Do agents deserve a commission fee? Serban Spirea (FGREALTY) offers his take

To pay commission or not? This is the conundrum faced by many when searching for somewhere to live or work. Whilst some agents are deserving of a fee for their endeavors, some, perhaps are not. The debate goes on as to whether agent commission fees are justified.

We have with us, one of the most qualified voices on this topic, Mr. Serban Spirea, founder and CEO of FGRealty International. 

Like in any other business or industry, no service is offered for free. Starting from banking to stock market platforms or your laundry. Any service needs to be paid and paid well to maximize its quality.

Have you ever noticed, when entering a restaurant as a client known to pay good tips, that the waiter hurries up to provide the “extra mile” service?

When buying or leasing any real estate product, agents must be stimulated that you understand and value their service. This is how an agent provides the max effort to find the right product, represent your interest and negotiate a GREAT deal.

“Cheap is expensive”, a colleague of mine told me one time. What do you mean, I asked? When you meet agents telling you that the commission / real estate fee is not applicable, what they are telling you is that the fee is incorporated into the price you pay. Therefore, the value of the commission that you MUST pay is the trigger to negotiate a better deal than a FREE one. What do you need to do? Insist on paying the real estate fee and see the magic.

To maximize the right choice process for a real estate deal, a few steps need to be followed:
1. Research the right agency
2. Go deep into its team members
3. Interview minimum 3/4 agents by telling your need and how you understand their input
4. Shortlist them
5. Check ratings and references
6. Enjoy the journey

My advice is that choosing the right agent to represent you in the whole process is the smartest money you can invest as a first-time buyer, investor, or tenant. Find a Great agent and pay well! Our real estate agents are well prepared to represent your interest in FINDING GREAT REALTY!
