The end of agreed opinions...
Customers-witnesses or circle speaking about delivered services... well, but how is it actually ?
Who are these people ? Are they reliable ? Were they only warned of the services that a Real Estate hunter or finder is supposed to deliver ? Were they able to compare ? So have they been correctly represented...
It is necessary to be logical to know the truth : better will be worth basing onself on a reliable, global, associative opinion, resulting from a long experience, an informed opinion which brings to an irrefutable choice, unquestionably that corresponding to the concept that only the , by its acts, is entitled to offer.

Know the truth...
The naming real estate hunter is inseparable from the exclusive mention "EBA" if the efficiency must be real ; here is below thus the opinion openly expressed of a press and representative organs of very real people :
"Groups such as the Consumer Federation and the American Association of Retired Persons recommend using buyer's agents... the reason is they work."
"Consider an exclusive buyer-broker who will represent only you, not the sellers. Nonexclusive real-estate agents tend to show you their own listings first, since they won’t have to share the commission if they represent both the buyer and the seller. Then they’ll probably show you their firm’s listings, since they stand to gain from those sales as well." Jim Guest, President, Consumers Union.
It is still necessary to specify that the fees can be freely demanded from both parts in some countries and that the exclusivity is often wrongfully claimed. An approval thus stays necessary in Europe.
"Buyer brokers will better represent the interests of buyers than will sub-agents. They are more likely, for example, to negotiate a lower sales price on a house."
A pension protected from the risk inherent to members' networks, here is a necessity considering the financial constraints which can then arise ; it will be expressly advisable that the investment in a property and its purchase are secured for pensioned people or on the way to be.
Once again it is not worth considering that such dedicated mission is given to a mandatory already engaged or without qualification. will thus give good advice in a context where everything can be said to a senior clientele, privileged target for such people.
"We urge consumers who are purchasing a home to first consider an exclusive buyer broker relationship."
"The Consumer Federation believes that designated agency is a misleading term because the agents involved do not necessarily owe sole allegiance to clients."
This last relevant remark by Mr. Stephen Brobeck, executive manager, is eloquent ; when a person in charge of an association who gathers 300 organizations speaks in these terms to a body of State, we can only notice and approve this remark.
It remains certain that these assertions of Consumer Federation of America, based on an acquired experience since 1968, do not come from an improvised judgment the difference between the simple naming of real estate or flat hunter and the own established approval " EBA - exclusive agent " by the for Europe.
With the non well defined naming of real estate hunter and the importance of the notion of representativeness, things must be clarified here for the public as it is everywhere else.
Considering the existence of mandatories involved in a legal but not revealed dual agency, even sometimes at an associative level, the search made by a provider really in charge of the interests of a unique clientele, the only remaining choice is to pass through the for a demanding customer requiring the best service.
