The problem is that in France, most real estate agencies represent both the buyer and the seller. Meaning, that when they « quote un quote » represent a buyer, what they are really trying to do is sell their inventory. So, if they are only trying to sell their inventory, are they really representing the buyer’s interest ?
In reality, they are representing the seller. And that is the flaw with real estate in France : a regular french agency represents both the buyer and the seller in a transaction. That is like an attorney trying to prosecute AND defend the same person at the same time. It doesn’t work !
That’s why if you are buying thru me, I am not even going to show you my listings, because I don’t want to try to represent you and the seller at the same time. To the contrary, as your personal broker, I am going to look at every available appartement in Paris and find you the one that best suits your needs for the best price possible !
On the same token, if you are a seller, I am not going to show your apartement on my website to my clients. Instead, I will put your apartement on the french version of the multiple list service and make it widely available so everybody can see it. That way, it won’t be my clients buying it from you and I’ll be free to defend your interest and sell it for the best possible price !
Last but not least, whether you are buying or selling, I am going to tailor-make a deal that fits your needs.
Meaning, I’ll take the time to really get to know you, to hear what you want, and to help you define your project. Because buying or selling real estate is a big deal ; Lots of issues are at stake and I’ll be here to help you go thru it with serenity, peace and happiness.
And that personalized service IS the Welcome Home Paris added value.
I look forward to hearing from you,
