Buying a Home

Buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions a person or family will make during their lives.
A REALTOR® is a trained professional who can provide consultative advice and support while helping you successfully navigate this exciting (and often nerve-wracking) process.

Why Sign a Buyer Representation Agreement?
Effective July 1, 2014 the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) requires all REALTORS® who establish a client relationship in residential real estate to enter into a Written Service Agreement with that client.

Written Service Agreements are often referred to as a "Buyer Representation Agreement" or "Seller Representation Agreement", depending on whether you are buying or selling a home. Written Service Agreements help ensure the role of an industry professional is clear – making clients better informed with less confusion and fewer disputes.
