Land Acquisition


“My wife and I had always hoped to own a piece of heaven in California, but high land prices around Los Angeles led us to look elsewhere. While on an exploratory trip to Northern California, we learned of For Buyers Only Realty. On very short notice, to accommodate our hectic schedule, Gene Berman arranged to meet with us. After learning precisely what we were seeking, he determined that his knowledge of our area of primary interest was not deep enough to do the job he would hope to do (imagine a real estate person making that confession). But he mentioned he had just completed, for another client, the purchase of a property listed by a knowledgeable, competent broker in Lake County that primarily served our area of focus. While we were seated in his office, Gene arranged for us to speak with that broker. Minutes later, we were looking at a lengthy fax of property listings that might suit us. After we decided to use this broker’s services, Gene formally referred us under a written agreement that prohibited them from doing a dual-agent deal (representing both the seller and us) to ensure that we’d receive the loyal, committed representation of our interests only (just the way it would have been if Gene had been representing us). We made one more trip up to Lake County, found just the property we wanted, and with Gene’s generous counsel throughout the transaction, made quite a good deal. Talk about a network geared for success!”
