Your Ideal Estate Agent, if you could bake the perfect broker

What would you want and expect from your ideal estate agent?

Of course, there's only so much influence even the best agent can have on things like property management. But given the context and environment, what do you need and hope from your salesperson?

Re: Your Ideal Estate Agent, if you could bake the perfect broker

One who is honest and trustworthy. Who has a set percentage fee for buyers and sellers alike. Who sets out ALL the costs involved in buying a property. Who works on the buyers behalf - not for the the builder/developer.
Who is able to explain the whole process and answer questions on all aspects of the process. One who will steer clients away from dodgy deals.

Thats just to start the ball rolling, no doubt others will think of a zillion other things.

We found one just like that in Tosmur/Alanya.He found us 5 properties to view and took us round to view them the following day.Two of the properties turned out to be co-operative so he insisted we did not even consider them.
The one that most suited us was still an empty shell,he knew we wanted to move quickly so he spoke to the builder and arranged for the Villa to be completed within 6 weeks,which it was and to a very high standard with all the extras (Air con,Central heating,shutters and nets on all windows and all the white goods).The builder knew we had 2 dogs so built a wall and fence around the garden at no extra cost.
To put the icing on the cake he did not charge us a buyers fee.
He's one in a million and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again

He was happy enough with the fee from the builder

Re: Your Ideal Estate Agent, if you could bake the perfect broker

What difference does it make as long as the service is good with everything covered and you are happy with the final figure, it doesn't matter how it breaks down.

We paid the Price printed in the builders brochure and on their website and not a penny more.The agen is the husband of a very good English friend of ours. Not all Turks are cheats,there are some that are very trustworthy.

that's right not all Turks are cheats, it is the bad apples that give them a bad reputation. Great to hear someone has had some good luck
