Who Can You Trust To Sell Your Home?

Think of all the people and things you trust every day. You trust that the food you buy is safe to eat, that the water is safe to drink, and that your car will start in the morning. You trust your family, your friends, and your business partners.

If you fly on an airplane you trust that the plane has been thoroughly inspected for mechanical problems, you trust that someone put fuel in the plane, and that the pilot has the experience and skills necessary to fly and land the plane safely.

As real estate professionals trust is also a key element of our business. When we list a home for sale in Springfield Missouri, our clients are entrusting us to handle all the details of one of the most important financial transactions of their lives. People make small purchases every day and might sell an occasional small item or even a used car but selling a home is an event that only happens a few times in their lifetime. They rely on us to work hard to get their home sold and make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible.

When selling a home you are trusting your real estate agent with confidential financial information, personal information, and trusting that they will represent your best interests. The bottom line is as REALTORS® our relationship with our clients is built on trust. Not only is it a must but it's a key part of the REALTORS® code of ethics.

Betty & John, you make an obvious point about how we often trust certain people or things without even thinking about it. Hopefully, home buyers and sellers will give more consideration to this relationship than just trusting the first person who comes along.
