Hootie Johnston, ABR®, SRES®
Greater Vancouver's Top Exclusive Buyer Agent**
What is an exclusive buyer’s representative?
Defined most simply, a buyer’s representative (also buyer’s rep, or buyer’s agent) is an advocate for You, the buyer, — and not the seller—
in a real estate transaction. Real estate laws and regulations vary from region to region, but a buyer’s representatives owe a full fiduciary (legal) duties, including loyalty and confidentiality, exclusively to their buyer- clients and work in their clients’ best interests throughout the entire transaction.
As someone who specializes helping buyers (13 Award winning years licenced in Greater Vancouver)
I am a buyer specialist and am not a rookee/junior "team" member assigned to "help" youfind something to buy while I learn the real estate business. No I am a cold Hard Negotiator who has his hands and feet in the market. I a the first call of many agents who have a hard sell propety... and they need a buyer.
I specialize in the buying process and in YOUR buying needs. I have extensive experience with professional relocations and first-time buyers (but will still help any locals- my favourite)
I am the agent that other agents send their Vancouver buyers to.
Over the years I have helped members of the RCMP, Canadian Armed forces, Doctors and other professionals relocate to Vancouver, as well as my speciality- FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS.
How does an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) differ from other buyer’s representatives?
An ABR® is a buyer’s representative who has completed advanced training and who has proven experience in serving the special needs of buyer-clients. In addition to knowing the dynamics of the local market, an ABR®-designated buyer’s rep can help you make informed decisions throughout the entire home buying process. An ABR® is also a REALTOR® (a member of the NAR) and must abide by a strict code of ethics.
