You agree to:

* Get a written Pre-Approval from your choice of financing source and provide a copy to us

* Inform us about any properties you wish to inspect listed in the MLS

* Provide us with contact information regarding "For Sale By Owners", "Builder's New Construction" or "Vacant Lots" so we can acquire all the necessary documentation on your behalf

* Mention that you are working with the Mary Opfer Team at RE/MAX Unlimited Northwest and your Buyer Agent's Name when attending any public open houses or Realtor tours (we can provide you with business cards to distribute so you don't have to leave your personal information)

* Keep us informed as to the status of any existing home sale you might have

* Communicate through us on anything pertaining to the transaction.  We are your representatives and will obtain all the answers for you. 

Most Importantly:
We are a service provider.  We do not get paid until the transaction closes.  We are typically paid by sellers through an agreement made between them and their Broker in which they offer to share in the brokerage fee if we bring them a ready, willing and able buyer.  It is in your best interest to be represented by a ?Buyer?s Agent? as the Listing Broker ?works for the seller?.
