Not necessarily. We rarely ‘recommend’ agents. Rather we prefer to suggest agents. The final choice is yours. In many cases, we expect that sellers will suggest an agent and ask us to monitor the sales process and assist the sellers.
You get our help and support at no charge.
From the time you think of selling until the time your property sells you can contact us for help and suggestions at any time. Think of us as your real estate ally – someone to watch over (monitor) what’s going on.
There are usually two reasons that sellers don’t like agents, either the property is not being sold or the agents are asking the sellers to accept too low a price.
If this happens, we can speak to the agent for you. If we cannot solve the problem, we will probably recommend sacking the agent. We will then monitor the next agent for you. Provided we feel you are being reasonable we will monitor as many agents for as long as it takes to sell your property.
We will stick with you.
While our payment does come from agents, the agents are paying us out of the selling commissions, which means, in effect, that our payment does come (in a round-about fashion) from the sellers.
We will always be loyal to the sellers because we want to attract more sellers not more agents.
No way. Any agent who increased their commission to sellers (in order to cover our fees) would NEVER receive another referral from Real Estate Monitors & Referrals.
Further, if that did happen, then Real Estate Monitors & Referrals would DROP its fee to ensure that you, the seller, NEVER paid extra.
Our aim is that our service to sellers is, effectively, FREE OF CHARGE.
If not, there is no charge from us.
If you are not happy, you should let us know BEFORE you sell.
If you are not happy with the agent, we can try and find another agent.
If you are not happy with us, then, because REAL ESTATE MONITORS is Jenman Approved) you have Neil Jenman’s guarantee. The fees paid to us could be refunded. However, unless the agent is also Jenman Approved, a refund of the agent’s share would depend on the agent.
Not to us. Never. We would also advise you against paying any fees to any agent until your property is sold and you are happy. The only way you could pay upfront fees would be if you ignored our advice.
Yes. We offer all sellers a copy of Terry Ryder’s wonderful book, Real Estate Without Agents. And Terry has very kindly offered his support at no charge to any private sellers who have read his book.
If you sell without an agent you can, if you wish, make a token payment to us but there will be no pressure for you to do so.
Again, yes. We will help any genuine real estate consumer, regardless of whether or not we are going to earn money.
Buying, selling, renting, investing – whatever you want to do, we will do what we can to help you.
The team at REAL ESTATE MONITORS and Referrals is focussed on keeping you safe in real estate. We are about prevention NOT cure.
If you have been the victim of a real estate scam, you should contact The Neil Jenman Group or the Real Estate Consumers’ Association or your state’s Consumer Protection agency.
Yes, in most cases, we will be happy to give you some tips. Often, just a few minutes on the telephone could save you a few thousand dollars. Provided, of course, that the property you wish to buy is not one of the ones that we have referred to an agent.
Nothing. We do not charge buyers for assistance.
We want to win the trust of all honest real estate consumers. And to win that trust, we believe we have to show that we are genuine in our desire to help.
We believe a thank-you is often better payment than a cheque.
