I heard an interesting story yesterday from a home inspector that works in the Washtenaw County area.
It was about one of those enlightening moments in his career and it happened ten or twelve years ago.
He was at an inspection and he was talking to the home buyer about radon and how it was a suspected carcinogen an how it was prevalent in the area. He also recommended that the buyer have a radon test done on the home.
Later that day after the buyer had left the nice real estate agent came up to him and said something along the lines of: “If you ever mention radon to a home buyer again I’ll have to stop using you.”
That was such a clear instruction, and so anti-buyer, that it made a huge impact on him. At that point he knew he either had to get under the thumb of the real estate industry or build his own referral base totally outside of the REALTOR organization. He chose the latter and he is still in business today.
And, our office is one of the only real estate companies in the market that actively uses this guy.
If you are looking to buy a home and you want a real estate company that will always be on your side, in your corner, and looking out for you, call us.
