specific provisions set forth in an agreement between the agent and the seller. In dealings with the buyer, a seller’s agent should (a) exercise reasonable skill and care in performance of the agent’s duties; (b) deal honestly, fairly and in good faith; and (c) disclose all facts known to the agent materially affecting the value or desirability of property, except as otherwise provided by law.”
1) LATEST TECHNOLOGY
We use 360 images, 360 videos, virtual renderings and real time streaming showings when necessary.
2) EXTREMELY EXPERIENCED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE
Working with so many clients, local and international, give us a much wider perspective and often allows us to anticipate market trends. We are quick, flexible and adaptable to the rapid changes that we are facing. We have worked in particularly difficult transactions that many brokers before us didn’t think were doable.
3) PERSONAL REAL ESTATE BROKERAGE
Our service is really custom made, on demand.
One example: if we realize that your property can be particularly attractive for buyers in a certain market, by using dedicated service platforms, we can directly target that market.
4) HIGH LEVEL OF SERVICE
We offer the same services that a large Corporation can offer, but we do that under our direct control.
5) STRAIGHTFORWARD: we always give our honest opinion.
We really have many overseas clients, directly connected with us, not through a network managed by others.
Technology, online advertising, software and service platforms make it possible for a boutique Company to hit the highest point of service and to set up everything quickly and directly. If you are interviewing other Brokers we would be happy to have a meeting with you too!
