The purpose of the material is to show agents the proper way to work with buyers and how the agent’s role in representing the buyer is crucial in the selling process.

Any agent who is in the real estate business will have the opportunity to work with buyers. Knowing how to find the “right” property for the buyer requires practice, skills and a desire to service.

The better the agent is equipped to handle the buyer’s objections, ask quality questions and provide stellar service representing the buyer, the more professional the industry will become as buyers will be handled skillfully.
