Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) September 27, 2004
Industry experts are often amazed that more transferring families do not use the services of a buyerÂs broker. After all, with severe limits on a transfereeÂs time, changes confining relocation benefits programs and a pressing need for immediate area data to base key decisions on, it would seem that a buyerÂs broker and corporate or military transferee would be a natural fit.
In fact, industry studies show that those transferees that use a buyerÂs broker benefit mightily. A study by Sprint found that 232 relocating Sprint employees using buyer's brokers paid an average of 91% of a home's list price versus buyers using traditional agents typically paying about 96%. On a house with final list price of $350,000, that could amount to a difference of $17,500.
So whatÂs the glitch? ThatÂs what Bethesda, Maryland real estate broker Dave Kolakowski asked himself. After thirteen years as an exclusive BuyerÂs Broker and founding member of the National Association of Exclusive BuyerÂs Agents, he studied the market to discover the missing element: SERVICE.
With this in mind, he created what is thought to be an industry first Â a Full-Service BuyerÂs Brokerage operation that offers top-notch and objective real estate advocacy to home buyers, a Personal Relocation Concierge and a state-of-the-art web site to connect all the dots.
Found at http://www.bethesdabuyers.com, buyers interested in the Maryland, Virginia and Northwest DC markets can view listings for sale, access a treasure trove of local information and resources on schools, neighborhoods and more.
If thatÂs not enough, heÂs incorporated a free Personal Relocation ConciergeÃ to help before, during and after the move has taken place. Says Kolakowski ÂitÂs about time that transferring families can work with a real estate expert whose interests are aligned so tightly with a buyerÂs, we can see the results almost immediately!Â For more, go to http://www.bethesdabuyers.com.
