Why should you
work with us? We
are not real salespeople. We will not try to force certain
properties at you or try to talk you into something you don't want.
We know the area and the Smoky Mountain real estate market. We
will find the property you want without applying any pressure. We
locate the properties fitting your description and do what we can to
give you the information needed to make a sound buying decision.
If you really want a salesperson who will talk you into buying
something, we are probably not your best choice. If a property is not
a good match for you, but you like it for some reason, we will most likely
try to talk you out of it.
It is one of our flaws. We like to put our two cents in all
the time. We only want to work with buyers who really want to
work with us. We have made a great deal of friends since we
started real estate. Don't be afraid to talk to us, we are
Who Represents You In A Real Estate Transaction?
Please be aware that you are not
actually represented by anyone upon first contact. The
real estate salespeople or developer's employees you will meet and
speak with on your search are not "your agent". You
are simply a customer upon first contact. To be safe,
you must enter into a written agreement to be represented.
You contact the listing broker of a property. Prior to
making an offer, you share that you are pre-approved for more than
the asking price. Since the seller is the listing broker's
client, he/she is obligated to pass any facts obtained that could
affect the transaction. Who do you
think will benefit from this information?
What is the
difference between a Customer and a Client? We have placed a free
search on this website for your use in researching properties in
the Great Smoky Mountain area. As a customer you are free to search this site and ask questions.
Real estate salespeople cannot legally represent you until you become a
Once a Buyer Agency Agreement is signed, the Agent is prohibited from disclosing any of the buyer's confidential
As your BUYER AGENT we strictly represent YOU, the BUYER. This legal distinction is important to understand because agents for the SELLER conduct the majority of today's real estate transactions.
We represent you exclusively and our sole objective is to ensure that the best interests of YOU, the buyer, are protected.
We serve as a loyal advocates and advisors whenever a
client seeks to lease, exchange or purchase:
Investment Cabins, Log Homes, Chalets and Vacation Homes
Single-Family Homes or Condominiums
Multi-Family Apartment Buildings, Office Buildings, Hotels,
Motels, Retail Stores, Industrial Facilities and Business
How will David and Autumn Hackney help you find the perfect property to meet your needs?
As your Buyer Agent, we stand ready to assist you in your real
estate needs, from start to finish. The moment you contact us, we do an in-depth interview to gain a complete understanding of your needs.
We don't push you at properties. (This may be a new sales concept to you). You may have a limited amount of time you can spend looking for your new home
or investment. Don't worry, we get to know our clients' likes and dislikes in properties so
we won't waste your time showing properties that don't fit your specific needs.
We do a thorough search of the Multiple Listing Service for all properties that
fit your profile. We can give you an honest view of the real estate market and provide you with all material facts and figures that could influence your buying decision.
How will I
be kept informed of the latest "Hot" properties?
We search the MLS for
you every day! As our client, you will receive weekly (sometimes daily)
listing updates for all properties that fit your specific needs. There is no
need to worry about "Hot" properties passing you by! We are the only source you need for
properties here in Pigeon Forge, Sevierville and Gatlinburg Tennessee. As
REALTORS®, member of both the Knoxville (David) and Great Smoky Mountain Boards
can represent you in any real estate transaction in either MLS. We know how to do all the legwork to make your relocation go as smoothly as possible, so you can concentrate on more important things. Enjoy your move here in the Great Smoky Mountains.
How much does it cost to become a
Agency services are at no additional cost! There are no hidden charges. How is this possible? All fees are paid from the agreement previously negotiated between the seller and listing agent/broker.
Our commission is based on how much the listing agent has offered in our Realtor MLS. All
we ask is that you sign a Buyer's Agent representation form that allows us to represent you, the Buyer, in your real estate transaction.
The agency form is only for this area of East Tennessee.
How would my interests be protected
if I am interested in one of your listings?
If you are interested in purchasing one of our listings, we will either back down to the role of a facilitator or have another agent in our office represent your interests.
We want to be sure your best interests are taken into consideration and you
are completely comfortable with the transaction.
How will you
help me after the sale?
You will also have the opportunity to have your cabin, condo or chalet featured on our web site as a rental property
free of charge! The extra advertising might make you some extra cash
after you purchase a property. Allow our family to help yours today!
Privacy, Need to be discreet in your purchase? We understand. Allow us to represent your interests as your buyer's agents today!
How can a buyer agency agreement save you money?
A listing agent gets paid a commission from their clients
when the property is sold. We, as buyer's agents
do not. Other buyer's agents may charge a fee but we do not for any listed
properties. We get paid from the listing agent/brokerage. When a listing is entered in the MLS, the listing
agent offers up a percentage of their commission to any agent who can bring a buyer.
Some would say we work for the listing agent's scraps. We don't mind though. We like working with buyers, especially buyers from other areas.
Think of the convenience.
As your agent, we can show you all the properties fitting your
needs, instead of directing you at only specific properties. No more calling every listing agent for every home you find. A listing
agent is obligated to sell his/her clients' properties. We, as buyer's agents, are obligated to work for you. We
research the market and email
all listed properties fitting your description.
We do your homework. Once you narrow down the properties, we research comparable sold properties and verify tax records for you. You then will have seen all
matching your description and have the information needed to make your best offer. A listing agent is obligated to get
the best price for their client.
We want you, the buyer, to get the best deal.
