DuCourtier Brokers can also be intermediaries in your dealings with the many people involved in the sale of your property. Their large networks of contacts range from building inspectors to notaries, and from financial institutions to mortgage brokers. Brokers are a one-stop shop for all these services, and their involvement guarantees you the legal protection offered by the Real Estate Brokerage Act.

Did you know that real estate brokers receive their compensation only when the notarized deed has been signed? The amount they receive for a real estate transaction is determined when the brokerage contract is signed with the client, but the amount is paid only when the transaction is made official.

Often called a "commission", compensation doesn’t go directly into the broker’s pocket. If a selling broker (representing the buyer) was involved in the sale, the listing broker (representing the seller) must pay a portion of his compensation to the selling broker. Also, as a self-employed worker, the listing broker incurs many expenses before even receiving compensation, such as liability insurance, as well as advertising, transportation and office fees. That’s why Realtors that work at duCourtier with lower office fees, can in turn offer the vendor a lower commission rate than industry standards.

Buying or selling a home can involve a variety of financial, legal and technical worries. By using the services of a real estate broker from duCourtier, you can accomplish one of life's most important transactions without any complications. And remember, they only get paid if they get results, because brokers will receive their compensation only if they successfully sell your property.
