Consulting a REALTOR®
REALTORS® are members of The Canadian Real Estate Association who subscribe to a Code of Ethics and Standards of Business Practice. Members of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board are members of both the British Columbia and Canadian Real Estate Associations.The following is a list of services you can expect to receive from a REALTOR® when you buy a home:
- A REALTOR® will fully explain the details of your working relationship (called "agency") so that you are clear as to when a REALTOR® is working for you or for the seller.
- A REALTOR® has access to hundreds of current listings of homes for sale because of a co- operative system called the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®).
- A REALTOR® can provide you with a customized list of homes that best meet your needs -- size, style, features, location, proximity to schools, shopping, etc. - and then make arrangements for you to view those homes that appeal to you the most.
- A REALTOR® will help you determine how big a home you can afford. REALTORs® are familiar with the local lending market and can offer helpful advice.
- A REALTOR® has no emotional ties to any type or style of home and can be objective in pointing out the merits of one home over another.
- A REALTOR® will have information on zoning changes, taxes, utility costs and school and recreation services that could affect your decision to buy a home in a specific area.
- A REALTOR® will assist you in negotiating the terms of your purchase, which can be a nerve- wracking process for someone who is not experienced in negotiating.
- A REALTOR® will advise you of the legal process required in obtaining title and taking possession of your property; the costs associated with buying a home such as insurance, mortgage registration and legal fees will be explained in detail.
Selling Your Home - Why it Pays to Use a REALTOR®
Before selling your home, you will need a clear understanding of the legal issues and potential pitfalls. One wrong action could result in a lot of cost and frustration, which is why it is essential to have a REALTOR® working with you, as he or she will make the sale of your home a successful and satisfying experience.
REALTORS® use the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) to give your home maximum exposure. MLS® is a computer-based system that relays valuable information about your home to hundreds of REALTORS® and potential homebuyers.
Setting a price
Setting a price for your home is an important but difficult process. Again, this is where the services of a REALTOR® prove invaluable. REALTORS® have the experience to help you understand how the market works and decide upon a realistic price that meets your goals. REALTORS® also pre-screen potential buyers to make sure only those who are serious and financially qualified view your home.
REALTORS® will also develop a marketing plan to help your property receive maximum exposure. This will likely include placing your home on the MLS® system and placing a "For Sale" sign on the front lawn. The plan will likely also include arranging open houses for other REALTORS® and potential buyers, and developing advertisements and feature sheets/mailers to market your home.
Once you have accepted an offer to buy your home, your REALTOR® will help ensure that all the proper paperwork is completed. He or she will also make sure that both parties meet the necessary conditions outlined in the agreement.
Why working with a REALTOR® makes sense
When you work with a REALTOR® you will likely get a better price for your home than if you try to sell it yourself. Apart from the financial benefits, however, there is an extra measure of comfort and security that comes from having a REALTOR® on your side. Remember that REALTORS® are governed by a code of ethics and standards of business practice. They have also been trained and licensed under the provincial Real Estate Services Act to assist in transactions involving real property. When it comes to buying or selling property, using a REALTOR® just makes sense.

Jeff Kilduff - "Wendy Runge is a detail-oriented person who will definitely go the extra mile for you with regards to buying or selling a home. I highly recommend her services!"
Thomas Gibson - "Wendy Runge is an excellent choice for a Realtor. She has helped my wife and I purchase 2 homes and sell our home in Juniper. She really cares about her clients and works very hard to help find the correct match when searching for a new home. I would recommend her Realty services to anyone."
Tim Bourdois - "It was a difficult decision to sell my home after 22 years, but choosing who was going to represent me was the easiest part! Wendy wisely assessed my property, helped me decide on a fair market price and offered excellent advice at each an every step. She always kept in touch and was very quick to respond to any concerns and thoughts I had. I always felt that she had my best interests and the integrity of the sale in mind. Wendy conducted herself with the highest degree of professionalism, but still managed to maintain very personal touch. I can't recommend her highly enough. Buy or sell with confidence! Wendy is a wise choice!
Thank you Wendy"
Chay Nali - "Wendy help my wife and I purchase our first home. She made everything seamless and easy. Gave us all the facts she knew, and made recommendations based on what we were looking for. Wendy did not pressure us and allowed us to take the time we needed to make an informed decision.
Brian Delamont - "Moving to a new city can be challenging and confusing. Wendy provided us with information about Kamloops and the Kamloops market which really helped us in our decision making. Her in-depth knowledge of each area, the amenities and attributes of each community, were a real help for us in our purchase. Wendy worked extremely hard, listened attentively, gave us all the options we asked for and helped us process some of the tough decisions that transition brings. She was an invaluable resource and we couldn't be happier living where we live.
Thank you Wendy!"
Raelene Dueck - "We
are very pleased with the service that Wendy provided for us in looking for a
new home. She took the time to truly understand what we were looking for in a
home and was patient with us as we looked at many houses. She gave us her
perspective on each home but in no way pressured us to consider a listing that
we weren't completely sure of. It took us quite a long time to find the
right new home for us as we were not under any pressure to move.
Throughout the process Wendy was professional, patient and kept her sense of
humour. She went out of her way during the difficult negotiating process and
was always available to answer questions - even when she was rushing to attend
the birth of her first grandchild! We feel confident in recommending Wendy as a
realtor as we felt she provided us with exceptional service. The process of
buying a new home is stressful but Wendy worked hard to minimize the
complexities in a friendly and competent manner."
