Buying with Powers
Charlie Powers is an Accredited Land Consultant which is the trademark of Brokers that have the proven ability to get deals done. When you hire a Broker you are entering a Principal-Agent relationship and you are responsible for what your Broker does and says on your behalf. Likewise, your Agent has responsibilites to you. Does your Broker have the proven experience and is that person regarded as one of the best in the industry?
Selecting a Buyers Agent
Trust & Integrity
Like two ranches, no two ranch brokers are alike. If you are interviewing brokers, as you should, ask them questions about how they will work for you. Locating a legacy property requires your broker to look in every nook and cranny, from unlisted properties to the countless sources of listings. Your agent must get to know you, your family, and your goals in order to hone in on properties that meet your criteria. Powers Land Brokerage is networked and utilizes every tool available to find that perfect place. We utilize mapping software to communicate target properties because most of us are visual people; after all, it is those unique qualities of the land that gives us the connection we are looking for.
Work Ethic & Tenacity
Searching for your next home and base of operations is hard work but that doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy the ride. The Rocky Mountain region is where you want to live because of the lifestyle it offers and the future your family will make from land. There is no substitute for boots on the ground and in certain situations prospecting the local honey holes. You need a Buyers Agent that isn't afraid to drive 12 hours a day down county roads and two track trails and then wet a line that evening over drinks and conversation. That is how you build a relationship and an understanding of what is necessary to find your little piece of heaven. Experience the Powers Difference!
So we finally narrowed down our list of properties to a couple that will make the cut. Now is when you need an experienced Broker more than ever. The time you have spent bouncing around on two track trails together will carry through the buying process. You and your broker are now on the same page in terms of your goals and your approach to communicating with Sellers. You need a Buyers Agent that is like a good bird dog, when you say go get it, he won't rest until its under contract. You need someone who is there with you every step of the way during the due diligence process and has the relationships with professionals, neighboring land owners, and other brokers in the various communities to leave no stone unturned.
