For many people they think that finding a buyer for their home means the 'deal is done', however as Tom points out there are many bridges to crossed before you reach the end goal. The job of a good agent is to make sure everyone in the chain is moving in the right direction, that there is transparency between all parties and that the sale or purchase go through. We don't get paid if the deal falls away and with 1 in 3 deals falling away Nationally, it shows the level of service and commitment re ...
