Kona Realtor - Are Not All Created Equal

You are considering buying a home here in Kona, Hawaii and you don’t have a Realtor.  How do you pick the right Realtor to represent you?


Not all Realtors are created equal and today I am going to go over some things you should consider when selecting a Realtor to work with here in Kona


So let me introduce myself.  Aloha my name is Stephen Proski with Real Estate Kona and Compass Hawaii, welcome to my Ohana.  


 Buying real estate long distance and in most cases here in Kona sight unseen you want to make sure you have the right real estate agent representing your interest, I repeat YOUR Interest and not theirs or the sellers

Yes, there are different types of realtors, some just list and sell properties, some just work with buyers and others may do a little of both.  If you are buying a home, you really want to work with an Accredited Buyers Representative agent and I am going to tell the reasons why today

For most homebuyers, purchasing a home is the largest and most complex financial endeavor they may ever undertake. And by choosing the right REALTOR, you will have more confidence in your buying experience as you work with an agent who goes the extra mile.

 So Stephen why should I work with an Accredited Buyers Representative agent rather than an agent without a professional designation?

First, an Accredited Buyers Representative is trained to work as hard for you as the listing agent works for the seller. They are also trained to negotiate on your behalf concerning price, terms and conditions. The ABR® designation represents a dedicated commitment and a high level of service specifically to the buyer

An Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR) Realtor must do all of the following

  •        Keep your information confidential.

  •        Disclose what they know about the seller.

  •        Has to negotiate on your behalf.

  •        Negotiates solutions to problems to the benefit of you the buyer.

  •        Focuses on your specifications of what you are looking for in a home.

 All other real estate agent do not need to adhere to these standards of practice.  So, if you are buying real estate do you want to work with just anyone real estate agent or do you want to work with someone who is looking out for your interest only? 


To further explain why you want to use an Accredited Buyers Representative on your home purchase,
