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

Marilyn did an excellent job in first helping me to buy my condo a few years ago. Then when it came time to sell it, she was there to provide a stellar experience once again. I can't stress enough how much it meant to me that she took charge and streamlined the whole process. She knew exactly how to price and advertise the property, and it sold before I even knew it was gone. If you want an agent that sees the sale through to closing, promptly and professionally, choose Marilyn! Andrew Bays
She knows how we feel about her high quality of work ethics, professional attitude , knowledge, ability to follow through on things, .....everything. After all, this is the SIXTH time she has successfully helped us with buying and selling houses! We hope it will be our last, but if it isn't, we will call her to represent us. Thanks Marilyn! Sally Sack
Marilyn Messenger is thoughtful, responsible, kind, genuine, very knowledgeable and one of the finest brokers I have EVER worked with. It was a real pleasure to work with Marilyn and she made my purchase of a condo at Deer Hedge Run Condominiums very very easy. I would recommend her and commend her knowledge and services!
