Retreat Realty is a North Carolina real estate firm which serves its clients as a “Buyer’s Agent”. That is, we do not list properties, but rather work only for Buyers, locating, pre-screening properties and helping them find the right property. Until you have signed a Buyer’s Agency Agreement, you should not discuss any confidential information with us. For a full explanation of agency, click here to read the brochure on this matter published by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission.
It is important to understand that touring properties in the mountains takes time and effort. Its not like an urban area where one can easily view ten houses in one day. Mountain properties are spread out, especially those best suited for retreats. Therefore, we will first want to have a lengthy discussion with you prior to showing properties and we may ask for verification of funds to ensure you have the ability to purchase what you are shown. That is, we value your time, but we also value ours and can only show properties to qualified individuals. We aren’t tour guides. We take our profession seriously and can’t spend a tank of gas joyriding, as much fun as that may be. Prior to any showing of properties, you will be asked to complete a Buyer’s Agency Agreement.
