Etchells & Young adheres to a strict code of ethics set out by the EAAB, which governs certain duties performed by the agents in order to protect the client. Registered estate agents commit to a reasonable standard of conduct and skill. Failure to comply with these regulations causes serious reputational damage for both the agent and agency, weakening future referral business, and can result in legal action should the noncompliance continue. Our agents are committed to giving continuous, personalised, professional service!
Regular, accurate feedback throughout the sales process - from viewing to registration - is a necessity.
The agent is the primary point of contact between buyers and sellers. Prospective buyers are more likely to give honest feedback to the agent, which is then objectively relayed to the seller - along with the agent’s opinion and advice on positive and negative features, the selling price, required repairs and potential renovations. It should be noted that the agent facilitates repairs, renovations and maintenance to the property between the buyer and seller and makes certain the necessary addendums to the sales agreement are included. A good sales agent facilitates a smooth buyer-seller relationship!
The sales agent, along with the conveyancing attorney, ensure that all required contracts, reports, documentation and certificates are accurate, valid and in order from the signing of the sales agreement through to receipt of the clearance certificate and transfer duty. This ensures unnecessary delays are avoided. Each step is overseen by both the agent and conveyancer, and regular updates, explanations and assistance given in understanding and completing the documents.
