Consumers should always retain the services of independent real estate brokers who are members of the RCIIQ. First, they are qualified professionals and they hold a Québec official real estate broker license. In average, they have twenty years of experience which shows their stability and commitment to give excellent service to their clients.
They know how to choose their colleagues. They work with various professionals from related lines of activities to complete the most significant transaction of a lifetime: buying a home. Also, since they are part of the most impressive group of real estate brokers – there are approximately 7,000 independent brokers in Québec – you can take advantage of their colleagues' specialized expertise in all other sectors such as agricultural, commercial, industrial, land, leasing, etc.
1. Independent real estate brokers: a pledge of security
Le Réseau des courtiers immobiliers indépendants du Québec
is the only recognized organization in Québec that deals severely with any member who is recognized of being guilty of breaches to the code of ethics. It applies disciplinary measures and judicial sanctions. These measures
go much further than the internal rules of any major franchise. They are also more rigorous than the Customer Service Quality Certification (certification Qualité Service à la clientèle
) established by the Fédération des Chambres immobilières du Québec.
2. The “QUALITY”
of service guarantee
Independent real estate brokers who are members of the RCIIQ, like Benoît Hamel, are trained professionals having a thorough knowledge of their community. Mr. Hamel acts responsibly and is an advocate of transparency. He takes all the time needed to explain his service proposal and compensation method. He is available and accessible. He puts at its clients' disposal his entire network of qualified experts. He is open to comments from his clients and takes the necessary measures to make any adjustment whenever needed.
3. Peace of mind
Independent real estate brokers who are members of the RCIIQ use their skills to ensure smooth real estate transactions. After a thorough analysis of your needs, the independent broker fully assumes his consulting role to find a property for sale and choose the right fit for you. He also takes charge of the administrative, financial or legal aspects. The holder of an official license, the independent broker allows you to benefit from an additional protection in case of omission, negligence or fraud.
4. Saving time and money
Nowadays, with consumers' fast-paced lifestyle, buying a house or condo is not always easy. Independent brokers have specific knowledge of the market and of all the real estate mechanisms. They can help clients get a good head start with their project. They see to everything from basic research to validation of various elements in order to protect their clients' interests. They negotiate in such a way for clients to benefit from the most favourable conditions.
