Online PR News – 25-November-2010 – – Barrington, IL â€“ Illinois real estate broker Corinne Guest who specializes in Barrington real estate and luxury homes, has launched a new website geared exclusively to Barrington home buyers. Guest, a broker who closely follows the real estate market in Barrington, chose buyer agency as her specialty as she wants home buyers to have the ability to hire their own representation.
â€śMost buyers use the internet to research homes for sale in Barrington but I wanted to be able to provide more information about our area all in one invaluable resource. Buyers are better served if they have an agent working for them as opposed to using the listing agent, it often saves them money and there is no conflict of interest.â€ť
She says she'd much rather be a niche player in the Barrington Illinois real estate market than try to be all things to all people. The luxury home market is a niche she is passionate about, and she believes her expertise will ensure her buyers make better buying decisions.
"Many buyers become familiar with the listing agents by their signs in the ground or paper print ads and consider thatâ€™s a good person to approach. They may not fully understand the implications of working with a listing agent, even though it must be explained. An agent working both sides of a deal is a dual agent and this is a practice I absolutely will not follow. Hiring your own buyerâ€™s agent when looking for Barrington homes, provides you with dedicated representation. â€ť
Asked what makes her role as real estate agent different than most, she is quick to point out that she is exclusively a buyer's agent in Barrington. That means she does not list property for sale but represents the buyer exclusively and energetically throughout the negotiating process.
How is the Barrington market fairing? She says that Barrington is a buyerâ€™s market and prices have come down considerably over the last 5 years, with properties taking on average 7 months to sell. This is in part to over-priced listings requiring price reductions before attracting a buyer.
"I work hard to stay abreast of Barrington real estate prices and market data, and make the information available to my clients past and future on the site and on my blogâ€ť says Guest
