BROKER'S ROLE: Customers ask
many questions of our Brokers
when being shown through a property
and most prefer to do this in
privacy. It is better if you

property. The customer usually
feels more relaxed. If you need
to be present, please don’t
discuss terms, price, etc. Refer
all questions to the broker.
BE AVAILABLE: If a customer
is put off, you may lose the
sale. Keep your Broker informed
of how to reach you at all times.
Your Broker will always try
to arrange appointments with
you in advance. Always be prepared
to show your property on the
spur of the moment.
