Our family was relocating to Utah after 5 years in Japan. Although we had done lots of internet searching for houses we really had no idea as to neighborhoods, schools, shopping, etc. The "house hunting" experience was old even before we left Japan.
In doing our initial research into rates, lenders and trying to learn about neighborhoods we came across advertisements for an EBA (Exclusive Buyer's Agent). Although we have owned several properties both as primary and rentals, we had not heard of a Buyers Agent. I have always disliked the idea that the selling agent was also my buying agent. The idea that the agent would be working for us and getting us the best deal was appealing. After a couple of emails and phone calls, enter Homebuyer Representation and Ben Clark.
We had some very specific needs and boundaries we wanted to stay within and from the very first day Ben listened. Besides listening to what we needed, Ben offered suggestions that were absolutely pertinent and helpful. After reviewing close to one hundred houses we got down to fifteen we wanted to view. Ben met us, showed us the houses and offered his years of knowledgeable experience in evaluating the house, neighborhood and financial growth potential. His evaluation and expertise were invaluable in our ultimate decision.
Ben handled the negotiations professionally and it was quickly obvious that he truly worked for us. He negotiated a well below market and appraised value sale and the inclusion of numerous additional items. When the sellers failed to meet the closing deadline he negotiated a rental agreement that reduced the total sale price even further and allowed us to move into the house on the original closing date.
Ben kept us informed as to the progress of the sale and whenever the seller missed a deadline he negotiated something else beneficial to us.
Where was this guy when we purchased our former homes!?
We have been in our home for just over two months and are very happy with the house, the EBA (Exclusive Buyer's Agent), and in particular Ben Clark. We can not speak to the enthusiasm or professionalism of other Buyer's Agents but we can unequivocally recommend Ben Clark to anyone that seeks to maximize their buying potential.
