Buyer Agency

"Marilyn recently helped us purchase our home in Sudbury. There were a number of things that Marilyn brought to the search process that helped: local knowledge of who built which houses, streets that were more or less desirable because of traffic conditions, tips on finding neighborhoods with children, local shopping, etc. She was also very responsive to all of our questions and really helped us through the whole process. I would highly recommend Marilyn for any prospective home buyer." D.B. Tue, Jul 22, 2014

What’s a Buyer’s Agent/Broker?

A real estate buyer's agent represents the buyer who is purchasing property in a real estate transaction. Research by the National Association of REALTORS has shown that when a buyer's agent/broker is used, the prospective buyer found a home one week faster and examined three more properties than consumers who did not use a buyer's agent. The buyer's agent works for, and owes fiduciary responsibilities to, the real estate buyer and represents the buyer's best interests throughout the entire real estate process. 

A buyer's agent/broker will: 
  • Listen and evaluate the specific needs and wants of the buyer and help locate properties that fit those specifications.
     
  • Assist in securing appropriate financing.  
     
  • Assist in viewing properties -- accompany the buyer on the showings, or preview the properties on behalf of the buyer to insure that the identified specifications are met. 
     
  • Research the selected properties to identify any problems or issues to help the buyer make an informed decision prior to making an offer to purchase the property.
     
  • Advise the buyer on structuring an appropriate offer to purchase the selected property. 
     
  • Present the offer to the seller's agent and when possible, the seller on the buyer's behalf. 
     
  • Negotiate on behalf of the buyer to help obtain the identified property -- keeping the buyer's best interests in mind. 
     
  • Provide a list of potential qualified vendors (e.g. movers, attorneys, carpenters, etc.) if these services are needed. 
     
  • Most importantly, fully-represent the buyer throughout the real estate transaction.

Recommendations for Marilyn Messenger

Dear Marilyn, I wanted to commend you for your excellent service during the sale of my home. You went over and above what I was expecting and made this deal happen. Your performance, perseverance, and focus as my advocate was a true blessing and comfort. This deal, as you know, almost did not happen. Had it not been for your commitment to me and your tenacity to make it happen, I would not have sold my home. Thank you so much Marilyn for who you are in the world and for all your hard work. You are a light in the world and I am glad to know you. I would recommend your services to anyone. Best Wishes, Ron W. Vancour PS: This is to anyone looking to choose a Real Estate Agent… If you thinking about listing your home and you’re not sure which agent to list with, may I suggest that you list with Marilyn Messenger. While it might not seem that the listing agent matters, let me tell you – it does. Not all situations are alike. I interviewed two other agents before her, and neither understood my unique situation. Marilyn was patient. We worked the game plan together, and she gave wise counsel along the way. We did some judicious updating, tweaked the plan as we went along and we hit my goals. Most importantly, she has great communication skills, perseverance, strong ethics and professionalism. If you want a listing in the MLS and a sign in the yard, you can get that anywhere. If you want a trusted partner, you want Marilyn. Ron W. Vancour Ron Vancour
I would highly recommend Marilyn for selling or buying a house. She worked for my wife and I and she was always available to come to the house or answer any questions. She listed our house on all of the web sites and did a fantastic job selling it. If you want to look for a house or sell your house contact Marilyn, she does a fantastic job. Craig L.
Anyone buying or selling a house in the area west of Boston would be well advised to contact Marilyn Messenger. She was a pleasure to work with when I bought my house, and went the "extra mile" to make sure that all the necessary documents were in place and all the tasks completed. She was willing to meet people at the house for inspections so that I didn't have to drive up from Connecticut, and reported promptly whenever something needed to be done. I can heartily recommend her Sandy A.
