WITH TECHNOLOGY, ARE BROKERS NOW IRRELEVANT?

Now that technology has taken over our lives, some people question the need for agents to be involved in real estate transactions. At WEA, we work in the high-end areas of Los Angeles, Malibu, and Miami and specialize in single-family residences and deluxe condominiums. Given that our average sale last year once again exceeded $9m, there is nothing average about the homes and buyers we represent.

Every person and property we represent is distinct from one another. There are no “cookie cutters” in our world. This means that each property must be personally evaluated so that we may facilitate a match between seller and buyer. There are countless particulars specific to each residence: age, style, size of house, size of land, floor-plan, amenities such as pool and tennis court, privacy, security, and more.

Technology can only give someone a small glimpse on a device as to what you really need to see in person, and that’s why your broker will ALWAYS be important in showing a house. Once the right property is found, the broker negotiates to get the best deal possible. Then, escrow is opened, inspections and due diligence commence, and perhaps a loan is required. Unfortunately, no matter how sophisticated technology becomes, these requirements to buying a residence will never be eliminated.

The bottom line is that you NEED a broker to represent you when selling or buying a home. We are here to stay, so why not choose the best.

At WEA, we believe we are the best. We have experienced agents, almost 20 years of successful negotiations and transactions, and the ability to overcome any challenges that arises. Contact us and let us show you.

We listen and we execute.
