The C21 team and your sales representative are committed to helping you acquire the property that’s right for you. We offer the best service in the industry - you can expect extensive market knowledge, proven real estate marketing savvy and strong negotiation skills from your real estate professional. We offer a full-service program that may include some of the marketing services listed below to develop a customized program that reflects your personal needs. 

☐ Buyer Information Session. At this meeting, we will perform a detailed “needs 

assessment” to learn what is important to you throughout the home buying process. 

☐ Buyer Agency Alternatives. We will discuss the alternatives for agency representation 

that are available to you. 

☐ Buyer Representation Agreement. We will present and explain to you the buyer 

representation agreement and the special services and benefits it offers. 

☐ Home Buying Process. We will explain the entire home buying process to you in advance and guide you through every step along the way. This step ensures all your questions are answered so that when you find the ‘right’ home you are prepared to make an informed decision. 

☐ Financial Pre-approval. We will offer to arrange a pre-qualification or pre-approval appointment with a reputable lender/broker to identify your range of affordability (comfortability), discuss what mortgage products are available to you and to increase your negotiating strength. 

☐ C21 Sales Force. As one of the largest real estate organizations, represented in over 80 

countries worldwide, we can connect you. We will use our network of contacts to help find your property. Our goal is to show you properties, when possible as they debut or before they hit the market.
